    Crumlin is not one of the nicer places in Dublin. It’s working class and tough and has a long criminal history. I’m from Dublin, about 10 minutes from Crumlin so not sure where you’re getting your info from.

    Google “Crumlin Drimnagh fued”. There’s been near 20 murders as a result and has produced some well known high level Irish criminals.

    You’ve obviously not spent much time around travellers/gypsies.
    I’ve met a LOT of them and I’ve yet to come across a poor one.
    Google “Rathkeale Travellers Wealth”. It’s a town in Ireland with insane traveler wealth. They play the poor me, but they’re usually anything but.

    There are plenty of poor travellers, they are called pikey`s and they`re a rouggh crowd, I was attacked by an Irish kid when I was 13 and they used to call him half-pikey because he came from a gypsie background but lived in a council flat and he was an animal, he beat the crap out of me, and as far as going on about Fury`s Irish gypsie background, well he grew up in Manchester, England and there are plenty of travellers thee that live on impoverished cartavan sites like Fury, so it`s not just his Irish traveller background that I`m talking about, the very fact that he is from Manchester and is working class can be enough to tell you he`s a bit street wise, do you know much about Manchester? Are you English? I will google Rathkeale and I`m sorry if I sound too narrow minded, I listen to LBC radio too much.

    Fury had a brand new Mercedes when he was 17 by his own words.

    I don`t what you`re trying to say, but Fury`s dad was a gypsie who was a bareknuckle boxer, that`s a hard upbringing to me.

    Fair enough, but here`s what the New York times said about the area in Manchester where Fury grew up in:
    In 2007,

    described the housing estates in Wythenshawe as representing an "extreme pocket of social deprivation and alienation".

    Most of the farm buildings in the Wythenshawe area were demolished when the estate was built. Some of them, like Hollyhedge Farm and Floats Hall, were left among the houses but suffered from vandalism and had to be demolished later. Some of the present housing estates were named after former farms.

    Peel Hall Farm (which had a

    ] as its occupant lived on the proceeds of selling his land, but soon after he left, the property was vandalised and had to be demolished.

    Newall Green Farm survived on the edge of the Newall Green housing estate area and was still occupied and run as a farm until the early 21st century when its last occupant died, when it was abandoned and fenced off. The buildings are

    Dublin's an open air lunatic asylum, and right now it has as much gun crime smack bang where he's from as anywhere you'll hear. Dublin suburbs can be very very dangerous ! He's been to funerals the last couple of years of friends that have been shot dead, childhood friends. He's right on this one !

    Crumlins a **** hole, drugs and gangsters have ruined it, even though it was always rough.

    I agree, Tyson is for real and genuine, and it shows: what you see is the real him. I like Conor when we get to see and hear the real him (such as after his loss to Diaz when he took the loss like a man, without making excuses); but for the most part he is playing a role, and just seems to be trying too hard most of the time.

    He didn't come across as being very articulate at the 229 presser and the weigh-in.

    I actually view Fury as being the more articulate of the two, and comes across (to me, anyway) as being far more genuine than Conor, and as a result, far more likeable.

    Ali got the idea while watching a pro wrestler from the 1950's and 1960's called Gorgeous George, who was pretty much the first person to bring over-the-top trash talking to professional wrestling (which at that time was nearly all strait-laced and no thrills).
