The UK government should take measures to stop knife crimes, according to British boxing champion Tyson Fury, who claimed his cousin was fatally stabbed on Sunday.

social media posts indignant “It’s becoming ridiculous that fools carry blades. Last night, my cousin was killed by a knife to the neck.” “Because it’s a pandemic and you don’t realise how terrible it is until one of your own gets hurt, this needs to stop right soon, and the UK government needs to toughen the consequences for knife crime. Enjoy every moment since life is short and can be taken from you at any time. Rest in peace, Rico Burton. God grant you a great home in heaven. #onlycowardscarryweapons Soon, bye.”
