Default Re: Tyson Fury - He's done it again.

Fury is great for the sport. I've always watched the big fights Hatton, Calzaghe and other high profile until I caught the ITV4 documentary on him (where he claimed he didn't get selected for the Olympics because he was a traveller, he'd had one pro fight). I was captivated by him due to being a 6'9 traveller and ended up putting a bet on him to win a world title (I got 16-1 by the end of 2013). Since then I've seen every one of his fights and as a result have followed many other fighters, nowadays I'll watch any boxing on TV and even started boxing sparring a little. So for me at least he's massively raised the profile of the sport.
