‘94,000 Ben!’ – Tyson Fury hilariously interrupts GMB host Shephard to correct him on how many fans watched him vs Whyte

TYSON FURY hilariously corrected Good Morning Britain host Ben Sheppard on the amount of fans who attended his last fight.

The heavyweight star sold a UK record 94,000 tickets for his sixth-round knockout against Dillian Whyte in April.

Sheppard told Fury live on air: “So I was at your last fight at Wembley it was an extraordinary experience, I can’t imagine what it would have been like for you, 80,000 people in that stadium…

But the Gypsy King quickly interrupted: “94,000 Ben, 94,000.”

Sheppard apologised: “Sorry, 94,000.

“I think the capacity for football games is 80,000 but of course, obviously everyone was on the pitch, there were seats on the pitch.”

Fury, 34, marks his return on December 3 in what is set to be a similar sell out at Tottenham’s 62,000-seat stadium.

And he does so against Derek Chisora, 38, the man he previously beat in 2011 and 2014.

Fury said: “Very excited to get back in the ring, the last fight was in April so it’s been quite a while and I’m really looking forward to getting in there and getting an early Christmas present.”

The WBC champion’s boxing career was in doubt after he announced his retirement following victory over Whyte, 34.


But after three shorts months, Fury realised the gap the sport left could not be filled.

He said: “I needed a good rest after being in boxing for such a long time and I wanted to spend some time with the family and do the stuff at home.

“And I did that for three or four months and I realised, I miss what I do. I missed fighting, I missed training, I missed gearing up for a big event.”
