Watch: Tyson Fury play fights with BBC SPOTY star Bailey Matthews

Phil Jay 22/12/2015

World heavyweight champion Tyson Fury once again showed his softer side as the three-belt title holder met up his BBC Sports Personality of the Year star Bailey Matthews.

Fury was relaxing with family members in Belfast during the event when the BBC SPOTY nominee gave up some of his own time to engage with the brave young eight-year-old who suffers from cerebral palsy.

Matthews stole hearts when winning the Helen Rollason for outstanding achievement in the face of adversity at the awards ceremony on Sunday after completing his first triathlon unaided despite his impairment.

The pair traded punches playfully until Fury scored a knockout of his own with a tickling move that had Matthews out for the count.
