John Fury - Jail, Prison Time - Irish Bare Knuckle Fighter & Traveller.
Fury has a very interesting corner, which adds to the spectacle. His father and uncle are lead trainers and there are stories that one or both have spent a fair bit of time in prison. Several newspapers have explained the Fury’s father served time after a massive street fight at a car auction, which led to an eye injury, with accusations made of a potential eye gouging. Obviously we had no one on the scene so we are reporting what other news outlets are reporting but it does lead to some entertaining reading and sounds like team Mike Tyson back in the day. There are some concerns he may not be able to attend Fury’s bouts overseas in the future, however he was allowed to travel to Germany.
Fury’s entourage are fantastic. They are all unique characters and they talk trash. Tyson Fury has that interesting personality also which will lead to huge publicity and financial success in the future. It will be interesting to see how big of a star Fury becomes in America, since he could potentially be a big PPV star. A potential unification bout with Deontay Wilder would be on PPV in the USA and that fight would be a huge money earner for both fighters.
However Fury has to beat Wladimir Klitschko in there upcoming rematch, which is scheduled for mid 2016. Team Klitschko are confident they will win the rematch, with Vitali immediately emphasizing that Wladimir was sub-par in his performance in the bout. However credit must be given to Tyson Fury who had unbelievable head movement.
