‘He is the greatest fighter alive today’ Daily Express
He has a punch that could knock over a rhino and he can dance and weave like no one since the great Muhammad Ali. The Fury King became the first man in a decade to defeat Wladimir Klitschko, one of the greatest heavyweight fighters of all time. Against all odds, Fury not only beat Klitschko, but he also dominated him.
Tyson’s success has not come easily, but he has fought the terrible battles of his personal life as bravely as those in the ring. In this extraordinary biography you will read how he overcame addiction to cocaine and alcohol and lost a staggering eight stone in weight to make his comeback. His bravery in talking about his mental health problems is an inspiration to many.
He is one of only four children to survive childbirth after his mother had 14 pregnancies, but only four were successful. Fury was born three month before his due date and weighed only 1 pound when he was born. And his life chances were close to practical nil.
Tyson Fury dropped out of his school when he was 11 and began tarmacking roads with his father and brothers. Fury started boxing at the age of ten. Because his father was a professional boxer, Fury had no trouble getting the necessary training.
Today, he is a two-time world heavyweight champion, having held the WBC and The Ring magazine titles since defeating Deontay Wilder in 2020; previously he held the unified WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, IBO, and The Ring titles after defeating 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 is widely considered by media outlets to be the lineal heavyweight champion.
