BETTING odds on Tyson Fury winning this year’s Sports Personality of the Year award have drifted after the Wilmslow giant started out as one of the favourites.

Fury’s inclusion in the shortlist came immediately after his upset win over Wladimir Klitschko and he could have been backed at 4/1 with William Hill to take home the BBC gong, attracting bets of up to £200.

However recent comments from the polarising 27-year-old have sparked outrage and caused over 80,000 people to sign a petition urging the BBC to remove Fury from the list of nominees.
