John Fury stole the spotlight at another of his son’s events by going on a rampage against some tables.
The father and trainer of Tommy Fury was front and centre on stage to sell their upcoming fight against YouTuber-turner-boxer, KSI.
The elder Fury, 59, apparently bored with the back and forth from the co-main competitors Logan Paul and Dillon Danis, stood up and announced out of the blue that his family were the best fighters in the world.
He challenged anybody in the room to question him on that, before tipping over three tables and squaring up to KSI. Fury ended the exchange by humping air.
The scenes are reminiscent of one of Tommy Fury’s fights last year. His father entered the ring after the dull exhibition and took his top off to trade words with Jake Paul.
Fury, 24, fought and beat the American earlier this year, and has now confirmed that he won’t yet be returning to the traditional boxing route by signing to fight KSI.
Should he win here, many feel he will have single-handedly proven that the crossover side of the sport should not mix with boxers who have been properly training and fighting for some years.
The bout is set for a catchweight of 183lbs over six rounds, and is sanctioned by the Professional Boxing Association rather than the British Boxing Board of Control. It takes place at Manchester’s AO Arena on October 14.
