Fury: If British Board Bans Me, I'll Fight in Ireland

ANGRY Tyson Fury is ready to rip up his British boxing license and fight under the Irish flag.

Fury, who was set to face Dereck Chisora in a grudge match in Manchester on Saturday, has a misconduct charge hanging over his head.

He has been summoned to appear before the British Boxing Board of Control next month following an expletive-ridden rant at a press conference last week.

But unbeaten Fury has stuck two fingers up at the Board by declaring: "I am not going to be told what to do by anybody.

"I can fight in Ireland and I can have a BUI (Boxing Union of Ireland) license because I have already had one before.

"So, if they want to ban me and keep being fools, I will just go and get a BUI licence and box out of Ireland where I am already Irish heavyweight champion.

"I am sick of them picking on me all the time. It's crazy. I won't be told what to do by them in any way, shape or form.

"The Board have fined me quite a few times and they have been harsh on me.

"Every time I open my mouth, it seems I get fined or have to go in front of them."

The misconduct hearing is scheduled for August 13, but, in another snub to the Board, 25-year-old Fury will not attend it.

He said: "I am on holiday on the date of that meeting so I won't be attending and, even if I were in the country, I wouldn't be going because I am not interested.

"I have attended these meetings before. I have heard what they have got to say. They want to treat you like a school child and pretend they are teachers and give you a smack on the wrist for being a bad boy.

"I am going on a two-week cruise, starting from Venice, going round Italy, Greece and Turkey.

"Over my career, I have earned a lot of money and the Board have taken a lot of money off me. They should be happy that I keep earning, so they are going to be sick if I go and get a BUI licence.

"Then they will get no money off me. Muhammad Ali and Mike Tyson did what I do, Floyd Mayweather does it."

Fury insists he will not alter his style, either inside or outside the ring, following the misconduct charge.

He said: "I will not be behaving like a choirboy. There's going to be a lot more misconducts, because there is plenty more in store from Tyson Fury.

"So they had better get their charge sheets out again and they can charge me with whatever they want it doesn't mean anything.

"What are they going to do? Suspend me or fine me? I'm not interested. I pay the board their wages.

"Listen, keep being mean to me and I'll look elsewhere to pay someone else their wages. That's what it is."

Saturday's fight at Manchester's Phones 4U Arena was to be an eliminator for the WBO world title - one of the three belts held by Wladimir Klitschko.

But Fury is not expecting to meet the Ukrainian any time soon, saying: "I'm not interest in Klitchsko because I know he's not going to fight.

"He's got his reasons. The fight isn't going to happen until two fighters are in the ring exchanging blows."

With Chisora pulling out last night with a hand injury, Billy Joe Saunders' bout with Emanuele Blandamura for the vacant European middleweight title will now top the bill.

The fight is on BoxNation, Sky Ch.437 (HD490/Sky Ch.546). Join at www.boxnation.com

Regardless of what one might think of Tyson Fury's comments or behavior outside the ring, it's easy to see why he's so...furious. It's yet to be seen whether Fury truly is capable of winning the world title but you can't blame the guy for trying. After repeated attempts at clinching a shot agains...

[QUOTE=Masters01]I agree entirely. I guess I've forgiven Ali because he has completely changed his views and actions on this. The difference is that Fury still behaves the way he does today. He can make amends just like Ali did. And it's no consolation that "at least Fury's not racist". I d...

[QUOTE=denium]Ali conducted himself with respect? Are you crazy? This is the hurt game, parents shouldn't be taking children to a press conference with two boxers like Chisora & Fury, what did people expect? That they'd be sitting down drinking a cup of tea & complimenting each other? If you don...

[QUOTE=kafkod]Ali talked more trash and insulted more people than any other fighter in the history of boxing. He called Joe Frazier an Uncle Tom and treated him with contempt. Plus, he was a member of The Nation of Islam for years. They were and are a racist group who believe that white people ar...

[QUOTE=Masters01]More like you and him are boys amongst men. Grown men dont say things like "i shag, fu*k, blind, sh*t when i want", around children. That's what i expect from 12 year old orphans from the council estates/ projects. (In boxing terms) grown men conduct themselves like Ali, Wlad...
