TYSON FURY has labelled his battle with depression as “the hardest fight of my life” but insists he has turned a corner as he prepares to launch his comeback later this year.

Fury, the former unified world heavyweight champion, last year surrendered the WBA and WBO titles he won from Wladimir Klitschko in one of boxing’s great upsets in a bid to conquer his personal demons.

Earlier this week he announced plans to return to the ring on May 13 – although he remains suspended by the British Boxing Board of Control, putting a potential roadblock on any comeback – and on Friday followed it up by speaking about his condition.
