Tyson Fury’s dad John says he WALKED OUT of Tommy’s fight camp just weeks before Anthony Taylor bout after wedding row

JOHN FURY walked out of son Tommy’s training camp after he defied orders not to attend his girlfriend’s mum’s wedding.

Tommy – the younger brother of Gypsy King Tyson – will make his Stateside bow this weekend against MMA fighter Anthony Taylor on the undcard of Jake Paul’s clash with Tyron Woodley this weekend.

But the Love Islander disrupted his training to celebrate the mother of his other half – Molly-Mae Hague – getting hitched.

Doting dad John was sent up the wall by his son’s decision to attend the wedding, telling BT Sport: “We had a blow-up the other day.

“He went to his girlfriend’s mother’s wedding and I told him not to go, I said, ‘We’re in camp, if you’re going to do that I’m out of here!’

“I left for two days, it takes me two days to calm down because all these people don’t know nothing about the fight game.

“They’re reality TV people, they know nothing about where I’m coming from and it upsets me because you can only do one thing in the boxing world and that’s perfect what you train to do.

“They don’t call it training for nowt, you can’t go for a party and then come back, it ain’t rehearsal.

“And then you’re under the bright lights and everybody there wants to see you get knocked out and everybody’s shouting abuse you need to be on top of your game.

“He is on top of his game, with me he is anyway, because if he didn’t want to train how I want to train I’d say ‘there’s the door, go through it,’ and I’d be out of there.”

Tommy, 22, will look to stake his claim for a big-money showdown against Paul in his clash with Taylor.

John challenged the YouTuber to fight his son in June, saying: “Good on Jake Paul for doing what he’s doing.

“At the end of the day, good luck to the kid.

“He’s game enough to get in the ring. Any man who gets in the ring is a game man.

“But listen, it’s a big difference coming from no crowd to a big crowd.

“It’s a first night out for them, they’re very noisy. It’s brand new for him [Tommy].

“But Jake Paul, we’ll have you next mate.

“If you think he [Tommy] is no good, we’ll take Jake Paul next.

“Tyson’s undercard, July 24, Jake Paul.”
