About our Tyson Fury news

Latest news and updates on Tyson Fury, an English two-time world heavyweight boxing champion, who has held the WBC title since 2020.

Tyson Fury, also known as the Gypsy King, first became world champion in 2015 when he beat the reigning champ Vladimir Klitschko by unanimous decision. Fury's heavyweight reign was short-lived after he was stripped of his IBF belt just ten days after the Klitschko fight, and a year later he vacated the remaining WBA, WBO and IBO titles.

In 2018 after two years of inactivity and battling various mental health issues, Tyson Fury made his return to boxing when he challenged American Deontay Wilder for the WBC heavyweight title. The two went on to have a trilogy of fights with Fury ultimately coming out on top and regaining the WBC belt in 2020.

Tyson Fury recently faced off against Francis Ngannou in a highly anticipated boxing match. The fight took place on October 29, 2023, and resulted in a split decision victory for Tyson Fury. The bout was marked by some dramatic moments, particularly in the third round when Ngannou, making his professional boxing debut, managed to knock down Fury with a powerful counter-left hook. This moment stunned the audience, as Ngannou, a former UFC heavyweight champion, was not expected to pose such a significant challenge to Fury, the WBC heavyweight champion.

Despite this early setback, Fury was able to regain control of the match. As the fight progressed, Ngannou began to show signs of fatigue, which allowed Fury to increase his offensive and apply more pressure. The final scorecards reflected the close nature of the match, with two judges scoring in favor of Fury (96-93 and 95-94) and one in favor of Ngannou (95-94).

This victory maintained Fury's undefeated record, now standing at 34-0-1 with 24 knockouts. The match was held in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, and was part of an event where every other fight ended in a knockout or TKO, making Fury’s match the only one that went the full distance.
