‘There was substance abuse I wasn’t aware of. I found out about it in the papers. I had all that to deal with.

Speaking in his book The Furious Method, Tyson explained how he turned his life around after epiphany on Halloween night, admitting: ‘My mental health and marriage were both hanging by a thread.’

He wrote: ‘Within a month of being crowned world heavyweight champ I was an emotional wreck, on my way to a heart attack thanks to Class A drugs, junk food and alcohol.

‘I had my epiphany in a pub on Halloween night in 2017, hopelessly overweight and humiliated, wearing a badly fitting skeleton outfit that was skin-tight and emphasised my full 28st.

‘Although I’d started training again, I was still drinking and going on benders and making life a misery for my wife, my children and those closest to me.

‘Looking around the pub at people half my age I felt like a disgrace and I knew things had to change.’

Paris and Tyson documented some of the evening for their fans via their Instagram stories.

In one video, captioned ‘wife night out @parisfury1’, the professional boxer spoke to his 5.3million followers as he filmed the couple walking down the stairs. 

‘So guys I’m just out with the wife,’ he said, before Paris, dressed in an elegant white dress, interjected with: ‘Oh the wife’, while smirking up at him.

 The two-time world heavyweight champion continued: ‘It’s date night Tuesday, I’ve done two sessions of training today so I’m absolutely wore up – but we’ve got to get it in haven’t we Paris?’

In agreement, the mother-of-six chimed: ‘Yeah you know, got to keep the flame burning.’
