Tyson Fury has told Deontay Wilder he has a "long way to go" before he gets a fight with the British heavyweight.

Wilder knocked out Audley Harrison inside the first round on Saturday in Sheffield, extending his professional record to 28 knockout victories in 28 fights.

The American immediately called out Fury in the aftermath, but the Manchester fighter took to Twitter to disparage the upstart.

Fury described Wilder as "windmilling like a b***h" as the contest came to a conclusion, before sarcastically applauding the fighter for managing to beat 41-year-old Harrison.

In a tweet directed at Wilder, Fury said: "Long way to go boy, windmilling like a b***h and KO'ing an old man, great job! Join the big queue [to fight me]!"
