KNOCKOUT BIOGRAPHY ON TYSON FURY

KNOCKOUT BIOGRAPHY ON TYSON FURY

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.
