TYSON FURY has hit back at an “insulting” question about his physique ahead of his boxing return.
The WBC heavyweight world champion is set to take on UFC legend Francis Ngannou next month.

It will mark the first time Fury has fought in 10 months, having last entered the ring in December 2022.
“Nope, never,” the Gypsy King snapped back. “That’s insulting to say that, ‘Get in shape’.
“All these fighters, they want to be like bodybuilders, ripped and that.
“But I always rocks the dad bod, bald head, fat, white as anything look absolutely disgusting with my top off and then when I knock out a good looking six pack it’s like, ‘What the f***, dude. What the f*** just happened?”
Fury has previously faced claims he looks “out of shape” between fights, including at the start of last year.
The 10th round technical knockout defeat of Chisora last December was Fury’s last fight, but he remains the WBC heavyweight champion.
His belt will not be on the line against Ngannou, though, despite their clash being an official bout.
