He said: "After what happened last month, I am just glad that I can hopefully continue and we will see where it takes us. & # 39;
& # 39; When you see a man who drinks himself dead to escape reality … & # 39 ;: John Fury reveals depths of despair, son Tyson sunk in depression before a miraculous comeback … and says & # 39; Gypsy King & # 39; Donald must go and visit Trump in the White House!
- Tyson Fury played a stunning performance to beat Deontay Wilder in Las Vegas
- The British boxer has come back from depression and addiction in just two year
- Fury & # 39; s father John was on Good Morning Britain on the journey of Tyson
- He also said he had to visit American President Donald Trump in the White House
Tyson Fury & # 39; s father John Fury opened the low point reached his son during his boxing hiatus with depression and addiction for his astonishing return to the ring.
Speaking with Good Morning Britain Fury Snr. admitted he squeezed himself & # 39; in the progress that Tyson has made over the past two years, and said that the heavyweight star must accept the invitation from Donald Trump to visit him in the White House.
Fury, nicknamed the & # 39; Gypsy King & # 39 ;, was Saturday night in Las Vegas in inspired form when he stopped Deontay Wilder in the seventh round of their rematch, when the American corner in the towel.
I will be honest with you, I am sat here today and I continue to pinch myself because where he two years ago, there was actually no hope & # 39 ;, said John Fury at GMB.
"He was so low, he went so far back that I didn't think he would ever come back. A light switch just went on and off, but here we are today.
"It was a dark time when you see a man drinking himself dead to escape reality, he ate all kinds of food in the bucket load and he did it for you.
& # 39; When your son no longer cares for [about] what you think, a father and a parent, it's time to worry. & # 39;
However, Tyson managed to get his life back on track after a period of depression after his victory against Wladmir Klitschko in November 2015.
After the first fight against Wilder, which ended in a shared decision-making in December 2018, Fury received the victory he longed for in the spectacular style at the weekend, beating his opponent twice in a dominant display.
& # 39; I immediately spoke to him on the phone from the BT studio and congratulated him on what he had done, how proud I had been, & # 39 ; John continued.
"I see the joy in his face, his life is now complete. And now there is a difference with him.
"When he first defeated Klitschko [Wladimir]his body language was not great. But this time he is at the top of the world, he is exactly where he should be. & # 39;
Even US President Donald Trump responded to the & # 39; big fight & # 39; and said he would invite Fury and Wilder to the White House – the move Fury Snr. approved from.
& # 39; That's not good for anger! And I am a big fan of Donald Trump, it was a great trip and see where it ended.
& # 39; And what a great point to bow and meet him at the White House! & # 39;

Nine months after his career almost ended in a bone -Splattering crash in a French garden wall, Chris Froome's return to cycling goes into the desert environment of the seven-phase UAE Tour on Sunday.
It is a long way from the sand dunes of Dubai to the 2020 Tour the France starting in Nice, but Froome & hope to win a record equal to the fifth Tour will depend on how well he negotiates this week's return to racing.
Speaking in Dubai admitted a seemingly nervous Froome that there had been times when he had doubted whether he could ever come back.
& # 39; Yes, there have been many difficult moments in the last eight months, & # 39; said the 34 year old. "This feels like the first day back at school."
Froome prepared for a time trial of the Criterium du Dauphine race in June last year when a gust of wind caught his bike and sent him to crash with speed against a wall.
He suffered fractures to his thigh, hip, elbow ribs and neck, was flown to the hospital and underwent surgery for six hours.
He spent time in intensive care and then looked from home in Monaco while Egan Bernal won the overall victory in the Tour de France last July.
Since then, Froome has avoided the media and focused on his rehabilitation. But with the Tour de France this year starting earlier than normal – at the end of June to prevent a collision with the Tokyo Olympics – he races against the clock to be on time.
& # 39; The goal was always to try to start the season relatively early. I think the fact that I am here in the UAE is proof that it went really well, and I had hoped. I am very happy to have this second chance to be back in the peloton. & # 39;
The Tour de France starts this year on June 27 in Nice and, if selected, Froome competes for managerial tasks with 23-year-old Bernal and 2018 Tour winner and Ineos team-mate, Geraint Thomas, second in July last year at Bernal in Paris.
The return of Froome, even in the relative calm of the UAE Tour, will be a rigorous test of how realistic his hope for a successful comeback is.
With seven stages and two top finishes, the UAE Tour, although notable as other European road races, will prove a brutality of its damaged right leg and endurance.
