Tyson Fury is a great boxer, you can’t beat Wladimir Klitschko without that level of skill. But he is seemingly just a terrible human being.

The outspoken WBO, WBA, and IBO heavyweight champion is facing massive criticism over comments he made likening abortion and homosexuality to paedophilia.

That ludicrous world view has unsurprisingly left many feeling he is no role model, and certainly should not scoop the Sports Personality of the Year award as a result.

That sentiment was perfectly summed up by one BBC journalist.

Having checked it was post watershed, Clive Myrie explained why a petition has been started to remove Fury from the BBC shortlist.

He said:


You cannot be a dickhead and win the sports personality of the year.”


The BBC has since apologised for any offense caused.


Shots fired.

The truth is it is probably just water off a duck’s back for Fury who had previously stated he may not be the most appropriate candidate.

Has the champ landed a deal to promote Warburton’s we were all unaware of, who knows?

In all seriousness though sportsmen aren’t obliged to be role models, but Myrie has nailed one of the consequences for those who choose not to be.
