WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury has received several offers to make a movie about his life, to detail his unexpected return to the sport after being away for a few years.
Fury shocked he sport when he traveled to Germany in November of 2015 to win a twelve round decision over Wladimir Klitschko to capture the WBA, IBF, WBO, IBO heavyweight titles. At the time, Klitschko had been undefeated for over a decade.
Following that win, Fury was out of the ring for more than two years - as he battled severe depression and substance abuse issues.
Fury did not fight again until June of 2018.
He also began to lose a lot of weight, as he gained tremendous pounds during his time away from the sport.
Fury lost well over a 100 pounds since returning to boxing.
By December 2018, he secured a world title shot against Deontay Wilder. He was a huge underdog, but put in a memorable performance to fight Wilder to a controversial twelve round draw at Staples Center in Los Angeles.
This past February at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Fury dropped and stopped Wilder in their pay-per-view rematch to capture the WBC title.
Fury is going to wait until his career comes to a close, to involve himself in serious discussions for a film on his life.
"I haven't (had serious discussions on making the film) at the moment because I am going to finish my career before doing a movie. We have had offers for the rights of the Tyson Fury movie from some of the biggest TV companies in the world," Fury told the Lockdown Lowdown.
"So it's in the pipeline but I'm not willing to do it right now because I've still got more important things to think about this time in my career.
"(For example), beating up all the leftover contenders and champions that are left."
