Boxing Board warns Fury on future comments

British world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury has been told by the sport’s authorities not to make controversial non-boxing comment.

He was warned over his conduct by the British Boxing Board of Control at a meeting.

The 27-year-old Fury apologised after making comments about women and gay people.

Almost 140,000 people signed a petition calling for Fury to be removed from the BBC Sports Personality of the Year shortlist before December’s event.

The Manchester fighter, who outpointed Wladimir Klitschko to become heavyweight champion in November, caused controversy with derogatory remarks about women and for criticising homosexuality and abortion.

A rematch between the 39-year-old Klitschko and Fury will take place this summer.
