WBA and WBO heavyweight champion Tyson Fury has admitted ‘taking cocaine, lots of it’ and in an exclusive interview with Rolling Stone. The unbeaten 28 year-old, who stands 6ft 9, also said‘I hope I die everyday’.
Fury’s behavior has become very erratic over the last few days. In the space of three hours on Tuesday the unbeaten Manchester fighter announced his retirement one moment and changed his mind again shortly after.
Then earlier today in an interview with Rolling Stone, Fury said: "I don’t even want to wake up. I hope I die every day. And that’s a bad thing to say when I’ve got three children and a lovely wife isn’t it? But I don’t want to live anymore. And if I could take me own life - and I wasn’t a Christian - I’d take it in a second. I just hope someone kills me before I kill me self. I’ll have to spend eternity in hell.
"I’m in a very bad place at the moment. I don’t know whether I’m coming or going. I don’t know what’s going to happen to me. I don’t know if I’m going to see the year out to be honest."
Regarding taking cocaine, Fury added: I”’ve done a lot of things in my life. I’ve done lots of cocaine. Lots of it. Why shouldn’t I take cocaine? It’s my life isn’t it? I can do what I want. Yeah, I have done cocaine.
"Plenty of people have done cocaine as well. What the f*** has that got to do with anything? That ain’t a performance enhancing drug. Am I not allowed to have a life now as well? Do they want to take my personal life off me too?
"I’ve not been in a gym for months. I’ve not been training. I’ve been going through depression. I just don’t want to live anymore, if you know what I’m saying. I’ve had total enough of it. They’ve forced me to the breaking edge. Never mind cocaine. I just didn’t care. I don’t want to live anymore.
