In a hilarious video recently posted by the WBC, lineal, and The Ring heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, fans see Fury’s father, John, attempting to break a world record while sitting in an airport shopping area. The record was for eating 10 Ferrero Rocher chocolates in under a minute. Although he wasn’t required to perform any major physical feat, the task was still a tough one.
As John Fury started gobbling the chocolates up, ‘The Gypsy King’, his coach SugarHill Steward, and one another member tried their best to contain their laughter while watching the hilarious scene unfold.
“I’ve got faith in you chum,” said Tyson motivating his dad.
“15 secs…20 secs…,” Tyson kept updating John Fury on the clock while the latter sipped down on a bottle of water after a few chocolates.
Meanwhile, the two other people burst out in laughter while watching John Fury trying his best to beat the record. With seven pieces down, Tyson informed his dad, “30 secs up, three away from being a world champion eater.”
In the end, John Fury had broken the world record unofficially as Tyson showed his phone, which said 54.94 secs. John raised his hand in celebration while Tyson stated they had a new Guinness world record holder.
“I said I was good at something,” said John while proceeding to high-five Tyson and coach SugarHill Steward.
This video was a fresh change from Tyson’s recent spate of training videos on social media. In his preparation for the trilogy fight with “The Bronze Bomber” Deontay Wilder, Fury has been working on his speed and power a lot lately on the heavy bag.
The rematch had taken place in February, where Tyson Fury beat Wilder to become the WBC heavyweight champion. The third fight between the two is slated for December this year.
Along with training for the fight, Tyson also flew to Riga, Latvia to support his cousin Hosea Burton for his fight. The bout was against the WBO European light-heavyweight champion Ricards Bolotniks on MTK’s PPV this past weekend.
Tyson is doing his duties as a brother and a son. Now, the only thing that remains for him to do is to emerge victorious yet again in the fight with Wilder in December.
