Tyson Fury’s record as a professional consists of 31 fights to date, of which he has won 30 and drawn 1. A total of 21 of Fury’s victories have come inside distance. Here is a full rundown of his fights and results to date:

Fury vs Deontay Wilder 2

Date: February 22, 2020
Venue: MGM Grand Garden Arena, Las Vegas, United States
Result: Fury won by TKO R7

Under the tutelage of Kronk disciples Javan ‘SugarHill’ Steward and Andy Lee for the first time, Fury came way more aggressive than in the first fight to hand ‘The Bronze Bomber’ his first professional defeat in his 44th fight via a dominant offensive performance.

Fury vs Otto Wallin

Date: September 14, 2019
Venue: T-Mobile Arena, Las Vegas, Nevada
Result: Fury won by UD (116-112, 117-111, 118-110)

Fury overcame a major scare to stay on course for a lucrative rematch with Wilder, showing guts and smarts in equal measure to survive a horrible cut sustained in round three, overcome the dangerous Wallin and score a unanimous points victory.

Fury vs Tom Schwarz

Date: June 15, 2019
Venue: MGM Grand Garden Arena, Las Vegas, Nevada
Result: Fury won by TKO R2

Fury looked highly impressive in his Las Vegas debut and the first bout of his lucrative five-fight deal with ESPN. After a circumspect opening session he opened up in round 2, battering Schwarz with heavy combinations until Kenny Bayless stepped in six seconds before the bell.

Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder

Date: December 1, 2018
Venue: Staples Center, Los Angeles, California
Result: Draw (115-111 Wilder, 114-112 Fury, 113-113)

It says much for Fury’s technical dominance that despite being floored twice – notably by the shot which sparked that memorable recovery in R12 – many experts felt he was robbed when the judges scored the fight a draw. An incredible performance from ‘The Gypsy King’ just six months into an epic comeback.

Fury vs Francesco Pianeta

Date: August 18, 2018
Venue: Windsor Park, Belfast, Northern Ireland
Result: Fury won by UD (100-90)

Not the most exciting of nights but Fury continued his ring rehabilitation by pitching a shutout against at Windsor Park. Meanwhile Deontay Wilder was on hand to properly begin the promotion for their planned December 2018 showdown.

Fury vs Sefer Seferi

Date: June 9, 2018
Venue: Manchester Arena, Manchester, England
Result: Fury won RTD R4

After two-and-a-half years out of the ring, Fury finally returned to doing what he does best. The bout may have had a bit of farce about it with Seferi more than four stones lighter, and when Fury stepped things up in round 4 his overmatched opponent had no answer, quitting on his stool after the session had ended.

Fury vs Wladimir Klitschko

Date: November 28, 2015
Venue: ESPRIT Arena, Dusseldorf, Germany
Result: Fury won by UD (115-112, 115-112, 116-111)

‘The Gypsy King’ became heavyweight champion of the world at the age of 27, ending the long reign of Wladimir Klitschko with a brilliant technical performance on the road. In the process Fury took the WBA, IBF, WBO and lineal world heavyweight titles. Klitschko looked completely befuddled by Fury’s unique boxing skills, and just unable to pull the trigger. The result was a seismic changing of the guard in the heavyweight division. For Fury though, it would be the last fight before mental health problems and weight gain saw him spend more than two years in the wilderness.

Fury vs Christian Hammer

Date: February 28, 2015
Venue: O2 Arena, London, England
Result: Fury won RTD R8

‘The Gypsy King’ looked sharp and strong as he completely took Hammer to pieces in a one-sided beatdown. Hammer failed to answer the bell for round 9 after taking some fearsome punishment as Fury stepped up his pursuit of Wladimir Klitschko.

Fury vs Dereck Chisora 2

Date: November 29, 2014
Venue: ExCel Arena, London, England
Result: Fury won RTD R10

Fury registered a comprehensive second victory over his British rival in a final eliminator for Wladimir Klitschko’s WBO world heavyweight title. He took the sting out of Chisora early before going to work on rearranging his facial features. Chisora’s corner wisely pulled him out before round 11, with their man having sustained more than enough punishment.

Tyson Fury vs Joey Abell

Date: February 15, 2014
Venue: Copper Box Arena, London, England
Result: Fury won TKO R4

After a disappointing first couple of rounds Fury really stamped his authority as the overmatched Abell began to find the going touch as he hit the deck in the third. The fourth would only provide more of the same as Tyson easily extended his win streak to 22 fights.

