Young Tyson Fury Training
During his birth there were complications, the doctors didn’t think he would pull through. But when he did survive, his dad named him after the former World heavyweight World champ, Mike Tyson (for obvious reasons).
Although he was born and raised in Manchester, the Fury family were actual Irish Gypsy immigrants, originating from Belfast and Galway in Ireland.
When an eleven-year-old Tyson quit school, his father decided to take him to work, tarmacking roads, making him earn his first modest paycheque.
During these times, his dad would take him to the local boxing gym and train him. His dad, John was a Gypsy bare-knuckle prizefighter, so he was in good hands.
Fury Turning Pro
While everyone was getting ready for Christmas 2008, Fury taped his hands for his first professional fight against Bela Gyongyosi. Tyson won in the sixth by TKO and made $12,000. He also showcased his fast hands, great footwork and natural power.
Similar to Fury’s first fight, he dominated all of his next opponents, winning mostly by TKO. Although we don’t know the exact purse of these fights, it was approximately the same as his first fight.
Overall, this increased his ranking which eventually gave him a shot at the title, against the British champion.
