Early Life Of Tyson Fury

Tyson Fury was born in August 1988 to Irish parents Amber and John in Wythenshawe, Manchester, England. He was born a month before his due date. Doctors advised his parents that their kid had a slim chance of surviving. In the words of John:

“The doctors warned me he had a slim chance of survival. In the same way, I had lost two daughters who had been born prematurely.”

Tyson was chosen by John since his baby was a fighter who had survived a preterm delivery. Mike Tyson was the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world at the time he was born. Tyson’s mother had 14 children, but only four of them survived. Tyson’s mother gave birth to a daughter when he was nine years old, but she died just a few weeks later. Tyson was severely affected by the incident. He turned to the box to release his rage. His father was his trainer, and he would continue to be his trainer until 2011 when he was sentenced to prison.

Tyson dropped out of school at the age of 11 and went to work tarmacking roads with his father and three brothers.
