Tyson Fury releasing Sweet Caroline single for mental health charity | UK News
Tyson Fury is releasing a sweet Caroline version of Neil Diamond to a mental health charity.
His fans often sing the song before he fights and the world heavyweight champion is best known for singing classics like American Pie and Walking in Memphis in the ring.
The boxer is now in the studio and the track will be released on November 11, three weeks before his bout with fellow Briton Derek Chisora in London.
All proceeds will go to Talk Club, a men’s mental health charity that offers talk groups, sports groups and other therapies.
Before that, the 34-year-old was candid about his struggles and thoughts of suicide.
“Boxing is a huge platform for me to spread the word about mental health and I do it to the best of my ability,” Anger.
“I’ve been very vocal about my mental health struggles, especially since my return.
“It’s been widely printed about my ups and downs, so I’ve done my best to keep talking about it as much as I can and keep trying to smash the stigma.”
Fury says he also expects his version of Sweet Caroline to be a success as England fans head towards the World Cup in Qatar, with the tournament starting next month.
The song was also popular with football fans and was sung by supporters following the Lionesses’ Euro 2022 victory.
There’s also a special dance remix in the works, according to record label bosses.
It’s also not the first time Fury has been in the studio – he recorded a duet with Robbie Williams for the star’s 2019 Christmas album.
Fury’s next match is at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on December 3 when he meets Chisora for the third time.
