Fury: Coronavirus Can Take Anyone Out, Regardless of How Invincible We Feel

WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury has issued another urgent plea, asking for his fans to stay home and practice social distancing in order to decrease the spread of coronavirus COVID-19.

In the UK, over 60,000 have been infected and over 7,000 have died.

As previously reported by BoxingScene.com,  Fury is providing free drinks to NHS workers staying at Hotel Football in Manchester. Fury, along with his sponsor Wow Hydrate, are providing thousands of hydration drinks to NHS workers.

Fury was scheduled to return to the ring on July 18th in a trilogy fight with Deontay Wilder. He stopped Wilder in seven rounds back in February to capture the WBC world title at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

After the contest, Wilder exercised his contractual right to an immediate rematch. They fought to a controversial twelve round split draw in December of 2018 at Staples Cener in Los Angeles.

The third bout has since been rescheduled to early October, with Las Vegas still slated as the tentative location to host the event. The event may move to different location - which all depends on the restrictions and available venues in Las Vegas.

"The coronavirus is the biggest threat this country has faced in a long time. Our best defence against it is to get people to stay indoors. It's not just a danger to older and vulnerable people. It can take anyone out, regardless of how invincible we feel," Fury stated.

"So I'm asking you, if you want to help me fight the coronavirus, please stay at home. It's the only way we can stop the virus from spreading. Protect our NHS and save thousands of lives across the country.

"Please listen to this advice and stay home, save lives and protect the NHS. All the best, God bless, see you all soon."
