Big Brother meets Big Boxer

Winner of Celebrity Big Brother and star of My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding, Paddy Doherty flies out to Belfast on Friday morning to attend friend and fellow traveller Tyson Fury’s next big fight.


Tyson, the current British and Commonwealth heavyweight boxing champion, is set to take on the mighty Nicolai Firtha on Saturday 17th September at Belfast’s King’s Hall. One of the celebrity’s favourites, Tyson Fury always draws in a star studded crowd and this time is no different with Paddy Doherty, self-confessed ‘biggest fan’ of Tyson, jetting over to Belfast with his family to support him saying he would ‘watch boxing 365 days a year if he could’.

Paddy will be attending Tyson’s weigh in on Friday lunch time at 12.30pm at:

Kennedy Shopping Centre

He will then be attending the fight on Saturday night at:
