Tyson Fury once admitted to sleeping with over 500 women before he later calling himself “a liar and cheater".
As a young fighter, the boxing star made the bold statement that he believed his muscle tone and fitness levels had improved after having so much sex.
Tyson has gone on to become one of the best-known fighters in the world and hasn't shied away from being known as a celebrity too, making numerous outlandish claims and enjoying being in the spotlight.
And in a frank interview in 2015, he spoke openly about his behaviour and admitted he has "regrets" when it comes to his sex life.
“I’m a liar, a cheater, a proud, vain person. Everything that’s bad I do or have done. We all make mistakes, don’t we?” he told Boxing News Online.
"The only thing I ever regret in life is having sex before marriage. If I could erase that then my life would be practically perfect. I regret all the filth that you do with people. I must have had sex with over 500 women, more, I don’t know, I’ve lost count.”
Tyson, who has been married to wife Paris Fury since 2008, then described his past behaviour as “disgusting” and vowed to let go of all “the bad stuff” such as drinking and nights out partying.
"It’s pure filth and horribleness. I look at that now as pure disgusting. I’m not a religious person, but I like to help people and do good things. I’m stopping all the bad stuff,” the fighting champion said.
He continued: "I’ve packed in the drinking and going out. I can get up now, go and take the kids somewhere on a Saturday morning rather than being in bed till 12 o’clock.”
Tyson has gone to achieve more success in his career since giving up his vices, as he later beat Wladimir Klitschko in Dusseldorf and has become the unified heavyweight champion.
He will be back in the ring this Saturday as he attempts to hold onto his titles when he faces Dillian Whyte.
