Fashion icon: Tyson Fury launches shirt collection

Tyson Fury has always seen himself as something of a fashion trend setter, and he’s now stepping up his move into that world by launching a new shirt collection.

The WBC, Ring magazine and lineal world heavyweight champion has teamed up with renowned London-based designer Claudio Lugli to launch ‘The Gypsy King Collection”.

The sartorially spectacular range boasts a number of exotic designs, including a ‘Mental Health Awareness’ number, the proceeds of which will go to mental health charity MIND. ‘The Dosser’ meanwhile needs no introduction – the pattern is something Fury has sported on his suits in the past.

The shirts, which are available online and retail at £90 each, are just the latest move by ‘The Gypsy King’ to capitalise on his huge appeal in the UK.

His incredible comeback from the verge of oblivion in 2018 came after he had suffered mental health issues during a three-year absence from the ring.

And it culminated in him becoming heavyweight champion of the world for a second time when he crushed the unbeaten Deontay Wilder inside seven one-sided rounds at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas in February.

He is still hoping to face Wilder again in a trilogy fight before the end of this year, but at this stage that is looking more unlikely by the day with the global COVID-19 pandemic continuing to wreak havoc on the sporting calendar.
