Tyson and Paris have been together for over two decades. And Paris Fury has been the prime support for Tyson Fury’s boxing success. While Fury has now achieved it all in the sport, his wife revealed what she feels while her husband gets through vicious opponents in the ring.

In a chat with Talk Sport, Paris Fury said, “When Tyson used to fight at the very beginning, it was more of a novelty. Because Tyson never got punched. If you look at Tyson now, he still has a straight nose. For boxers, that’s pretty rare. And he has been um, as the years went by and he fought the higher opposition. Then he will get hit back, and that’s when it became horrible. It became not nice to watch.”

Paris Fury’s statement sounded similar to what WBC Interim heavyweight champion Dillian Whyte recently said about ‘The Gypsy King’. Despite being unbeaten, Fury has contracted some serious punishment in his fights from recent years against Otto Wallin and Deontay Wilder. He looked vulnerable, and that’s what concerned Paris Fury.

Well, Tyson Fury’s contemporaries have seen it as a chance to outpoint him. Following his thirty-first pro-win against Deontay Wilder, ‘The Gypsy King’ shall look for a long layoff. But on returning, he may have to defend the WBC belt against Dillian Whyte.
