Tyson Fury looks like Herpes Simplex 1 has weakened his immune system right before his Deontay Wilder fight

CLEVELAND, OH – Heavyweight boxer Tyson Fury looks as if he’s experiencing an immune weakening fight with the Herpes Simplex 1 virus based on a video released by his camp right days before his third battle with Deontay Wilder.  The video shows Fury with what is assumed to be a busted lip.  On closer examination the blemish on Fury’s bottom lip appears to be a blistered up cold sore.

In a September 9, 2019 interview with former heavyweight legend Mike Tyson, Fury admitted he was afflicted with more than one sexually transmitted virus as he joked about a trip to Spain.

“I was over in Spain recently and someone said don’t fuck that girl or you’re gonna have herpes.  I said if she fucks me she’s gonna have chlamydia, gonorrhea and everything else too,” Fury said on Tyson’s Hot Boxin.

Fury’s cousin, boxer Hughie Fury, said he was battling cold sores when he fought Fred Kassi in 2016.  Wilder doesn’t want Fury licking him like he did in their last fight.  The virus is contagious.

Herpes Simplex 1 affects people between the ages of 14 and 49.  The other form of the virus is Herpes Simplex 2 which affects the genitals.  A person licking or sucking an infected vagina or penis can catch it.

A person with an infected lip or with blisters on the soft tissue inside their mouths can transmit it to an uninfected penis or vagina.  A pregnant woman can transmit the virus to her child.

Heavyweight legend Mike Tyson wonders if Deontay Wilder is fighting Tyson Fury for the money or revenge. Wilder calls Fury “a fuckin’ cheater.” The former heavyweight champ thinks his focus is wrong.

Physical exertion like the training Fury is engaged in to fight Wilder can trigger both types of Herpes.  So can not getting enough rest.

Wilder could see the revelation as a signal about Fury’s immune health before the fight, but it may not help him.  Fury’s cousin Hughie defeated Kassi in 2016 even during his own Herpes Siml

Eric Jonathan Brewer

Cleveland's most influential journalist and East Cleveland's most successful mayor is an East Saint Louis, Illinois native whose father led the city's petition drive in 1969 to elect the first black mayor in 1971. Eric is an old-school investigative reporter whose 40-year body of editorial work has been demonstrably effective. No local journalist is feared or respected more.

Trained in newspaper publishing by the legendary Call & Post Publisher William Otis Walker in 1978 when it was the nation's 5th largest Black-owned publication, Eric has published and edited 13 local, regional and statewide publications across Ohio. Adding to his publishing and reporting resume is Eric's career in government. Eric served as the city's highest paid part-time Special Assistant to ex-Cleveland Mayor Michael R. White. He served as Chief of Staff to ex-East Cleveland Mayor Emmanuel Onunwor; and Chief of Communications to the late George James in his capacity as the Cuyahoga Metropolitan Housing Authority's first Black executive director. Eric was appointed to serve as a member of the state's Financial Planning & Supervision Commission to guide the East Cleveland school district out of fiscal emergency and $20 million deficit. Former U.S. HUD Secretary Alphonso Jackson told Eric in his D.C. office he was the only mayor in the nation simultaneously-managing a municipal block grant program. Eric wrote the city's $2.2 million Neighborhood Stabilization Program grant application. A HUD Inspector General audit of his management of the block grant program resulted in "zero" audit findings.

As a newspaper publisher, Eric has used his insider's detailed knowledge of government and his publications to lead the FBI and state prosecutors to investigations that resulted in criminal prosecutions of well-known elected officials in Ohio; and have helped realign Cleveland's political landscape with the defeat of candidates and issues he's exposed. Eric's stories led to the indictments of the late Governor George Voinovich's brother, Paul Voinovich of the V Group, and four associates. He asked the FBI to investigate the mayor he'd served as chief of staff for public corruption; and testified in three federal trials for the prosecution. He forced former Cuyahoga County Coroner Dr. Elizabeth Balraj to admit her investigations of police killings were fraudulent; and to issue notices to local police that her investigators would control police killing investigations. Eric's current work has resulted in Cuyahoga County Judge John Russo accepting the criminal complaint he guided an activist to file against 24 civil rights-violating police officers in the city he once led for operating without valid peace officer credentials. USA Today reporters picked up on Eric's police credentials reporting from his social media page and made it national.

Eric is the author of of his first book, "Fight Police License Plate Spying," which examines the FBI and local police misuse of the National Crime Information Center criminal records history database. An accomplished trumpet player and singer whose friendship with Duke Fakir of the Four Tops resulted in his singing the show's closing song, "Can't Help Myself": Curtis Sliwa of New York's Guardian Angels counts Eric among his founding chapter leaders from the early 1980's role as an Ohio organizer of over 300 volunteer crime fighters in Cleveland, Columbus and Youngstown, Ohio. For his work as a young man Eric was recognized by Cleveland's Urban League as it's 1983 Young Man of the Year.

Known in Cleveland for his encyclopedic knowledge of government and history, and intimately-connected with the region's players, every local major media outlet in Cleveland has picked up on one of Eric's stories since 1979. There is no mainstream newspaper, television or radio outlet in Cleveland that does not include an interview with Eric Jonathan Brewer in its archives over the past 40 years.
