Watch: Tyson Fury sent a motivational message to the Antrim footballers, and it seemed to work

"How much do you really want it, County Antrim?"

Tyson Fury has proved to be a good luck charm for Antrim. The heavyweight boxing champion wished the county's footballers luck in their Division 4 game against Wicklow with a special motivational video.

Brian Magee, the former world middleweight champion, who now works as a strength and conditioning coach for Antrim, arranged for the video, in which Fury cites his shock defeat of Wladimir Klitschko as a source of inspiration for the footballers in their promotion push.

"Nothing's given to you, like I say. You've got to go there and take it. How much do you really want it, County Antrim? Go there, do the business and get home."

It seemed to do the trick, as Antrim won the game 2-13 to 1-12 and promotion to Division 3.
