Tyson Fury and Family Reportedly Blocked From US Entry!
The last time that WBC heavyweight champion Tyson “The Gypsy King” Fury (32-0-1, 23 KO’s) tested his might in the ring, he did so versus Dillian Whyte. In that match, Fury prevailed by way of a devastating knockout. The impressive win came on the heels of two destructive stoppage wins over one-time heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder.
Armed with his debilitating new Kronk style of boxing, the demand for The Gypsy King has never been higher. Sadly for him, now that he has his largest fanbase in the States, Fury appears to be banned from America.
CAN’T COME IN HERE!!
While much of the information has come haphazardly and largely unofficially, Tyson Fury has allegedly been banned from boarding a flight in Manchester, England that was headed to the US. It’s believed that the reason for this ban is due to Fury’s connection with Daniel Kinahan. Kinahan is the now the center of an intense international manhunt due to his accused role in an international drug cartel which is connected to a bevy of murders. Currently, the US has a $5 million dollar bounty on his head. Tyson’s half-brother, Tommy Fury, is looking to stage a fight with media sensation Jake Paul.
While speaking in a social media post about a Paul and Tommy fight, Tyson Fury’s father, John Fury, appeared to confirm that The Gypsy King and his whole team really are having issues entering the country.
“Listen mate, we want this fight with you! One problem, we can’t travel; Tommy hasn’t got a team. His team members are not allowed in America at this point in time…You can have the fight on August 6 but it has got to be not in America because all of us at the minute are suspended and banned for life. I can’t get there at all. Tyson can’t get over there because he has a few issues at the moment that he is trying to sort out. So Tommy has got no team!”
THERE’S SMOKE, BUT IS THERE FIRE?!
On the one-hand, this seems to be a bit of overkill given that Kinahan has been considered a dastardly character for quite some time. And his connection to Fury was never a secret. So, why all the fuss now? Or, could this mean that law enforcers now believe the Fury’s were a bigger part of the criminal empire? John Fury did serve time after gouging out the eye of a former friend. Peter Fury, Tyson’s uncle and one-time manager, was once a major underworld figure in the UK and served 10 years for drug possession with intent to sell.
Tyson Fury himself has been accused of glove tampering and PED use. In fact, when his alibi for why he failed the drug test began falling apart, it was stated The Gypsy King sent knee-breakers to solve the problem. After being flagged, Fury claimed it was the result of eating tainted boar meat. The man who he said sold him the meat initially co-signed the story only to double-back and say he was paid to lie . As a result of supposedly coming clean, he said some ruffians came to his house and scared him into silence on orders from Tyson Fury.
Given this rather spotty background, perhaps the US is playing it safe. Or maybe there really is more meat on this bone. In either case, 3Kings Boxing will stay on top of the story and provide all the nitty-gritty details!
