Tyson Fury

Every time I stray away from the Lord’s word, I find emptiness and darkness.
Tyson Fury

What do I see when I look in the mirror? One handsome man. No, I see the same person I have seen for the last 27 years: the person I believed I could be when I was a child, the person I have inspired and dreamed to be all my life, and that’s the person I have seen, from being that big to as big as the roof – the same guy.
Tyson Fury

Whatever is conventional, I am the opposite. So if you want to walk in a straight line, I am going to walk in zigzags. If you want to throw a 1-2, I’ll throw a 2-1.
Tyson Fury

Nothing has run smoothly with me throughout my life. Everything has had ups and downs and lefts and rights, and that’s just the way it has panned out for me, unfortunately.
Tyson Fury

I’m a gypsy: no education, no schooling, nothing. I don’t care what people think of me. I don’t care about being a hero, a role model, a champion.
Tyson Fury

Obviously, I care about the kids. Family, all that sort of stuff. But really, I don’t care about life, don’t care about death. Nothing. That’s the kind of man you are dealing with. That’s why I can’t be beaten.
Tyson Fury

I’m not even scared of the devil. If the devil confronted me, I’d confront him as well.
Tyson Fury

I do like going to the movies, but I like eating tons of sweets and ice cream, so I can’t go to the movies anymore.
Tyson Fury

Let’s make this clear: I do not hate anybody.
Tyson Fury

My Lord and saviour Jesus Christ does not hate anybody.

Top 10
Tyson Fury
QUOTES
I believe all woman look good in dresses; is that a crime?
Tyson Fury

Listen, I believe I should be winning Sport Personality of the Year because if it’s about sporting achievements and it’s about personality, then I’m a winner hands down.
Tyson Fury

Boxing is a dying sport, really. Years ago, the world heavyweight champion could be said to have reached the highest pinnacle of sport. Even in this country, boxers were heroes. Think of Henry Cooper and Frank Bruno.
Tyson Fury

I’ve got an outspoken personality, which gets people thinking, and my style of fighting is aggressive. Everything’s on the line all the time. In my fights, there’s drama.
Tyson Fury

I think I need a psychiatrist because I do believe I am mentally disturbed in some way.
Tyson Fury

My mum had 14 pregnancies – but only four of us survived. We had a little sister born for a few days and she died. There had to be a funeral.
Tyson Fury

I’m not homophobic, I’m not racist. I’m not against any people. All I have for people is love.
Tyson Fury

At the end of the day, we’re all brothers and sisters in God. What people do is none of my business.
Tyson Fury

Foolish people follow the system, get caught up in media news, what the government wants you to believe and all the higher powers want you to believe, and go down the same path as all the sheep in the cattle market.
Tyson Fury

How many people have different opinions in this world? Every different person has a different opinion of what that bottle really is or what colour it is. If I say that bottle is clear, there will be someone out there telling me that bottle is green or blue.
Tyson Fury

My opinion is that I follow what the Lord says. Or I try to. Others are following what they want to do, basically. They are living for their self. I am living for God.
Tyson Fury

If ever you want to get rid of somebody you don’t want to talk to, just mention God. They’re out of there.
Tyson Fury

I will become the greatest, because all travellers have to be able to adapt. That quality, adaptability, is essential to that way of life. Not many boxers have it but I can adapt before a fight to the opponent, during the fight if necessary.
Tyson Fury

Although I think of myself as the greatest heavyweight, I do respect the legends of the past for what they did. But they are not my heroes.
Tyson Fury

My only idol is God, and I kick myself when I don’t pray regularly enough.
Tyson Fury

I pray for forgiveness. For help and guidance. To be a better person. For the health of my family. For the world to be a better place.
Tyson Fury

Klitschko was the reigning champion for a decade and regarded by many as one of the greatest heavyweights of all time. I’m never going to face another opponent with that legacy.
Tyson Fury

