Tyson Fury Was Asked A Question In Spanish And Responded With A Hilarious Answer

Tyson Fury was asked a question in Spanish during his pre-fight press conference and he gave the most hilarious answer.

The self-proclaimed 'Gypsy King' spoke to the media for the final time before facing Otto Wallin on Saturday and he was typically entertaining.

Fury takes on Wallin in Las Vegas on Mexico's Independence weekend, and a Spanish-speaking reporter asked him a question to which he replied in brilliant fashion.

After a long question in Spanish, he said: "Yes, I am the Mexican Gypsy King, El Rey de los Gitanos. It is a privilege to be boxing on Mexican Independence weekend.

"I'm going to put on a fantastic show and yes, I do love big cuddly toys and crayons."

His answer left the panel, which included promoters Bob Arum and Frank Warren, in hysterics.

"I was supposed to box in New York in early October to mid-October. When we heard Canelo Alvarez wasn't going to be fighting on Mexican Independence weekend, I thought damn.

"What a shock, because this has been a special weekend for many years for boxing. The Mexican people aren't going to have a main event for the weekend, so I had to step in. I brought my fight date forward four weeks.

"Just so you could see me, and the Mexicans could have a main event on Independence weekend."
