Tyson Fury has vowed to “get smashed out my f****** face” on Conor McGregor’s Proper Twelve Irish Whiskey after beating Deontay Wilder in their highly-anticipated heavyweight rematch tonight. McGregor’s company is one of the sponsors for Wilder vs Fury 2 and the UFC star treated Fury to a bottle by sending one his way before fight night.
In an interview with TheMacLife, a reporter handed Fury the bottle on behalf of Proper Twelve, prompting Fury into a response.
“Thank you very much Conor,” he told the MacLife. “I appreciate it.
“I’m going to get smashed out my f****** face after the fight. And if you’re in Vegas, let’s do it together. Boom!”
Fury claimed in December that McGregor has got in touch with him over a potential switch over to MMA following his dabbling into WWE in October.

He told RTE Radio 1: “I think Conor is an absolutely fantastic fighting man. He has offered to train me if I ever want to go into MMA.
“What better trainer could I have than The ‘Notorious’ Conor McGregor? I’m looking forward to coming to train with Conor. We’re going to get it all planned in and I should be over in Dublin quite soon.
“I’ll definitely be coming over for a training session that is for sure. I have been MMA training with Darren Till in Liverpool. I really enjoy the new challenge.
“I don’t know where or when [I’ll make my MMA debut] because after I finish my boxing career I fancy my hand at MMA as well.”

McGregor disputed Fury’s claims, however, telling BT Sport: “I know Tyson [Fury] has been talking a lot.
“Tyson keeps saying me and him spoke and said I would train him. I never spoke to Tyson in me life, so I don’t know why he’s saying that.
“It’s not a bad little story, so I let it roll. Tyson’s a good man. I like him. He’s a great boxer, phenomenal boxer. Probably the best natural boxer in the heavyweight division at this time.”
McGregor bigged up the fight earlier this week, quote-tweeting a video of the men shoving each other in the final press conference.
