JOHN FURY has threatened to SPANK Eddie Hearn if he doesn't 'sign the f***ing contract' for son Tyson Fury's fight with Anthony Joshua.
The Gypsy King, 32, and AJ have been set to go toe-to-toe in their all-British heavyweight unification fight since last February, when Fury beat Deontay Wilder to clinch the WBC belt.
But with the months melting by and still no contracts signed – with Fury claiming there are FOUR sticking points – dad John has lashed out at Joshua's promoter.
When asked for his thoughts on Hearn, Fury Sr told IFL TV: “Don’t know him.
"I know Barry and the man’s never done me no harm. He’s always been right with me, the father, I don’t know the son.
“I don’t know him but he seems a bit arrogant to me.
“Cracked up the ear hole. Thats’s what you get round me in a second.
“I pull rank on them kind of people because I can. He’s not going to talk to me like that because I’ll stretch him."
John then roared: “I’ll spank him like a kid and I don’t care if he sees this or not because it’s true.
“I don’t take the bulls*** mate, sign the document. You have it in front of you, sign it. Sign the f***ing contract.”

After hearing John's comments, Hearn hilariously replied: “You know I’m scared by big John Fury.
“Can he just not do it too hard?"
Hearn then claimed John WILL get his wish as the Joshua-Fury fights edges yet closer.
AJ's promoter said: “John Fury’s going to get his wish.
"We’re going to have a lot of fun in the build-up to the biggest fight in boxing.
"We are in, we are in. Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide.
“The undisputed king is going to be Anthony Joshua and this fight will happen…
“This fight is on, trust me.”
But Fury is in confident mood ahead of the monster showdown, saying he could beat AJ with one hand tied behind his back.
Fury told ESPN: "He only fought in December, so December – June is only six months out the ring.
"So, he'll be a full year ahead of me in activity. But, I'm that much in front of him with skill, a year of inactivity doesn't really do that much.
"But you can never beat being match-fit and being active and being out regular, any fighter will tell you the same.
"If you're out regular and you're match-fit, then you should be able to beat people that are inactive, that's for sure.
"But I don't make excuses, I had three-years out the ring, came back and beat Deontay Wilder's ass.
"So, I'm sure I can beat Anthony Joshua with one arm tied behind my back, even after being out the ring for 16 months."
SunSport understands a deal is set to be announced at the start of March and a non-disclosure agreement is keeping discussions top secret.
