British heavyweight Tyson Fury faces disciplinary action from the British Boxing Board of Control after he posted a series of expletive-ridden tweets of a violent and homophobic nature aimed at world heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko, the retired Lennox Lewis and future opponent David Haye – some of which were later removed.

The attack on Lewis followed the 48-year-old's assertion that he would "probably knock [Fury] out – inside a round".

Fury was fined £3,000 in March for making homophobic tweets.
