Fury apologised

LONDON: World heavyweight champion Tyson Fury has been reminded of his responsibilities by the British Boxing Board of Control (BBBC) following offensive comments he made last year, the ruling body said on Wednesday.

The 27-year-old Briton apologised after making derogatory remarks about women and being critical of homosexuality and abortion.

“Tyson Fury has made comments in the media that have caused offence to members of our society,” the BBBC said.

Fury, who won the world heavyweight title by outpointing Ukrainian Wladimir Klitschko in November, told the Board that he never intended to cause offence and regretted doing so.

“He has assured the Stewards that he understands the responsibilities upon him,” the BBBC said.
