Tyson Fury is the man of the moment when it comes to the boxing ring after defeating Deontay Wilder in a heavyweight bout on Saturday, 22nd, in February in Las Vegas. It’s no news that the Irish boxer pummeled his opponent and claimed his belt in the seventh round with a knockout, but it is never known that the 6ft. 9in Fury is a Marlian.
Tyson Fury’s opponent, Wilder had his unbeaten streak come to an end stunningly. The American was knocked down twice and got his ear in lousy condition with punches from Tyson Fury. The nature of Wilder’s defeat to Fury was no surprise when an element of Marlian movement was seen after the bout.
The word ‘Marlian’ is probably one of the common words in the Nigerian entertainment industry and the Nigerian street in recent time. The followers of controversial Nigerian musician, Afeez Fashola, aka Naira Marley, are referred to as ‘Marlians‘, and a member is called a ‘Marlian.’
The Marlian King himself has trended since rising to prominence after his case with the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC). He has used the spotlight he had then as a platform to become more popular. He has since been one of the top acts in the country with his controversial music and posts on his social media networks.
One thing about Marlians, as stated by Naira Marley, is that they have no manners. It is quick to spot that the way at which Tyson Fury defeated his opponent shows he has no modes too and a Marlian in the embryo
Tyson Fury, who at the end of his crunching victory over Wilder, took the microphone in the ring and tried to show his funny side by getting the crowd to sing along with him to American Pie is a buddy of Nigeria’s sensational entertainer, Naira Marley.
Naira Marley Shared a vidoe of himself and Tyson Fury
Naira Marley shared a video of himself and Tyson Fury hanging out after his victorious win over the former heavyweight champion, Deontay Wilder, on his Instagram page. In the video, the new world heavyweight champion was heard hailing and having fun with the ‘soapy’ crooner.
Naira Marley, in his usual self, was seen smiling as he had a happy moment with a member of his movement, Marlians. Who knows the number of soapy actions Fury had on that boxing ring to defeat Wilder finally? Well, as Fury has shown he is a Marlian, let’s wait and see his bad manners in his upcoming bouts.
