BECAUSE Tyson Fury seems to get a kick out of stirring the pot, you never quite know when he’s being serious and when he’s, well, stirring the pot.

His apparent desire to fight Jarrell Miller on October 5, for example, could either be genuine, and lead to the fight getting made, or it could simply be a method ‘The Gypsy King’ has decided to employ to cause a little controversy and ruffle a few feathers. Who knows? But, as per an interview with Behind the Gloves, he sounds adamant he will be fighting in October and hopeful Miller, a three-time drug cheat, will be in the opposite corner.

“I’m fighting October 5 and I’m hoping it’s going to be Jarrell Miller,” Fury said. “But October would only be four months (of his six-month drug ban), so maybe they won’t give him his licence.”
