Sports stars don’t always make life easy for themselves. A lot of them find and create drama everywhere they go. Sometimes it’s unavoidable but quite often it’s unnecessary. Many of these star athletes crave attention or may simply have something missing between their ears.
So let’s look at some elite sports athletes who find endless drama everywhere. Some of these names will instantly be familiar because they are so famous. In these situations, drama is almost inescapable. However, others constantly cause trouble that arguably shouldn’t be happening. Check out the list below via Bleacher Report.
25. Tyson Fury
Heavyweight champion Fury is one of the greatest-ever in his weight class. He moves like a middleweight despite his massive size and has superb technical boxing skills. But he’s also a divisive personality. In 2015, he infamously made comments about gay people and women that drew a lot of criticism. That’s a major reason why he’s never won the prestigious BBC Sports Personality of the Year award.
Then, he failed drug tests and went on one of the most dramatic downward spirals ever. The drama dial turned when he announced his comeback and embarked on a trilogy against Deontay Wilder. These fights were epic in every way. Ultimately, Fury emerged victorious in two of the three fights. But he created more controversy by thanking Irish drug lord Daniel Kinahan for helping to set up a clash with his fellow Brit Anthony Joshua (via The Times).
