Tyson Fury has revealed plans to move to Los Angeles after his rematch with Wladimir Klitschko as the world heavyweight champion says he is not accepted in Britain.
Fury will return to the ring in his home city of Manchester on July 9 to defend the WBA Super and WBO champion titles he won with a shock defeat of Klitschko in Dusseldorf last November.
The outspoken Brit revealed he will pack his bags and relocate to California after facing the Ukrainian in what he says will be his last fight in his homeland.
He said: “I am not accepted in this country. I am a gypsy and that’s it. I will always be a gypsy, I’ll never change. I will always be fat and white and that’s it.
“I am the champion yet I am thought of as a bum. I am moving out of the country anyway.
“I am going to America where champions are better thought of. I am moving to Los Angeles where people have a better life. I made the decision last week to go where people admire success.
“They enjoy the kind of brash talking I do so what’s the point in staying somewhere where they don’t like what you are doing?
“So why not go to a place where they embrace it and love it? I was made for America.
“They like me out there because I am a big, brash talker. I find a lot more love over there than I do over here.
“The Klitschko fight will be my last in the UK. I will probably be based in California and fight in New York or Las Vegas.”
