The sportsman will get up close and personal with fans at Birmingham's ICC as he reminisces about his time in the ring.

The 'Greatest Showman' event, organised by Wolverhampton-based Showfighter UK, will recreate the magic of the circus at the themed show.

Andy Sahota, director of Showfighter UK, said “It’s with great honour that we are able to bring back such an extraordinary character back to the Midlands.

"Tyson Fury is without a doubt one of the most inspirational boxers of this generation, he’s really down to earth and an honest guy who tells you exactly how it is. Join us for a beautifully evening, themed around, 'The Greatest Showman’.

"A night of first class carnival entertainment. We’ll even see about Tyson performing a number or two."

Hosted by sports presenter Gabriella Partington Shelby, Fury will mingle with guests on Saturday as he is quizzed on stage by interviewer Michelle Joy Phelps.

He will reveal the challenges he faced with mental health and drug misuse, which led to his boxing license being stripped.

The 30-year-old will also delve into his December 2017 fight against Deontay Wilder for the world heavyweight title.

There will also be a mix of entertainment, red carpet reception, memorabilia auction and dinner.

Tickets, which start at £55, are available at
