Tyson Fury Looks Almost Unrecognisable After Losing Even More Weight
Tyson Fury's recovery from banned boxer battling mental health problems to again reaching the top-level of the sport is astonishing.
The self-proclaimed Gypsy King's return to the ring last year was hailed by many as one of the greatest comebacks in sporting history.
Fury fought undefeated WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder in Los Angeles last month. Judges controversially scored it a draw.
But the result wasn't the be-all-and-all. The towering British boxer won the biggest fight in his career; the battle for mental health.
And now Fury is continuing that work and acting as a figurehead in sport for anyone facing the challenges he did.
"If I can do it, anybody can."

The undefeated lineal heavyweight champion will be back in the ring this year. He's set to face Wilder again in what will be a highly anticipated rematch.
It's unlikely fight fans will be able to enjoy this bout in the U.K. The Barclays Center is New York has been touted as the venue.
But If Fury beats Wilder, an all-British unification super-fight between current IBF, WBA and WBO heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua will be in the minds of all boxing fans.
Who is Britain's best heavyweight boxer? Let us know in the comments.
