TYSON FURY has reluctantly confirmed he gave a homeless man his shoes after spotting that he was bleeding.
The humble Brit then walked barefoot around LA for over 30 minutes – just days before he takes on Deontay Wilder for the WBC heavyweight title on Saturday.

His trainer Ben Davison revealed the story to iFL TV and the Gypsy King explained why he gave up his Nike trainers.
Fury, 30, said: “No I’m not here to blow my own trumpet. I think Ben [Davison] told you already last night.
“What happened was, we were in Starbucks having a coffee minding our own business just looking out the window and there was this old fella outside no shoes on him – one shoe off, one foot bleeding.
“Everyone was looking at him like ‘get rid of him,’ he walked off and I thought that’s somebody’s child, that’s a human being.
“As he walked off through the crowd I heard somebody say to me, ‘give him your shoes, go and give him them shoes on your feet,’ I was like 'yeah'."

Tyson revealed his cousin and fellow fighter Hughie Fury called him an “idiot” at first after seeing him leave the coffee shop.
He added: “I ran after him, me and Hughie [Fury] and he’s gone, ‘where you going,’ I said 'I’m giving this man me shoes.'
"He [Hughie] said, ‘what you doing, idiot, you’ve got no shoes on down Hollywood Boulevard you’ll get something in your feet.’
"I said 'there’s a fella that needs them more than I do'.
