WATCH: Tyson Fury Tells Critics To "Suck My ......" (Video)
December 8, 2015
It looks like the new heavyweight champion Tyson Fury is making good on his statement before his upset victory over Wladimir Klitschko that he is “not a role model.” In an absurd ringside interview from the other night, Tyson Fury shot back at those who have criticized him, both inside the ring and outside the ring for some things that he has said about women and homosexuals by plainly telling them to “suck his b***s.” You can see for yourself at the 1:52 mark in the video below.
Over 50,000 people have signed a petition to remove Fury as finalist for the BBC’s Sports Personality of the year award because of many of the outrageous things he has said about women and homosexuals. In addition to telling critics to “suck his b***s,” he also called the people who signed the petition against him “50,000 wankers.”
Tyson Fury is known just as much for his antics and mind games as he is for his rare boxing ability and athleticism for a man of 6’9 and 240+ lbs. There was no shortage bizarre antics and mind games before his stunning unanimous decision defeat over longtime former heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko a week and a half ago. Fury dressed as batman in a pre-fight presser beating up someone dressed as the joker, Fury accused Klitschko of being a “devil worshipper,” Fury threatened to pull out of the fight twice during fight week (because he didn’t like the gloves and because the ring canvas was too soft), and during the open media workouts, Fury decided to taunt Klitschko by singing to him. He even told Wladimir that he thought he smelled like women’s perfume at the final press conference before the fight.
And to continue his ridiculous antics, he sang Aerosmith “I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing” to his wife and the crowd after his victory over Klitschko last Saturday.
Fury is a devout christian, which has possibly contributed to his views on women and gays.
Klitschko will exercise a rematch clause to face Fury again to win back his heavyweight title belts. Fury and Klitschko’s rematch will surely be the most hyped heavyweight title fight in years, and will likely take place in either April or May of next year. While Fury is open to having it in Germany again, Klitschko’s home base, he and his team are reportedly pushing for the rematch to take place at Wembley Stadium in London. Klitschko has opened up as a small betting favorite.