Fury vs Steve Cunningham

Date: April 20, 2013
Venue: Madison Square Garden, New York, United States
Result: Fury won KO R7

Fury almost fluffed his lines in a big way on his Madison Square Garden curtain call, being put down in the second round by former cruiserweight king Cunningham, Fury is nothing if not resilient though, and he gradually took control of the fight before finishing it with a peach of a right hook in the seventh.

Fury vs Kevin Johnson

Date: December 1, 2012
Venue: Odyssey Arena, Belfast, Northern Ireland
Result: Fury won by UD (119-110, 119-108, 119-108)

Johnson took the fight with only three weeks’ notice but put in a creditable performance in making Fury look distinctly average en route to a unanimous decision. It moved Fury closer to a potential world title shot, but failed to impress the experts ringside.

Fury vs Vinny Maddalone

Date: July 7, 2012
Venue: Hand Arena, Bristol, England
Result: Fury won TKO R5

Fury started fast against New Yorker Maddalone and never let his opponent get a foothold in a one-sided fight as he opened a cut under Vinny’s left eye in round four. A round later, with blood streaming from the cut and Maddalone again under heavy fire, the fight was stopped.

Fury vs Martin Rogan

Date: April 14, 2012
Venue: Odyssey Arena, Belfast, Northern Ireland
Result: Fury won TKO R5

After a tentative start in the first two rounds, Fury burst into life in R3 by dropping Rogan with a left hook. From that moment on it was all Fury and he dominated until the fight was stopped in round 5 when Rogan was again put down, this time by a body shot.

Fury vs Neven Pajkic

Date: November 12, 2011
Venue: Event City, Manchester, England
Result: Fury won TKO R3

‘The Gypsy King’ survived something of a scare as he was floored for the first time as a professional en route to a third-stoppage of the hitherto unbeaten Pajkic. Having been decked by a huge right in the second, Fury – as he would do often throughout his career – recovered swiftly and strongly to dole out punishment of his own in round 3, forcing Pajkic to take a standing count. The stoppage appeared to be a little premature and enraged Pajkic, but Fury improved to 17-0.

Fury vs Nicolai Firtha

Date: September 17, 2011
Venue: Kings Hall, Belfast, Northern Ireland
Result: Fury won TKO R5

Fury had to show the strength of his chin as well as his offensive talent to dispose of Firtha as he took a huge shot from the American in the third round. Fury regained the advantage in the fourth and by the fifth Firtha was ready to fall. Fury landed a huge right to put Firtha in big trouble and the fight was stopped.

Fury vs Dereck Chisora

Date: July 23, 2011
Venue: Wembley Arena, London, England
Result: Fury won UD (118-112, 117-111, 117-111)

Fury landed the biggest win of his career so far, and in the process the British and Commonwealth heavyweight titles, with an impressive dismantling of Chisora at Wembley Arena. Chisora did have ‘The Gypsy King’ in trouble in the early rounds, but once Fury regained his composure he dominated with his jab and clubbing left hand both proving to be productive weapons.

Fury vs Marcelo Nascimento

Date: February 19, 2011
Venue: Wembley Arena, London, England
Result: Fury won KO R5

Fury prevailed in a street brawl which lacked quality but more than made up for it with action. Fury’s jab did prove to be a useful weapon as he dominated for most of the night, and finally ended proceedings with a huge right hook in round 5.

Fury vs Zack Page

Date: December 18, 2010
Venue: Pepsi Coliseum, Quebec City, Canada
Result: Fury won UD (80-72, 80-72, 80-72)

Fury made his North American debut on the undercard of the big Bernard Hopkins-Jean Pascal showdown in Canada and had legendary trainer Emanuel Steward in his corner for this one. Fury’s jab and superior physical weapons enabled him to ease to a comfortable victory, with the scorecards showing a shutout across the board – 80-72 three times.

Fury vs Rich Power

Date: September 10, 2010
Venue: York Hall, London, England
Result: Fury won PTS (80-72)

Late stand-in Power had a literal mountain to climb, taking the fight at short notice against an opponent with huge physical advantages. And so it proved as ‘The Gypsy King’ continued his ring education by pitching a shutout on referee Jeffery Hinds’ scorecard.

Fury vs John McDermott 2

Date: June 25, 2010
Venue: Brentwood Centre, Brentwood, England
Result: Fury won TKO R9

If Fury’s first meeting with McDermott had resulted in a highly controversial outcome, their rematch some nine months later provided a more clear-cut result. But that doesn’t tell the whole story as Fury had to come through deep waters in a brutal encounter in steamy temperatures inside the Brentwood Centre. ‘The Gypsy King’ looked in big trouble at times but was able to be the last man standing as McDermott finally caved in the ninth round.

