British boxer Tyson Fury received a lot of criticism after he wore the Mexican flag on his shorts during a fight on Saturday in Las Vegas, where we defeated Otto Wallin.

The situation was offensive since Mexico bans the use of its national symbols and because the flag was placed on his bottom.

Nevertheless, Tyson not only wore the Mexican flag on his shorts, but he also arrived at the event wearing a poncho and charro hat.

When asked about Fury, Mexican-American boxer Andy Ruíz he should “stay in (his) lane, represent his country. (…) He shouldn't be representing another country that he's not even close to."
