BOXER Tyson Fury was left terrified after being seized by armed police who mistook him and his team for killer ­robbers.

The 6ft 9in fighter was ­driving to his training camp in the Netherlands when police cars surrounded his motor.

Eight officers ordered Tyson and his crew to get out of their vehicle and kneel at gunpoint. They were forced to remain there handcuffed for 30 minutes while officers searched their car and a force ­helicopter circled overhead.

The group were then taken to a police station where they were strip-searched and questioned on suspicion of robbery and murder.

Detectives said they matched the description of a gang of raiders who had shot dead a victim. ­Tyson, 24, and his team were held for 11 hours before ­police accepted that they were innocent.

The Manchester-born Irish heavyweight champ said last night: “It was the scariest moment of my life. They were pointing guns at us and shouting: ‘Get down, get down.’

“There had been a robbery in which someone was murdered and some guys in a bar had given the police a description of the ­robbers and it was similar to us.”

Tyson has gone to Rotterdam to train for his clash with American Vinny Maddalone, 38, in Clevedon, Somerset, next month.

He added: “The ironical thing is I came here to get away from distractions at home. What a choice!”

The Fury-Maddalone fight is live on Channel 5 on Saturday July 7 from 10pm at the Hand Arena in Clevedon. Tickets from hennessysports.com

At least Fury has enough common sense to respect authority. If this happened to Chisora, he would've gone ape**** and bullrushed the nearest officer.

[QUOTE=Russ James]How is a Gypsy -- born and raised in England -- the Irish champ? What is wrong with boxing?[/QUOTE] He chose to fight for the title and vacated the British. Good move, they support their boxers.

Surely living in a caravan during a thunder storm is just a scary!
