fight record and stats
Tyson Fury is a professional boxer currently competing in the Heavyweight division and is one of the best pound-for-pound fighters in the world. Known as 'The Gypsy King,' he is known for his speed and skilful ringcraft as well as his natural charisma and ability to sell a fight which has earned him praise and the Ring Magazine title.
Born on the 12th August 1988 in Wythenshawe, Manchester to Irish parents with a boxing tradition, Fury turned professional in 2008, opting famously not to wait for the 2012 Olympics as an amateur.
After a flawless spell at a domestic level, Fury got his shot at the WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, IBO, Lineal and The Ring heavyweight titles in 2015 against Wladimir Klitschko. The fight was staged at the ESPRIT Arena in Düsseldorf, Germany and Tyson won the fight after a 12 round decision.
Fury later relinquished his titles after opening up about mental health issues - but made a famous comeback to earn two title shots against Deontay Wilder, the first ending in a controversial draw but the second was won convincingly against the odds, making him a two-time champion.
The Englishman continues to wait patiently for his shot at Eddie Hearn’s fighter Anthony Joshua, who currently possesses the WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO belts to which Fury once held.
