Behind the Mask: My Autobiography [9781529124866]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

The extraordinary story of the rise and fall and rise again of Tyson Fury...

A Manchester lad from Irish Traveller stock, born three months premature and weighing just a pound at birth, Tyson (named after his father's boxing hero) grew up to become one of the most unlikely heavyweight champions in history.

This `dream come true' soon turned to nightmare, however, as alcohol and cocaine abuse took hold and Tyson was stripped of his titles.

What followed was the darkest moment of his life - detailed in this book for the first time - in which he came within seconds of ending everything.

 Like all the greatest stories, though, there is redemption and Tyson defies all the odds and literally drags himself to his feet.

10 million people around the globe watched Fury fight Wilder in the biggest fight of the boxing calendar.

Speaking candidly about his struggles with mental health, this is Tyson Fury as you have never seen him before.

Behind the Mask is an unflinching autobiography from the greatest boxer of our time and a man who has demonstrated strength of a very different kind by conquering his demons.

`I didn't believe boxers could be role models, but Tyson Fury has changed my mind... This 30-year-old Mancunian has made us all think twice about the possibilities of redemption.' SIMON KELNER, INDEPENDENT

`Tyson Fury has become Britain's most unlikely inspirational figure... the sight of a broken Fury caught a mood with the public. Never was the epitaph People's Champion more apt' RON LEWIS, THE TIMES 

'Tyson Fury is an Amazing Real-Life Champion' Sylvester Stallone

AUTHOR: Tyson Fury is the undefeated lineal heavyweight champion of the world. Born and raised in Manchester, Fury weighed just 1lb at birth after being born three months premature. His father John named him after Mike Tyson. From Irish traveller heritage, the Gypsy King is undefeated in 28 professional fights, winning 27 with 19 knockouts, and drawing once. His most famous victory came in 2015, when he stunned longtime champion Wladimir Klitschko to win the WBA, IBF and WBO world heavyweight titles. He was forced to vacate the belts because of issues with drugs, alcohol and mental health, and did not fight again for more than two years. Most thought he was done with boxing forever. Until an amazing comeback fight with Deontay Wilder in December 2018. It was an instant classic, ending in a split decision tie. Outside of the ring, Tyson Fury is a mental health ambassador. He donated his million dollar purse from the Deontay Wilder fight to the homeless.
