Paris Fury admits she cannot wait for her Tyson’s boxing match against Oleksandr Usyk to start as she dislikes sitting ringside.

Boxing fans are eagerly anticipating the first undisputed heavyweight bout in nearly 25 years and Tyson Fury’s co-promoter, Bob Arum, claims the WBC heavyweight champion is set to earn over £80 million for his match with Oleksandr Usyk in Saudi Arabia.

But despite the handsome payday, Paris Fury says she “hates” watching her 6ft 7 husband take to the ring. 

“I hate it,” Paris told Sun Sport, “I've got to be truthful, that's the flat out answer.

“I support him but I don't enjoy it,” Paris continued. “I hate being there, but on the other hand, I feel like I have to be there. 

"I feel like, if I'm not there, what happens if something goes wrong and I’m not with him.”

Paris, 34, and Tyson, 35, have been together since their teenage years. The couple met in 2006 and married in 2008, the year Fury launched his professional boxing career. 

She has supported him at every fight and has vowed never to miss one, even attending while heavily pregnant.
