Tyson Fury's incredible physical transformation
Tyson Fury's journey back to the top of heavyweight boxing has been a lot harder than a lot of people think.
After Fury beat and outclassed Wladimir Klitschko he went on a downward spiral of alcohol and drug addiction as well as some tough battles with his mental health.
It has taken him a long time to get back into his best physical shape but now it finally looks like he is there and he looks phenomenal.

Paddy Pimblett says he would love to bring the UFC to Anfield
The newest high profile signing to the UFC, Paddy Pimblett has revealed that he would love to be the first fighter to bring the UFC to the legendary Anfield stadium in Liverpool.
More insight into Jon Jones' claim that he does not get paid enough to fight
Take a look at this very interesting tweet which compares the amount of money that Jon Jones got paid to fight Daniel Cormier in their second fight to the amount which Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder got paid even though both fights accumulated the same pay per view buys.
Wilder/Fury made $25M each before PPV money for the rematch that did 800K buys. Jones-DC did 800K buys. Did Jones even make $5M from that? He called $8-10M “way too low” for Ngannou fight, which will hit (likely clear?) 800K buys. Just some perspective on how underpaid Jones is. https://t.co/cNqbQ0CExd— Simon Samano (@SJSamano) March 31, 2021
