News surfaced recently that Boxing heavyweight world champion Tyson Fury had failed a drug test for cocaine. The news came just days after Fury had pulled out of his rematch against Wladimir Klitschko on September 23rd for unidentified reasons, stating he was deemed “medically unfit” to fight.
While it was expected that Fury would be stripped of the heavyweight world championship, there has been no word yet on what course of action will be taken against him in the wake of his failed drug test.
Despite that, Fury has spoke out on his own through an interview with Rolling Stone Magazine, where he admitted to not only cocaine usage, but also being bipolar and having manic depression, ultimately admitting that he doesn’t want to live anymore.
“Listen, I’ve done a lot of things in my life. I’ve done lots of cocaine. Lots of it. Why shouldn’t I take cocaine? It’s my life isn’t it? I can do what I want. Yeah, I have done cocaine. Plenty of people have done cocaine as well. What the fuck has that got to do with anything? That ain’t a performance enhancing drug. Am I not allowed to have a life now as well? Do they want to take my personal life off me too? I’ve not been in a gym for months. I’ve not been training. I’ve been going through depression. I just don’t want to live anymore, if you know what I’m saying. I’ve had total enough of it. They’ve forced me to the breaking edge. Never mind cocaine. I just didn’t care. I don’t want to live anymore. So cocaine is a little minor thing compared to not wanting to live anymore.”
Fury then went on to admit that he hadn’t been training for his fight with Klitschko, but has spent his days drinking and doing drugs.
“From that day forward, I’ve never done any training,” he says. “I’ve been out drinking, Monday to Friday to Sunday, and taking cocaine. I can’t deal with it and the only thing that helps me is when I get drunk out of me mind.”
“They say I’ve got a version of bipolar,” he says. “I’m a manic depressive. I just hope someone kills me before I kill myself.”
