BOXING champion Tyson Fury does rate Morecambe FC after all...and we have proof!
Morecambe’s towering heavyweight star posed with a Shrimps shirt before his dramatic TV knockout win over Neven Pajkic.
Prior to his victory, the fast-rising fighter was quoted in another newspaper saying the Morecambe football team wasn’t very good.
So The Visitor cornered the 6ft 9in boxer at Friday’s weigh-in at the Trafford Centre to hand him a Morecambe FC shirt, in extra large of course!
Tyson was delighted to accept the gift, and when quizzed about his alleged comments, said: “That was a misquote. I don’t remember saying that at all.
“Are they very good at Champions League level? No. But very good on their own level? Yeah.
“I’ve been to see them play. Good luck to them.”
