Tyson Fury was spotted partying and singing karaoke with fans at a Tenerife bar over the weekend amid concerns over his upcoming fight with Oleksandr Usyk.
Plans had appeared to be in place for Fury and Usyk to square off as soon as the end of February, but the Brit only returned from holiday this week, and will need at least an eight-to-ten-week camp to prepare for an undisputed world heavyweight title bout. And Mirror Fighting understands the Brit was in fine form during his trip to Tenerife, enjoying karaoke in a local bar.
The world heavyweight champion was spotted by fans as he took to the stage to sing Kings of Leon 's hit song 'Use Somebody', inviting a fan on stage to join him in song. He is known to be a big fan of the band, walking out to their other hit 'Sex on Fire ' for his recent stadium fights with Dillian Whyte and Derek Chisora.
And he entertained the crowd at a bar in Tenerife during one of the last nights of his holiday, where he had been spending his last bit of time off before returning to training camp. He even allowed one big supporter to come and join him as he sang the iconic 2008 song.
Fury returned from his holiday this week, and will now knuckle down as he prepares for what could be the biggest fight of his career against Usyk. The pair were due to meet in the Middle East, but with offers still pending from the big-spenders that put on Usyk's defence against Anthony Joshua they could be forced to return to the UK, meaning a bigger fight but less money for both men.
The Fury family appear to still be living a relatively modest lifestyle, despite Tyson being worth a reported £130million. They flew home on a Ryanair flight, and one onlooker at baggage claim said: "Tyson seemed super-relaxed at the airport. He was chatting with several fans who had gathered to grab their bags at the carousel for the Ryanair flight from Tenerife, which had arrived about 5.20 pm.
“He and Paris also looked extremely loved up. They were piling on the public displays of affection, hugging and kissing together - and they didn’t seem to mind who saw it. Paris and Tyson were together with their whole family, all the children. They waited around ten minutes for their bags to appear, with Tyson grabbing a bright pink one off the carousel."

Fury's promoter Frank Warren has said that the heavyweight duo are expected to field offers towards the end of the week from a number of sites that could host the bout. "We're very far down the road," Warren told TalkSPORT yesterday. "There's just a couple of things we've got to work on.
"I don't really want to go into details at the moment because it's not fair when we're trying to conduct this stuff where we get to a stage where we can announce fairly soon. That's what we're working on but we all think it's going to happen. We're expecting a couple of offers this week.
"And then we, well, Tyson, has got to make his decision. I hope it's going to happen at the end of March, early April that's what we're looking at for this moment. Fingers crossed we get it over the line for that date but it will definitely, definitely happen."
