Look / Watch: Tyson Fury’s mad weekend in pictures / video

WBN 27/06/2016

In the space of one weekend, Tyson Fury has gone from defending his triple crown against old foe Wladimir Klitschko to soaking up the football and alcohol at Euro 2016.

The 27 year-old was due to face Klitschko on July 9 in Manchester but postponed the clash on Friday citing an ankle injury that happened whilst running in the Lake District earlier this month.

Fast forward 24 hours, and UK tabloid The Mirror accused Fury and his cousin Hughie of testing positive for anabolic steroids in 2015 – which was vehemently denied by all.

By that time, Fury had already begun his booze quest and been celebrating with Northern Ireland fans by singing ‘Will Grigg’s on Fire’ in a pub.

Hitting Nice on Sunday, Fury then partied with England fans and splashed out one thousand Euros on JagerBombs for a lucky group at a second boozer.

All in all, it’s been a full-on few days for the unified world heavyweight champion who has been given four months to prepare to face Klitschko again by promoter Mick Hennessy.

A statement from Hennessy and the Fury’s denying the doping allegations featured a snippet revealing the revised date for the contest, which is expected to take place at Manchester Arena in October.
