Fury fights for the WBC heavyweight title on Saturday night against Deontay Wilder at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

He has been out in America training, and spent four weeks in the legendary Big Bear camp.

Fury has been vocal about his battle with depression and addiction ahead of the fight, and said he wants to help others going through the same situation.

And his trainer, Ben Davison, has revealed that Fury gave the shoes off of his own feet to a ‘clearly unwell’ man while at a Starbucks.

More incredibly, Fury demanded that nobody take any pictures of him doing the good deed, as he didn’t want to do it for attention.

Speaking to Kugan Cassius of iFL TV, Davison explained how the situation paned out.

“We were going into the Starbucks that we sometimes go to to break the day up,” he explained.

“There was just a few of us, me, Shane, Hughie, and Isaac [members of Fury’s team].

“Nobody in there was bothering Tyson, it was a quiet day, so he wasn’t doing it to impress anyone or make anyone notice him.

“And a man came over to the window, and he was obviously a troubled man, but he obviously wasn’t well.

“We were talking and that, and Tyson spotted that he had no shoes, so he said ‘that man’s got no shoes on’, and the guy was looking to cross the road, he didn’t look too well.”

Davison revealed that what happened next shocked him and the rest of his team.

“Tyson’s walked out the shop, and before you know it he’s running over towards the man, I’m thinking ‘what’s going on here?’” he explained.

“Before you know it, Tyson’s taken his shoes off and given them to this man.

“I didn’t ask anything, one of the boys tried to pull a camera out and Tyson said ‘don’t you dare’.

“He said ‘you don’t do these things for other people to know about them’.

“I know a lot of stories like that about Tyson.”
