Exclusive: Police say no further action against Tyson Fury
Greater Manchester Police have informed WBN that they have concluded their investigation into an alleged ‘hate crime’ by world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury.
The 27 year-old was under scrutiny following a complaint made by an un-named man, who was interviewed by Police this week on the back of a media storm.
After going through the relative procedures which were completed on Thursday, the GMP have released their findings in the matter.
“At 10.30am on Tuesday 8 December 2015, Greater Manchester Police received a complaint from a member of the public following comments that had been made on a national broadcast,” a Police spokesperson exclusively told World Boxing News.
“Officers spoke with the man that made the report and he provided a statement to police. This matter has been investigated in line with national hate crime policy and has been recorded as a hate incident.
“The circumstances in which these comments were made suggest that no criminal offence has taken place and this matter will not be investigated any further.”
A British Boxing Board of Control hearing has been scheduled for the New Year where the outspoken Fury is expected to expand on his comments made in an interview with a national UK newspaper and repeated again on air.
