That’s no way to talk about your cornerman, is it?

The ongoing feud between (an apparently serious) Mike Perry and (a clearly trolling) Darren Till looks to be continuing, after Perry once again issued a threat towards the Englishman on social media where he vowed to leave Till ‘spitting out teeth’ and said that he would follow him to middleweight to ensure that happens.

You said it years ago Darren Till and you were right. You and me were meant to fight. I’m going up to middleweight and I’ll be small and fast and you’ll be big and slow. I’m gonna ruin your life. You’ll be spitting out teeth much sooner than expected…” Perry said.

This is the latest testy exchange between the two and comes just days after Till announced his intention to bid $5,000 in an online auction to be Perry’s cornerman for his upcoming fight with former welterweight champion Robbie Lawler next month. Several other bids were also made, including one from former porn star Kendra Lust and another from the adult streaming service, CamSoda. It remains to be seen if Perry will accept any of these offers.

The chances of Perry and Till meeting in the cage, though, appear slim. Disregarding for a moment the fact that the two are separated by a weight class, Till has his hands full in a bout with Jack Hermansson later this month and has also done something which no ranked fighter at welterweight or middleweight has done yet — call out Khamzat Chimaev.
