VIDEO: Tyson Fury helps inspire Antrim GAA to promotion

Tyson Fury provided a stirring message to the Antrim footballers ahead of their victory over Wicklow in the National League Division 4 game this afternoon.

The former Irish champion and current lineal heavyweight World champ is of strong Antrim stock with his mother hailing from the county.

The Gypsy King urged the Ulster side to believe in themselves like he believed in himself when he dethroned long-reigning heavyweight king Wladimir Klitschko in Germany last November.

The message seemed to have an impact on The Saffrons as they prevailed over Wicklow by 4 points [2-13 to 1-12] and guaranteed promotion to Division 3 next year with a game to spare.
