Tyson Fury is making a documentary film about his life, according to a report from The Sun.

The Gypsy King, 33, has done a series of interviews alongside wife Paris, 32, for the Bafta-nominated team behind his hit 2020 TV series ‘Tyson Fury: The Gypsy King’.

It comes as Fury caught a flight back to the UK on a budget airline after enjoying a much-needed break with his family in the south of France.

The report claims the crew have already started filming for a fly-on-the-wall documentary for Netflix.

An insider said: “The creators of this doc want to provide a real behind-the-scenes glimpse into what Tyson’s life is like — as a boxer, a husband and dad of six.

“The cameras will be observing him and his family and doing interviews.”

Fury made it 32-0 before announcing his shock retirement from boxing.

The Gypsy King knocked Dillian Whyte out in the sixth round last month at Wembley Stadium on April 23 to retain his WBC heavyweight title.

However, his trainer SugarHill Steward admitted that it is not unheard of for boxers to go back on their word.

He previously said: “There are a lot of fighters that have been retired and come out of retirement.

“There are a lot of fighters that have been retired and stay retired.

“It’s just up to Tyson Fury, I stand by his decision.

“For him being retired I’m happy because that’s what he wants.

“I know a lot of the retirement has to do with not getting the fights he wants and it’s really mentally challenging to be offered fights and go through negotiations for fights and then for them to fall through at the end.

“These things happen to many fighters around the world.

“You wouldn’t expect it to happen on this big a stage but it does happen and it’s something fighters have to deal with.

“We on the outside sometimes don’t understand that.

“We just say ‘if he gets the fight he’ll come back’, it’s not as easy as being on the outside going through what happens on the inside.

“But it’s the sport he loves so much, and it’s hurting him like that.

“Those things have to be taken into consideration and respected.”
