‘That could have hurt me you f***ing idiot’: Tyson Fury avoids serious head injury by millimetres at his home gym after ceiling COLLAPSES during his ferocious punching bag session
- Tyson Fury narrowly avoided injury when a ceiling at his gym collapsed
- Fury was hitting the punch bag when it caved in and a light swung down at him
- The WBC champion displayed slick head movement to avoid being hit
It’s just as well Tyson Fury has slick upper body movement or he could have been on the end of a serious head injury after the ceiling at his home gym collapsed during a punching bag session.
The self-styled Gypsy King was going through some combinations on the bag when the ceiling suddenly caved in and a light came swinging down towards him.
But Fury showed some of that masterful evasiveness which had bamboozled Deontay Wilder and is one of the reasons he is ranked the best heavyweight on the planet to avoid being hit with any force.

‘That could have come down and hurt me you f***ing idiot. You f***ing failed sugar,’ Fury roared after the narrow escape.
As Sportsmail revealed earlier this week, The WBC champion’s next fight remains up in the air after plans for his UK homecoming on December 5 were abandoned.
Fury’s trilogy clash with Wilder is now back in the reckoning for early spring next year with a judge set to decide if the latter has a contractual right to a third fight.
Wilder is going to legal arbitration in America after Fury and his team walked away from a third fight because a date could not be agreed and they claimed his rematch clause had expired.

The door is now open for their second rematch which will have implications for Anthony Joshua, who has agreed in principle to two world championship unification battles with Fury as the follow up to a December 12 defence of his titles against Kubrat Pulev.
The first of those super-fights has been pencilled in for Wembley in the early part of next year but Joshua may have to turn instead to his Matchroom stablemate Oleksandr Usyk as the opponent.
Eddie Hearn confirmed on Tuesday night that if Fury was to face Wilder again in February or March, then Joshua would not wait around for him and would instead fight his WBO mandatory Usyk.
Speaking to iFL TV, Hearn said: ‘If AJ can beat Puelv we want to make that fight (Fury) immediately for late spring or early summer of 2021.

‘We don’t want to wait around for him to have another interim fight.
‘The path was very clear; he was fighting on December 5th, he told everyone he was fighting no matter what, blah, blah, blah and we’re fighting December 12.
‘Then we’re fighting each other. So it’s not, OK, we’ll fight on December 12 as he planned and promised and then you fight in March and we’ll see what happens.
‘We’ve got the Usyk situation to sort out. As soon as we finish our fight, Usyk will be saying, “I’m mandatory now. Come on WBO let’s go”.’
