G2 is handling the worldwide rights and publicity for Matt Ogborn’s new biography of Tyson Fury, entitled The Comeback King which is due for release this September.
Once the bad boy of British boxing, Tyson Fury was widely underrated – his flamboyant lifestyle and outlandish antics drawing attention to his life outside the ring, rather than his achievements in it. But a truly dominant display against one of the greatest heavyweight boxers of all time, Wladimir Klitschko, changed all of that. Fury became champion of the world and resolutely silenced his doubters. With the world at his feet, however, Fury struggled with depression and started to party hard. He was banned from boxing for the use of illegal substances and was stripped of his title. After ballooning to nearly 24 stone in weight, many questioned whether he would ever step into the ring again. What followed was one of the great sporting comebacks. Fury rediscovered his love of boxing and began training again. In just nine months he was back in shape and on the title trail, with Deontay Wilder, the WBC heavyweight champion, the man in his sights. The two faced off in LA in what was one of the most memorable fights of the modern era. Wilder controversially retained his title following a 12-round split decision draw, but Fury won over the boxing world and wrote his name into the history books.
