Tyson Fury record: Fights, knockouts, KO percentage, boxing stats for The Gypsy King

Tyson Fury’s insistence that he is retired has taken a step towards reality after the giant Mancunian vacated his ring heavyweight title.

He first secured the title by beating Wladimir Klitschko in 2015 and then won it again by beating Deontay Wilder in 2020.

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

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

What is Tyson Fury’s boxing record?

It took a brash and fresh Fury little more than two minutes to demolish Hungarian opponent Bela Gyongyosi on his professional debut at Nottingham’s National Ice Center in December 2008.

Since that early display of punitive power-punching, Fury has amassed a further 31 wins, including two notable early victories over John McDermott in 2009 and 2010, taking the British Heavyweight Title both times.

His last win was in April 2022 at Wembley Stadium against British slugger Whyte when he triumphed by a vicious KO in the sixth round in front of 94,000 ticket holders.

Fury’s record stands at 32-0-1, with the only tie of his career coming amid controversial circumstances when his first fight with Wilder in 2018 saw no winner declared.

What is Tyson Fury’s KO percentage?

Hammerhanded Fury has a 69.7 per cent KO rate and his brutal swipe at Whyte was the fourth time he has disabled an opponent in five fights to continue.

23 of his contests ended in a knockout and he fought Wilder for a tie in his first title fight in more than three years in December 2018, when he memorably climbed off the floor at the last second after lying flat on his back.

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

Tyson Fury’s greatest fights

Derek Chisora

The long-lived Chisora ​​put Fury the distance to the 2011 British and Commonwealth heavyweight titles, which were decided unanimously.

The result was more emphatic when they met again in London in 2014. Fury won the European, WBO International and vacant British heavyweight titles in a dominant performance that ended with Chisora’s retirement before the 11th round.

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

Wladimir Klitschko

Hall-of-famer Klitschko was on a triumphant streak spanning more than 11 years when he agreed to face Fury in Dusseldorf 2015.

Klitschko tried to laugh at Fury’s provocative promises of a shock during prefight promotions and threatened to make the challenger pay for his outrageousness.

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

The scorecards are 116-111, 115-112 and 115-112 in Fury’s favour.

Deontay Wilder

Wilder had won all of his 40 professional fights before tying with Fury in a first fight between the pair that was sold as a redemption for the guest star after those years outside the ring.

The man nicknamed ‘The Bronze Bomber’ was a feared fighter but failed to deal with Fury in the second of their three fights in the USA and was a sad sight when his corner correctly threw in the towel in the seventh round.

Based on that evidence, and despite his protestations, few had advised Wilder to seek 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 of a consolation for the proud Wilder, but he was in good company when he found himself on the losing side of a fight with Fury.
