After winning the English heavyweight title twice, he became the British and Commonwealth champion in 2011 by defeating the 14–0 Derek Chisora. He then won the Irish and WBO Inter-Continental titles, before defeating Chisora again in a 2014 rematch for the European and WBO International heavyweight titles. This success, along with his 24–0 record, set up a match with the long-reigning world champion Klitschko in Germany, which Fury won by unanimous decision.
Fury was stripped of his IBF title 10 days after the Klitschko bout as he was unable to grant a fight with the IBF’s mandatory challenger, Vyacheslav Glazkov, due to a rematch clause in his contract with Klitschko.
The rematch did not materialize as Fury suffered from mental health issues leading to alcoholism, recreational drug use and extreme weight gain. He was charged with anti-doping violations. In 2016, he vacated the WBA, WBO, and IBO titles; The Ring stripped him of his last remaining title in early 2018. Read

Tyson Luke Fury was born on 12 August 1988 in the Wythenshawe area of Manchester to Irish parents Amber and John Fury, and was raised in a house in Styal. Fury was born three months premature and weighed 1 pound (450 g).
His father, John, named him Tyson after Mike Tyson, who was heavyweight world champion at the time. John said: “The doctors told me there was not much chance of him living. I had lost two daughters in the same way who had been born prematurely.” He decided on Tyson as he was a fighter and survived the premature birth.
Fury is of Irish Traveller descent. His paternal grandfather was from Tuam, which is also the birthplace of his father. The Furys are ultimately of Gaelic origin, deriving their present surname from Ó Fiodhabhra. Fury’s maternal grandmother is from County Tipperary and his mother was born in Belfast.
Despite strongly identifying with his Irish heritage, Fury has had problems in gaining dual citizenship because his father’s birth in County Galway was not recorded civilly in the 1960s, as Irish Travellers at the time only recorded births through baptism with the church rather than officially with the state.
Fury left school when he was 11, and joined his father and three brothers tarmacking roads. His mother Amber had 14 pregnancies in total, but only four of the children survived. A daughter, Ramona, was born in December 1997 but died within days. This experience has stayed with Fury, who was just nine years old at the time. Fury began boxing at the age of 10.
His father acted as his trainer until 2011, when his father was jailed for gouging out the eye of another Traveller due to a long-standing feud; Fury’s uncle Hughie Fury trained him up until he passed away in 2014 and then his other Uncle Peter Fury , he trained Tyson in preparation and for his fight with Wladimir Klitschko. Peter Fury was previously jailed for 10 years, the 47-year-old trainer once built an extensive illegal empire at the heart of the gangland drugs scene in England and also ran a drug empire from behind bars. Fury himself has not had trouble with the law.
The Fury family has a long history in boxin Fury’s father competed in the 1980s as “Gypsy” John Fury, initially as a bare-knuckle and unlicensed boxer, and then as a professional boxer.
John had a professional record of 8–4–1, with one of his losses being to future WBO heavyweight world champion Henry Akinwande. Tyson’s half-brother Tommy made his professional debut on 22 December 2018 under the tutelage of two-weight world champion Ricky Hatton, and he starred in the 2019 series of Love Island.
Fury is also a cousin of several professional boxers, including heavyweights Hughie Fury and Nathan Gorman, retired WBO middleweight world champion Andy Lee and light heavyweight contender Hosea Burton.
Fury’s distant relatives include the bare-knuckle boxers Uriah Burton and Bartley Gorman, both considered “King of the Gypsies”, hence Fury’s own nickname of “Gypsy King”. He has also styled himself as “The Furious One” and “2 Fast” Fury.
