''He's A Little W*****” - Tyson Fury Chucks Reporter Out Of Media Session

If there’s one thing you don’t want to do in the sporting sphere, it’s get on the wrong side of a heavyweight boxer.

Especially when you're not a boxer yourself.

Unfortunately for one reporter, that’s exactly what happened on Thursday at a media session, as he felt the full wrath of Tyson Fury.

And that’s before he’d even managed to ask the 30-year-old a question.

In a video uploaded to YouTube by FightHype.com Fury, who will fight Deontay Wilder in December, was shown surrounded by a group of eager reporters.

However, before the session got underway he spotted someone he did not want present at the media scrum, singled him out, then got him chucked out.

“You can’t interview me, see you in a bit. Bye,” said Fury.

“Get him out of here, I don’t want him around, he’s a hater. Bye bye.”

A Showtime press office tried to persuade Fury to let the reporter stay, but the heavyweight champion was in no mood to change his mind.

“He’s a little w*****, get him out of here.”

It turns out the disposed reporter was called Ellie Setback who then took to YouTube to reveal what went down during the media session.

“I was invited to cover the media day. I’ve never met Tyson Fury before, or had an issue with him. But I did choose for Deontay Wilder to win the fight, which I think it’s fair to say that anyone who knows boxing knows that Wilder will win.”

He went on to say that he kept it classy after Fury ordered him to leave, and even thanked the boxer.

“My doing this he’s made me so relevant right now, and so popular, everyone is hitting me up."

Meanwhile, Fury's rival Wilder has been getting soaked by a water gun...
