Andy Lee offers some sound advice to his cousin Tyson Fury on how to deal with nosey journalists

Andy Lee is trying his best to help out Tyson Fury.

The newly crowned world heavyweight champion has found himself fighting fires all over the place from allegations of sexism, to previous interviews where his negative views on gay people have been expressed.

Earlier this week he was stripped of his IBF title and he may still face an investigation form the Manchester police, but today he's been given some helpful advice from his cousin, and fellow world champion, Limerick's Andy Lee.

Lee is just over a week away from his fight with BJ Saunders, but speaking on Sky Sports this afternoon, he feels that Fury would be best advised staying away for journalists

"He's the heavyweight champion of the world but maybe he needs someone to work in PR for him to create a barrier because he seems to be exposed to these journalists who can take advantage of what he says and paint him how they want."

"I think he should be a bit smarter  and be careful of who he invites into his world and you have to be careful of what you say."
