    Sad stupid pratt. I hope his professional body take action. I don’t a joke but you know in boxing there are gay boxers and they need positive messages to be all they can be.

    A quick apology would help at least.

  2. I’m surprised the imbecile can even type.

  3. Tyson Fury is a traveller.

    I know that travellers pretend to be some discriminated against group of people instead of the ignorant criminal scum they actually are.

    Tyson Fury embodies all that is wrong about traveller life.

      you are obviously a bigot.

  4. When it comes to travellers it is worth remembering that their decision to live on the road and to be violent criminals who abuse everyone they meet is purely a lifestyle choice.

    They are not an ethnic group which is distinct from civilised Irish people. They choose to be ignorant, violent criminals which this bigot Tyson Fury embodies so well.

    Perhaps I am wrong but I suspect no-one wants to live near travellers. They ruin everywhere they go.

      some would say this about many African Americans, latinos etc. You are obviously a bigot as well. The Romani culture is a distinct ethnic people…just like the Jews.

  5. Bizarre when you consider that the name Tyson Fury sounds like a name for a gay porn star.

  6. Pure ignorant envy. Lenox lewis is twice the man, and boxer than fury will ever be.

  7. Interestingly this bigot’s father is in jail for violent assault.

    Looks like his entire family is violent bigot scum.

  8. I think a certain bitchy boy has taken one too many blows to the head.

  9. Perhaps someone should send Tyson a pair of sparkly ruby slippers, such as were worn by Dorothy, in The Wizard of Oz, with instructions to put them on, close his eyes, and click his heels three times. Now, he may not wind up in Kansas, but at least he’d disappear and no one would have to have his childish tantrums inflicted on them any longer.

  10. Takes one to know one, honey …..

  11. Traveller or not his comments are objectionable in the extreme I hope the BBB of C (British Boxing Board of Control) take his licence away.

    At the very least it would be nice to see him in court being sued by Lenox Lewis and Wladimir Klitschko. That should finish the irrelevant creep, at least financially.

      Sue? To sue someone for defamation you would need to prove damage, are you saying it is damaging to be gay, or called gay? tut, tut, Mr MarkB

  12. The law of libel is an ass. A lie is a lie – damaging or not.

  13. ..honestly really it sure takes one to know one. I mean I’m not condoning this slur but everyone needs to take note that just because a man is extremely butch and muscly, And talks in a deep voice must mean he’s straight! FACT.

    listen, this specific Fury rant means nothing. Looking at the bigger picture, most boxers traditionally come from a misogynistic, homophobic and violent culture (especially black, Hispanic and Eastern European/Russian)…the Jamaican culture of which Lewis has his roots is a good example of this mindset. Many fight fans express themselves (online) in a rather crude way, in fact Fury has been a target of this slew of hate posting that has included homophobic content; Most of Fury’s post have been in response to these trolls and the format is repeated. Fury has also been continually goaded by Lewis, Haye and the media. The context of his twitter rants were such that the so called “homophobic” insults were actually generic. If they were aimed at specific individual who were ACTUALLY gay and it was coupled with hate/threatening verbiage, then there might be an issue. This is just a way for a bogus commission to gouge boxers of their cash under the guise of social policing…lame.
