Tyson Fury issues apology for ‘ungodly actions’
Heavyweight bruiser Tyson Fury has apologised for his recent behaviour at the press conference for his rematch with Dereck Chisora after complaints were filed from those present.
The British Boxing Board of Control issued a statement outlining their intentions to discuss Fury’s foul-mouthed rant and aggressive demeanour in London on Monday, which has prompted the 25 year-old to take to his social media account in response.
“I apologise for my ungodly actions at the press (conference) recently with Dereck Chisora,” said Fury. “There was no bad feelings or intentions (on my part). (It was) just a show. Forgive me.”
Fury went on: “Boxing has been good to me (as) it has brought me security, health and kept me out of trouble, so I thank everyone who has been involved in my career.”
According to trainer and uncle Peter Fury, this week’s outburst could be attributed to fight week taking hold on the back of a long delay since Fury last took part in a massive main event as his charge has fought just once in over a year.
Two failed attempts to get British rival David Haye in the ring resulted in a lengthy spell on the sidelines for Fury before his easily took care of Joey Abell in February, and he has promised to take out his frustration on Chisora next week in Manchester.
