Manchester United’s central defender, Harry Maguire, has recently been the talk of the town after being seen in a boxing ring prior to the much-anticipated fight between Tyson Fury and KSI.
Despite a challenging start to the new season with Manchester United, where he has been benched by Erik ten Hag, Maguire seems to be faring well off the pitch. The England international is yet to make a Premier League start this season due to changes in the team’s hierarchy under the Dutch manager.
Maguire’s sole start this season was during United’s Carabao Cup match against Crystal Palace on Tuesday night. Partnered with Raphael Varane in central defence, Maguire played a crucial role in United’s 3-0 victory over Crystal Palace, securing their place in the fourth round of the tournament, as reported by Sky Sports.
In an interesting turn of events, Maguire was spotted in a boxing ring with Tommy Fury, Tyson Fury’s younger brother, ahead of the KSI fight. Both were seen in casual attire, with Maguire sporting a black tracksuit and Tommy Fury wearing his sponsored TNT jumper and shorts.

This unexpected sighting has sparked a flurry of reactions on social media. Twitter user @colingrist humorously suggested that Maguire might be exploring a new career path. Another user, @CLV03, playfully commented that Maguire might be better at boxing than football. Meanwhile, @Luke_ATR expressed a whimsical wish: “Deep down, I hope we find out Harry Maguire is a secret undefeated underground fighter.”
