Tyson Fury will have lost a few fans with his pretty inflammatory comments on homosexuality


Darragh Murphy

“We live in an evil world.”

That’s how Tyson Fury’s latest bizarre tirade began as he continued to hype up his upcoming heavyweight title decider with Wladimir Klitschko.

But boxing took a back seat in his conversation with The Daily Mail as he revealed his controversial stance on homosexuality, claiming that the legalisation of same-sex marriage was one of the signs that the devil was returning.

The divisive heavyweight also lumped the legalisation of abortion in with homosexuality and, incredibly, paedophilia in one of his most inconceivably ill-advised rants to date.

“The devil is very strong at the minute, very strong, and I believe the end is near. The bible tells me the end is near. The world tells me the end is near. Just a short few years, I reckon, away from being finished.

“Abusing the planet, the wars in the Middle East, the famines, the earthquakes, the natural disasters, all these things are talked about 2000 years ago before they even happened. Prophesised. So now it’s all coming true…

“There are only three things that need to be accomplished before the devil comes home: one of them is homosexuality being legal in countries, one of them is abortion and the other one’s paedophilia. Who would have thought in the 50s and 60s that those first two would be legalised?

“When I say paedophiles can be made legal, that sounds like crazy talk doesn’t it? But back in the 50s and early 60s, for them first two to be made legal would have been looked on as a crazy man again. If I would have told you 120 years ago, that a 1000-tonne aeroplane is going to float through the sky, a piece of steel — ludicrous.”
