Must read

Tyson Fury may have been enjoying his downtime a little too much as footage has emerged of the boxing star being helped out of a Morecambe pub.

The former heavyweight world champion is back home after losing his titles to Oleksandr Usyk last month with their rematch expected to happen in December.

In a video widely shared on social media, the 35-year-old can be seen being helped out by two security staff on Friday evening at Nowhere Bar in Morecambe, Lancashire.

Footage obtained by The Sun later showed Fury on his knees outside the establishment and appearing to hit a post outside.

A source close to Fury said the fighter had not had a drink for more than a year, adding: “He had a couple too many and wasn’t feeling too well either.”

Fury was out on the town in Morecambe and said to be in good spirits after his defeat to Usyk.

He was defended by DJ Scott Shearing, who revealed Fury had been in Strawberry Gardens pub and was in fine form.

The DJ wrote on Facebook: “I’m sure you’ve all seen the video of Tyson Fury being escorted out of Nowhere on FB. Lots of people with plenty to say.

“The man is a bloody legend, multi millionaire and yet he is still just like you or me. He goes out shopping, just like you. Goes to the pub just like you, maybe gets drunk just like you too. I get he is a public figure but he is only human.

“I take my hat off to him as everywhere he goes people ask him for photos when he’s just out like everyone else to relax and unwind he always obliges.

“He was in the Strawbs Fri for a good few hours and they were all singing and keeping to themselves. Lots of people asked to have their picture taken with him.

“He took the time to do this in fact a young girl I know had her picture with him and he gave her £20. The man has a heart and feelings for god sake.”

Fury’s promoter Frank Warren was contacted for comment.
