Tyson Fury has done plenty of things to end up on the naughty list but he guaranteed his place with an insult aimed at Father Christmas in his recently released festive single with Robbie Williams.
The 31-year-old boxer has teamed up with the pop legend to release the song Bad Sharon in a bid to be Christmas number one.
In it, he brands St Nick a ‘big dosser’ – a particular favourite insult of the former heavyweight world champion and labelled WWE star Braun Strowman the same before their clash in Saudi Arabia in October.
The song, part of Williams’ first ever Christmas album, details rowdy office parties.
Fury loves a good sing song and belted out his rendition of American Pie following his draw with Deontay Wilder in 2018.
He has gone a step further this Christmas, though, and teamed up with Robbie Williams – and is the bookies favourite to claim number one.
Fury also revealed on Chris Evans’ Virgin Radio Breakfast Show how he recorded it in his own living room.
He said: “It was all a thing where I was trying to fit it in and I was supposed to come down to a studio in London to record it, but I never got enough time.
“So what happened was they came to my living room, at home, set up a studio and I recorded it at home.
“Robbie was at one of my fights in Las Vegas and he came backstage to see me. And he said to me, ‘you’re a bit of a singer, you sing after your fights, would you like to do a Christmas song with me?’
“I said, ‘for sure, I’m a massive fan’, and we got hooked up and got it done and it’s going to be out in a couple of days.”

Fury is a busy man these days with a recent appearance in the WWE and prospective rematch with Deontay Wilder next year.
He revealed to talkSPORT he has even had an offer from Conor McGregor to train with him ahead of a potential UFC fight.
“I’m doing a bit of training with Darren Till in Liverpool,” Fury told talkSPORT during his exclusive interview on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast. “He’s a great guy and a fantastic mentor.
“I’ve also got an offer from Conor McGregor to go to Ireland and work out.
“He’s one of the world’s biggest entertainers. It goes beyond winning or losing at a certain level and he’s one of the, if not the biggest draw in the world of combat sports now. So he’s done fantastic in his career.”
