Tyson Luke Fury (born 12 August 1988) is a British professional boxer who is a two-time heavyweight world champion. He has held the WBC, The Ring magazine, and lineal titles since defeating Deontay Wilder in February 2020, and he previously held the unified WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, IBO, The Ring magazine, and lineal titles by defeating long-reigning champion Wladimir Klitschko in 2015. With his defeat of Wilder, Fury became the third heavyweight, after Floyd Patterson and Muhammad Ali, to hold The Ring magazine title twice, and the first heavyweight in history to have held the WBA (Super), WBC, IBF, WBO, and The Ring magazine titles. As of February 2020, Fury is ranked as the world’s best active heavyweight by ESPN and the Transnational Boxing Rankings Board, and second by BoxRec, as well as the sixth-best active boxer, pound for pound, by the Transnational Boxing Rankings Board, and ninth by BoxRec.
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 materialise as Fury suffered from mental health issues leading to alcoholism, extreme weight gain, and recreational drug use; 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. Later in 2018, following more than two years of inactivity, Fury challenged for the WBC heavyweight title against Wilder. The fight was controversially scored as a draw, with many believing Fury won. Fury’s strong performance against Wilder (including recovering from a heavy knockdown in the final round) earned him Comeback of the Year from The Ring and numerous other awards.
Tyson Luke Fury was born on 12 August 1988 in the Wythenshawe area of Manchester, where he was raised by his Irish parents, John and Amber. He was born three months premature and weighed 1 pound (450 g). His father, John, named him Tyson after the then-undefeated undisputed heavyweight world champion Mike Tyson. 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 named him Tyson as he was a fighter and survived the premature birth.
