JOHN FURY has helped son Tyson's energy drink soar in sales by 300 per cent after branding Prime "cat's p*** in a bottle".
WBC heavyweight champion Tyson launched his Furocity line in early 2022, striking an exclusive deal with Iceland.

The beverage has sparked a craze in the UK, with fans scrapping to get their hands on a bottle and shops selling them on for up to £100.
But evidently John – the father to Tommy and Tyson – is not a fan and cannot understand the hype as he urged fans to buy Furocity instead.
And it appears to have done the trick, as sales went up by 300 per cent after the scathing video, according to the Daily Star.

John's critical response to trying Prime for the first time went viral online.
Taking a swig, he told Freebets: “Disgusting. I wouldn’t put that in my mouth.
