Tyson Fury Early Life
Fury was born in the beautiful place called Wythenshawe, in Manchester, England in the year of 1988 August. His parents were Irish named John and Amber. He was a premature baby.
When he was born doctors told his parents that there was a very low chance that he would survive, but later on it was totally proved wrong and he survived the obstacle so well like a phoenix.
When Tyson thinks about those words which doctors told to his parents he says that “the doctors told them that there was not much chance of living. His parents had lost 2 daughters the same way who was been born prematurely.
His father chose the name Tyson as he believed his baby was a fighter and survived his condition. During the time of Tyson’s birth, Mike Tyson was the undefeated heavyweight champion of the whole world.
And Fury’s mother had 14 pregnancies with only 4 among them surviving one among them was Tyson. When Tyson was 9 his mom got pregnant and gave birth to a girl child who unfortunately died after few weeks of being born.
This experience depressed and changed Tyson to a huge extend. The only way through which he threw his depression out was through boxing. His father was his trainer and trained him till 2011 when he went to jail. Exactly at the age of 11, Tyson left his school and accompanied his father and brothers as the laborers tarmacking roads.
Tyson Fury Boxing Career
Tyson was denied to fight for Ireland during the Olympic Games but was later allowed to fight for Ireland and also Great Britain after finding his lineage to Belfast. In 2008 his life got a great twist, which he won the ABA championship as still an amateur.
In December 2008 he professionally made his boxing debut by defeating Bela Gyongyosi. Again in November 2009, he defeated John McDermott which gave him the title “English Heavyweight” champion.
In June 2010 Fury defeated John McDermott again and won the same title again. In July 2011 he won the title of British and Commonwealth Heavyweight champion by defeating Dereck Chisora.
In 2012 also Fury won the title of Irish heavyweight champion which was from Martin Rogan, the title of WBO inter-continental heavyweight champion from Vinny Maddalone, and also the title of European and WBO international heavyweight title from Dereck Chisora in 2014.
One of the famous fights of Tyson is the Klitschko fight, which happened in 2015 in which he fought against Wladimir Klitschko which had the title of world heavyweight for the WBA, IBF, WBO, IBO, The Ring Heavyweight and the lineal.
This match took place on November 28, 2015, in Dusseldorf, Germany. This match was witnessed by around 55000 people, where majority of the people supported Klitschko in a ratio of 4:1.
The match continued to a great length, when after the 12th round Tyson was named as the unanimous winner. This win brought Fury’s record to the extent of 25-0 with 18 knockouts. And there was a rematch too between Fury and Klitschko which was announced on April 2016.
But unfortunately the fight was postponed as Fury gained weight which reached to 100 pounds, which gave out a reason as “medically unfit” for the fight. And again this fight was postponed the second time after Tyson failed a drug test for cocaine.
This caused Fury to fall into a deep depression, which he stated in an interview with rolling stone, in which he claims that “he is going through a lot of personal demons, to which he is trying to shake it off” and he also states that “all the money in the world, fame and glory means nothing if you are not happy.”
After all these traumas and after vacating his world titles he returned to the ring in June 2018 in which he won against Sefer Seferi. In august 2018 he also defeated Francesco Pianeta. Tyson also has faced Deontay Wilder for the first time in December 2018.
