One of the world's best boxers might get an invite to the White House after his heavyweight championship win over the weekend, but the celebrated fighter has a history of making homophobic, racist, and anti-Semitic comments that date back years. President Donald Trump said on Sunday that he was considering inviting British boxer Tyson Fury to the White House alongside the opponent he beat on Saturday, Deontay Wilder. "It was really very exciting," Trump told reporters. "Maybe we have to bring them both to the White House — I don't know — because that was really a good one. I think we'll do that." Fury, 31, won the World Boxing Council (WBC) Heavyweight title at MGM Grand in Las Vegas on Saturday night in less than 20 minutes in front of a shocked audience. The controversial boxer had been carried into the fight on a throne, licked blood off Wilder's neck mid-fight, and sang "America Pie" to a cheering crowd after his big win. But Fury's championship title also reminded viewers of his history of making sexist, homophobic, racist, and anti-Semitic comments. Tyson Fury is a xenophobic, sexist, anti-Semitic, homophobic religious bigot who compared homosexuality to paedophilia, claimed Jews control the media & said a woman’s place is ‘in the kitchen & on her back’ - if you’re a fan of this vile moron, please get off my timeline👋 — [AJ]🏳️🌈 (@YorkshireLad_87) February 23, 2020 You all know Tyson Fury is a homophobic misogynist, don’t you? — Richard Gallagher (@RichGallagher1) February 22, 2020 In 2013, Fury said he would "hang" his sister if she was promiscuous. In 2015, he compared being gay to pedophilia and said such behavior would "lead to the apocalypse," according to Pink News. "There are only three things that need to be accomplished before the devil comes home. One of them is homosexuality being legal in countries, one of them is abortion, and the other one is pedophilia." In 2016, Fury made comments appearing to support bestiality and made anti-Semitic comments about Jewish influence. "Everyone just do what you can, listen to the government follow everybody like sheep, be brainwashed by all the Zionist, Jewish people who own all the banks, all the papers, all the TV stations," he said. In another remark from the same year, Fury said he believed "a woman's best place is in the kitchen and on her back," according to The Independent. Fury has offered apologies over his remarks in the past, and once told SportsView that he hoped to hold himself "to the highest possible standard," though he has continued making such comments since. "I said some things which may have hurt some people, which as a Christian man is not something I would ever want to do. Though it is not an excuse, sometimes the heightened media scrutiny has caused me to act out in public," he said in the interview, according to The Independent.

Here is what would happen if America's hardest-hitting heavyweight Deontay Wilder punched you in the face

Well, you're not alone. According to his long-time trainer, Jay Deas, many people actually call them up and beg to be hit by Wilder. Deas told Business Insider that if Wilder, who is 6-foot-7 and weighs 220-pounds, punched a regular-sized person in the face, they'd obviously end up on the floor. "It would not be good." Deas even said he was caught flush on his arm by a Wilder punch during a training session and it left a bruise the size of a volleyball. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. LAS VEGAS — If Deontay Wilder punched a regular person in the head, it would not end well. Wilder, 34, is America's hardest-hitting heavyweight and the reigning WBC champion who defends his world title on Saturday, February 22 against Tyson Fury in the MGM Grand Garden Arena, Las Vegas. Unbeaten in 43 fights, Wilder has won 42 times with 41 of those wins coming by knockout. The only blemish on his record is a draw, which was announced the last time he fought Fury at the Staples Center in Los Angeles 14 months ago. Wilder has finished, or knocked down, every opponent he's ever faced in professional boxing. His knockout ratio is 95%, the highest of any heavyweight who ever competed. He's 6-foot-7, weighs approximately 220 pounds, and has an impressive 83-inch punching reach. The average man in the United States, meanwhile, is 5-foot-9 with a weight of approximately 197 pounds. So how would it feel like if the average US male got punched by Wilder? One man who doesn't want to find out is Fury's UK promoter Frank Warren, who recently told Business Insider: "Please, God … let's hope he doesn't do that! I wouldn't want to find out. The way he punches, it's like a mule kickin' ya. He's a huge puncher and a powerful man." The one man who knows exactly how hard Wilder can hit, perhaps more so than any opponent, is the fighter's long-time trainer Jay Deas, who told us: "It would not be good." Deas said you'd end up on the floor, obviously. He even said that he takes phone calls from people who want to find out what a Wilder punch feels like. "We have people who actually call us and write us and say, 'I just wanna get hit.' You know? 'I'll sign whatever release, I just wanna say I got hit.' And I'm like, nope. No, no, no … we can't do that. You think you want that, but you don't want that. "A professional heavyweight rolls with the shots and this takes some of the steam off the shots. So what may look like a great connecting blow, in fact, isn't, because you've turned [your head] a little bit at the last fraction of a second. "And even the guys who get hit clean, generally speaking, would have taken a little bit off the shot. A normal person doesn't have that experience or ability and they'd just take it flush, and that would be a horrible thing." So, the average person would just be knocked to the floor in an instant, concussed? "Oh yeah, it would not be good." Deas said he was once hit flush on the arm by Wilder during a training session. "It left a bruise the size of a volleyball," he said. "So I can attest to that, and that was with an 18 or 20-ounce glove. "You just don't want to get hit. Your life is much better if you do not get hit by him!"
