“Not my wife and kids. I didn’t care. Every day I woke up, I just wanted to die. Only people who have been through depression and all that sort of stuff will understand what I’m saying.”

This is what Tyson Fury battled before he became a world champion. He opened it in SKYSPORTS as he remembers his past.

SkySports asked him about his upcoming challenges with Wilder and Aj. Fury is carried away by his emotion as he is in the verge of retirement after two or three fights.

“I didn’t want to continue, plus I was mentally unstable. Going into that fight, I was very depressed and down, and anxious. I always had that goal of beating Klitschko that kept me on the straight and narrow path, but after that goal was taken away from me, I had nothing else that I could focus on to give me that drive.

“When I was only young, Klitschko was a world champion, so I was always looking at him and when I’d completed it, it was game over for me.

“It was like a total downward spiral and I didn’t want to live anymore. I was happy to die at 27. I was happy to finish, that was it. Nothing or nobody could bring me back.

“Not my wife and kids. I didn’t care. Every day I woke up, I just wanted to die. Only people who have been through depression and all that sort of stuff will understand what I’m saying.”

In his bout with Wilder, will he manage his emotion if he lost?
