CONFIDENT John Fury has offered David Haye a million pound bet that son Tyson will beat Brit rival Anthony Joshua.
And a riled John even gave ex-heavyweight champ Haye odds of 2/1 in his favour after he had “a bit of a go” at Tyson.

WBC king Fury and WBA, IBF and WBO champion Joshua are finally expected to face off in a mammoth unification bout next year.
The potential bout has the world of boxing talking and John tried to get Haye to put his money where his mouth is.
The pair disagreed over who would win the fight on the latest episode of BT Sport’s Lockdown Knockdown show.
And Tyson’s dad John was annoyed by Haye’s “Mr Invincible” barb aimed at the current WBC champion.
Haye said: “If anyone on the planet is able to somehow find a way to beat Mr Invincible…”
And John interrupted: “I know you’re having a bit of a go there. He is Mr Invincible.
“How much do you want to put down on it? Shall we start with £1million?”
A grinning Haye hit back: “No, let’s definitely not go with £1million.”

But John was so adamant he said: “And I’ll give you 2/1, how’s that? He is Mr Invincible because he’s proved it.”
Haye laughed: “I’m not betting against you, ever.”
Matchroom Boxing boss Eddie Hearn revealed this week that the pay-per-view showdown would likely set fans back £30 to watch.
Speaking to IFL TV, Hearn said: “I would think that if the AJ fights moving forwards are £24.95 – Sky’s decision, or whoever else is broadcasting the fight with Sky – I would think £29.95 would be the price point for that fight.”
