Long live The Gypsy King! Announced today, Netflix is developing a multi-part documentary on the lineal and the WBC champion Tyson Fury.
Netflix and Tyson Fury
Tyson Fury is the biggest name in heavyweight boxing today. The loud and boisterous champion has a fantastic life story full of highs and lows. Netflix is teaming up with Fury to bring his life story to the “big” screen. The working title for Netflix is “At Home With The Furys” which almost has a reality television sound to it.
In addition to Tyson Fury starring in the documentary, his father John, his wife Paris and their six kids are going to be a part of the documentary. The documentary looks to give us a in depth look at Fury’s life. It is not said if his brother, Tommy Fury, will be in the show. Tommy Fury was linked to a couple fights with Jake Paul.
Fury is coming off of a spectacular win over Dillian Whyte in April of this year. That fight was a huge homecoming for Fury after his comeback and was a massive success. Fury retired after his comeback from a binge of drugs and depression after beating Wladimir Klitschko in 2015.
Mental Health and The Comeback
Tyson Fury is not shy to tell his story and talk about his struggles with depression. After becoming heavyweight champion of the world, Fury stepped away from boxing, ballooned up to over 400 pounds, binged on drugs and alcohol, and almost took his life by driving off a bridge in his Lamborghini.
Fury went on The Joe Rogan Experience and talked about his story and also published several books about his struggle.
Despite all his accomplishments in the ring, Fury’s story with his mental health is the most inspiring thing about the boxing icon. The documentary is bound to be fantastic and display all the emotions that come with the Fury family.
