Tyson is a remarkable guy. By its appearance. 206 cm height, 125 kg weight. But despite the huge parameters and some fat around the waist, he is fast in the ring and moves great. Opponents have a huge problem getting close to him. This was also the case with Saturday’s match with Whyt.
“It was the last curtain for the Gypsy King,” Fury said after the fight, referring to his nickname Gipsy King. “I spent a lot of time traveling. I’ve been gone a long time. I did everything I ever wanted to do. I will retire undefeated as the second heavyweight in history, after Rocky Marcian. I was invincible in this game, “he said on Saturday night after his victory.
Born without a chance
Why is his name Tyson? You guessed it, according to the bad man Mike Tyson. His name was given to him by his father John Fury, also a boxer, by the way, for two reasons. On the one hand, Mike Tyson was the world heavyweight champion at the time of Fury’s son’s birth. And second, Tyson Fury was born three months earlier than he weighed and weighed only 450 grams. The doctors didn’t give him much of a chance. And so Father John believed that his son would win his life. Like Mike Tyson in the ring.
No one wants to see a Gypsy doing well. I’m a gypsy and a bastard. I will always be a Gypsy, I will never change. I will always be fat and white. I’m a champion, but I’m still considered a bum.
And Tyson Fury fought him pretty well. At the age of 33, he has a decent line of success. 33 times he stood in the ring, 32 times he won, of which 23 × KO. One of the most famous matches was the duel with Vladimir Klitschko in 2015, which he defeated on points after 12 rounds. He won the titles of WBA, IBF, WBO and The Ring. He was preparing for that match with real stars. His sparring partners were already the famous kickboxers Rico Verhoeven and Benjamin Adegbuyi.
Tyson Fury is hugely popular, especially in Britain, but he’s definitely not a black and white guy. Rather controversial. He took cocaine, anabolics, sometimes talked a lot and dropped a lot of nonsense. He connected with homosexuals, the transgender, the Jews, and then wrapped it all around gossiping about God and Jesus Christ. When he was nominated for BBC Sports Personality of the Year in 2015, a strong wave rose and the protest petition had 140,000 signatures.
He also sometimes suggests madness about his opponents, but he can also praise them. “Dillian is a warrior and I believe he will be world champion,” Fury said as they hugged after the fight with Whyt. But of course he praises himself best. “But unfortunately he had to fight me tonight. “You are not playing with an average heavy weight, but with the best man on the planet,” he said.
All the children are Prince
Despite that generosity, you can’t say that Tyson Fury is not a man of some humility. “I’ve said a lot of things in the past, but none of them with the intention of hurting anyone. I apologize to everyone who was hurt, “he said, among other things.
It was interesting to watch the situation with his wife Paris during the evening. The attractive blonde ran after him into the ring right after the victory, they hugged and Tyson mentioned several times his debt to her. They met when she was 15 and he was 17. They started dating in 2006 and two years later they were married in St. Paul’s Catholic Church. Peter in Chains in Doncaster. Today they have six children together, three daughters and three sons, all named Prince. When Tyson was asked why, he said he was king and they were princes until he earned his rightful name. “
We have to stay with Tyson’s family for a while, because the Irish-English roots are important for understanding his personality. Both Tyson Fury and his wife Paris report to the special ethnic “Irish Nomads”. It is a nation of tens of thousands, part of which lives in Ireland (they were there thousands of years ago), England, but also America, like the Gypsies. They never had anything to do with them, but they were and are similarly perceived by those around them.
That is why Tyson calls himself the “Gypsy King”, which is why his affiliation with Catholic Ireland and Protestant England is mixed in. That’s why his family has so many children. He experienced racist invectives himself, so he sometimes indulges in others. “No one wants to see a Gypsy doing well,” he said some time ago. “I am a Gypsy and a bastard. I will always be a Gypsy, I will never change. I will always be fat and white. I’m a champion, but I’m still considered a wanderer. “
Now, why is the “white Gypsy” Tyson Fury so popular in Britain? Because it somehow connects it with its origins and contradictions. For the poorest, it is a symbol that even a “Gypsy” can succeed in the world and earn millions of dollars. Maybe with his fists. By the way, he has now made almost 33 of them with Whyt (almost three-quarters of a billion crowns).
As open as Tyson Fury is about his background, he speaks bluntly about his mental health. He admits that he suffers from bipolar disorder and is himself an ambassador for the mental health charity of the former British world champion Frank Bruno, The Frank Bruno Foundation.
For all this, the British beater of Irish origin is popular in Britain and that is why they are called “The People’s Champion” in the islands.
