Only 28 year-old Tyson Luke Fury was born and raised in Wythenshawe, Manchester, England.
He has held the Ring magazine with WBO/WBA/IBF/IBO heavyweight titles after defeating long-reigning world champion Wladimir Klitschko in 2015 with the huge victory he also awarded as 2015 Fighter of the Year and Upset of the Year awards by The Ring. He hasn’t fought since his win over Klitscho.
He was stripped of IBF title after unable to make the mandatory defense of his IBF title against challenger Vyachelev Glazkov due to agreeing rematch with Klitscho but never happened because of Fury’s personal problem. Fury vacated all world titles after the first retirement but has announced that he will come back in boxing before he posted another retirement and latest retirement to his instagram account. He retired with an unblemished record of 25 wins with 18 Knockouts.
This should be an interesting matchup, hope they make this happen.

In this fight Fury moves like a lower weight boxer, he was showing off his head movement and mobility which you won’t normally see in majority of heavy weight boxers now a days.

It’s amazing how a 6’9 guy over 250 Ibs can move around quickly like a middle weight.
Fury’s mobility was the winning factor in this fight; his head movements and the switching from Orthodox to Southpaw were really brilliant and fun to watch.
