TYSON FURY has told potential opponent Mahmoud Charr he needs “more than a hammer” to beat him.
The 37-year-old heavyweight challenger, who once survived an assassination attempt, is in talks to face the WBC champion in December.
It comes after the Gypsy King’s negotiations with Anthony Joshua, 32, officially collapsed.
But Charr said he signed a deal with promoter Frank Warren which also includes potential bouts with Dubois, 24, or Joyce, 37.
Although the Germany-based, Lebanon-born Syrian is not picky and even offered to fight them all on the SAME NIGHT.
However, he is now getting in shape for Fury and shared a snap of himself standing topless, next to a number of huge truck tyres, while holding a sledgehammer.
He captioned the snap with: “The lumberjack is ready to fell the long giraffe. I’ll shut up your big mouth. I’ve accepted your challenges!”
That led to the unbeaten Fury, 34, hilariously responding: “You would need more than a hammer moosh.”
Charr was a shock alternative for AJ, due to the fact that he has fought only twice in five years.
His last defeat came in 2015 against Mairis Briedis and just a few months later he was left fighting for his life.

Charr had been goaded online and offered to face the man behind the screen in person.
But he was subject to a drive-by shooting in a kebab shop in Essen.
Charr miraculously survived and lived to see his shooter, Youssef Hassan, sentenced to five years in prison.
He had two tune-ups fights afterwards but later needed a double hip replacement, undergoing surgery in 2017 at the age of just 32.
The same year, Charr went on to win the WBA’s secondary world title and has won his last five bouts.
