IT’S FAIR to say that the Fury family have cemented themselves in boxing history.

Who is Tyson Fury’s mum Amber?
Amber Fury is John Fury‘s first wife, and mum to Heavyweight world champ Tyson Fury.
Unlike her famous family, she has remained completely out of the spotlight and there are no photos of her.
Amber has also never been to watch one of son’s fights and, according to Fury, is not interested in his world heavyweight belts, with her only concern being he is “healthy and happy”.
Fury told the Telegraph: “She has never been to one of my fights, amateur or pro, and never been in the public eye at all.
“My mam doesn’t care if I’m world champion or not, as long as I’m healthy and happy.
“You could give my mother that table full of £50 notes and diamonds and it wouldn’t change who she is, ever.”
Fury also revealed in his memoir Behind The Mask, that his mum is not fully aware of his superstardom.
And she was puzzled when so many fans asked for pictures during a shopping trip following his 2018 draw with Deontay Wilder.
Fury famously went on to beat Wilder in the 2020 rematch, before winning again in their 2021 trilogy battle.
He wrote: “To be honest, my mum doesn’t fully understand what I have achieved as a boxer.
“I took her out shopping one time after the Wilder fight and I was being stopped for photographs and autographs everywhere I went in Manchester and she couldn’t understand it.
“She actually said, ‘Hey, son, how do you know so many people?’
“I had to explain to her that I was the heavyweight champion of the world and a lot of people had watched me and supported me. That was actually very special.”
How many children does Amber have?
Their daughter, Ramona, tragically passed away months after birth.
After they split, Amber’s ex-husband John went onto marry his second wife Chantal.
Who is Tyson Fury’s father John?
Born in Tuam, Galway, Ireland into a family of Irish Traveller heritage, John Fury is known by his nickname “Gypsy John” .
He is a former professional boxer and bare-knuckle fighter, and patriarch of the Fury family.
Fury Sr’s career spanned eight years – from 1987 until 1995 – and in total, he was involved in 13 bouts.
