This is Tyson Fury’s Guide to Self-Belief


The ‘Gypsy King’ is on top of the world

When Tyson Fury defeated Deontay Wilder by technical knockout during their rematch in Las Vegas on February 22, 2020 – the 31-year-old not only took the WBC world championship from the Bronze Bomber, but also completed a cathartic and scarcely believable turnaround in his professional and personal life.

Just three years ago Fury had been obese and struggling, and looked a world away from ever stepping back into a ring, never mind competing for a world title.

He has spoken about length about his struggles with his mental health, as well as other issues he has experienced, and it was this willingness to speak so openly about his demons that made his victory so satisfying for so many.
