He's no more Irish than I am - and my only claim is that my great grandfather's parents were both Irish. Oh, and I was quite good at Gaelic football as a kid.

No self-respecting Irishman (whether he's a Fra-esque ''execute all Brits immediately'' retard or a more sensible one) would want to be either English or British champion. Makes no sense.

I had this discussion on the Irish boxing page on FB. One Irishman said ''if he wants to be Irish, he can be Irish'', another laughed him off the page and basically said what I've said above.
Yet he's an Irish traveler.

Fury has impressed me in recent fights. I never bought into the hype but he's improved a lot since he started caring in training and got into good shape. He's a much better fighter now and he'd beat the likes of Adamek.

Fury was born in England and his father was also born in England, so whilst there may be Irish roots somewhere back in the generations, Fury is definately British.

Fury is claiming his irish side more because English fans don't appreciate him and abuse him

Well if he becomes world champion and is representing Ireland ill laugh

The English can keep glass chinned price

A respected fighter would be fantastic. Arreola, Chambers, Stiverne, someone like that. Would give him a better CV than most Klitschko challengers.

I do think he maybe needs to start thinking about stylistic matchups to aid him when it comes to facing Price/a Klit. Been a while since he's faced a fellow super heavy, 6'5+ opponent. I guess the upshot of this is other super heavys wont have seen him with anyone their size...
