In the final part of WBN’s Tyson Fury Rolling Stone magazine interview review, the heavyweight champion ultimately says he just needs some time to work through his problems.
Fury, 28, has many hurdles to overcome after being so public with his current plight, having been abusing his body rather than training in the gym to keep his title status.
Run-ins with authorities, media and drug-taking have all taken their toll on Fury over recent months and the 28 year-old is hoping to turn his life around with the help of his family and support system.
“I’ve been fighting them for a lot of years. Now, I just don’t know. I just can’t see a light at the end of the tunnel if I’m honest. It was driving my family apart. My wife says she can’t live with me because I’m a lunatic. I just … I don’t know. I don’t know what’s goin’ on,” Fury told Rolling Stone.
“It looks like everything is gonna go. I’ll lose my family, my wife, my kids. Everything. All due to boxing. I wish to God on everything, that I never got into boxing as a child. I wish this never happened and I had just done a routine job and a routine life. This is how it’s got me all of it. It’s shoved wedges between my team, my uncles, cousins, relatives, everybody who was involved in boxing. Everyone was unhappy with all of this and it’s all because of me. I feel like I’m the one who’s brought all the pressure on everybody. I’m the one who’s done all

I feel like I’m the one who’s brought all the pressure on everybody. I’m the one who’s done all this, if you know what I mean. It’s my burden to carry. Why should everybody else have to carry it around with them, just because they trained me?
“I just want time alone with my family, I’m going through a lot of personal demons, I’ve got demons on me, I’m trying to shake them all off. I want a normal life. The only thing I’ve got left now is me family and me health and that can all change any given moment. So we’ve just got to be thankful for what we do got, and just be happy in our lives.”
Taking to social media following his interview with Stayton Bonner, Fury made it clear that he would return to the boxing ring given time as reports continue to circulate that he will eventually lose his belts.
Hopefully, any action by the boxing organisations won’t upset Fury’s recovery and we will see him back in action soon having turned all his negatives into positives.
