Tyson Fury embroiled in COVID controversy, pictured out and about days after positive test news

Posted by

Tyson Fury has been spotted visiting a car dealership in Las Vegas after testing positive for COVID-19, report the Daily Star.

As is mentioned in the report, Fury’s trilogy fight with Deontay Wilder was forced to be postponed after the WBC heavyweight champion returned a positive coronavirus test.

While it was initially due to take place next weekend, the pair will now not be heading into the ring until October – a frustrating delay for fight fans, most of whom want to get this bout out of the way.

Even more annoyingly, the Daily Star report that Fury has been out and about at a car dealership, just a matter of days after his positive COVID-19 result was revealed.

There is, of course, the possibility that Fury has already completed his isolation period and news coming out that he was positive for coronavirus was merely lagging behind the present.

There’s also the possibility that he is flouting the rules and walking around Las Vegas while positive for coronavirus, though that’s a pretty serious allegation to make and he surely wouldn’t be so reckless.

The more cynical among the fight community would suggest that the positive test was merely a ploy to have the fight delayed, for reasons unknown, but that’s purely speculative.

What we know for certain is that we’re not going to see Fury and Wilder fight until October 9th, at the earliest.
