Tyson Fury Sends Positive Message To Those Struggling With Mental Health
Mental health is something that WBC Heavyweight Champion Tyson Fury takes quite seriously.
Fury hasn’t been shy in admitting that he dealt with a dark time in his life. After becoming the WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, IBO, and The Ring Heavyweight Champion by defeating Wladimir Klitschko, Fury went into a downward spiral. Fury fell into a deep depression and abused drugs and alcohol. “The Gypsy King” even admitted he considered smashing his Ferrari into a wall in hopes of committing suicide.
Fury has improved significantly since that time. He returned to fighting shape and was able to get back on track with his life. It has led to him winning the WBC Heavyweight Title and potentially having an undisputed title showdown with Anthony Joshua.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, some may find themselves in a tough spot mentally or even physically. Fury took to his Twitter account to send a warm message to those who are struggling (h/t BoxingScene.com).

“This is a quick message of positivity. We’ve had the lockdown last night, and I know a lot of people are struggling with their mental health and their physical health. You’re not alone, and we’re all in this together.
“No matter what is going on at this present matter, I’ve been there and I’m proof you can come out the other side. Stay positive and spread positive energy for those around you. Reach out and get help because you’re not alone. It’s ok not to be ok.
“You can go running, eat clean food, and do other things too. We can all get through it together. Have a positive 2021, god bless, stay safe and stay happy.”
