“Grow a pair and sign the contract, big boy!” Fury told Good Morning Britain.

“Let’s hope this fight happens,” he added. “I’m willing to take the fight, I don’t know if they are. I’ve been willing to take the fight for the last five years. It’s not happened so far, but I’m very optimistic that it will happen in 2021.”
