Calls begin for ban of Tyson Fury after anti-Semitic, homophobic diatribe

The Campaign Against Antisemitism (CAA) is pushing for Tyson Fury to be banned from the sport of boxing.

The Campaign Against Antisemitism (CAA) is pushing for Tyson Fury to be banned from the sport of boxing after video of the heavyweight champion’s racist and homophobic rant surfaced on the internet. The group filed a complaint to the British Boxing Board of Control, according to The Guardian.

“There should be no place for antisemitism in sport,” said CAA spokesperson Jonathan Sacerdoti. “He should be barred from boxing and referred to the British Boxing Board of Control.

“This is not his first offense, he specializes in outrageous offensive and racist slurs. Behavior like this should prompt his sponsors to withdraw their backing.”

During his nearly hour-long tirade, Fury said, "Everyone just do what you can, listen to the government, follow everybody like sheep, be brainwashed by all the Zionist, Jewish people who own all the banks, all the papers all the TV stations. Be brainwashed by them all.”

He also suggested that society’s acceptance of homosexuality and transgenderism would lead to acceptance of bestiality.

"I think it'll be perfectly normal in the next 10 years to have sexual relationships with your animals at home, you know, your pets, your cats and dogs and all that, so that will be legal.”


Fury is set to face Wladimir Klitschko in a championship rematch on July 9 in Manchester.
