Tyson Luke Fury was born on August 12, 1988 in the Wythenshawe district of Manchester. He grew up in a house in Styal with his Irish parents, Amber and John Fury. Fury came into the world three months early and weighed just 1 pound (450g). His father, John, named him Tyson after then-world heavyweight champion Mike Tyson. John said: “Doctors told me he didn’t have a good chance of living. I had lost two babies born too early in the same way. He chose Tyson because he was a fighter and survived being born early.
Fury comes from Irish Travelers. His father was born in Tuam, where his grandfather was also born. The name “Fury” comes from the Gaelic word “Fiodhabhra”, which is where the name “Fury” comes from. Her mother was born in Belfast and her grandmother is from County Tipperary. Although Fury is very proud of his Irish roots, he struggled to obtain dual citizenship because his father’s birth in County Galway in the 1960s was not civilly registered. At the time Irish Travelers only registered births with the Church and not with the State. After dethroning Wladimir Klitschko, Fury said, “Becoming the heavyweight champion of the world isn’t as tough a fight as proving I’m Irish.”
When he was 11, Fury left school and went to work with his father and three brothers paving roads. His mother Amber gave birth to 14 children, but only four of them lived to adulthood. Ramona was born in December 1997, but she only lived a few days. Fury, who was only nine years old at the time, will never forget him. Fury started boxing when he was 10 years old. His father trained him until 2011, when John went to jail for gouging out another traveler’s eye over a long-running feud. Hughie Fury, Fury’s uncle, trained him until his death in 2014. After that, Hughie’s other uncle Peter Fury trained him for his fight against Wladimir Klitschko. Peter Fury was also a boxer and was jailed for 10 years in 1995. He set up a ring to sell amphetamines in the North West of England and continued to run the business while incarcerated. Tyson Fury has never been in trouble with the law on his own.
Boxing has been part of the Fury family for a long time. In the 1980s, Fury’s father competed as “Gypsy” John Fury, first as an unlicensed boxer who fought without gloves, then as a professional boxer. John’s pro record was 8–4–1. One of the fights he lost was against Henry Akinwande, who would go on to win the WBO world heavyweight title. Tommy, Tyson’s half-brother, made his professional boxing debut on December 22, 2018, under the guidance of two-weight world champion Ricky Hatton. Fury is also linked to several other professional boxers, including heavyweights Hughie Fury and Nathan Gorman, former WBO world middleweight champion Andy Lee and light heavyweight contender Hosea Burton. Some of Fury’s distant relatives are bare-knuckle boxers Uriah Burton and Bartley Gorman, both dubbed “King of the Gypsies”. This is how Fury got his nickname “Gypsy King”. He also called himself “The Furious One” and “2 Fast” Fury.

However, he was unable to represent Great Britain at the 2008 Olympics as each country can only send one boxer per weight class, and David Price was chosen instead. The price increased due to the amateur program at the Olympics. Fury also tried to qualify for Ireland but failed. In 2011, Fury said, “I should have gone to the 2008 Olympics and won a gold medal for Ireland, but I didn’t have the chance.” He also had to drop out of the Irish national championships because officials at then Irish amateur heavyweight champion’s club Holy Trinity Boxing Club in West Belfast said he was ineligible as he was not eligible. was not born in Ireland.

Fury was a 1–6 favorite heading into the fight, but he did not fare well, and the referee’s 98–92 decision was criticized as a “travesty”.
