Just because he was the world heavyweight boxing champion totally devoted his sport, didn’t make Tyson Fury exempt from mental health issues. He had money, fame, glory, world titles, a lovely wife and family, everything that was desirable seemed within his grasp.

It was on that race to his death that he heard a voice…and his life was spared.
