A well-known YouTube reporter who Tyson Fury had ejected from his most recent press conference has responded to the event and his clash with the unpredictable heavyweight.
Fury is just over a month away from his hotly-anticipated showdown with WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder - a man with a 40-0 undefeated record, and a stunning 97% knockout ratio.
In an effort to step up his preparations for what is surely going to be one of the toughest fights of his unique career, Wythenshawe-born Fury has moved his training camp to Big Bear California, home of fellow boxing kingpin Gennady Golovkin.
Fury has also been publicising much of his recent training regime and programme, conducting multiple public workouts and media engagements in the process.
At one such of these recent events, Fury was answering questions from the assembled media, when he noticed well known boxing YouTuber Elie Seckbach amongst the crowd, promptly electing to eject him from the conference, labelling him a 'hater' in the process.
"You can't interview me, see you in a bit, bye!" Fury was caught on film stating.
"Get him out of here. I don't want him around me, he's a hater. Thank you, Elie. See you in a bit".
Now, however, in the aftermath of the incident, Seckbach has responded to Fury's claims and actions, and has been quick to thank the controversial heavyweight despite his actions.
"First of all, I need to thank him for watching EsNews, and for acknowledging me because I'd never met him before," Seckbach stated in a video on his EsNews YouTube channel.
"Maybe he's so smart and smarter than we think, because him just talking to me or doing an interview about training camp won't get so many views.
"Him doing a stunt like that, him pointing me out, because he didn't recognise anybody else in the room. He didn't know who's who, but he knows EsNews."
The upcoming YouTuber also alluded to the fact that his confrontation with Fury may have been pre-planned, as the event has helped generate yet more publicity for his upcoming fight and training camp.
"He knew exactly who I was and it worked. It got him more attention today than anything else."News Now - Sport News
