Back in 2015, Fury won the heavyweight titles against Wladimir Klitschko. Subsequently, he left boxing and remained away from the ring for almost three years.

Putting his boxing stint back on track, Fury made it to the pinnacle with constant wins. When he earned a fight against Deontay Wilder in 2018, many expected ‘The Bronze Bomber’ to knock him out in the early rounds of the fight. But to everyone’s surprise, the fight went the distance, resulting in a draw.

Fury also survived Wilder’s vicious knockdown in round 12 and regained a vertical base inside the count of 10. More than any boxing skill, he employed his mental toughness to get the desired results.
