Tyson Fury took to social media to thank Arnold Schwarzenegger for his words of encouragement about Fury’s career.
Arnold Schwarzenegger has been through a lot and regularly posts motivational messages on Instagram and through his newsletter. He spoke about how Fury battles his demons on his way to becoming great. After vacating his belt in 2016, Fury fell into the depths of alcoholism and substance abuse. Plagued by depression and suicidal thoughts, Fury lost the will to box and to live. His lifestyle deteriorated and he climbed to a whopping 300 pounds.
fury has spoken out about how his life seemed to have diminished in importance after winning the heavyweight title. He lost all motivation which resulted in him losing almost everything. However, Fury was able to take control of his life and turn everything around. After a particularly close encounter with death when he attempted suicide on the Autobahn, Fury found the will to take control of his life. In 2018, he reapplied for his boxing license and began the long process of climbing the ranks and becoming world heavyweight champion again. This culminated in 2 wins over Wilder in their epic trilogy and the heavyweight belt around his waist.
Schwarzenegger encourages his fans to find strength in Fury’s story and take control of their own lives. Tyson shared Schwarzenegger’s message on Instagram and thanked him for his words.
