Tyson Fury, dad John and brothers Tommy and Hughie celebrate Easter by taking CROSS out onto Morecambe Bay

TYSON FURY and his family celebrated Easter by carrying a cross down to Morecambe Bay.

On Good Friday, the day Christians believe Jesus Christ died after being crucified by Pontius Pilate, The Gypsy King carried the same cross barefoot along the Morecambe seafront to mark Easter.

And on Easter Sunday, Fury and his family carried the same cross through the bay.

Fury posted a picture of himself, his brothers Tommy and Hughie and dad John – who was carrying the cross – to Twitter.

His accompanying caption read: "Happy easter, blessed by God.!

"He is not here, he has risen, just as he said, come see the place where he lay. #mathew28:6."

Fan favourite Fury has not been shy in professing his faith, thanking God after his victory over Deontay Wilder last February.

During his post-fight interview, he said: "First and foremost I want to say thank you to my Lord and saviour, Jesus Christ.


"Those who bring evil against me will not prosper, those who stand in the dark can never come into the light.

"All praise be to the one and only true God, Jesus Christ."

Fury is currently gearing up for the first of two blockbuster undisputed heavyweight title fights with unified champion Anthony Joshua, which is expected to take place in either June or July.

And Joshua's promoter – Eddie Hearn – recently claimed the biggest fight in the history of British boxing will be announced in a matter of days.

He said: "We always had a time frame in place in the agreement that everybody signed.

"That can be extended but it's not the intention to extend it and we are all working to that time frame.

"Really, I think by end of next week it will be done.

"We can't wait. AJ has started his training camp and Fury has been training very hard.

"They all want the fight.

"They are going to be presented with a few proposals on where to do the fight and everyone has to agree on where to do it.

"There is no other fight out there that comes close for either guy.

"July is the date.

"The world tour is going well but I'm not answering any questions on that and I won't tell you where I've been."
