Tyson Fury has penned an open letter to his fans opening up about his battle with depression, his major weight gain, and his plans for the future.

Fury has not had a boxing match since his stunning victory over Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015 at Esprit Arena in Düsseldorf.

Fury’s letter to his fans discusses his battle with drink, drugs, and crippling depression that made him sad that he did not pass away in the middle of the night.

Fury used Twitter to get his letter out to his fans and you can read Tyson Fury’s harrowing letter below.

"I have had the height of success in my life and the lowest of lows to the point of not wanting to live.

"Waking up in the morning sad that I didn't pass away in the night. I hit the drinks and drugs trying to find a way out but it didn't help.

"I ballooned in weight, was very sad every day for almost two years. But with the help of god I have made a massive turnaround back training on a mission to put the record straight.

“I want to make my family, friends and fans proud again.

"I'm sorry I let everyone down. It will never happen again, if I can change and beat my demons so can you.

"I'm living proof anyone can come through the worst times in our lives, no matter what we must battle through and all help and love each other. I'm here to help others like they helped me.

"All the best, your champ, Tyson2fastFury."

The 28-year-old's weight ballooned to as much as 25 stone in the darkest points of his depression, but thankfully, Fury is on the path to recovery and is back in training and is looking to put the record straight.

Fury has since been videoed back in the ring doing some sparring, and despite his weight gain, he still looked nifty and quick with his jabs.

All of the boxing world will be hoping and praying that he can make a return to the ring one day.

Tyson Fury’s apology comes on the eve of Anthony Joshua’s title fight against Klitschko at Wembley Stadium, a bout that is mooted to be the biggest fight in British boxing history with an estimated 90,000 fight fans cramming into the home of English football.

Joshua v Klitschko will be shown tonight on Sky Box Office live with both fighters expected to enter the ring around 10pm.
