Fury gags himself in protest
22 Sep 2014 16:04
Tyson Fury wore tape over his mouth and refused to utter a single word on Monday in protest against his fine from the British Boxing Board of Control.
-
Fury was handed a misconduct charge and fined £15,000 for his behaviour at a press conference in June, when the 26-year-old launched into a number of expletive-ridden rants at Dereck Chisora and journalists.
-
The tape strapped across Fury's mouth had 'BBB of C' and question marks written across it.
-
Fury will face Chisora for a second time on 29 November at London's ExCel after winning the first bout on points in 2011.
-
Promoter Mick Hennessy, speaking on Fury's behalf, said: "At the end of the day you need characters to be able to be themselves whatever they're confronted with.
-
"Sometimes you're going to get a gentleman with Tyson and sometimes, if he's rubbed up the wrong way, you'll get another side of him.
-
"At the end of the day surely he should be allowed to be himself.
-
"We could be in jeopardy of this fight not happening - we all want the fight to happen so that's what this is about."
