TYSON FURY’s co-promoter Frank Warren has revealed that he spent the last eight days in hospital while battling Covid-19.
The boxing legend, 68, contracted the virus late last year but has now provided a positive update and appears to be in the clear.
Warren told Seconds Out: “How am I doing? I was in hospital for eight days with Covid, other than that, I’m alright.
“I tested positive just before Christmas, didn’t feel too good.
“My wife wanted to call an ambulance and I didn’t want to go into hospital, so they gave me a bit of oxygen and they went.
“The next day I was really dreadful, she called the ambulance and I went to hospital.
“I was stuck in hospital with a load of other really poor people, much worse than I was with it. That’s where I was.
“I spent a bit of time in there suffering, trying to get my breath and that was it. I come home last week.”

Discussing the treatment he received from NHS staff, Warren added: “They were marvellous, magnificent. They look after you.
“They’re unbelievable selfless people and you can’t underestimate how much they contribute in a dangerous environment.
“They’re in there with people who test positive, who are suffering.
“The wards were all full, there’s no room. It’s just horrible and I was lucky.”
Warren returned to work this week and will now be focussed on putting together his fight schedule for 2021.
Top of the list will be the mega-fight between Fury and Anthony Joshua to unify the heavyweight division.
His first fight of the year has already been announced with Carl Frampton set to challenge Jamel Herring for the WBO super-featherweight title on February 27.
