Anthony Joshua warns Tyson Fury to think before he speaks amid sexism and homophobia stormHeavyweight hopeful Ant

hony Joshua has told world champ Tyson Fury that he needs to think before he speaks. Klitschko conquerer Fury has kicked up a media frenzy with alleged sexist and homophobic comments in recent weeks - but remains a controversial inclusion on the BBCs Sports Personality of the Year shortlist. And since his nomination, the 27-year-old giant has been caught in another storm after a YouTube video has emerged of the 27

-year-old speaking about women and in particular Olympic champion Jessica Ennis-Hill. The video, published on November 25, has Fury saying that Ennis slaps up good, while he adds: A womans bes

t place is in the kitchen and on her back, thats my personal belief. Joshua - who has been tipped to face Fury in 2016 as he continues to make his way through the ranks - does not think Fury should change, but has told him he needs to be careful what he says and when. Criticism: Jessica Ennis-Hill has been at the centre of some of Furys comments (Image: Getty) He said: Youve got kids to grandmas listening to you so I think theres a time and a place to say certain things. I think he has to think before he speaks. He has to be a bit more calculated in what he says. But he shouldnt change who he is. He has always said outrageous things. But I think you should never change who you are - thats important. People are going to like you or hate you. Sports and boxing are won on talent, not on personality. Hes become heavyweight champion of the world on talent so we have to give him credit but becoming heavyweight champion brings mad responsibility.

ncreased scrutiny after Furys comments on Ennis. An online petition, set up by LGBT campaigner Scott Cuthbertson, had already collected more than 40,000 signatures demanding he is removed from the list before the latest YouTube video had been widely seen, but the network does not intend to alter the initial selections. The Sports Personality shortlist is compiled by a panel of industry experts and is based on an individuals sporting achievement - it is not an endorsement of an individuals personal beliefs either by the BBC or members o

f the panel, a BBC Spokesperson told Press Association Sport. Tyson FuryView gallery Cuthbertson believes the panel are wrong to have included Fury in the first instance and feels they would be embarrassed by reneging on their decision. They dont want to go through the humiliation of taking him off the list so the四海图库印刷图库资料 y are coming up with any old excuse to keep him on, he told Press Association Sport. As more things are coming out, accusation after accusation about homophobia and sexism, it is making a mockery of the BBC and their flagship award. Under fire: Fury has been criticised for s

ome of his comments (Image: Action Images via Reuters / Alex Morton) Fury himself tweeted to say he did not want to win the award, writing: Hopefully I dont win BBCSPOTY as Im not the best roll model in the world for the kids, give it to someone who would appreciate it. The footage has a public

ation date of November 25 and, when asked his opinion on women in boxing, Fury focused on the ring girls rather than athletes. I like them actually, they give me inspir

ation, when Im tired and I see them wiggling around with their round two, round eight...I think women in boxing is very good, he said.

The panel who selected the dozen candidates includes the director of BBC Sport Barbara Slater, former England international Jermaine Jenas, presenter Hazel Irvine and journalists from the Times, Guardian and Sun.
