FLASHBACK: When Tyson Fury became a stand-up comedian on the BBC

World Boxing News 17/10/2018

Tyson Fury did his bit for Sport Relief back in 2012 in trying his hand a stand-up comedy.

In the video clip, originally broadcast by the BBC, Fury – along with friends and family, are seen being paid a visit by comic Dan Sloss.

Sloss attempted to help Fury get ready for his big performance, which by memory seemed to go down quite well on the night.

But actual footage of the routine has seemingly dropped off the face of the earth.

WBN originally posted a full-length version of Fury’s gags, although the video has since been discontinued.

BBC Three have also removed the episode from their archives.

If anyone has a clip of Tyson Fury’s full Stand up for Sport Relief routine from 2012 please contact Editor Phil Jay at phildjay.wbn@gmail.com

Training for the fight of his life against Deontay Wilder on December 1 in Los Angeles, Fury is grafting hard. The 30 year old is in camp at Big Bear in California.

Going through his daily grind alongside 2016 Olympic silver medallist Joe Joyce, Fury seems to be enjoying his new surroundings.

Wilder holds the WBC heavyweight title. The only belt Fury has failed to win in his career thus far.

The fight is set to be broadcast on Showtime Pay-Per-View.
