Tyson Fury record: How many fights has Fury won in his career? | Boxing | sport

Former unified world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury takes on Otto Wallin at T-Mobile Arena tonight in Las Vegas.

The “Gypsy King” is fighting for the second time since his draw against Deontay Wilder last December.

Fury holds an undefeated record, with the only blemish on his record being the draw with WBC King Wilder.

The 31-year-old slugger last fought back in June, beating German underdog Tom Schwarz via second-round stoppage.

Fury was just too good for the outclassed Schwarz, who was barely able to put a glove on the former champ.

The ‘Furious one’ has faced two reigning world champions, and many believe he should have been named the winner on both occasions.

In 2015, he traveled to Germany to face defending champion Wladimir Klitschko, who had been undefeated for 11 years prior.

Few gave Fury a hell of a chance to win the WBA, IBF, WBO, IBF, Ring Magazine and lineal heavyweight titles, but the ‘Gypsy King’ stunned the boxing world to secure a victory by unanimous decision.

After beating Ukrainian Klitschko, Fury suffered from mental illness and due to complications outside of the sport he was unable to compete and did not fight again for another two and a half years.

When he returned to the ring, having lost over 100 pounds, he took just two fights before facing WBC champion – and feared knockout artist – Wilder.

After being knocked down twice by the American, Fury came off the canvas to secure a majority draw, although many felt he dispatched the champion in 12 rounds.

Fury entered the fight against Klitschko with a 24-0 record, with his best victory ever against former world title challenger Derek Chisora.

Going into tonight’s fight against Otto Wallin, Fury boasts a 28-0-1 record, with just the draw against Wilder keeping him from having a perfect record.

If he wins tonight he will have 29 wins under his belt and will likely continue to face Wilder early next year.

But Fury insisted earlier in the week that he was not thinking too much about his future in the sport.

He told the Mirror: “I have no ambition in boxing, none. All the ambitions I’ve ever had, I’ve fulfilled them.

“There’s not a single thing I wanted that I didn’t accomplish. When I started, there wasn’t a single thing on my “checklist” that I didn’t hit.

“I live one day at a time, I live one fight at a time, people say, ‘Ah, you’ve got Wilder after Wallin’. Wallin isn’t even here yet.

“I might not be alive in February, who knows? »
