It was widely reported recently that former lineal heavyweight champion Tyson Fury had been struggling for quite some time this year with outside the ring issues.
It was confirmed that since winning his titles last November in Germany against former long reigning division king Wladimir Klitschko, a truly historic win in itself, that Tyson had not felt he had gotten the credit and respect he had deserved for such an accomplishment.

It appears he is now in much better spirits and starting to come into a brighter place following his recent troubles as shown here:

No matter what anyone says about Fury in the media or online, love him or hate him, it can’t be denied that he is not a character (boxing needs characters) and from a pure boxing perspective is one of the most skilled heavyweights on the planet today.
Those skills were proven in his win over Wladimir Klitschko and a heavyweight division with Tyson Fury is both a more interesting one and compelling one from a competitive standpoint.
The heavyweight landscape has been blown wide open since Fury’s heavyweight titles have been vacated with an expected fight between Joseph Parker and Any Ruiz Jr happening before the year end for his previously owned WBO (World Boxing Organization) belt.
The status of his previously owned WBA (World Boxing Association) ‘Super’ title is still unknown at this point.
A ruling from the organization is expected soon pertaining to whether or not it will be on the line for a potential Anthony Joshua and Wladimir Klitschko clash in 2017.
Lets hope Fury is back in this interesting heavyweight mix soon and that his recovery goes well.
