Tyson Fury record: fights, knockouts, knockout percentage, boxing stats for The Gypsy King

0

Tyson Fury’s insistence that he be retired took a step closer to becoming reality after the Mancunian giant vacated his Ring heavyweight title.

He first got the bracelet by beating Wladimir Klitschko in 2015 and then won it again by knocking out Deontay Wilder in 2020.

In between, Fury extended an unbeaten record which he further improved with a second victory over Wilder and another early finish against Dillian Whyte.

With the prospect of the 34-year-old leaving the sport with an unblemished record, The Sporting News takes a look at how he did it.

What is Tyson Fury’s boxing record?

A brash, fresh-faced Fury needed just over two minutes to demolish Hungarian opponent Bela Gyongyosi on his professional debut at the National Ice Center in Nottingham in December 2008.

Since that first display of punishing punches, Fury has won 31 more, including two notable early victories over John McDermott in 2009 and 2010, winning the British heavyweight title on both occasions.

His most recent victory was against British brawler Whyte at Wembley Stadium in April 2022, triumphing with a vicious sixth-round knockout in front of 94,000 ticket holders.

Fury’s record stands at 32-0-1 with the only draw on his career in controversial circumstances as no winner was declared in his first fight with Wilder in 2018.

What is Tyson Fury’s knockout percentage?

Hammer-handed Fury has a knockout rate of 69.7% and his brutal beating of Whyte was the fourth time he’s left an opponent unable to continue in five fights.

Twenty-three of his contests have ended in a knockout and he battled to a draw with Wilder in his first title fight in over three years in December 2018, when he memorably scaled the floor at the last second after lying flat on your back. .

Fury knocked down Wilder twice before winning his second fight, and the pair traded several knockdowns before the fighter known as “The Gypsy King” closed the show in the 11th round of an epic third encounter.

Tyson Fury’s Greatest Fights

Derek Chisora

Durable Chisora ​​took Fury the distance in 2011 for the British and Commonwealth heavyweight titles, which were settled by unanimous decision.

The result was more emphatic when they met again in London in 2014, with Fury winning the vacant European, WBO International and British heavyweight titles in a dominating performance that ended with Chisora ​​retiring before the 11th round.

Contrarian Fury has contradicted his retirement talk by saying he’s ready to end his career with a trilogy fight against his 38-year-old compatriot…although latest reports suggest he’s now hung up the gloves for good.

Wladimir Klitschko

Hall of Famer Klitschko was on a winning streak of more than 11 years when he agreed to face Fury in Dusseldorf in 2015.

Klitschko attempted to laugh at Fury’s provocative promises of a shock during pre-fight promotions, threatening to make the challenger pay for his insolence.

By his standards, the revered Ukrainian has barely put a glove on his rival as he lost his WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, IBO and The Ring heavyweight titles on a night when Fury firmly established himself among the even elite.

The scorecards read 116-111, 115-112 and 115-112 in favor of Fury.

Deontay Wilder

Wilder had won all of his 40 professional fights before drawing Fury in a first fight between the two that was peddled as an act of redemption for the visiting star after those years away from the ring.

The man nicknamed ‘The Bronze Bomber’ was a feared campaigner but couldn’t face Fury in the second of their three fights in the United States, looking sorry as his corner properly threw in the towel in the seventh round .

On that evidence and despite his protests, few had pushed Wilder for revenge in October 2021. The dethroned WBC champion came closer than expected as he tried to find an answer to Fury’s ferocious power and unpredictable style.

It may not have been much consolation for the proud Wilder, but he was in good company to find himself on the losing side of a fight with Fury.
