Tyson Fury at Llandudno’s Venue Cymru.
On Thursday, 8th September, 2022, a full house at Llandudno’s Venue Cymru,
was treated to an enthralling and entertaining session with
the reigning WBC, Ring Magazine and lineal
heavyweight champion of the World,
Tyson’s father John gave us a fascinating insight into how
he made sure the young Tyson Fury and his brothers
had a roof over their heads,
were fed properly and also attended school.
Tyson then joined the show and told a packed audience
that from the age of 14 he wanted to defeat
World Boxing Champion Wladimir Klitschko.
This had always been Tyson’s dream goal
and when it was achieved he found there was a void
in his Boxing career which was soon to cause him
From 18 stone heavyweight to 28 stone overweight.
From being an eighteen stone heavyweight fighting machine,
Tyson became a 28 stone overweight.
There were alcohol and drug issues to contend with
but eventually he conquered these demons.
Deontay Wilder becomes the main target.
Tyson was determined to fight Wilder
and after months of severe training he thought he was ready
to take him on in Paradise, Nevada, USA.
This was not a view shared by Tyson’s wife and family.
Watching videos of Wilder proved very traumatic
for Tyson’s wife, father and brothers.
They didn’t want the fight to go ahead
as Wilder’s punching was venomous.
The contest did go ahead
and ended in a controversial draw.
This bout was the first of a trinity of fights
during which Wilder knocked Tyson
down on ten occasions.
Every time Tyson picked himself up,
dusted himself down and continued the fight.
After the three fights with Wilder,
Tyson was the WBC Heavyweight
Champion of the World.
After his victory over Dillian Whyte
Tyson told the press he had decided to retire from Boxing.
Tyson found retirement hard work
and returned to the ring once again.
Fury v Joshua is on the cards.
Tyson has challenged Anthony Joshua
to a ‘Battle Of Britain’ contest
with a 60-40 split purse.
Tyson wants the fight to take place
at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff,
in late November or early December 2022.
The venue has yet to be decided and Joshua
has yet to accept the challenge
at the time of writing this report.
Goodbye American Pie.
To close an excellent evening of entertainment
we had a duet featuring Tyson
and the show’s Geordie compere
singing Don McClean’s
Very appropriate, as it was a case of
‘Goodbye American Pie’
good evening UK
