When Tyson Fury Walked Into A Bar And Spent €1,000 On Jägerbombs For Everyone

Three years ago, on a blazing-hot evening in the vibrant old town of Nice, a 6ft 9inch heavyweight champion would become a hero.

Tyson Fury was spotted walking down a narrow cobbled street, with a handful of people either side, to a local bar.

It was the night before England's infamous defeat to Iceland at the European Championship and the 30-year-old decided to lift the mood with a gift.

For punters like Robin Evans, it would be an evening to remember.

"We were sat outside when he walked into the bar," Evans told SPORTbible.

"He then started asking people what they wanted and someone at the back shouted 200 Jägerbombs.

"He duly got them in, to great cheers. Those behind the bar had to go and get more bottles of Jäger out back as they didn't have enough!"

Fury spent a grand total of €1,000 on Jägerbombs for those in attendance, as many posed next to his huge frame for a picture.

After all, it's not everyday you meet the Gypsy King.

He later posted the bar bill on Twitter, saying: "This is how much I love my fans, Euro 2016, 200 jagerbombs, for the fans."

England went on suffer at the hands of Iceland and manager Roy Hodgson would soon get the sack,

But for Robin Evans and hundreds of other punters, the generosity of Tyson Fury on that memorable day in France would compensate.

Never change, Tyson.

Three years on, the still undefeated heavyweight has been voted the best heavyweight in world boxing by a thumping landslide.

BT Sport asked its YouTube subscribers to vote from either Fury, Deontay Wilder, Anthony Joshua or Andy Ruiz Jr.

And with 168,000 fans taking part in the poll, the 'Gypsy King' took home the crown for the king of boxing after amassing 74 per cent of the vote.
