Tyson Fury's incredible journey serves as inspiration to people
Tyson Fury's journey thus far has been incredible and inspirational, to say the least. After reaching the pinnacle of heavyweight boxing by defeating the legendary Vladimir Klitschko in 2015, Fury suffered from mental health issues. This led to him succumbing to vices such as alcohol and drug abuse.
Fury had also gained a lot of weight at the time and it seemed like his career as a world-class boxer was all but finished. However, he remarkably turned things around. After three years away from the sport, he returned in 2018 to face Deontay Wilder, one of the most dangerous knockout artists ever.
Since then, there has been no looking back for Fury. After the first fight with Wilder ended in a draw, 'The Gypsy King' picked up back-to-back stoppage wins against 'The Bronze Bomber' in their second and third fights.
