Tyson Fury to quit boxing and join the Village People

author avatar by 8 years ago

World heavyweight champion Tyson Fury is to sensationally quit boxing and join camp seventies music troupe, The Village People.

Fury, 28, which is his age rather than his IQ, says the sudden and unexpected change of direction was taken on advice from his doctors.

And the six foot eight inch heavy-hitter from Bolton says it’s nothing to do with the ‘gay stuff’ and everything do with their beautiful inspirational music.

The Lancashire hard man revealed he likes nothing more than to prepare for a fight by listening to the hard-hitting track “YMCA”.

“When Tyson Fury hears those lyrics, there is something Tyson Fury can relate to,” Tyson Fury told us.

“Young man, there’s no need to feel down. I said, young man, pick yourself up the ground.”

“That song could have been written for me.

“And as you will have heard, I’ve got a pretty good singing voice. “

Fury has been dogged by accusations of homophobia since becoming World Champion, but has since listed Gay Rights campaigner Peter Tatchell and Wayne Sleep among his heroes.

The boxer says he was inspired to take up the sport after watching the televised bout between Tatchell and sixty Neo-Nazi skinheads in Moscow’s Red Square.

Asked who his favourite Village People member is, Fury insisted he was torn between the Red Indian and the Construction Worker.

“When I say torn, I don’t mean literally torn – that would be disgusting.”

Fury added, “You can get yourself clean, you can have a good meal. You can do whatever you feel.

“I mean – who doesn’t feel hungry now and then?”
