Tyson Fury Hilariously Made Presenter Down A Beer In Front Of 1,000 People Ahead Of Interview

Tyson Fury continued to show his incredible showmanship when he hilariously encouraged a presenter to down her beer in front of 1,000 people.

The 'Gypsy King,' 30, is currently out on a series of tour dates in the UK and his latest outing had him stop in Glasgow.

But Behind the Gloves presenter Michelle Joy Phelps was in for a right treat before she interviewed Fury on Saturday night.

The heavyweight Brit shouted into his microphone ahead of the Q&A: "You might be an American, but we are in Scotland!"

And the boxing superstar rallied the crowd behind his cause as he had them chant "down it" while Phelps knocked her drink back.

The Behind the Gloves presenter took to Twitter to share the clip and captioned her tweet: "[Tyson Fury] made me down a bottle of beer in front of 1,000 fans in Glasgow before we could begin our interview."

Fury has returned to the UK after his stunning second-round TKO win over German heavyweight Tom Schwarz on 15th June in Las Vegas.

The Brit is preparing to have another bout in 2019 before he eyes up a rematch with Deontay Wilder.

While there have been rumours that a rematch with the 'Bronze Bomber' could take place next, Fury said he was unsure if it would happen before early 2020.

But he did reveal that his next bout will take place in October in the US.

"I don't know, I can't tell you [if Wilder will be next]," he told IFL TV.

"But I am fighting [on] October 5, New York City.

"Think Deontay is fighting at end of September and I'm fighting the week after."

Boxing promoter Frank Warren, 67, has admitted that they are targeting Jarrell Miller for Fury's next fight and the 'Gypsy King' said he would welcome the challenge.

"Jarrell Miller is somebody I would consider. They want an American," he explained.

"I'm open to fighting Jarrell Miller, no problem. I've not got no problems with him.

"If he feels the need to do what he did, that's none of my concern. My concern is boxing and winning.

"Not what another man will do to himself. Jarrell Miller is an option. He's a big man, highly rated.

"Three stone and unbeaten in how many fights? He's the highest rated available opponent. He's No 3 in America, behind [Andy] Ruiz [Jr] and Wilder.

"I think he's rated highly with some of the organisations. He's popular too because of the scandal."

Should Fury fight Miller next?
