According to The Sun, Fury fights Canadian Neven Pajkic in Manchester on Saturday.

He revealed: "One minute I'm happy, over the moon. And the next minute I'm sad - like suicidal sad. I feel like getting in my car and running it into a wall at 100 miles an hour. I don't know what's wrong with me. I'm messed up."

He added: "I think I need a psychiatrist. I do believe I am mentally disturbed in some way. I'm just glad I've got boxing though, I feel better in the ring. That's when I feel some relief."

Fury was named after Iron Mike Tyson by his dad Gipsy John Fury - a one-time heavyweight contender who was jailed for assault earlier this year. Tyson believes his tough upbringing could be why he gets so low.

He added: "Maybe it was the fact that when I was a kid we didn't have a family life. My mother and father were always shouting and screaming. Dad had different women and different kids down the road. My mum had 14 pregnancies - but only four of us survived."

"But I've never been in trouble in my life. I've not got a criminal record. Never had a fight outside boxing. So I'm very different to my dad," Tyson said.
