Fury Denies He Typed "Gays Should All Be Shot Dead"

Undefeated British heavyweight Tyson Fury has apologized for making abusive comments about the British/Commonwealth champion David Price – and for a tweet posted on his timeline which said "dont like gays shoul all b shot dead."

Fury is already facing possible action from the British Boxing Board of Control after posting a video on Twitter which said: "David Price, I'm going to put you in intensive care, that's for sure mate. And you know your gay lover Tony Bellew? He's got to fight me in between the rounds as well. I want the two of you, you pair of tossers.

However, he insists that a homophobic tweet which suggested all gay people should be shot was not posted by him.

"I was out of order for calling people names and the outbursts I've done, and I'd like to apologize for that," Fury told The Guardian paper. "But the tweet was nothing to do with me. As you know, I get a lot of abuse on Twitter. And while I'm abroad on training camp I train three times a day often for two hours a time, and I haven't got time to respond to all the people that ask questions. So I give my phone to my cousins at the camp. They're only young lads and they give abuse back. Today I've come back and they were laughing about calling some people some names and whatever.

"When I found out what they had done I was furious. I said: 'Listen, it's not a funny subject this. You shouldn't get involved in people's sexuality.' And I've got the phone back off them instantly and explained to my followers that those comments weren't mine. I've got friends of my own who are gay and it's the 21st century so who cares who is gay and who ain't?. People who know me will tell you I've had many a good night out with a few gay people I know. Whatever they are it's none of my business and it's got nothing to do with boxing."
