Tyson Fury turns to politics in latest Twitter episode

Tyson Fury wants to add to his already extensive and impressive resume, and has used Twitter - of all things - to announce how he may do so.

The British boxer has had a turbulent few months with regards to boxing, so it appears that he's turned his attentions and focus to politics.

In the UK, Brexit has been the talk of the town in recent months, whilst over in America, Donald Trump has just been announced as the next president.

The latest news in the political world hasn't gone unnoticed in the sporting world, and Fury is just one that has commented on the recent ongoings.

He posted three tweets talking about Trump's recent victory, and he admitted that if the businessman can become president, he himself could become Prime Minister.

He posted: "The great country of America has had a massive change in Donald Trump. It's time for the UK to do the same #powertothepeople.

"Who knows? #TysonforPrimeMinister coming soon, if Donald Trump can do it, so can I #beliefandfaith #neversaydie.

"If Donald Trump wants a new minder, look no further, as Tyson Fury is your man."

The heavyweight World Champion certainly knows what he’s doing in the ring, but in number 10? We’ll have to see. He certainly wouldn’t be one to quit easily.

Fury is out of practice in the ring after dethroning the Russian powerhouse that is Wladimir Klitschko to become world heavyweight champion last year, so maybe Fury is a little bored, so he’s throwing his punches within politics.

Nevertheless, Trump has evidently inspired Fury.

Maybe Britain will replicate our transatlantic cousin by electing a celebrity with no political experience into the most powerful position in the land.

Fury hasn’t just been dipping into the controversial figures over in the States, however, he’s been busy in good old Blighty, tweeting: "Nice having a coffee with u @JohnReesEvans looking forward to supporting your cause.@UKIP next leader. Blessed be the lord Jesus christ”

It seems that Fury loves the right-wing over the right-swing.

This meeting with the UKIP leadership hopeful - John Rees-Evans - has increased his political activity, which sort of increases the likelihood of the first tweet being reality.

But hey, everyone’s entitled to their opinion.

If Fury supports Trump and UKIP, as millions do, that’s his decision. Everyone else uses Twitter to say things they don’t really mean, so why would this be any different?
