Heavyweight boxing champion Tyson Fury wanted to “cancel” his reality TV show on Netflix only a few weeks into its production. Fury’s wife, Paris, recently revealed the second-guessing of the boxer when appearing on the radio.
At Home With the Furys arrived on the streaming service earlier this week (Wednesday, August 16th), where Fury, Paris and their six children and the subject. It follows Fury as he questions whether he ought to retire from boxing or not.
When appearing on the Capital XTRA Breakfast with Robert Bruce and Shayna Marie radio show, Paris said, “We got halfway through filming, and he [Tyson] wanted to cancel the whole show!”
Fury followed up, “Yeah, I wanted out; I was like, a couple of weeks in, I said: ‘Is there any way?’ I’d be on the phone with my lawyers, ‘Is there any way I can get out of this? I don’t know what I’ve signed up for again.’”
“I said I’d never do it again. I’ve done it again. I’ve made a mistake,” Fury added. However, he went on to explain that his indecision over whether or not to do the series was largely down to his mental health problems.
“That’s just my bipolar going up and down all the time; one minute I’m happy, the next minute I’m not, and it’s very evident to see my emotional roller-coaster throughout this episode,” the boxer noted. “And people are going to be shocked because I can take ten turns in an hour.”
