Undefeated heavyweight boxing contender Tyson Fury may be well known to the MMA community with his bold claim against former UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez, and rumblings of signing with Bellator. Fury, who is set to fight Wladimir Klitschko for WBO, IBF, and WBA titles is also known for his controversial character.
Fury spoke with the UK’s Daily Mail newspaper, and surely never let the question of his character down. The contender hit a vast variety of subjects, quite unusual for the typical boxing interview.
‘We live in an evil world,’ he says. ‘The devil is very strong at the minute, very strong, and I believe the end is near. The bible tells me the end is near. The world tells me the end is near. Just a short few years, I reckon, away from being finished.
‘Abusing the planet, the wars in the Middle East, the famines, the earthquakes, the natural disasters, all these things are talked about 2000 years ago before they even happened. Prophesised. So now it’s all coming true…’
Fury goes on to mention that we are just one step away from the devil coming home.
‘There are only three things that need to be accomplished before the devil comes home: one of them is homosexuality being legal in countries, one of them is abortion and the other one’s paedophilia. Who would have thought in the 50s and 60s that those first two would be legalised?
‘When I say paedophiles can be made legal, that sounds like crazy talk doesn’t it? But back in the 50s and early 60s, for them first two to be made legal would have been looked on as a crazy man again. If I would have told you 120 years ago, that a 1000-tonne aeroplane is going to float through the sky, a piece of steel — ludicrous.
Fury adds that his views might sound crazy now, but at one point the world we know now was not what people always believed to be true.
‘When Christopher Columbus said the world was round, he’s an idiot. All these things that happen in the world, wise men already know they’re going to happen and they see what they really are.
‘Foolish people follow the system, get caught up in media news, what the government wants you to believe and all the higher powers want you to believe and go down the same path as all the sheep in the cattle market.’
Fury goes back in reference to the devil, and claims his opponent in Wladimir Klitschko worships the devil.
‘Goliath was a champion, a monster who had never been beaten, and then this young guy, David, came forward, a child who believed in God and did it,’ Fury says. ‘God gave him the power. What was right will always prevail over wrong. Good will always prevail over evil. I see that in me versus Klitschko. To be honest with you, I know Klitschko is a devil-worshipper. They are involved in bigger circles and stuff like that and they do magic tricks and whatever. You can go on YouTube and watch them playing with magic.
‘All these rock stars and singers and these famous people, it is common knowledge that they are all involved in an occult group of Satan-worshippers and all that sort of stuff. A man who does evil things and worships an evil one, how can he win over a man who wants to do good things and preach good stuff?
‘It ain’t going to happen. He can’t beat me now. Now I know what he is — a devil-worshipper — I know he has no chance of beating me. God will not let him defeat me, not at all. I am almost a thousand per cent certain that he cannot beat me.
‘If I want to do good to others and help people and you have got a man who wants to do bad things and is preaching bad stuff and is all about money and gain and holding everything close to him and evil stuff conspiring, who is going to be victorious in the long run?
