    For a chap who has promoted himself as King of the Gypsies, Batman, Apollo Creed, a Mexican on a float, an Arab wrestler, tv star, writer and singer, he's certainly missed a trick there.

    He has said on many occasions that he does not talk about his charity work for the very reasons you state. He does not want to do it for recognition or publicity but because it is the right thing to do (as a Christian).

    Why this character assassination/witch hunt against Fury anyway? Who cares what he does outside of the ring, it's not going to change the fact he is the best heavyweight of his generation.

    But he does talk about it. The whole point of this is that he came out and very publicly announced his intention to give his purse to charity.

    I'm not saying he didn't, I'm purely saying that I can see why people may think he didn't. he does talk about it too, that's how we know about it in the first place. That is Tyson in a nutshell though, frequent contradictory behavior, I just don't take him too seriously as I kind of want to enjoy him.

    Beating a 40 year old whilst on steroids and getting knocked out by the WBC champion makes a generational great?

    Wow.

    His purse for the fight was $3 million (although he earned more through PPV) and I can very easily believe he has given away $3 million since the Wilder fight. He has just banked $15 million for doing WWE.

    Whilst I see your point, I believed he'd rematch Vlad. I honestly don't know what to believe in this bonkers world that Tyson has created for himself!

    He's outspoken, said about donating the purse once and the media went mad about it. He then decided not to make a big deal of it. What's so hard to believe?

    There's numerous stories about his charity work which haven't come from Fury himself. I find it hard to believe that in his rudest financial health he's stopped doing charity work?

    It's just another stick for haters to beat him with. I feel sorry for you guys, harbouring such hate for the best heavyweight on the planet today.

    Wladimir was a 39 year old ATG, unbeaten in 13 years, unified champion of the world and regarded as the best in the division by a mile when Fury schooled him. Fury was vigorously tested for the fight and came up clean each time.

    When was Fury knocked out?? He suffered a heavy knockdown and recovered fantastically well, beating the ten count to win the rest of the round and indeed the fight on 90% of boxing fans scorecards on this forum.

    You're a very sad little man trying to re-write history to suit your own bitter agenda. Get a bleedin life man!

    He was pushing 40 and his mind was clearly preoccupied with his wife's struggles

    Fury by all means deserves credit for dethroning Wladimir, that is no question.

    But people like you turn into more than what it is. It was hardly a schooling, Wladimir was going through personal problems as his wife was going through post natal depression.

    Which is why he was so gun shy with his mind mentally elsewhere and he was planning on making amends in the rematch until Fury pulled out as he always does

    And yes Fury was knocked out. Fury confirmed this himself and the usual tripe you fury fans come out with in attempt to explain away his comments, is that you can't always believe what he says. But you believe him when he says he gave 7 million to charity and that he won the fight.

    And now because people are exposing the myth that is Fury, which is one good win against an old faded Wladimir and rising back off the canvas against Wilder you want to get personal and begin the insults.

    If you want you to go down that route we sure can make it ugly in here. So its up to you fatty? Do you want to be nice or do you want to play the ugly nasty game?

    "His mind was clearly preoccupied with his wifes struggles" - you clowns will stop at nothing to discredit the gypsy king. It's pathetic. Absolutely pathetic!! He has a better win than anything Wilder/Joshua/Ruiz has or ever will have so deal with that now chump. Wlad couldn't handle Fury's movement, just like your boy Wilder.

    What myth is this? Last time I checked Fury's record read 29-0-1 and he remains the man to beat in the division having dethroned former king Wladimir Klitschko and creating the current scene.

    Do you know what's worse than your bitter hatred for Tyson Fury? Your internet ego!! It's tragic. You actually think you're important on this forum, but you're just a sad man who spends too much on the internet trying to be somebody.

    Take a day off. In fact, take a few months off because God knows you need them. It wasn't enough for you to stink up the general forum, you had to stink up the brit forum as well.

    Fatty? :D Not quite bud. Guess again.

    You're right Wlad couldn't handle Fury's movement since he was pushing 40 years old. However there is no doubt he'd have improved in the rematch which is why Fury soiled himself and turned to class A drugs to escape from it.

    29-0-1 with only two top names on his record, one which he got knocked out in and was saved by a sympathetic biased referee who told him prior to the fight that he wouldn't stop the fight should he get knocked down.

    And we're not even getting started on the losses he should have against Mcdermott and Wallin. Two journeymen who beat your hero to a pulp and should have rightly had their hands raised after the fight.

    Besides Wlad and WIlder he's fought complete nobodies like Pianata, Serfi Joey Abell, Swarchz and european level opponents like Hammer and Chisora.

    That's a resume that is no better than Dillian Whyte's or Chisora's resume.

    Those are the facts.

    You have decided to attack me personally and deflect from the debate because you're so emotionally invested in Fury whilst vicariously living through him

    Anything that conflicts with your deluded beliefs and you turn into a little ***** complaining about me posting in the British forum. You couldn't prove Fury gave to charity and couldn't answer my questions and instead harp on about my ''internet ego'' and being sad little man'

    That's what is truly pathetic and desperate.

    Most fury fans like yourself have ***** tits like Fury, and that would go along way in explaining your hysterics for someone having a different opposed view to your ''Fury is the greatest'' bull**** theory.

    You think Wallin beat Fury :D

    There's no need for anything else to be said after that.

    I did indeed attack you personally because the rubbish being spouted is beyond a joke at this stage. You're the class clown on the general forum and you're now polluting the Brit forum with the same crap.

    Just remember pal, I know what you are. Can see it a mile off. You internet nuts can't disguise yourselves as anything else.
