Tyson Fury says he will relocate to America after his rematch with Wladimir Klitschko because he does not feel accepted in this country.

The 27-year-old will defend his WBA and WBO heavyweight titles against the Ukrainian in Manchester on July 9 and after that he is ready to pack his bags and head across the Atlantic Ocean.

Fury, who has courted outrage with a string of controversial comments on homosexuality and abortion, believes he is treated like a "bum" in the United Kingdom and deserves better.

He told a number of national newspapers: "I am not accepted in this country. I am a gypsy and that's it. I will always be a gypsy, I'll never change. I will always be fat and white and that's it.

"I am the champion yet I am thought of as a bum. I am moving out of the country. I am going to America where champions are better thought of.

"I am moving to Los Angeles where people have a better life. I made the decision last week to go where people admire success."

Fury brands Joshua a 'pumped up weightlifter'

Tyson Fury has branded Anthony Joshua a "pumped up weightlifter" and warned Wladimir Klitschko he is for "another hiding" in their re-match this summer.

Fury, the WBA and WBO heavyweight champion, defeated Klitschko on points in Germany last November and will go up against the Ukrainian again on July 9 at the MEN Arena.

Anticipation is also growing around a potential all-British unification fight with Joshua, who clinched the IBF title on Saturday after beating defending champion Charles Martin at London's O2 Arena.

Fury called out Joshua immediately after the victory, labelling him "slow" and "ponderous" on Twitter, and he continued his war of words with the London 2012 gold medallist on Wednesday.

"I thought he looked like a pumped up weightlifter, out of his mind on drugs," Fury said of Joshua's win.

"He fought an American who came to lay down and had about as much fight in him as this glass of water there, zero."
