Tyson Fury Admits He Was Banned From Wikipedia After Editing Wladimir Klitschko's Page
Tyson Fury has revealed he regularly used to edit the Wikipedia page of Wladimir Klitschko to the point where he got banned from the site.
The former heavyweight world champion upset Klitschko three years ago but Fury told BT Sport that he used to mess around with the career details and biography of his opponent.
"Yes it is true, until I got banned from Wikipedia," confided Fury.
“I did it because I wanted to prove that, because it is a public site, anyone can write whatever they want on there. If you want to go on and edit my profile, you can.
He continued: "I have never edited anything on mine but because I am the lineal champion, someone keeps going on and writing I am retired, I am clearly not retired. So I keep changing it back to active and someone else keeps changing it to retired. Someone obviously wants me retired."
Manchester-based Fury was asked if he thought the person who was changing his page came from Alabama where Fury's next opponent Deontay Wilder comes from. In reply, Fury couldn't resist having a dig at Anthony Joshua. He said: "It might be coming from London somewhere."
Fury is hoping to add the only belt that has eluded him so far in his career - the WBC. In recent weeks, Fury has revealed his personal battles with drink and drugs in a series of revealing interviews. He said that after defeating Klitschko, his life "spiralled out of control." Fury has also admitted that he considered killing himself during his time away from the ring.
