The Ring Magazine heavyweight champion of the world is back in training ahead of his comeback in April but he’s also made time to do something rather special for one child.
Fury comes in for a lot of stick online and in various quarters in the media but behind the scenes those in boxing will tell you he’s a sharp and caring individual.
Often times the following moments don’t make many media outlets but this has to be highlighted as perhaps one of the most heart warming things seen in boxing this year so far:
