Tyson Fury Loses Driver’s License, Jailed for Weekend

by David P. Greisman

Heavyweight contender Tyson Fury not only had his driver’s license revoked for two months, but he also spent this past weekend in jail in Scotland due to a case of speeding dating back to last November, according to BBC News.

Fury had pleaded guilty to the charge through a letter. But the judge wanted him to appear in court due to there being enough points on Fury’s license that it could be suspended. Fury didn’t show, and so the judge issued a bench warrant for his arrest.

Fury’s father said it was his fault.

“There had been a change of address and, as his manager, I am responsible for dealing with matters like that and hadn't picked up his mail,” John Fury was quoted as saying.

The 26-year-old is 24-0 with 18 KOs, is coming off an eighth-round technical knockout of Christian Hammer, and is mandatory challenger to one of the three world titles held by heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko.
