Sparking Fury: New World Heavyweight champion Tyson Fury says a woman’s best place is in the ‘kitchen or on their backs’

Boxing’s New World heavyweight champion Tyson Fury has come in for more criticism recently after he took to social media and made a string of sexist remarks against women in sport and the workplace.

The new Champion who amazed the world last week by defeating Wladimir Klitschko in his highly anticipated bout, has come in for a barrage of much deserved abuse after he posted an appalling video on YouTube in which degrades women to their physical attributes.

When asked by the reporter what he thought about women in boxing and sports in general, an arrogant Fury replied: “It’s up to everybody what they want to do. I’m all for it; I’m not a sexist. I believe if a man can to go work all his life a woman can. Who am I to say ‘don’t do that ’cause you’re a girl?’ But I believe a woman’s best place is in the kitchen and on her back. That’s my personal belief. Making me a good cup of tea — that’s what I believe.”

The appalling sexist remarks come in the wake of his recent homophobic slurs in which he said: “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 is pedophilia.”

A disgraceful Fury even went a step further by focusing on the women who carry around the round number cards in the ring, saying: “I think they are very nice when they’re walking around that ring holding them cards,” “I like them actually; they give me inspiration when I’m tired and I see them wiggling around with their Round 2, Round 8. I think women in boxing is very good.”

Fury’s recent string of shameful remarks has sparked an online petition which has asked the BBC to remove him as a candidate for Sports Personality of the Year. The petition which is on already has 45,000 signatures to date. However the BBC have since responded saying they would not change their shortlist, that his eligibility is based on his sports performance.
