Tyson Fury overcomes drink, drugs and depression to be Champion of the World

Boxing may not be everyone’s cup of tea and Tyson Fury is often in the news and press for things that we wouldn’t count as good or positive news. He has brought his battles to overcome drink, drugs and depression into the public eye and for that he can only be commended. He has battled with his weight and talks publicly about having two personalities. He has also had the pressure of dealing with these things in the public eye.

This past weekend it was the long awaited rematch between Tyson Fury and American Deontay Wilder. Tyson Fury, or The Gypsy King as he likes to be called, settled old scores and took the title of Heavyweight Champion of the world with a knockout in the 7th round.

As much as people have different options about Fury he has proved that you can overcome almost anything and if his story inspired just one person to turn their life around then this is in fact a positive story that we will include in our Good News feature. Congratulations on that.

Sports people spending flash with their wages?!

Sports people regularly get ridiculed for their enormous wages and the amount of flash items they spend their money on…. so why do the good things they do get such limited coverage?

Tyson Fury made over £7 million from his recent fight with Deontay Wilder…. and do you know what he did with it? Donated it all to charity. When Tyson Fury did his tour of America before his fight, he was shocked by the number of people who were living rough on the streets. He vowed then that with his fight purse, he would help people living homeless in the UK.

Tyson Fury was quoted in one of his recent Q & As – “I did give away my last purse but I don’t do charity work for a pat on the back,” and “I do it to help people but I do not want praise for it, I don’t want to be called a do-gooder.”

Well you may not want recognition for the amazing work you do, but hats off to you the Gypsy King.
