How Tyson Fury Got Banned From Wikipedia For Trolling Wladimir Klitschko
Tyson Fury has revealed how he ended up getting banned from Wikipedia after trolling Wladimir Klitschko.
Yes, if there were one person that would end up doing it, then the 30-year-old Brit would rank up high on that list.
Speaking to BT Sport, the Gypsy King explained how he couldn't help himself and would end up editing the 42-year-old Ukrainian's profile numerous times.
"Yes, it is true, until I got banned from Wikipedia," he said (via the Sun).
"I did it because it I wanted to prove that, because it is a public site, anyone can write whatever they want on there. If you want to go on and edit my profile, you can."
Fury isn't bothered about keeping his own page updated, though he does think that someone "from London" -- potentially hinting at Anthony Joshua -- is trying to force him into an early retirement online.

"Have I edited my own? No, I have never edited anything on mine," he said.
"But because I am the lineal champion, someone keeps going on and writing I am retired, I am clearly not retired.
"So, I keep changing it back to active and someone else keeps changing it to retired. Someone obviously wants me retired.
"It might be coming from London somewhere."
Fury is preparing for his upcoming fight with Deontay Wilder for the WBC Heavyweight Championship on 1st December.
He made an appearance on the Joe Rogan Experience last month, revealing how far his mental health had declined after his stunning win against Klitschko in 2015.
