HEAVYWEIGHT boxer Tyson Fury was spotted in Brighton at the weekend.

The 'Gypsy King' dropped in at Brighton & Hove ABC to talk to youngsters before a memorial in the city on Friday.

The event at The Grand was a celebration of the life of Ricky Jordan, a former local boxer.

The Argus:

Fury delighted fans towards the end of the evening as he belted out his raucous rendition of American Pie.

The 30-year-old was then pictured on Saturday morning taking part in the Hove Promenade parkrun.

Councillor Robert Nemeth said: "Tyson was pretty hard to miss due to the immense size of him and his two friends as they jogged alongside the hundreds of participants in this morning’s Parkrun.

"Lots of us smiled and waved as we ran past."

The Argus:

The British boxer made a comeback to the ring after well documented issues with depression.

He became the unified heavyweight champion of the world in 2015 when he dethroned Wladimir Klitschko of his WBA, IBF, WBO, IBO and Ring Magazine crowns with a convincing points decision in Dusseldorf.

However, he was stripped of his belts after drug and mental health issues saw him spend two-and-a-half years out of the ring.

He has since turned his life around, and helps to raise awareness of mental health problems and homelessness.
