Tyson Fury deflects Daniel Kinahan link before bout with Dillian Whyte

As the unbeaten heavyweight champion of the world prepares for a record crowd of 94,000 on Saturday at Wembley Stadium, Tyson Fury has every right to feel he’s above it all.

Except he’s not.

Fury didn’t hesitate earlier this week to revisit the turbulent path he traveled to return to a major bout in Europe, which comes more than six years after he upset former champion Wladimir Klitschko in Germany.

“From where I started all those years ago, to come back from me mental health (battles), being a druggie, an alcoholic,” Fury said during a Wednesday news conference. “I’m not ashamed. It’s part of who I am. To come back from that, to the top of the world and being back in England fighting me old pal Dillian for all the glory and all the belts, we didn’t think we’d be doing that. It’s been a great journey.”
