LONDON---Tyson Fury was
reminded of the responsibilities that
come with being world heavyweight
champion when he met with British
boxing officials this week to discuss
remarks he made about homosexuals
and abortion that caused a backlash
The British Boxing Board of Control
did not punish Fury, saying it had been
advised that it cannot interfere with
his basic human rights because Fury
"didn t break the law by exercising his
right to freedom of expression."
However, Fury was warned by the
BBBC that he has "heavy responsibil-
ities ... to avoid making controversial,
non-boxing comments" now that he
is "holder of the most prestigious title
"He has assured the stewards that
he understands the responsibilities
upon him," the BBBC said in a state-
ment, "and has expressed regret that
he has caused offense to others, which
was never his intention."
In an interview with the Mail on
Sunday newspaper, Fury, who is
Catholic, said: "There are only three
things that need to be accomplished
before the devil comes home: one of
them is homosexuality being legal in
countries, one of them is abortion and
the other one s paedophilia. Who would
have thought in the 50s and 60s that
those first two would be legalised?"
Fury made those comments before
beating Wladimir Klitschko in a heavy-
weight title fight on November 28. He
repeated them on radio after the fight,
and also said a woman s place was in
Fury was interviewed by the BBBC
He will fight Klitschko again this
