Tyson Fury Must Attend Hearing or License Suspended

Tyson Fury has been charged with misconduct by the British Boxing Board of Control following his behaviour at Monday's press conference with Dereck Chisora.

The two British heavyweights came together in Kensington to promote their upcoming July 26 bout in Manchester but the event turned sour with Fury launching a string of expletives at both his opponent and one of the journalists in attendance.

When the journalist questioned whether Fury had any respect for the sport or the members of the public in attendance, the 25-year-old responded: "If you don't like the station, change the channel b****.

"This is my show, I do what I want. This is boxing, it isn't tap-dancing. If anybody doesn't like that they shouldn't be here.

"I'm in fight mode, kill-mode. I don't apologise, it is what it is."

Fury also used less than civilised language when addressing Chisora and in reference to IBF, WBA and WBO champion Wladimir Klitschko, prompting the BBBofC to take action.

"The British Boxing Board of Control considered the behaviour of boxer Tyson Fury at the press conference for his forthcoming contest against Dereck Chisora," read a statement on www.bbbofc.com.

"The stewards have decided to call Mr. Fury before them under Regulation 25 (misconduct) to their next meeting on Wednesday, 13th August 2014 when this matter will be dealt with.

"Failure to attend this hearing will result in Mr. Fury's boxer's license being suspended."

Funny how people get butthurt when you mention that Fury needs a psychiatrist when Fury already admitted that he needs a psychiatrist and even went on to explain why he thinks he needs one.

You know we're in the end of days when Derek Chisora is the gentleman in the room... Seriously though Fury does act weird sometimes. Comes across like he has Tourett's disease or is bi polar. He sure twists off quickly…

[QUOTE=Ravens Fan;14778510]The only thing creepy is the fact that you are actually trying to compare Fury to Ali. But this is really all a joke and you are not serious, right? You are just trying to push my buttons to…

[QUOTE=kafkod;14776263]Fury hasn't been dropped regularly, he has been down twice in his career. Another parallel - this is getting creepy! - Ali was also dropped twice before he won his first world title. As for Cooper's weight in the first…
