From hook to book: Tyson Fury goes into print again

Tyson Fury is already an award-winning author, and the world heavyweight champion is now officially in print again after the successful release of his latest book.

The WBC, Ring magazine and lineal king scooped two prestigious prizes earlier this year as his brutally honest ‘Behind The Mask’ won both Telegraph Sports Book of the Year and Sports Autobiography of the Year.

And now Fury (30-0-1) has released his latest surefire best seller, entitled ‘The Furious Method: Transform Your Mind, Body & Goals’.

Fury took to Twitter on Thursday to celebrate the fact his new offering was ranking at #1 in Amazon’s list of new releases.

The gives an insight into Fury’s amazing comeback to become world heavyweight champion again. He said: “Want to know how I lost weight, came back from the depths of depression, and smashed Wilder – and how you can make your comeback too? My new book is available for preorder!”

The 320-page book, published by Century, currently retails at £10 for hardcover version on Amazon.

Tyson Fury’s new book is released on November 12.

Fury of course is not the only fight game figure recently going to market with a book, as top promoter Eddie Hearn – who looks after Fury’s big rival Anthony Joshua – has done exactly that too.

His ‘Relentless: 12 Rounds To Success’ hit the stands on October 29. It is described as “a motivational and inspirational guide to success, from one of the most successful and recognisable boxing promoters in the world.”

Fury of course is an extremely busy man at present, as he is about to start preparing in earnest for his next fight. that should have been a trilogy showdown with American Deontay Wilder. But with that plan scuppered, he now appears likely to face unbeaten German Agit Kabayel (20-0) at the Royal Albert Hall on December 5.

Should he emerge victorious from that showdown, it is likely Fury will meet Joshua in the biggest fight in British boxing history next summer. They have already agreed in principle the financial structure of a two-fight deal which would likely smash all domestic records for pay-per-view buys and live gate.
