Tyson Fury Posts Rare Picture Of Himself Weighing 400lbs, Before 10st Weight-Loss
| Last updated
Tyson 'The Gypsy King' Fury has given fans an insight into his remarkable weight-loss journey by posting a picture of himself at 400lbs.
Fury's story is well documented. He spiraled into depression with mental health issues and was on the verge of suicide until a voice in his head prevented him from driving off a bridge.
The 31-year-old, who claimed he drank 100 pints a week before his comeback, decided to do something about his lifestyle.
He worked hard on a daily basis to shed the weight and announced a comeback fight against Sefer Seferi in his hometown of Manchester.
Fury won that bout after two years away from the ring and proceeded to lose more than 10 stone (63kg) in 12 months.
He has since faced off against the likes of Deontay Wilder, Tom Schwarz and Otto Wallin, and will soon step into the ring against Wilder in February, a much anticipated rematch.
It would certainly cap off a remarkable journey in boxing, and this never-seen picture on his official Instagram page puts his hard work into perspective.
Fury captioned the post: "When someone says you can't do something, look at this and remember anything is possible. This is me at over 400lb."
An incredible achievement, I'm sure you'll agree.
The beginning of Fury's incredible journey was posted on YouTube channel iFL TV, when they uploaded a clip of him fighting former featherweight champion Kid Galahad in Canada.
Fury, who trained at Ricky Hatton's gym ahead of his comeback, still looked sharp in terms of his reflexes, but the weight loss in clear to see.
Can Fury overcome Wilder in one of the most anticipated rematches in boxing history?
