I believe in free speech and uphold Fury's right to say what he wants. I am less supportive of a public-funded body who choose to reinforce hate-filled views via an awards nomination but I am glad I have a right to respond.

Tyson Fury's nomination for BBC Sports Personality of The Year has caused a media frenzy over the decision to nominate a man with such outdated views on gays, women and abortion, and rightly so. As much as it should be all about the sporting achievement, it has to be said that whoever wins this accolade will have an enormous influence over any young people who may have chosen to follow in their footsteps, whether they like it or not.

If so, it seems those who criticise Haye's true motivation for stepping back between the ropes in January can only be dead wrong.
