Tyson Fury the new Heavyweight world boxing champion accused of aggressive homophobia…

A Labour Shadow Cabinet Minister has accused new heavyweight boxing champion Tyson Fury of “aggressive” homophobia that encourages young gay people to take their own lives.

Boxing fans were jubilant after Fury, 27, from Manchester, defeated Wladimir Klitschko on Saturday night in a shock victory over a boxer who had not lost for 11 years.

However Chris Bryant MP, Shadow Leader of the Commons, wrote on Twitter that he was “not celebrating Tyson Fury’s win”.

“His aggressive style of foul homophobia is precisely the kind that leads to young gay suicides,” he added.
