'The Gypsy King' was born on 12th August 1988. He grew up in the Wythenshawe area of Manchester, England. From an early age, he showed an aptitude for boxing. Hailing from an Irish traveling family, and a long bloodline of fighters, some would say Tyson choosing the 'sweet science' as his profession was inevitable. He began boxing at the age of ten, thriving under the guidance of his father. With John Fury championing him, Tyson did quite well in his amateur career. He became the EU Junior Champion in May 2007 and ABA national champion in 2008, before turning professional at the age of 20.

Tyson Fury’s career timeline

Fury made his professional debut in December 2008. He took on Bela Gyongyosi in his first outing as a professional. The preliminary card bout ended with Fury dropping his Hungarian opponent in the first round with a lethal combination to the head and the body.

After winning  English, British, and Commonwealth titles, Tyson Fury, with his rangy and unorthodox fighting style, reached the top of the heavyweight division in 2015 after defeating the 11-year unbeaten Ukrainian boxer Wladimir Klitschko to become the unified world heavyweight champion. However following his win over Klitschko, he struggled with depression forcing him to take a hiatus of three years.

He came back in action in 2018, notching up easy wins against Sefer Seferi and Francesco Pianeta. In the same year, he also drew a fight for the first time against Deontay Wilder. However, his stupefying performance earned him a rematch. He won the WBC title after having bulldozed through Deontay Wilder in 2020. This saw him become a two-time world heavyweight champion.

Moreover, Fury added another spectacular victory to his resume by defeating Wilder in their highly anticipated trilogy fight in October 2021. After 10 rounds of war, 'The Gypsy King' finally put his rivalry with the 'Bronze Bomber' to rest via T/KO in the 11th round.

After beating Wilder, Fury demolished longtime WBC mandatory challenger Dillian Whyte on April 23, 2022. And in December, he defended his WBC heavyweight title against Derek Chisora in a trilogy showdown.

'The Gypsy King' has amassed an astonishing record of 24 wins by T/KO in 34 professional fights.

Then came the mega clash between Tyson Fury and Francis Ngannou. This highly anticipated bout came months after fans and followers learned of the Cameroonian-American mixed martial artist's departure from UFC.

In a shocking display, Tyson was barely able to defeat Francis Ngannou as the former was even made to taste the canvas by the MMA sensation. The crossover boxing bout made a huge dent in Fury's reputation, even though he secured a split-decision victory.

He is currently set to face Oleksandr Usyk for an undisputed heavyweight fight.

 Tyson Fury’s charity and foundation

Philanthropy comes to Tyson Fury as naturally as a jab or a hook. He is well known to open up his heart and wallet to the less fortunate and in need. Following his first fight against Deontay Wilder, Fury claimed to have donated his entire fight purse to charitable organizations in the UK. This was because he wanted to direct the finances toward the construction of homes for alcohol and drug addicts.

In another incident in 2022, after fight negotiations with Anthony Joshua collapsed, Fury’s promoter Frank Warren had to pay up after losing a bet against the ’Gypsy King’. Fury was convinced that Joshua wouldn’t sign the dotted line and ended up staking £10,000. Eventually, he ended up donating his winnings from the bet to a charity called DEBRA which looks after people suffering from Epidermolysis Bullosa - a painful genetic skin blister condition.

Tyson Fury also has his foundation called the Tyson Fury Foundation.

This property also had lavish decorations which included gold curtains, and a gold-framed Versace mirror.
