Tyson Fury brilliantly explains why 'being fat is great'

Tyson Fury is one of the most polarising boxers of all-time for a multitude of reasons.

Because of his gregarious nature and extrovert personality, people often forget that the Gyspy King is still undefeated with 18 knockouts in his 25 wins.

Furthermore, he was the unified WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, and IBO heavyweight champion and he never lost those belts.

The man he beat, Wladimir Klitschko, and compatriot Anthony Joshua will battle for those straps on April 29 and although 2 Fast is currently out of the title picture, his comeback is firmly in the works.

The 28-year-old fell off the rails after winning the world titles and is reported to have suffered from depression, which resulted in him taking cocaine.

The British Boxing Board of Control subsequently decided to suspend Fury's boxing license and it didn't look like he would ever step in the ring again.

Especially when pictures of the Manchester-born fighter emerged in a kebab shop showing a significant weight gain. Since those pictures, Fury has admitted he has ballooned to 25 stone since stepping away from boxing.

Now, however, Fury is in the middle of training for a comeback and he has made a case for why being overweight is a good thing.

If that provides Fury with the necessary motivation to get himself in shape, then good luck to him!

Eddie Hearn has suggested that Fury is one of a couple of candidates who could fight Tony Bellew by the end of 2017.

A rematch with David Haye is also possible, but any matchmaking with those three British fighters would be must-see.
