The BBBofC isn't pleased with Tyson Fury's recent behavior, including his Channel 5 interview from this past Saturday, and are looking into how to deal with the fighter's outbursts.

The British Boxing Board of Control, which has a strong history of not tolerating poor form in the behavior of fighters outside the ring, is upset with Tyson Fury over his recent outbursts on TV and Twitter, including Saturday's Channel 5 interview where he most notably said that David Price and Tony Bellew are "gay lovers."

From Harry Pratt:

"I’m very disappointed by this and have already spoken to the chairman Charles Giles. I’m seeing him again tonight and we will discuss it again," said BBBoC general secretary Robert Smith.

Pratt figures that Fury will likely face a fine for his actions, which would seem consistent for this sort of behavior.

David Price has also weighed in on the matter, and taken a pretty low-key approach:

"Fury is just envious. He sees that I am the one getting a lot of the attention in this country and he doesn’t like it. He is behaving like a child and embarrassing himself. It is not good for the sport of boxing. I haven’t had to deal with someone like this since I was in the school playground."

Price defeated Audley Harrison in just 82 seconds on Saturday, defending his British and Commonwealth titles, which he won after they were vacated by Fury. He is now set to face Matt Skelton on December 8. Fury is set to return on December 1.
