Fury Discusses Health Heading Into Belfast

Tyson Fury’s battles with his physical and mental health have been well documented, and as the fighter prepares for his second return fight on August 18th in Belfast. Fury told reporters during fight week, that those issues weight more on his mind than Francesco Pianeta or a potential showdown with Deontay Wilder.

“What’s concerning me is my legs looking very long and slender,” Fury said this week. “I’ve been working on them for a very long time and they’re still not very big, but they’re quite long, so they’ll be alright on the night. I’m looking forward to a great night.”

“The old Tyson Fury is gone, never to be seen again in history. The new Tyson Fury is here now. All I can promise is to put on a good fight.”

In regards to his goal of fighting Wilder, Fury knows he needed to make some changes to get back to being a title contender.

“I do want to win a world title again so I have to raise my game after three years out of the game nearly and ballooning up to 28 stones,” said the former world champion.

“To lose that weight has been mentally and physically draining and to do it there has to be a want in the brain and I have that. That’s why I’m a sick boxer and I win fights.”
