"Me being a boxer, they get a few beers inside them and they think they're Mike Tyson and Muhammad Ali rolled into one and start brawling. To me it is irrelevant whether I live in a house, a caravan or a tent." He hasn't lived in a caravan for years but he does occasionally sleep in one near his training base in Morecambe, Lancashire, while preparing for fights. His father is serving a lengthy jail term for causing a man, a former friend, to lose his eye after a fight at a car auction.
Not too shabby for a site founded by high schoolers.Yet despite calling off the romance in August last year, Penny claims Craig had stalked her profile for a number of months and was routinely messaging her and deleting her on social media when she didn’t reply, then adding her again.After a number of messages were not answered, Craig then decided to ring Penny at 3.19am, waking her and her three-year-old daughter up. Craig is a bright, young, aspiring individual, with bags of charisma.He speaks fluent English (to some extent), is kind, caring, and is a fountain of knowledge!Craig likes to message, and message, and message, and call you at 3am and wake you and your three-year-old child up, just to show he cares.Fury Jnr acknowledges that the bareknuckle stuff still goes on but insists he has never wanted any part of it. I don't go to travellers' fairs and horse-racing dos.Or anywhere that people get drunk and challenge me to a fight. I've never had a fight outside the ring in me life." While "traveller" might be something of a misnomer as he has lived on permanent sites since childhood – Fury now has his own spacious house in Styal, an upmarket Cheshire village and the manor of many a millionaire footballer – he remains intensely loyal to his Romany roots. "I'll tell you what makes a traveller: you're born one like you're born black. No ifs, buts or whys." I ask if, like other minority groups, he has encountered much prejudice because of his background. "'You gypsy bastard, you fat gypo.' All sorts of stuff. I know I could savage them like a pit bull if I wanted but I don't because I know every time I win it hurts them more inside." So what did he feel about the Dale Farm evictions? "To be honest it was just another drip of water off the duck's back. Travellers will be discriminated against for the next thousand years. It's the world we live in." Fury is a married father of two. He likes to live quietly and, as Clifford says, seems a decent lad, though he probably knows a few who aren't.Here are five questions to ask on a date that can make the difference between a happy future and a wasted date.Why we need date questions Over the years, all of us have had dates and have had to face a barrage of questions ranging from the mundane to the obnoxious!You might argue with the PR guru Max Clifford when he says Tyson Fury is the next big thing in boxing, but there's no way you would fancy disputing it with the young man himself.Standing a tad short of 6ft 9in, weighing in at 18 stone, unbeaten in 16 contests and freshly installed as the British and Commonwealth heavyweight champion, the 23-year-old Mancunian not only looks the part but is beginning to live up to his highly marketable moniker. He knows how to sell tickets, how to play the game. There are so many interesting aspects to him, not least the gypsy thing." Ah yes, the gypsy thing.
