(Video) Tyson Fury gets smacked to the face by fan during light spar

WBC heavyweight world champion Tyson Fury recently encountered a surprising incident during a light spar session with fans. While entertaining his fans, Fury was caught off guard when a fan punched him in the face.

In the ideal scenario, Tyson Fury would have faced Oleksandr Usyk in April. He would be progressing towards his next matchup by now or even contemplating retirement.

Unfortunately, this doesn’t appear to be how heavyweight boxing works these days. So fans now waiting for the Gypsy King to reveal his next opponent.

Recently, Fury called out Anthony Joshua in order to secure a high-profile matchup. Given the disappointments they have experienced in the past, many fans now struggle to take his callouts seriously.

Taking a break from the ring, Tyson Fury is currently enjoying some leisure time in Thailand. During his vacation, he decided to visit the Bangtao Muay Thai and MMA gym. Fury took part in a meet and greet session where he sparred with some fans.

One of them managed to catch him with a punch, leading to an unexpected moment of surprise.

Fans who witnessed the incident had diverse reactions. While some fans jokingly suggested that Fury was momentarily angry after being hit, others used the incident to make light-hearted predictions about his next opponent.

Additionally, some fans expressed concerns about Fury’s holiday plans potentially affecting his future matches.

One fan jokingly said: “There was a split second there, just a split second, before he started joking that Fury was pissed. He definitely contemplated a solid jab for a moment.”

Another added: “Fury’s next opponent confirmed, here we go.”

“More power in that than anything AJ has thrown for a few years to be fair.”

Recent reports suggested that Tyson Fury was considering a match with relatively unknown Australian boxer Demsey McKean, a decision met with mixed reactions from fans. With the Joshua and Usyk matchups appearing distant on the horizon, speculation continues to mount as to who Fury’s next opponent will be.

In an intriguing turn of events, UFC president Dana White has extended an invitation to Tyson Fury to step into the octagon and make his MMA debut against none other than UFC heavyweight champion Jon Jones.
