Boxing fans have heard of John Fury butting in, but this is getting ridiculous.
Fury Sr. stole headlines once again in the build-up to son Tommy's clash against KSI on the Misfits Prime Card this Saturday. And this latest in a long line of limelight-leeching moments might land the former fighter a charge for public indecency if he isn't careful.
Fans turned up in Manchester on Thursday to see KSI and 'TNT' promote their fight as the boxing duo each put their undefeated records on the line. However, spectators got (way) more than they bargained for after the junk in John's trunk made an unannounced appearance on stage.

The father of the Fury clan has cultivated a reputation for his attention-seeking methods around his sons' fights and is often creates far more noise than Tommy or world heavyweight champion Tyson. And when he isn't being heard, the 59-year-old is certainly making sure he's being seen.
As KSI and Tommy went at one another with microphones, Fury Sr. can suddenly be heard giving his two cents from the side of the stage. When KSI tells his opponent's dad to 'shut up', Fury reveals a full moon while shouting: "Get up there!"
Will KSI succeed in ending Tommy Fury's undefeated career? Let us know in the comments section below.
The poor ring girls stood next to Fury appear at odds with themselves as the Irishman proceeds to go on in mini-tirade. Each grasping a bottle of Prime energy drink, the pair look as though they regretted having a first-class seat to the action.
"You're all sat like a bunch of pussies," screamed Fury from the sidelines as numerous onlookers cheered him on. "And I'm still being barred from public places in 2023!"

KSI and Tommy eventually made it through the pre-fight talk before meeting inside a specially built cage to pose for a face-off. Unlike Saturday's other headliners, Logan Paul and Dillon Danis, who unleashed projectiles at one another before they could come face to face.
Paul launched a bottle at Danis before the former Brazilian jiu jitsu champion fired a mic at the former's head, leaving a cut on his cheek. Danis has since suggested the 'fight's off' after Paul allegedly missed weight on Friday, though there's yet to be official confirmation of any cancellation.
