Adrian Lewis started a war of words with Gerwyn Price after setting up a showdown in the last-16 of the World Matchplay.
The fourth seed completed a 10-6 win over Mark Webster to pave the way for a revenge match against Price, who dumped 'Jackpot' out of last year's tournament.
Lewis insists Price picked up a 'lucky' victory and vowed to set the record straight in their latest encounter.
He told Sky Sports: "I'll tell you one thing, Gerwyn Price had one lucky game last year, and that was against me.
"I'll turn him over, no problem."
The pair later exchanged words on Twitter and Price, a former rugby player, took a swipe at Lewis' physical condition after they were compared to boxers.
He tweeted: "Think I'm the only one who would last 12 rounds there, although I think it would be a second round KO."
Lewis was quick to respond and the two rivals will settle their differences on Tuesday night, live on Sky Sports.
The former two-time world champion tweeted: "He's a big mouth who's never won anything and never will win anything as he's got no respect for anyone."
Watch Adrian Lewis against Gerwyn Price as part of Tuesday night's schedule at the World Matchplay, starting at 7pm on Sky Sports 3.
