Tyson Fury stunned after dad left bleeding amid ‘Usyk camp headbutt’

Tyson Fury stunned after dad left bleeding amid ‘Usyk camp headbutt’

Tyson Fury was stunned when he saw his dad was bleeding from the head after getting involved in a clash between his and Oleksandr Usyk’s camps.

The Gypsy King, 35, and Ukrainian Usyk, 37, will try to unify the heavyweight division this weekend, and tensions hit boiling point after a bust-up erupted in Saudi on Monday (13.05.24) when WBC champion Tyson’s father was reportedly seen headbutting a member of the rival fight team.

A row broke out at the Hilton Hotel as both fighters and their entourages waited for the media, with former bareknuckle fighter John seemingly happy before he was spotted getting in a heated argument with a large man who was wearing a flat cap and is widely reported to have been one of Usyk’s coaches.

They went head-to-head as chanting started around them – and as John walked away, one of Usyk’s younger team members is alleged to have got in his way and was apparently headbutted by John.

John walked away with blood on his forehead and was caught on camera shouting: “We live for blood and guts.”

During the row, Tyson was in another room but as soon as he walked out there was a huge roar from his team and he asked his dad: “What’s happened to your head you silly c***?”

John replied: “The greatest show on earth has begun. Enjoy. This is what it’s about. Enjoy the entertainment. This is it.”

Tyson’s dad then joined other team members in chanting “Fury” while blood trickled from a painful looking rising bump on his forehead.

After suffering a gash above the right eye in sparring earlier this year, the Tyson v Usyk bout was postponed from February 17 to this Saturday (18.05.24) in Saudi Arabia.

Fury has the WBC title around his waist, while Usyk possesses the WBA, WBO, IBF and Ring Magazine straps, with both fighters are putting their undefeated professional records on the line in the Middle East.
