Netflix film crews could descend on Morecambe from next week after Tyson Fury confirms they will be filming a 10-part documentary about his life.

Speaking live from his Morecambe home, the world heavyweight champion appeared on Good Morning Britain today (15 June).

Tyson confirmed that he has signed a contract with the streaming service for a “fly on the wall” documentary about his life.

Speaking to Richard Madeley and Susanna Reid, he said: “I have just signed [a contract for] a 10-part documentary with Netflix.

“It is a fly-on-the wall documentary which we will be start filming next week.

“That’s going to be fantastic as well and will keep me busy.”

As he currently resides in Morecambe, the production could see film crews descend on the coastal Lancashire town, where the dad-of-six trains and lives with his family.

Netflix declined to comment or provided further details about the series, so we will have to wait for more information about the documentary to emerge.

In the Good Morning Britain episode, Tyson also addressed rumours about his alleged return to boxing and also explained more about his upcoming ‘After Party Tour’.

After the Dillian Whyte fight earlier this year, Tyson vowed never to return to the ring again.

However, he has now confirmed he will fight again – but only for entertainment purposes.



He said: “I am going to do some exhibition matches so not ‘real fights’.

“This is not professional boxing this is pure entertainment nothing more nothing less.

“You aren’t there to win or lose, you’re there to put on a good show for fans.

“You can fight old timers, famous people, whoever you want.”

In the exhibition matches, Tyson said he is hoping to fight the likes of Mike Tyson, Lennox Lewis, and even Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson.

He said: “I did tell boxing manager Frank Warren to ‘show me the money’ if he wants me to come back on these shows.”

“As far as I am concerned I am happily retired and contented with my career.”

His upcoming After Party Tour, which kicks off this week, is said to be a meet and greet with a party atmosphere.

Here, fans will get the chance to ask the champ some question.

Tyson said: “This tour is going to be an excellent opportunity to hear my story and ask questions.

“It’s an after party tour but it’s also a way for me to communicate my mental health story to people so that they might be helped also.

“Maybe there will be someone in the crowd who is thinking about suicide or is in a really dark place.”
