Tyson Fury accused of breaking Covid-19 rules after car dealership post

Fury has been accused of breaking Covid-19 rules although there is confirmation as to whether the photo was taken on Wednesday or not.

Less than a week since testing positive for Covid-19 and having his trilogy bout with Deontay Wilder postponed, Tyson Fury has apparently been seen at a luxury car rental shop in Las Vegas. 

The "Gypsy King" was preparing to take on Wilder for a third time on July 24 at the T-Mobile Arena before a Covid outbreak cancelled the event.

Since testing positive for the virus, alongside eight other members, discussions have taken place about rescheduling Fury-Wilder with October 9 the date in mind.

Eddie Hearn said he knew Tyson Fury's trilogy fight with Deontay Wilder this month would be postponed and claimed it was due to low ticket sales.

Fury, who should be isolating following the Covid outbreak in his camp, has left social media stunned after an image surfaced on Wednesday evening.

Royalty Exotic Cars in Nevada uploaded the post on Instagram with the Fury in the picture.

There is no evidence to suggest he has broken isolation rules with the date of the picture unknown.

Vaccine reluctance to blame?

Shelly Finkel lashed out at Fury for refusing to have a second vaccine jab but insisted the fight would take place later this year.

Bob Arum added fuel to the fire though when speaking about Fury's stance on getting vaccinated.

"He got vaccinated in Miami. He got the first shot. And then he said he didn't wanna get the second shot because he didn't wanna get sick [from the vaccination] so close to the fight. So, he got Covid instead," said Arum.

Arum added: "I knew he had one shot, and I was hoping it was Johnson & Johnson. But it wasn't. It was Moderna."

The Moderna jab requires two does compared to just one with Johnson & Johnson.

Fury and Wilder have fought since their 2020 rematch which ended in a seventh round victory for the "Gypsy King".

Fury is undefeated from 31 fights and has won every major heavyweight title possible, making him the only fighter after Riddick Bowe to do so in the four-belt era.

He was looking to face Anthony Joshua to determine the division's first undisputed champion since Lennox Lewis in 1999, only for judge Daniel Weinstein to tell Fury he had to face Wilder again.