& # 39; Racing back is the only thing I've been thinking about for months, & Froome said. "The year went incredibly well, but having said that, I still have to manage my expectations. It will take me a while to get back into race-winning form. "
Froome & # 39; s teammate Thomas said this week:" Every year the standard goes up. In the early season, races are so much faster than two years ago. The entire platoon trains better and they are more professional. & # 39;
Froome rejected any suggestion that he might be battling to win the week-long desert race, saying instead that he just wanted to get through & # 39; & # 39 ;.
After such serious injuries, chances of making a complete comeback and being selected for the Team Ineos Tour de France line-up remain uncertain.
Team Director Brett Lancaster of Team Ineos said: "He is doing well and on schedule. If anyone can do it, it would be Chris. "
But Lancaster confirmed that there was no room for sentiment in a team of all stars. & # 39; He must go well. He has made it clear that he wants to race, but it is still a while for the Tour. "

& # 39; He had to pay for his mistakes outside of the sport & # 39 ;: Conor McGregor & # 39; s coach John Kavanagh says he & # 39; incredibly proud & # 39; is on the Irishman comeback and greeted him as a single-handed UFC mainstream
John Kavanagh revealed that he even has 60-year-old women who ask how the training of the Dubliner goes.
The 31-year-old hunter is embroiled in a series of controversies, including being hit by a driving ban for speeding offenses in 2018 and beaten with a € 1000 fine after attacking a man in Dublin in November.
But he returned to the octagon in January after a year and retired the American D from Onald Cerrone in the first round
Mr. Kavanagh, 43, told RTE : I am incredibly proud of Conor. I realize he was the individual who made the sport so famous.
& # 39; I am stopped by 60-year-old ladies who ask me how his wrestling training is going. & # 39;
He said: & # 39; He has spoken to himself about his slipping and his mistakes. He had to pay for people outside the sport. & # 39;
The coach added that McGregor belonged to them and that he has his support to make himself better.
NEXT POTENTIAL OPPONENTS OF MCGREGOR:
Nate Diaz, Jorge Masvidal, Kamaru Usman
Khabib Nurmagomedov, Tony Ferguson, Justin Gaethje, Justin Gaethje, Justin Gaethje, Justin Gaethje Poirier, Nate Diaz
Alexander Volkanovski, Max Holloway
There was speculation about a third fight with Nate Diaz, particularly with Khabib otherwise engaged and defending the lightweight title against Tony Ferguson in April.
But it seems that the Irishman only has eyes for the Russian, who completely defeated him in 2018.
White told BT Sport : I don't know [about a third fight with Diaz being next]. He is focused on Khabib. He wants the Khabib fight. & # 39;
McGregor has often expressed his wish to be a & # 39; season & # 39; to deal with and engage in three or four fights before 2021.
But White believes he & # 39; I remain standing aside until Khabib is available to put him in a rematch, provided he finds a way past Ferguson.
When asked if he believes McGregor will wait for his time, White added: & I do. But you never know with him. We will see.
& i I have no answers for you about him now. I mean, he really just fought, you know what I mean? And he doesn't look at Khabib and Tony to see what happens. & # 39;
Despite McGregor's clear desire to prove himself against the undefeated champion of Dagestani, Khabib is unwavering in his refusal to take the rematch.
He wants the Dubliner to deserve a shot at him and not be tempted by the huge payday that is offered.
& # 39; I am surprised that people are even asking me about a rematch, "he said recently. & # 39; I did everything I wanted, he even gave up.
& # 39; How can we even discuss a rematch?
& # 39; Everyone saw what happened in the octagon [versus McGregor]. I checked the fight at every step.
& # 39; I did everything I wanted, he even gave up. How can we even discuss a rematch? We are only talking about continuing the festivities and earning money. & # 39;
When he was re-examined to see if he was interested in the second fight with McGregor, he said: & # 39; Not at all & # 39 ;, before a reporter intervened: & # 39; What about for $ 100 million? & # 39;
& # 39; Why do I need that kind of money, & Khabib added. & # 39; For example, there are so many organizations. There is not only football for the blind, there is sambo, other sports.
& # 39; Let the UFC give it to them if they don't know what to do with the money. But give me $ 100 million to beat that idiot up again? I don't think that is rational. & # 39;
Ben Stokes broke helmet after a short 83.9 mph ball from Josh Hazlewood … before England inspires all-rounder historical comeback to win third Ashes Test
England Ben Stokes became the newest Ashes star who suffered a scare after his helmet was damaged by a short ball from Josh Hazlewood – before he inspired England to make a famous comeback in the third test.
