Fury’s comments have not been received well and Campaign Against Anti-Semitism spokesman Jonathan Sacerdoti has called for the Brit to be banished from sport.
“There should be no place for anti-Semitism in sport,” he said.
“He should be barred from boxing and referred to the British Boxing Board of Control.
“This is not his first offence, he specializes in outrageous offensive and racist slurs. Behavior like this should prompt his sponsors to withdraw their backing.
“Britain does not tolerate or support racism. These specific anti-Semitic slurs are centuries old, and his use of them today in 2016 shows ignorance and malice.”
