On Wednesday, two days before his ESPN+ and Las Vegas debut, Tyson Fury and his suit were ready for the spotlight.
Fury, who will be fighting for the first time since his epic 2018 showdown with Deontay Wilder, was excited and humbled for the opportunity to show off his skills in Vegas against German competitor Tom Schwarz.
“I’m very chilled,” the British heavyweight said. “The crowd has warmed to me, it’s been welcoming, and all different types of people from all over the world are in Vegas. I’ve been surprised really and it’s been humbling.
“The Wilder fight only helped with my profile in the US. Here we are again back on the big stage only a few days away from the biggest fight of my life.”
“I talk about mental health a lot because it’s very important to me,” Fury speaking on his activism to enlighten people on mental health issues. “Only 18 months ago I was in a very dark place. I want to prove that there is a way back and nothing is impossible. I look to inspire people, to change and improve lives, I’m no one special, just a normal human being.
“I was down and out, the Gypsy King was finished, but I dusted myself off and got back on the road. We worked hard to get to this position. To take a big fight with Wilder and be back again in Las Vegas, it’s a dream come true.
