Tyson Fury insists he is "not interested" in the misconduct charge he is facing from the British Boxing Board of Control and he does not regret the behaviour that prompted it.
The 25-year-old has been summoned to appear before the BBBofC on August 13 as a result of his antics a week ago at a press conference to promote his forthcoming rematch against fellow British heavyweight Dereck Chisora.
Fury launched a string of expletives at both his opponent and one of the journalists in attendance at the media event in London.
On Thursday the BBBofC released a statement saying that after considering what happened, it had decided to call the Manchester fighter to a meeting "under Regulation 25 (misconduct)", adding that "failure to attend this hearing will result in Mr. Fury's boxer's licence being suspended."
"I'm not interested.
"They can charge me with whatever they want, it doesn't mean anything to me.
"What do we suppose they are going to be doing - fining me or suspending me? I'm not interested.
"I pay the board their wages. Keep being mean to me, and I will look elsewhere to pay someone else some wages."
Fury conducted interviews at a media session in Bolton in the final build-up to the contest, which takes place on Saturday at Manchester's Phones 4u Arena.
"I say what I say and I do what I do. I don't regret it - I mean everything I say and that is it," he said.
"I'm not the kind of man to say something and not back it up. I said what I said, I do what I do and I'm proud of it.
"No-one is going to stop me from doing anything I want to do. That is the way I roll.
"I don't do anything criminal, so I'm not going to get taken away in a set of handcuffs.
"This is boxing - showbusiness, entertainment. I do what I do and say what I say to build big fights and if I was 'Mr Quiet', nobody would be interested."
Fury (22-0, 16 KOs) and 30-year-old Chisora (20-4, 13 KOs) also at last week's press conference shook hands on a bet, which the former has confirmed was for #100,000, on the outcome of their clash.
But if Fury wins the fight, it seems he will not be chasing Chisora for the money.
"It happened, and it was £100,000, but I don't think he is going to pay up," Fury said.
"I wouldn't want him to anyway. Getting a beating off me is one thing - taking his money as well is another. So I'm not really interested in the bet to be honest."
The showdown is a final eliminator for the WBO world title, which is currently held by Wladimir Klitschko, also the WBA and IBF champion - although Fury is convinced the 38-year-old Ukrainian does not want to fight him before retiring.
Chisora's European belt and the vacant British title will also be up for grabs on Saturday. The pair met first time around in 2011, with Fury triumphing on points.
Historians have pieced together the story of a boxer, from Manchester, who was denied a British title shot in the 1920s because he was black.
Len Johnson was kept from reaching the peak of his sport, because boxing regulations banned title bouts between anyone except white fighters.
Those who have researched his story say the sport's organisers believed seeing black and white fighters square-up, for boxing's greatest prizes, would have "challenged the foundations" of the British Empire.
Len did win a "Northern area" title, and an "Empire" title in Australia, but was never permitted to challenge for any of the official British titles.
He eventually quit boxing in frustration, turning to politics to fight racism. The fighter joined the civil defence services to rescue people from bombed-out houses during World War Two.
