Fury Admits Board's Fine May Force Him To Quiet Down

By Nick Parkinson, courtesy of The Daily Star

Tyson Fury has been hit with a £3,000 fine and told to behave himself by boxing bosses upset by his Twitter outbursts.

The 6ft 9ins Morecambe heavyweight (left) says he is now Mr Nice Guy on Twitter – after regularly ranting and raving on the social media website.

The British Boxing Board of Control has told Fury to KO his foul-mouthed tirades – online and on air – as the unbeaten star edges closer to a crack at world ­No.1 Wladimir Klitschko.

Fury, 24, is due to leave for America this week in preparation for his April 20 US debut against Yank Steve ­Cunningham at the Madison Square Garden Theatre.

He said: “I had to go in front of the board this week and got a £3,000 fine and was told to behave myself. If I do it again I’ll be in big trouble.

“People like outspoken people and I am outspoken – but when you are getting hit for three grand, it’s time to maybe quieten down a bit.

“The board has been more than lenient with me and it was a hefty fine that I will take on the chin.”