The hosts pursued a goal of 359 runs to prevent Australia's Ashes in the third test in Headingley and Stokes put on a famous exhibition with 135 runs while England won with one wicket.
The series is peppered with head attacks, notably Aussie batsman Steve Smith claims during the second test at Lord & # 39; s last week. And Stokes became the last concern early in the day after he was struck by the delivery of Hazlewood, who broke parts of his helmet.
The English the all-rounder seemed undisturbed by the incident as he calmly went to look for the damaged parts of his helmet that had been strewn across the fold.
He received treatment on the field, but was allowed to continue by England's medical staff – and he allowed England to count it to lead a one-run victory.
Stokes did not turn 135, overshadowing the spirit of Sir Ian Botham in 1981 and even his race-winning turn in the World Cup Final, to lead England to their record pursuit of 359.
Shortly after suffering from the fear, he built on his slow and steady accumulation of two runs of 60 balls by hitting four at Nathan Lyon via mid-wicket. [1 9459007]
England lost Joe Root for 77 on Day Four of the Third Test, a competition they had to win if they hope to prevent Australia from retaining its urn this month.
Australia set a goal of 359 after their two innings despite Talisman Smith's absence, but in the end it was not enough to seal everyone except the ashes.
Their talisman-batsman got a nasty blow to the head during the second test at Lord & # 39; s off at 92mph Jofra Archer delivery.
Smith was diagnosed with delayed concussion and became the first test cretereter to be replaced when he was replaced by Marnus Labuschagne.
His replacement has also been the subject of a scare after he was beaten twice during the morning session on Saturday in Headingley.
Labuschagne also required a check during a net session on Tuesday, after feeling the power of a delivery to Mitchell Marsh. Jason Roy in England was also beaten in a net session on Tuesday, in which the 29-year-old was hit by a throw-in from the former international Marcus Trescothick, who works temporarily with the team.
Roy was later checked for a delayed concussion, but everything was released.

& # 39; These guys have proven to have great strength and guts & # 39 ;: Antonio Conte greets his Inter-stars after a stunning comeback against rivals AC Milan while Romelu Lukaku in & # 39; beautiful & # 39; second half enjoyed after scoring again
Conte & # 39; s team is at the top Series A where they are tied to points with Juventus but they had to fight back after AC Milan leading two goals had been built thanks to the efforts of Ante Rebic and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Inter showed a great spirit to grab all three points, with Marcelo Brozovic, Matias Vecino, Stefan de Vrij and Romelu Lukaku all scoring, much to the delight of Conte.
As reported by Football Italia Conte said: "It was a special evening for sure. The first half put us in great trouble, perhaps more than ever this season, and there was a risk of hammering.
& # 39; Instead, we did well to find the balance, to understand where we needed to improve, to have faith in what we did and the honor goes to these boys.
& # 39; Aside from the result, I am happy to see them resisted by strokes and to resist because that means they are preparing for something very important. & # 39;
We cannot achieve everything from one day to the next, but we are building. These guys proved today that they have a lot of strength and guts. & # 39;
Meanwhile, Lukaku was delighted when he scored his 22nd goal this season in 30 games in all games this season.
As reported by Football Italia Lukaku said: & # 39; The second half was great. I think we have allowed them too many spaces in the first half and Milan deserves congratulations for their performance in the first half, "the Belgian told Sky Sport Italia.
& # 39; We played with a different level of intensity after the break and in the end we deserved it.The first half was tough for us, but everyone in the stadium saw the mentality of this Inter, our refusal to give up and our wish to win.
I always say that the most important thing I do is work for the team. I am here to win, we won this evening and I am very happy. Now we prepare for the following competitions. & # 39;
There is another important game for Inter next weekend as they travel to third place Lazio.
Prior to that, Conte & # 39; s team are in Coppa Italia action as they organize Napoli in the first leg of their semi-final.
Recent arrival Christian Eriksen only appeared as a replacement and Conte emphasized that it is important for the 27-year-old to build up his condition.
Conte said: & Ashley Young and Victor Moses, because they are wing-backs, don't need as much guidance during training. Plus Moses was already playing with me in Chelsea.
& # 39; It is more complicated for midfielders, because I always request something in advance and in memory for both offensive and defensive movements. Christian knows football well, he reads it, but is also not entirely 100% fitness.
& # 39; I had thought to use Eriksen behind Lukaku, but then decided not to transform things too much, because it is important for us to play with the two strikers.
