Lineal heavyweight champion Tyson Fury appeared on the popular American podcast last week ahead of challenging WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder on December 1st in LA.
Joe Rogan has arguably one of the biggest media platforms in the world at this stage.
Known for his honesty and wide variety of guests, Fury’s podcast with the UFC commentator went down as a huge hit worldwide.
In just a few days the podcast at the time of this article has notched up a staggering 1.4 million views on YouTube alone. Not counting elsewhere on iTunes and so forth.
There has also been over 40,000 ‘Thumbs Up’ as opposed to only ‘750’ Thumbs down at the time of this article, making it one of Rogan’s most popular podcasts yet in that category.
Fury talks about how he overcome his mental health problems and demons as well as a range of other topics in his life:
The feedback thus far to the brutally honest, balls of steel opening up from Fury about his mental health problems and attempt to commit suicide to now losing over 160lbs and transforming himself into a world title challenger once again – has evoked quite the reaction thus far:
It takes leaders to remove the stigma from mental health issues.

Very good listen didn’t want it to end, @Tyson_Fury as someone who has suffered with anxiety this makes me see it in a different light and consider another approach, thank you
