Tyson Fury says he is planning on travelling into space

Fury is in the running to be crowned BBC Sports Personality Of The Year 2020 after a stunning comeback from depression and alcohol and drug issues to win the world title.

In February he sent Deontay Wilder to his first ever defeat to win the WBC belt.

As sensational as that is, Fury is ready to take another ‘giant step for mankind’ and head out into the galaxy.

Writing in his new book The Furious Method, the 32-year-old says: “It’s my dream to go to space as one of the first space tourists and I’m already focusing on this and making it happen.

“Don’t let anybody tell you that you can’t achieve your goals or dreams. You can.

“I see myself unstrapping myself from a comfy chair and floating through the cabin of a spaceship to stare through a large window in awe of the beautiful blue place we call home.”

Fury has long regarded Ali as his inspiration in the sport, from his skills in the ring and the way he conducted himself out of it.

And the Gypsy King is thankful for ‘The Greatest’ for proving that great things can be achieved with self-belief.

He adds: “Muhammad Ali once said: ‘Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It’s a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.’

“What a man Ali was, and what a thought that is. People are achieving their true goals all the time, every day. Who is to say that you can’t be one of them?

“Often it can be those close to us who make us doubt ourselves because they want to guide us to take the safe route, the well-travelled path through life.

“But for some of us that’s not what we’re after.”

It will be a battle to see who is undisputed heavyweight champ – providing AJ doesn’t vacate the WBO strap to get the fight on.

And speaking to the Wow Hydrate YouTube channel, Fury, 32, even went as far as to describe Joshua as ‘tailor-made’ for him.

He said: “The easiest opponent I think would be Anthony Joshua just because he’s tailor-made for me.

“If ever I could build a perfect opponent I’d be building him.”

And Joshua is keen to get the contracts signed, saying that the fight could help ‘lift the nation’ after a year of coronavirus hell.
