Fighting Back : The Tyson Fury Story, Hardback Book

Fighting Back : The Tyson Fury Story Hardback

Description

Fighting Back is the story of a different kind of boxing superstar - a hero for winning his battles outside as well as inside the ring.

When he outpointed Wladimir Klitschko, on one of the greatest nights in British boxing history, Tyson Fury sat on top of the world.

But 'The Gypsy King' soon discovered that being heavyweight champion wasn't all he had imagined.

His own demons would prove harder to conquer than Klitschko.

In the following months, Tyson drank and ate to excess, took drugs and contemplated suicide.

He seemed destined for an early grave. But, with the help of his family, Fury dealt with his issues and launched a boxing comeback - after shedding an incredible ten stones in weight!

Fury eased back with a couple of straightforward wins.

Then, in what appeared a foolhardy, if very brave, move, he challenged unbeaten KO specialist Deontay Wilder for the WBC heavyweight championship in Los Angeles.

Having followed Fury's career from his first amateur bout, author Matt Bozeat has spent time with Fury and his family trying to get to know and fathom out this most remarkable of fighters and people.

The result is the humour-laden, heart-wrenching, inspirational story of a boxer who conquered the world, lost everything - and then got it back.
