Tyson Fury: I’m getting the right help, I’ll be back stronger than ever

Tyson Fury says he’s on the road to recovery, and resuming his boxing career.

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

Though we’re far from knowing when or if he’ll fight again, Tyson Fury says that he’s taking steps to get himself back into the ring, first taking care of himself with what he calls “the right help”:

Whatever help he is getting, it’s better than nothing, and the specifics are none of our business, at any rate. Hopefully we’ll see the 28-year-old heavyweight champion back in the ring in 2017, but the key for him will be to put himself in a good place mentally, which he has not been this year by his own admission.

This is a touchy subject, of course, and I have given my own thoughts on it here on the site, but I’m 100% rooting for Tyson Fury to come through this and to get better. It’s a terrible thing for anyone to go through, not only for themselves but for everyone around them, as well. This is a man with a family and loved ones who care about him, not just a pro boxer we hope to see fight again.
