Tyson Fury ‘Struggling To Breathe’ Revealed

Deontay Wilder was set to face off against Britain’s WBC champion Tyson Fury for the WBC World Heavyweight Championship in Las Vegas on July 24. Ahead of their boxing match, they had a press conference where they could not stop staring at each other. However, that was cancelled after Tyson Fury tested positive for COVID-19. Tyson Fury also leaked bad news related to Wilder’s health previously.



Top Rank’s CEO Bob Arum, who co-promotes WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, recently spoke to Sky Sports, where he stated that Tyson Fury was not mentally affected by the numerous delays in the upcoming third fight.

“I’m not a psychiatrist but I spent considerable time with Fury after the arbitrator’s decision then after his diagnosis. It seemed to me he wasn’t affected by anything. Tyson had a great mentality and none of these issues have any affect. Is he fooling me? Fooling himself? I don’t think so. None of this has affected him adversely.

“It was negligence on all of ours parts – Top Rank’s and Tyson’s. It started out with a nice, relatively small group, of sparring partners in our gym,” Arum said.

“Before anybody realized the sparring partners were bringing in friends and [Fury’s trainer] Sugarhill Steward had other fighters that he was training. Nobody was testing. It was going on the way we used to do it, before COVID. That was irresponsible on all of our parts.

“Tyson had a relatively mild case but had heavy breathing and congestion. There was no choice but to postpone it. We are hoping the bans on travel will be lifted and we will get some Brits over for the fight. They bring such a vibe to an arena!”
