Outspoken and divisive but without doubt one of the greatest boxers of his era, few can match what Tyson Fury has achieved in the ring.

With a host of titles to his name since his emergence in the sport and an undefeated record that stretches back to his debut in 2008, the successes speak for themselves.

Fury is the current WBC heavyweight champion and looks as powerful as ever in his 30s, despite his battles with depression, substance misuse and obesity, showcasing his abilities once more with a 10th-round TKO in his trilogy fight against Derek Chisora in December.

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 34 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 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 to win the WBC and vacant Ring magazine belts.

Fury then went on to end the trilogy in similarly dramatic fashion, battling back from two knockdowns to stop Wilder.

He defended his belts for the first time on British soil when he took on domestic rival Dillian Whyte on St George's Day at Wembley, winning by TKO, before repeating the feat against Chisora at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, albeit having relinquished his Ring magazine belt prior to the fight. 

How old is Tyson Fury?

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 31 wins have gone the distance with Fury stopping 23 contests by knockout across his career - including a pair of crushing knockout wins over Deontay Wilder and his most recent victory over Dillian Whyte.

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

After his win over Chisora, Fury went face-to-face in the ring with WBA, WBO and IBF champion Oleksandr Usyk, and it seems reasonably likely the two men will throw down at some point in 2023, with the first unification of the heavyweight division on the line since 1999.

Anthony Joshua hasn't boxed since last year - when he lost to Usyk - but after talks between Joshua and Fury fell through earlier this year, Fury has expressed hope that the two biggest names in British boxing can go toe-to-toe at some point. 

Fury has also previously said that he sees Joe Joyce being one of three fights in his sights next year, with the 37-year-old ringside and then involved in the Joshua-Usyk square-up.

A fourth fight against Deontay Wilder after Fury won the last two, with the first ending in a controversial draw. 

Wilder faces Andy Ruiz Jr to become the WBC mandatory challenger and Fury has said that if the Usyk fight doesn't happen in February, he will expect Wilder (or Ruiz Jr) to fight at Wembley in April. 

Daniel Dubois could also be a possible opponent as he continues his revival under Shane McGuigan, while Otto Wallin, Filip Hrgovic, Zhang Zhilei and Frank Sanchez are other options. 

Tyson Fury's last fight

The Gypsy King triumphed was dominant yet again as he stopped Chisora in the 10th round of their world-title fight in December.
