Tyson Fury’s Celtic connection after ‘Gypsy King’ wins in Las Vegas

Tyson Fury defeated Deontay Wilder to retain the WBC Heavyweight Title in Las Vegas last night. Fury’s story is one of determination and mental strength having recovered from a number of putdowns outside of the ring to rise up to the very top of boxing once again.

The fighter, nicknamed ‘The Gypsy King’, comes from an Irish Traveller family and has been pictured a number of times wearing the Hoops. He is a Manchester United fan and has been pictured following the English National Team around on their travels; however, he has been very open about his Irish heritage. This is something that he is very proud of. Despite his connection to United, he clearly has a connection with Celtic and has been pictured in the past wearing the club’s colours.

  1. I love big Fury, to be honest the Irish and Celtic connection has no bearing on my thoughts. He is a great family man, although he has said himself in his dark days he was not a a great husband or father, from being close to taking his own life to becoming the man that he is again, a great promoter of mental health issues which he suffered from badly, to promoting the importance of your family, always gives his success to our lord Jesus, calls out the bbc for being the satanic organization it is. And he is not a bad boxer, by far the best of his time in the ring, his fight last night will become legendary, him and Wilder are two warriors. For me the guy is inspirational.
