Tyson Luke Fury is an English professional boxer who is well recognized for competing in Ireland in the Olympic games. He is excellently known as Tyson Fury. He has won WBA, IBF, WBO, and IBO titles, along with being named Fighter of the Year in 2015 by The Ring. After a two-year hiatus, he returned to win both 2018's Comeback of the Year and Round of the Year. As an amateur, Tyson fought for both Ireland and England at an international level, winning the bronze at the World Junior Championships in 2008. Fury's win against long-reigning world champion Wladimir Klitschko was deemed the Upset of the Year in 2015, according to The Ring. He won the Irish and WBO Inter-Continental titles, before defeating Chisora again in a 2014 rematch for the European and WBO International heavyweight titles. 

Tyson was stripped of his IBF title 10 days after the Klitschko bout as he was unable to grant a fight with the IBF's mandatory challenger, Vyacheslav Glazkov, due to a rematch clause in his contract with Klitschko. He also knocked out Wilder again in the trilogy fight in October 2021, this time in the eleventh round. But, Tyson was refused entry to the United States, apparently a result of his links with Kinahan in June 2022. Moreover, he has also gained a lovely fan base on his social media as he has earned more than 5.7M followers on his Instagram account and over 2.2M followers on his Twitter account.
