TYSON FURY launched an X-rated assault to being snubbed by Anthony Joshua's camp for his next fight.
The reigning WBC heavyweight champ was reacting to promoter Frank Warren saying AJ had rejected the chance to fight Fury in August.
Warren told talkSPORT that AJ's team did not want to fight Fury ahead of a scheduled clash with Deontay Wilder in December, despite having a provisional date in August available.
Fury posted quotes from Warren's interview to his Instagram story and labelled AJ a "proper p***y boy" before taking out his frustration on Oleksandr Usyk.
He said: "Usyk is a p***y so is AJ."
The jibe comes after months of speculation that Fury would fight either AJ or Usyk.

“Last week, a written proposal was sent to Matchroom for AJ to fight Tyson in September.
“A couple of days went by, and George (Warren's son) met yesterday with AJ’s management company.
"They confirmed that AJ is fighting in Dubai in December, that is his preferred route."
Warren was frustrated by the fact Eddie Hearn had earmarked August 12 for Joshua's second outing of the year, provisionally reserving the O2 Arena.
He said: "There is a space open in August, but they basically do not want to do the fight."
Fury has not fought since his bout at The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in December against Derek Chisora.
Fury's criticism of Usyk comes after a proposed fight to unify all four belts in April fell through.
The two have since traded jibes online, with Usyk saying: "The ball is on #Greedybelly’s side now. We did everything in our power to make it happen."
