I Was Strip-searched Entering US… Fight Was Almost Off

A piece of wedding cake. Dodging the most concussive right hook in boxing? Easy-peasy. Winning the WBC world heavyweight name? All in a night’s work. Think about engaging in America? That was a problem Now. One which had Tyson Fury seriously worried that he might be barred from being within the town of Angels for next Saturday’s battle of the giants against Deontay Wilder.

The tortuous procedure for acquiring a US visa got two-and-a-half years, starting just 90 days after his seismic surprise of a triumph over the long-reigning world champion Wladimir Klitschko. Even then his right of passing was almost scuppered when he arrived at New York’s John F Kennedy airport eight weeks ago.

We got through it. But then when I found its way to America they (the immigration officers) had taken me away to a back again room. Asked a whole great deal of questions and I used to be strip-searched. I don’t really know. I haven’t any criminal history but I still battled to get the visa. They said they thought I looked a shady personality. There is some chat of what proceeded to go off while I visited to see one of Wilder’s battles in New York and that I might cause a riot. As everybody knows, these sociable people have the to do whatever they want. Tuesday If they state it’s, it’s Tuesday.

Fight might have been off. That could have been nice. There is never any potential for my father arriving here,’ says Fury. Not along with his criminal history. He has a section 18 on his record and he knows that’s too serious for him to be allowed in. So he didn’t even think about attempting for a visa. No point. I don’t know why there was suddenly a tale about me being upset. 10m each for Fury and Wilder – during those extended hours in the interview room.

The deliberations also threatened to lay to waste materials all the hard work Fury has put in to come down to his fighting weight from almost 400 lbs. Even so – in his perfect at 30 – Fury now says he could be considering doing the others of his boxing in America. He says: ‘After I earn the WBC belt will be staying here. You won’t see me fighting in England again.

You noticed it here first. Periodically it is prudent to take with a pinch of sodium some of the Gypsy King’s more extravagant statements. There are seat tickets available in the 20 still, 000 capacity areas, and he is a brilliant salesman here. However there’s a possible scenario that could make sense of such a decision.

There is believed to be a clause in the agreement where Wilder can evoke a rematch in the event of Fury winning. A second combat would almost certainly take place in America, probably Las Vegas. That eventuality would push onto the trunk burner any fight between your winner and WBA, IBF, WBO, and IBO title-holder Anthony Joshua to find the first undisputed world heavyweight champion since Lennox Lewis. Furthermore, with the Wilder-Joshua negotiations still at an AJ and impasse showing little inclination to fight Fury any time soon, there’s a danger of that stadium blockbuster never happening. A different re-match, Joshua against Dillian Whyte at Wembley on April 13, looks increasingly likely.

Nevertheless, in his confidence that he will rebuff the Fury problem, Wilder is disappointed that Joshua has didn’t mix the Atlantic himself to be at ringside. The Bronze Bomber says: ‘I don’t want to look past Fury but I am as serious as always about seeking the next battle.
