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 made his professional debut at the age of 20 on 6 December 2008 in Nottingham, on the undercard of Carl Froch vs. Jean Pascal against Hungarian fighter Bela Gyongyosi (3–9–2), who Fury defeated via TKO in the first round with a combination to head and body.

Fury was given a rousing reception by the crowd as he made his way to the ring in an attire of red and white, paying homage to Saint George’s Day to the backdrop of “Juicy” by The Notorious B.I.G. and “Sex on Fire” by Kings of Leon, in contrast to the boos received by his opponent Whyte during his own ring-walk.
Whyte unexpectedly boxed the first round in the southpaw stance, which was unusual for the primarily orthodox fighter.
After a cautious first three minutes, Fury returned the favour at the start of the second round by switching between the southpaw and orthodox stances.
Boxing legend Tyson Fury recently revealed that he had retired from the sport, but could the ‘Gypsy King’ be making his way to a different version of the sweet science, namely Bare Knuckle boxing.
We’ve seen a number of MMA fighters make the transition to the bare-knuckle arena, including former UFC fighter Paige VanZant and Bellator MMA competitor Michael ‘Venom’ Page, and the President of BKFC has said that the ‘Gypsy King’ is “absolutely” on his radar.
He said: “I think it [signing Tyson Fury] is definitely possible, if they take us seriously because we are the new kid on the block, they might not listen to us. If they listen to us, then absolutely I think we can get a deal done.
“He absolutely is on our radar; he would take this sport to a whole different level. You just saw it at Wembley Stadium with almost 100,000 people in there.
