Tyson Fury

Chris Bowlby profiles the outspoken world heavyweight boxing champion, Tyson Fury, who has outraged many with his comments on women, homosexuality and abortion.

Tyson Fury should be enjoying his best-ever press. He has, after all, just become the heavyweight boxing champion of the world. But his comments about women, homosexuality and abortion have triggered a backlash this week. Thousands signed a petition calling for the BBC to ban him from its Sports Personality of the Year awards. Chris Bowlby profiles a man who calls himself the 'Gipsy King', because of his Irish traveller heritage, and who - his family say - is widely misunderstood.

Producer: Katie Inman.
