Tyson Fury is one of the biggest motivational figures in the world of boxing. The heavyweight champion has endured adverse circumstances throughout his life, but still managed to overcome them in his lifetime.
Tyson Fury has always been very vocal about revealing the dark sides of his life to fans. Fury has several motivational stories and one of them revolves around the world and is always trying to put you down. In a social media video, Fury said: “When you’re blessed of God like me, it’s hard to hold a man down like that. People have tried to put me down whole life. When I was a little kid, 10 years old, I weighed 4 stone in weight. I was very light, I was skinny, and then people put me down.”
“People dropped me off at school because I was stupid, didn’t work. Putting myself down my whole life for being tall, lanky, and fat. Then people put me down and said, ‘He’s slow, he has no chin, he’s this, he’s that.’ Then you win world championships and then they still put you down. And then you have a nervous breakdown and they beat you up even worse. You blow 400 pounds and they say ‘He’s done’ And then you come back from it and they drop you off again and again.”
“The moral of the story is that life will always try to bring you down. You should never give in to that. Keep fighting because tomorrow is a new day and you never know what’s coming. For all those who are suffering and feeling down themselves. The word is “Yes. You. May.’ Never in your life let anyone put you down.”
