    Being a fan of Vlad for so long I don’t think he took that sauna competition seriously, he just did his time and walked out without any damage to his ego. I doubt Tyson got into his head like he thinks he did, sure there might be some of that, but age is what beat Vlad, not some mental warfare Vlad had to deal with all his career

    fucking epitome of brittish, your idea of a prank phone call is calling and telling them that you are fuckin' trynna prank them, what's that shit about? Also, the blonde interviewer dude, wasn't he on 8of10 cats once?

  • Robert Davidson

    Fury is an enigma. He’s turned his life around going from the villain who disrespected others, himself and his sport to being an entertaining boxer and person who people now love and has done a lot for mental illness. That said while he skilfully avoids the difficult questions and no ones quite brave enough to push him on it, I would like to see if he still has the same unacceptable vile views on gay people. I suspect he does and is now more media savvy so is able to deflect those questions. As I say I’m a big fan of the man but it’s a niggle that wont go away and if a politician had said what he had done in the past we wouldn’t forgive him

    Think he speaks very well and is doing good things by talking about mental health, but disappointed that Russell wasn't more direct about his homophobic remarks.

    Moral: Don't listen/watch/read mainstream/social media. Best thing I did was gave that all up years ago. Big up Tyson Fury! 💕

    2 clinically depressed people on a chat show is quite an education. Hope the book sells well and heals the wounds. Grown men who use the F word in front of women and children need some counseling.

  • notorious blanket

    I think Tyson uses the term ‘mental health’ wrong. He’s using the term as though it’s negative, whereas you can have good/bad mental health. It’s like saying I have ‘physical health’, doesn’t mean that it’s bad/good.

  • M Hughes

    Fury is such a fake on this mental health tour. He drank himself into a constant hangover, this is not mental health issues, this is self inflicted hangover. The guy has abused the mental health issue, (mans, 'me too') to squirm himself into the forgiveness of joe public after his controversdial opinions about women and homosexuals.

    A lot people didn’t like Tyson a few years ago when he was world champ and you can understand why. But the fact he went away, went from 28 stone to 19, beat depression and the thought of committing suicide and come back to now get to the stage he’s at basically beating Wilder and being an inspiration to so many people including myself is amazing
