Liam O'Prey: Who is the man accused of killing Tyson Fury's cousin? | The Sun

A MAN has been charged with killing Tyson Fury's cousin Rico Burton – but who is he?

The boxing star's relative died over the weekend after he was allegedly stabbed in the neck on a night out in Altrincham, Greater Manchester.

The 31-year-old had been watching the clash between Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk with friends in his final hours.

Emergency services rushed to the scene at around 3am where Rico and a 17-year-old boy were attacked.

But sadly Rico could not be saved. He died later in hospital where the teen remains with "significant life-changing" injuries.

A man has since been charged with Rico's murder.
