TYSON Fury believes that he will never be accepted in Britain because of his Irish Traveller background.
The World Heavyweight Champion said that he would move to the US after his rematch with Wladimir Klitschko on July 9.
“I’m not accepted in Britain because I’m a Gypsy and that will never change,” he said.
The 27-year-old added: “The Klitschko fight will be my last in Britain. Get past him and I’m away.”
In November, Manchester boxer Fury beat the Ukrainian with a unanimous points decision, bringing his nine-year reign as champion to an end.
The self-proclaimed ‘Gypsy King – has previously spoken about the abuse he receives because of his background and has claimed that he has received more racial abuse since becoming world champion.
“This country has been waiting for me for 120 years but when I finally arrived, people called me a bum,” he said. “So I’m moving to America, where champions are appreciated.
“I made the decision last week to move to Los Angeles, where they admire success and big talking. I was made for America.
“I’m going to where millionaires are welcome – and I’m a millionaire now. Every Brit that wants to make it in life has to go to America. If I can make it there, I can make it anywhere.”
His father John Fury – who was born in Tuam, Galway, spoke to The Irish Post earlier this month about the media’s reluctance to acknowledge his son’s achievements from both sides of the water.
He said: “The world doesn’t want Travelling people – outspoken people. They like yes men, liars and cheats, because they can deal with them. They can’t deal with proper people, truthful people, and that’s the bottom line.
“I know there’s a lot of bad people in the Travelling community, but there’s a lot of bad people in other communities too. Don’t tar everyone with the same brush.
“I want people to respect what we do, not outside of boxing, just in boxing. If you love boxing, just respect what we’ve done. My brother Peter (Tyson’s trainer) works endless hours – we all do – I keep his ship steady. It’s been stressful work to get him where he is, and that’s just behind the scenes.
“It’s about Tyson and Team Fury, and the work we’ve put in and the stress we’ve endured to get to the heavyweight championship of the world. We just want our just desserts for it.”
Fury has caused controversy for his comments on a range of subjects including homosexuality and women, later publicly apologising for his comments.
