Tyson Fury, a British boxer who is one of the world’s top athletes in his category, was filmed warning viewers not to be brainwashed by Zionist Jews, who he said own all banks and media.
The Campaign Against Antisemitism, a British watchdog group, said it is submitting a complaint to the British Boxing Board of Control against Fury over the video, which surfaced on YouTube Friday.
“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. Be brainwashed by them all,” said Fury, a practicing Catholic who is scheduled in July to try and win back his International Boxing Federation title of world champion in his category of heavyweight.
He lost the title last year due to a technicality after holding it for only 10 days.
“Tyson Fury’s statements about Jewish people are offensive and racist,” Jonathan Sacerdoti, director of communications at the Campaign Against Antisemitism said in a statement.
“Just as antisemitism is being stamped out from football, the same should apply to boxing.
He should be barred from boxing and referred to the British Boxing Board of Control.”
The Campaign Against Antisemitism (CAA) is calling for the heavyweight champion to be barred from the sport after his latest “offensive and racist” remarks.
Spokesman Jonathan Sacerdoti said: “There should be no place for antisemitism in sport. He should be barred from boxing and referred to the British Boxing Board of Control.
“This is not his first offence, he specialises in outrageous offensive and racist slurs. Behaviour like this should prompt his sponsors to withdraw their backing.
“Britain does not tolerate or support racism. These specific anti-Semitic slurs are centuries old, and his use of them today in 2016 shows ignorance and malice.”
The group has made a complaint to the British Boxing Board of Control. The footage, which was posted on YouTube by SportsViewLondon, has been viewed more than 10,000 times.
