An event by boxer Tyson Fury has been cancelled after The Helix in DCU received threats of a ‘repeat Regency’ shooting.
The threats come three years after a shooting at the Regency Hotel during a boxing weigh in, where one person was murdered and two were injured.
Gardai are investigating the threats that were made to the box office of the Glasnevin venue, and are also investigating graffiti that appeared on the walls of The Helix on Tuesday night.
Boxer Fury, who is also known as ‘The Gypsy King’ was expected to appear in the DCU venue on February 13th, but in a statement, The Helix said the event has been pulled due to ‘unforeseen circumstances’. An event in Cork was also cancelled.
The box office say refunds to cards will be made automatically, with refunds given in full, and those who paid for tickets in cash will be contacted by the box office in the coming days.
Further information on the cancellation of the event is available from TheHelix.ie. Investigations are continuing at time of going to press.