Fury vs Hans-Joerg Blasko

Date: March 5, 2010
Venue: Huddersfield Sports Centre, Huddersfield, England
Result: Fury won TKO R1

It took less than three minutes for a trim-looking Fury to dispose of his overmatched German opponent in Huddersfield, as he was quickly out of the gates en route to an early stoppage – courtesy of a stiff jab and some powerful combinations.

Fury vs Tomas Mrazek

Date: September 26, 2009
Venue: The O2, Dublin, Ireland
Result: Fury won PTS (60-57)

Fury overcame a broken hand sustained in round 2 to outpoint the game Mrazek in Dublin. ‘The Gypsy King’ was unable to finish off his opponent, effectively fighting one-handed for the remaining four rounds en route to a points victory.

Fury vs John McDermott

Date: September 11, 2009
Venue: Brentwood Centre, Brentwood, England
Result: Fury won PTS (98-92)

In the biggest fight of his career so far, Fury came through by far his biggest scare. Despite the fact most ringside experts had McDermott – who landed good right hands all night – ahead on the cards, referee Terry O’Connor scored it 98-92 in favour of Fury after the 10 rounds came to a close. The result caused a storm in the boxing media, with The Guardian for one claiming that ‘The Gypsy King’ ‘clearly got away with a robbery of the highway variety’. A crestfallen McDermott meanwhile was left to bemoan sadly at ringside: “I’m a nice man – what did I do wrong?”

Fury vs Aleksandrs Selezens

Date: July 18, 2009
Venue: York Hall, London, England
Result: Fury won TKO R3

Selezens suffered the first stoppage defeat of his career as Fury dispatched him to a comprehensive defeat in the third round. Tyson was on top in the first two rounds, but not with any great venom in his punches at this stage. The third however was a different matter as he started to let his hands go, flooring Selezens before the Latvian’s corner threw in the towel.

Fury vs Scott Belshaw

Date: May 23, 2009
Venue: Colosseum, Watford, England
Result: Fury won TKO R2

Fury was impressive in putting away Northern Irishman Belshaw with a vicious body shot in round two of their encounter in Watford. On paper it looked like a decent test for the young Fury, but his speed and boxing ability were too much for his opponent.

Fury vs Mathew Ellis

Date: April 11, 2009
Venue: York Hall, London, England
Result: Fury won KO R1

Embarrassingly easy is the only way to describe Fury’s fifth victory in five professional fights as he decked Ellis twice in the opening 48 seconds before the completely outclassed Blackpool fighter was counted out by referee Dave Parris.

Fury vs Lee Swaby

Date: March 14, 2009
Venue: Aston Events Centre, Birmingham, England
Result: Fury won RTD R4

Fury had to work hard to overcome the game Swaby, and in the process famously proved a bigger danger to himself than his opponent when he somehow managed to land an uppercut on his own chin in round 1. By the end of the fourth Fury was well on top and gradually wearing down his opponent, who was pulled out by his corner before the fifth could begin.

Fury vs Daniil Peretyatko

Date: February 28, 2009
Venue: Norwich Showground, Norwich, England
Result: Fury won RTD R2

Fury notched his third win in three fights when his opponent was pulled out at the end of round 2 after sustaining a nasty cut over his left eye. ‘The Gypsy King’ had a huge size advantage, and made it pay as he walked Peretyatko down with a stiff jab and powerful combinations.

Fury vs Marcel Zeller

Date: January 17, 2009
Venue: Robin Park Centre, Wigan, England
Result: Fury won TKO R3

Fury stopped Zeller late in round 3 of their showdown in Wigan with the German on the ropes and shipping powerful punches as Fury got on top. Combinations and powerful uppercuts were getting through with alarming regularity while little was coming back when the referee stepped in.

Fury vs Bela Gyongyosi

Date: December 6, 2008
Venue: Nottingham Arena, Nottingham, England
Result: Fury won TKO

The much-vaunted Fury – already tipped for the top by promoter Mick Hennessy – made his professional bow on the undercard of Carl Froch’s brilliant WBC world super-middleweight title fight against Jean Pascal in Nottingham. And with his new wife Paris at ringside, ‘The Gypsy King’ duly got off to a winning start as a brutal left hook to the body took care of his Hungarian opponent.
