Tyson Fury is one of the best boxers around. His record of 30-0-1 is iconic, and the two-time heavyweight champion of the world is definitely a legend of the sport. That’s not what this post is about, though. This is about Tyson Fury’s wife Paris Fury.

While most is known about the Gypsy King, his wife Paris is not someone who is widely known. Here are some words about Fury’s biggest supporter.

Tyson Fury and Paris Fury met through Tyson’s aunt at a wedding when she was 15, and Tyson was 17, which was in 2005. After one year, they started dating after Paris had her 16th birthday. She also comes from a family devoted to religion, just like Tyson, and Paris was brought up in an Irish Travelers family.

According to people close to the couple, it was Paris’ friend who re-introduced them a few days after her birthday, and they were ready to start dating soon after. After two years of dating, in 2008, in an intimate ceremony in Doncaster, England, Tyson and Paris Fury officially married and started their life together.

The couple has 6 children as of today, three of them being sons and three daughters. Interestingly enough, all of their sons are named Prince, and Tyson shared the reason why in the documentary called Tyson Fury: The Gypsy King:

I’m a king and they’re princes until they earn their rightful name.

Their sons are called Prince John James, Prince Tyson Fury II and Prince Adonis Amaziah, and daughters Athena, Venezuela and Valencia Amber. Unfortunately for the Fury family, Paris also had two miscarriages, in 2014 and 2018.

Speaking more directly about Tyson Fury’s wife Paris Fury, she is a 31-year-old TV presenter and model, also from the UK, more specifically from Doncaster, where the couple got married. Speaking to The Visitor, Paris revealed how she felt about Tyson when she first laid eyes on him:

Even though Tyson was a similar age to me, he looked about 25 as he was so big. He had all this facial hair and a beard and these big sideburns. I remember seeing Tyson as soon as my friend and I got out of the car to go into the wedding and I have to admit I did refer to him as ‘Farmer Giles’ and have a laugh at his expense.

She continued:

Then his aunt, who I had known all my life as she was my mum’s friend, told me she wanted to introduce me to her nephew. I was wearing a hat for the wedding and I remember being hardly able to see Tyson from under my hat as he was so tall. We only saw each other for a split second and I didn’t really give him another thought.

However, clearly something stuck and a year later, in a chance meeting, love began between the two. Paris specified how it happened:

The night was to mark my 16th birthday. Tyson happened to be there by fluke. The night was to mark my 16th birthday. Tyson happened to be there by fluke. Tyson would train in boxing during the week and then come and see me at the weekend. I would always be so excited at the thought of seeing him.

Paris Fury also outlined one thing that was truly incredible, and a show of respect for their shared faith. She specified:

Even after we got engaged, Tyson would sleep in a caravan in the yard of my parents’ home while I slept inside the house. We didn’t sleep together until after we got married. That is the traveler’s way and the Gypsy way of life.

It has to be said that their story is truly amazing, as they both come from similar backgrounds and now share an incredible life highlighted by his successes in boxing. According to the Mirror in the UK, the Fury family is worth around £40 million, which is around $55 million, but they do not flaunt it, choosing rather to live in a more peaceful area of the UK, Morecambe, where they raise their 6 children.

The Fury tale is a story of tradition and a little bit of luck, but it is great to see that Paris and Tyson are able to enjoy their life together, even with the setbacks they went through.
