Tyson Fury returned to social media to warn his rival Dillian Whyte that he will be "getting knocked the f*** out" when they meet in the ring later this month.
The pair meet on April 23 at Wembley Stadium in a hotly anticipated all-British boxing bout, with the WBC world heavyweight championship on the line. It will by the Gypsy King's second defence of that title, having successfully navigated his trilogy fight with Deontay Wilder last October.
He is deep in training for his latest fight, and had handed over control of all his social media accounts to his PR team so it wouldn't be a distraction. Fury broke that blackout on Tuesday, though, as he fired a less-than-subtle warning at his opponent.
"Hey guys Tyson Fury here," he said at the start of the video clip. "Just a quick update to let you know camp is going really well, less than three weeks out. Cannot wait to see you all the in the big smoke at Wembley Stadium."
The man from Manchester then turned his attention to his opponent, and seemed to have little doubt about what the outcome of the bout will be. "Dillian Whyte is getting knocked the f*** out man!" he added. "Cannot wait, see you all there – all my loyal fans. God bless you all."

It is the latest unfriendly barb between the two in a fight build-up which has not been short of tension. Whyte failed to show up at the first press conference, claiming that he had not been properly invited, while the Body Snatcher is also believed to be angry at the 80-20 purse split in his opponent's favour.
Meanwhile, the undercard for the fight was announced on Tuesday, which features the Gypsy King's younger brother Tommy Fury.
It didn't go down too well with many fans online, however, as some were fuming that Tommy has "ducked" Jake Paul and others moaned that the quality of the fights on offer is "gutter level".
And it has also been announced that there will be no British officials on duty for the fight, in a move welcomed by Fury. "We don't want any British judges for this fight, we want proper experienced judges who will do the right thing and if Dillian Whyte beats me, give him the decision," he said.
"Do not try and rob anybody in this fight, give the man the decision, give him what he deserves, and if I win then do the same for me. In boxing, these fighters don't want any gifts, they don't want robbery decisions. They just want to win if they win and lose if they lose. We've seen so many boxing decisions go the opposite way and I just think, 'what are they watching'?
"And as for the fight the other night, both fighters tried their best and done what they can do best. It's not for me to say who won or lost because I know both guys and it was a good fight, I watched it. It was a great fight for the fans."
