Did Franklin Graham Use Heavyweight Boxing Champion’s Family Loss To Promote Pro-Gun Legislation?

“I hope I die every day. And that’s a bad thing to say when I’ve got three children and a lovely wife, isn’t it? But I don’t want to live any more. And if I could take me own life—and I wasn’t a Christian—I’d take it in a second. I just hope someone kills me before I kill me self. I’ll have to spend eternity in hell,” Fury said of his experience with substance abuse during an interview in 2016.

“I stopped it all on the first of the month,” Fury continued, referring to his cocaine use. “I’m trying to forget about it all. I’m putting boxing behind me, the drinking, the drugs, just getting back in the church and right with God. Cause that’s all that matters with me.”

“I went down as a four hundred pound fat guy, but when I got up off the floor, after praying for like twenty minutes…I felt like the weight of the world was lifted off me shoulders,” the heavyweight boxing champ shared.

After beating former heavy weight boxing champion Deontay Wilde in 2021 during a rematch following their previous bout where Fury gained the title, Fury immediately gave thanks to his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Similarly, Fury posted, “God Bless You All, My Family and My Team. All Glory Be To My Lord and Savior Jesus Christ,” after beating his opponent Dillian Whyte earlier this April.
