Tyson Fury: "I have a new lease of life"

The former heavyweight champion fights in Las Vegas this weekend.

Tyson Fury intends to remain healthy and stay out of trouble as he plots his way back to the top of the heavyweight division.

The 31-year-old Mancunian relinquished the belts he won against Wladimir Klitschko after much-publicised mental health problems and a ban for a failed drugs test.

Fury has one eye on a February rematch with WBC champion Deontay Wilder after their meeting last December finished in a controversial draw but for now he has to focus on Saturday’s Las Vegas bout against relative unknown Otto Wallin.

Fury’s response was “Hell yeah. It is a privilege to be boxing on Mexican Independence weekend.”

Wallin has a 20-fight unbeaten record, including 13 knockouts, but has never fought at this level.

But the Swede, whose father died of a heart attack in May, is relishing the prospect of fighting the former heavyweight champion.

“I was very happy. It dropped out of the sky but we are finally here and it is a dream come true for me,” he said.

“I come from a small place in Sweden (Sundsvall) and now I am here on the big stage I have been dreaming about and I am ready to put it all on the line.”
