Tyson Fury is certainly one of a kind. The British boxing goliath holds an unprecedented track record. It is highly unlikely for anyone ever to come close to his greatness. The heavyweight finds himself in a safe position at the top of game.
The man who everyone in the boxing circuit regards as the ‘Gypsy King’ was born on the 12th of August in 1988. Tyson was born 3 months before schedule, coming in at a mere 1lb. His chances of survival were awfully low.
However, he survived, and how. His father named him after the legendary Mike Tyson. The Englishman followed in his American namesake and father’s footsteps into the boxing ring.
Tyson Fury: Record
Fury made his skilled debut in December 2008. He took on Bela Gyongyosi in his first outing as a professional. The preliminary card bout ended with Fury dropping his Hungarian opponent in the first round with a lethal combination to the head and the body.
In 2018, he drew a fight for the first time. However, his stupefying performance earned him a rematch. He won the WBC title after having bulldozed through Deontay Wilder in 2020. This saw him become a two-time world heavyweight champion.
As of 2021, Fury has earned an astonishing record of 21 wins by TKO in 31 fights. Now, Fury will clash in a highly anticipated trilogy fight against Wilder on October 9, 2021, at the T-Mobile Arena in Paradise, Nevada, United States.
Tyson Fury: Net Worth 2021
Money has never been at the top of Fury’s mind. However, no one in their right mind will turn incoming big bucks down. According to media sources, Fury’s net worth is estimated to be $30 million in 2021.
This is expected to rise with his upcoming trilogy against Deontay Wilder. What’s interesting is that ahead of his comeback in 2018, his balance was significantly lower.

Tyson Fury: Foundations and Charity
Philanthropy comes to Tyson Fury as naturally as a jab or a hook. He is well known to open up his heart and wallet to the less fortunate and in need. Following his first fight against Deontay Wilder, Fury donated his entire fight purse to a charitable organization. This was because he wanted to direct the finances towards the construction of homes for alcohol and drug addicts.
Fury realized he should help people in need after his promotional tour in Los Angeles ahead of his first fight against Wilder. He also has his own foundation called the Tyson Fury Foundation.
