With Wladimir Klitschko pulling out of their heavyweight title fight, Tyson Fury currently has a bit of time on his hands.
Apparently not content with sitting on the sidelines waiting to step into the boxing ring again, the undefeated Brit has decided he fancies a different kind of fight in the political arena.
Perhaps inspired by dressing up as Batman for last week’s press conference, Fury now wants to follow the Dark Knight’s lead and clean up the streets of his Lancashire hometown.
The outspoken Fury took to his Twitter account to drum up support for an unlikely bid to become the MP for Morecambe. And, as crazy as the whole thing sounds, you really can’t fault the 27-year-old’s passion.

And it doesn’t look like Fury is all talk here – he’s already been campaigning around Morecambe and doing numerous radio and TV interviews to discuss his plans, which he says include tackling unemployment and homelessness.
