Tyson Fury invited to give speech to Man Utd squad after Deontay Wilder win

Heavyweight boxing hero Tyson Fury could be set to give a speech to the Manchester United squad following his victory over Deontay Wilder on Saturday.

Fury became a two-time heavyweight world champion after his win, and his story is an inspirational one after he came back from depression and drug abuse to get to where he is today.

Fury has also allegedly been contacted by Donald Trump and Pope Francis over potential meets following his win, and according to Metro United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is another person who is keen for The Gypsy King to speak to his team.

United are entering a key part of their season, with a top four finish within their sights as well as progression in the Europa League and FA Cup.

Fury- who is originally from the small town of Wythenshawe just outside Manchester- is a United fan, and has attended a number of games at Old Trafford in recent years.

He has also been invited as a guest of honour for March's derby match against Manchester City , and will appear at half-time to greet the crowd if he accepts the offer.

Fury has always been open about his struggles with mental health, and said last year: "I was on the verge of suicide. That's when I'd have quit. But I didn't quit on myself and I didn't quit on the world.
