Mike Tyson Tells Tyson Fury To 'Stay The F**k Away From Normal' In Powerful Interview

Mike Tyson says Tyson Fury needs to "stay the f**k away from normal" because that's what makes him great.

'Iron' Mike, who's eyeing a sensational boxing comeback, spoke about Fury's mental health issues and said that if he didn't go through his ordeal, he wouldn't be the man he's today.

The 53-year-old gave a powerful interview to Ring Magazine where he branded the 'Gypsy King' as the "greatest."

"With Tyson, if he didn't go through everything he's been through, he wouldn't be the person that he is today," he said.

"The mental health issues? That's why he's the greatest, because he's sick, and that's being real.

"People want him to be normal. Yeah, be normal and go on the f**king welfare line.

"Tyson doesn't know what normal is. Tell him to stay the f**k away from normal; he wasn't meant to be normal."

Fury completed his remarkable career turnaround when he dethroned Deontay Wilder of the WBC heavyweight world title in February.

The undefeated Brit stopped the American to become a two-time heavyweight world champion.

A trilogy bout is in the works, but Fury's promoter Bob Arum has said he'd entertain an exhibition bout between his fighter and the returning boxing icon.

"I would entertain the idea of Tyson Fury fighting an exhibition against Tyson if the money was going to a legitimate charity," Arum told Deadspin.

"I wouldn't finance it. I would put sweat equity into it. I think it would be good for Tyson (Fury)."
