Tyson Fury thanks boxing team for loving life after ‘not wanting to be alive’

Tyson Fury sent a heartfelt message to his boxing team for helping him “love life” after being at a point when he thought he “didn’t want to be alive”.

The Gyspy King has enjoyed an incredible two years since coming back to boxing, taking the WBC heavyweight belt from Deontay Wilder in February.

Fury was the undisputed champion in 2015 after beating Wladimir Klitscho but a downward spiral into alcoholism saw him balloon to 27 stone.

But the Mancunian is now considering a unifying heavyweight bout against Anthony Joshua after a rematch with the Bronze Bomber.

And the 31-year-old took to social media to send a message to the people that got him back into the boxing ring and up the rankings.

Writing on his Twitter channel, Fury said: “Massive shoutout to my team every single member you know who you are.

“There was a time not so long ago where I was so unwell the only thing I could think of was death and how I didn’t want to be alive.

“Just over two years later I’m loving life and healthy as a trout, & have reached the pinnacle of sport again.

“This shows you no matter how bad things get you must continue as things will get better I promise you, you can get your life back.

“Seek help immediately #itsokaynottobeokay#mentalhealthawareness#staysafe.

“Have a blessed weekend, much love to everyone.”

Fury actually bumped into potential future opponent AJ while training in Marbella, having a chat with the Brit from his car.
