Tyson Fury once paid €200 for two lobsters at restaurant so he could set them free in the sea


Tyson Fury might be one of the most dangerous fighters on the planet but has, on many occasions, shown a softer side.

That side was very evident after he was once videoed purchasing two €200 lobsters and releasing them into the sea.

The Gypsy King picked himself up off the canvas twice in his final bout with Deontay Wilder on Saturday, landing a brutal 11th round knockout punch on his opponent and draw a conclusion to the long-standing feud between the pair.

Despite the trash-talking that took place between the pair, Fury showed his class after the fight, approaching Wilder’s corner to commend the bronze bomber on what was a heroic battle that will go down as one of boxing’s greatest bouts.

But it seems the Withenshawe Warrior has always had a touch of class, remembering the ITV documentary 'Tyson Fury: The Gypsy King' that showed Fury being offered two live lobsters for dinner while eating at a restaurant in Marbella.

Despite the lobster nearly clipping the British boxer, Fury decided not to eat them and purchased the two Lobsters for €200 (£158).

He then proceeded to throw them back into the sea, saying to the restaurant workers: “Take the elastic bands off his flippers, and I’m going to set him free in the sea.”

Reflecting on his lobster saving heroics, WBC heavyweight champion said: “It was alive, and it was going to get burned alive, and I didn't want to burn them.

"I don't like killing animals. It's not often you can do something good in life, and today, that was a good deed, and it only cost me €200."

Sitting back at the restaurant table, Fury then ironically said: “I’m going to have steak.”


Strangely, the lobsters were also named after professional footballers Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, a favourite of Manchester United fan Fury.

The fighter who returned to his home in Morecombe earlier this week also jested with Ronaldo in an interview withThe Sun, saying: “I’m really happy Ronaldo’s back at Old Trafford - but this town ain’t big enough for the both of us.

“If I lived in Manchester, it would be a problem. But I’m an hour up the motorway in Morecambe, so he’s got plenty of distance.”
