One of the most charismatic and colourful characters in all of British sport, there is simply no-one else quite like Tyson Fury.

He's won almost every belt in existence, transcending the sport of boxing like few others have to become one of the most recognisable figures in the world.

Fury vs Wilder 3: It's time to settle this!

After their first two epic battles, Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder finally settle their feud once and for all exclusively live on BT Sport Box Office on Saturday 9 October. Book your seat for this unmissable trilogy war now.

Having fought well-publicised battles against depression, substance misuse and obesity, Fury now reigns as a proud WBC heavyweight champion and continues to write history in some of the biggest fights around.

This autumn, Fury will face familiar foe Deontay Wilder in a trilogy fight settling their long-running feud before turning his attention to countryman Anthony Joshua in a hotly-anticipated scrap for undisputed status.

Tyson Fury: Amateur career

Fury was a gifted amateur heavyweight, racking up an impressive 32-4 record while representing both Ireland and England in international tournaments.

He won bronze at the 2006 AIBA Youth Boxing World Championships for the green, white and gold of Ireland but won gold at the 2007 EU Junior Championship representing England.

He also fought domestic rival David Price in the 2006 English Amateur Senior National Championships, losing to the Liverpudlian in the finalof the tournament.

Price would go on to represent Great Britain at the 2008 Olympic Games at Fury's expense, convincing Fury to turn pro later that year. 

Tyson Fury: Record

Fury is undefeated in 31 professional fights with his controversial 2018 draw against Wilder the only blemish on an otherwise perfect record.

He made his debut with a first round knockout of Bela Gyongyosi in 2008 and won the English title against John McDermott in his 10th fight.

Fury boasts a pair of victories over heavyweight legend Dereck Chisora and a stoppage triumph over Christian Hammer among his most notable wins.

But his 2015 coming-of-age victory over Wladimir Klitschko in Dusseldorf is widely regarded as one of the finest of his career as the Gypsy King ended Dr Steelhammer's 10-year dominance of the heavyweight division to secure the WBA, IBF, WBO and The Ring titles on the scorecards.

Fury also exacted revenge on Deontay Wilder after being denied the victory by some questionable scoring in 2018 when he stopped the Bronze Bomber in emphatic fashion in February 2020.

The two will now settle their difference once and for all in a thrilling trilogy showdown this summer.

What is Tyson Fury's nickname?

The Charismatic Brit had a few different monikers over the course of his career before coronating himself "The Gypsy King", in reference to his standing among the Traveller community from which he comes.

Tyson Fury: Knockouts

Fury is often regarded more a boxer than a puncher but the Manchester man is certainly heavy-handed when he needs to be.

Only nine of his 30 wins have gone the distance with Fury stopping 21 contests by knockout across his career - including a crushing win over Wilder last time out.

Tyson Fury: Height

Fury is 6ft 9in (206cm).

Tyson Fury: Reach

Fury has a reach of 85in (216cm).

Tyson Fury: Trainer

Fury has worked under a number of different coaches throughout his career, beginning his journey through the prizefighter ranks under the tutelage of uncle, Peter Fury.

Peter masterminded Fury's win over Klitschko in 2015 but on Tyson's return from a lengthy layoff in 2018, he linked up with young coach Ben Davison.

Davison helped Fury shed a colossal amount of weight while guiding him through a pair of comeback fights and into the first meeting with Deontay Wilder.

The pair parted ways amicably ahead of the second Wilder rematch with Fury instead teaming up with Andy Lee and Kronk gym disciple Sugarhill Steward, nephew of legendary trainer Emanuel Steward.

Tyson Fury: Next fight and future opponents

Fury had been set for a mouthwatering all-British undisputed heavyweight showdown against Anthony Joshua this summer before the fight fell apart in dramatic fashion in late Spring.

The collapse happened after a US judge ruled Fury had a legal obligation to grant Deontay Wilder a third fight following the rematch between the two men last February.

That trilogy fight, taking place on October 9 exclusively live on BT Sport Box Office, took on a different meaning in the aftermath of Anthony Joshua's defeat to Oleksandr Usyk in late September.

Fury must first concentrate on retaining his WBC belt but what happens over the next 12 months is now anyone's guess after the Ukrainain snatched AJ's three world titles in a masterful performance.

What is clear is that having once looked a certainty, Tyson Fury vs Anthony Joshua now looks far less likely to happen any time soon.

Tyson Fury's last fight

The Gyspy King avenged his 2018 controversial draw against Deontay Wilder in an emphatic knockout victory over the Bronze Bomber last time out.

Dropping the former WBC champion three times during a bruising performance, Fury finally took home the coveted green-and-gold belt when Wilder's corner threw the towel in during the seventh round at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas in February 2020.
