Tyson Fury Has An Unusual Response To Calls For Him To Be Removed From BBC SPOTY Shortlist

Tyson Fury Has An Unusual Response To Calls For Him To Be Removed From BBC SPOTY Shortlist
By Conor O'Leary

Tyson Fury's comments in the last few months have lead to a growing number of calls to the BBC to remove the new heavyweight champion from the Sports Personality of the Year shortlist. The latest controversy comes after a video appeared where Fury was talking about the favourite for the award, Jessica Ennis-Hill.

So when 40,000 people signed an online petition attempting to remove Fury from the running before these comments - it's fair to say Fury's chances of winning the award hasn't been helped.

For his part, Fury seems to be taking the news well, taking to twitter to agree that he isn't the best role model.

It's an unusual reaction from anyone to hope they don't win a prestigious award, but Fury does have the awareness to realise that a lot of people wouldn't think he's the best role model that the winner of the BBC Sports Personality of the Year would be.
