Tyson Fury launches NFT collection

Tyson Fury is to launch the world's first boxing NFT collection.

The two-time world heavyweight champion is set to release a premium collection of items including playing cards and memorabilia, capturing a remarkable career that has seen him rise from the lows of drug addiction and depression to the very top of his sport.

Fury is the latest famous name to enter the world of NFT's, following music stars such as Lewis Capaldi, The Weeknd and Calvin Harris.

NFTs (non-fungible tokens) are a type of cryptocurrency assets where single-impression unique digital art and goods known as the 'token' can be sold.

Fury, 32, is teaming up with artist George Rollo and crypto experts Fomolabs for the venture, which he is starting with an exclusive NFT artwork piece that he has digitally signed.

The Gypsy King is set to fight Anthony Joshua in a blockbuster bout this summer with promoter Eddie Hearn insisting that it will still go ahead and that he was "grafting" to make the event happen despite concerns over the date and venue.

He said: "Unless you’re trying to talk yourself out of this fight, all I’m doing is grafting my nuts off to try and make this fight.

"I’m traveling all around the world this week trying to get it done, and all I hear from the other side is, ‘Yeah, well, it’s not going to happen, is it? It’s not a great time at the moment.’

"I said to [Bob] Arum the other day, ‘Where’s your mojo?’ I’m flying all over the world, and people are saying to me, ‘I saw an interview with this guy, and he said he doesn’t even think it’ll happen.'"
