Tyson Fury: I'm clean, I'm fit and I'm getting to fight Wilder
By Staff Writer
New York: Tyson Fury says he's in the best shape of his life and is ready to give the greatest boxing star in history a big headache.
Fury returns to the ring for the first time since his unanimous points loss to Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015 to attempt to set up a rematch against unbeaten American Deontay Wilder.
Appearing on 'The Tom Joyner Morning Show' the 30-year-old has revealed how he has overcome an eating disorder and fled a prison cell as he worked hard to get fit and jumpstart his career again.
Calling himself a 'fat camp' Fury said: 'I was very sick for a long time. I was a fat camp, I was very fit and I was getting stronger and stronger and I was almost touching my own death bed. It just kept building up and building up. Then I was sick again when I got into this camp (at the back end of 2018).
The heavyweight star, who is unbeaten in 25 fights, is also hoping he will be given another shot at Klitschko after the defeat that forced him out of the heavyweight division.
