Tyson Fury blames younger brother Shane for little-known phobia that Gypsy King 'still has nightmares about' | The Sun
TYSON FURY revealed he has a phobia of worms, which he blames on his younger brother.
Fury is considered the best boxer in the world thanks to his stunning 34-match undefeated streak, which has seen him winning a staggering 33 times along the way.
The Gypsy King poses as a titan of the game with his devastating power, defensive prowess and crafty footwork.
That of course is combined with the Mancunian's brash character and non-stop banter which gets him under the skin of his boxing opponents.
However, even a brave fighter like himself is not without weakness as he confirmed there is one fear he just can't face.
The 35-year-old revealed he can't even stand the sight of worms due to childhood trauma.
