Speaking on it, ‘The Gypsy King’ said, “I have two characters. So Tyson Fury as a man, is a very flawed character. We are only human after all, we all make mistakes. We are all tempted, we all do thing on a daily basis that maybe we shouldn’t do. But ‘The Gypsy King’ is untouchable. And when I am in the boxing ring or when I am that person, I have never had any trouble.”

“The Gypsy King has never experienced mental health issue. He has never experienced downtime or lowness, or depression or anxiety never had suicidal thoughts. Never had anything.”
