Biography of Tyson Fury

Tyson Luke Fury is a British professional boxer. British boxer Tyson Fury is currently the WBC world heavyweight champion, having held the title since defeating Deontay Wilder in 2020 and The Ring magazine title from 2020 to August 2022.

As of August 2022, he is ranked as the world’s best active heavyweight pound-for-pound by ESPN and is considered the lineal heavyweight champion by many media outlets.

With his defeat of Wilder, he became the third heavyweight to hold The Ring title twice, after Floyd Patterson and Muhammad Ali, and the first to hold both titles simultaneously.

As an amateur, Tyson Fury won the ABA super-heavyweight title in 2008 before turning professional.

After winning the English heavyweight title twice, he became British and Commonwealth champion in 2011 by defeating the 14–0 Derek Chisora.

This success, along with his 24–0 record, set up a match with the long-reigning world champion Wladimir Klitschko in Germany, which Fury won by unanimous decision.

Britain’s Tyson Fury was stripped of his IBF heavyweight titles after losing to Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015.

He gave up the WBA, WBO, and IBO championships. The Ring stripped him of his last title in early 2018.

In January 2017, he was challenged for the WBC heavyweight title against Deontay Wilder but the fight was controversially scored as a draw.

Fury won the rematch by a technical knockout in the seventh round and went on to win the trilogy against Wilder.

Tyson Fury Biography

Early life

Amber and John Fury, both of Irish descent, gave birth to Fury on August 12, 1988, in the Manchester neighborhood of Wythenshawe.

Mike Tyson, the heavyweight world champion at the time, inspired his father, John, to give him the name Tyson.

Fury identifies passionately with his Irish background but struggles to obtain dual citizenship because his father’s birth in County Galway was not officially documented until the 1960s.

Tyson Fury was trained by his father John Fury until 2011 when he was jailed for gouging out the eye of another Traveller due to a long-standing feud.

Fury, who was just nine years old at the time, has continued to think about this incident.

Personal life

Fury met his wife Paris Mulroy when she was 15 and he was 17, and they married in 2008. Three sons (all called Prince) and three girls total the couple’s six children.

He gave his first child the name Prince in honor of his favorite British fighter, Prince Naseem. Paris suffered a miscarriage before Fury’s bout with Ustinov in 2014 and lost another child on the day of his fight against Seferi in 2018.
