Tyson Fury shows off huge belt collection but HIDES IBF world title after being stripped before Anthony Joshua won strap – The Sun

TYSON FURY likes to show off his bulging belt collection – but admitted he HIDES one of them.

The Gypsy King proudly shared his prized possessions in a social media video.

Each strap has its own box as they are stacked on top of each other.

The Ring Magazine belt he won after beating Deontay Wilder sits proudly at the top.

Then next is the "WBC Mayan Belt" – which he won on Cinco de Mayo when a bloodied Fury beat Otto Wallin.

Unfortunately he still hasn't bought a box to hold the iconic green WBC title he tore away from the Bronze Bomber in devastating style in February.

Right at the bottom of the stack is the "s***" IBF belt, which the Gypsy King admitted to hiding because he "hates it".

That's because it was the one he had stripped off him by the organisation after winning it from Wladimir Klitschko.

Fury refused to fight their mandatory at the time, Vyacheslav Glazkov, and instead opt for the Klitschko rematch.

Of course that never happened as Fury embarked on a very different battle – against mental health issues that kept him out of the ring for almost three years.

Anthony Joshua, who has agreed to a two-fight deal for the undisputed crown against Fury, is the holder of the IBF strap now.

He won that after beating an out-of-depth Charles Martin in 2016 before losing it, then reclaiming it, in back-to-back fights against Andy Ruiz Jr.

Also in Fury's trophy cabinet are the WBO, WBA and IBO belts that he has won during his storied 12-year career as well as another Ring Magazine strap.

Boxing fans were quick to point out Fury's achievements.

Stuart Le Flocq wrote: "People can hate all they want but the bottom line is he’s the best in the business by a country mile."

Another added how they "really really really love this man", while Glen Maney posted that he was "an inspiration".
