FRANK MALONEY this week lashed out at the fighter he calls "Rent-a-quote motormouth," Tyson Fury, who made a scathing verbal attack on Maloney's fighters.
Fury, unbeaten in seven fights has criticised the quality of heavyweight boxing on Maloney bills, but the London promoter reckons the mouthy Mancunian must be suffering from amnesia.
Maloney said: "Perhaps Fury had a hard spar that day when he made those comments, and I'll forgive him if he did.
"I would say my track record with heavyweights is better than anybody in British boxing," said the promoter - proud of his record guiding Newham-born Lennox Lewis to world heavyweight stardom.

"My work with Lennox is there for all to see, and I helped discover Nikolai Valuev and John Ruiz - one great world champion and two decent ones.
"They aren't bad fighters to have on your bills. Let's be honest, Fury wouldn't have been allowed in the same city as Lennox, let alone the same ring!

"Domestically, I got Julius Francis pay-days Fury can only dream of. I wonder if Tyson's connections will do the same?"
And Maloney reckons Fury should be more worried about his own promoter: "If Mick Hennessy had such belief in him, why did he get blown out of the water by me in the purse bids for this fight?
"Fury and Mick are quick to tell the world he is the greatest heavyweight hope in the world, but he obviously can't be that valued, because he is the away fighter in his first title fight.