Everything I’ve set out to do, I’ve achieved, and all the praise goes to God.
Tyson Fury

When my little son, Prince, had health issues as a baby, we were told that he had a 20 percent chance of survival.
Tyson Fury

Everything is possible through God, and I’m living proof of that.
Tyson Fury

There are 7 billion people in the world, but there’s only one heavyweight champion of the world, and that’s me.
Tyson Fury

I’ve said a lot of stuff in the past, but not with any intentions to hurt anybody. It’s all a bit tongue-in-cheek.
Tyson Fury

I’m not a sexist. I believe if a man can to go work all his life, a woman can. Who am I to say, ‘Don’t do that because you’re a girl?’
Tyson Fury

There’s lots of sins in this life. We’re all sinners. If you don’t believe in God and you don’t believe in the scriptures, then we are on a different page.
Tyson Fury

I aim for the stars, and winning a world title will not be a fulfilment of a dream for me. It never has been.
Tyson Fury

I never started in boxing to be a British champion or a world champion. There are loads of world champions in Britain, and if you mention them to someone out there on the street, nobody knows who they are.
Tyson Fury

For me, it’s about being a star, being a superstar, and not just winning a world title but becoming the best-ever British fighter this country has ever had. That’s what I am, and that’s what I intend to do.
Tyson Fury

I’ve been in crisis situations, I’ve been down, I’ve been hurt, I’ve been behind on the scorecards, and I’ve had to pull that shot out to knock somebody out. I’ve been in all kinds of situations and still come out on top.
Tyson Fury

Lennox Lewis is a hater of Tyson Fury.
Tyson Fury

He has been a world champion – great for him – but listen, whenever Lennox Lewis wants to come out of retirement, I’m here waiting for him because I’m the best British fighter to come out of these shores.
Tyson Fury

People should look up to me. Young kids. I am a good role model. I’ll show them how men should really be. And kids can take note from that. I am a good role model. Lots of kids look up to me.
Tyson Fury

What personality does it take to drive a car around a track 100 times or hit a ball back and forth. That’s not very personality is it?
Tyson Fury

I’m a little bit backward. I didn’t really go to school.
Tyson Fury

My belief is that my wife should be at home looking after my kids and cooking and cleaning. She’s a very privileged woman to have a husband like me. Not everyone’s in her position, but the ones who are are very lucky. That’s my opinion.
Tyson Fury

Whether someone like Klitschko wins, loses, draws, or gets knocked out in five seconds, he is still a big name.
Tyson Fury

Wilder is not a big draw in the U.S. He maybe sells 5,000 to 10,000 tickets when he’s fighting in his own town for the heavyweight champion.
Tyson Fury

I’m a unique fighter – one of a kind.
Tyson Fury

There’s never been someone like me in history – a fighter like me only comes along every 1,000 years.
Tyson Fury

I don’t hate old men but listen when being spoken to.
Tyson Fury

They are the three venues I wanted to box in – I wasn’t really interested in Las Vegas and all of them places. The three I always said was Croke Park, United, and Madison Square Garden.
Tyson Fury

You can take a man out of Ireland, but you can’t take the Irishness out of the man.
Tyson Fury

Growing up, I was brought up around Irish music, Irish traditions.
Tyson Fury

There was a lot of politics going on, and Ireland were denied an Olympic gold medal in 2008.
Tyson Fury

There have been many great fighters like Jake LaMotta, Roberto Duran, and Ricky Hatton. Hatton was a great inside fighter.
Tyson Fury

As a fan, I like watching fighters rather than boxers.
Tyson Fury

Watching two men jib and jab for 12 rounds is not entertaining for me. I want action, knockouts, big shots, and people getting up off the canvas. That’s my ideal fight.
Tyson Fury

Any man who puts a pair of gloves on deserves respect because lots wouldn’t dream of it. To get in there and go one-on-one, you need your hand shaking afterwards. Many men wouldn’t get involved.
Tyson Fury

Goliath was a champion, a monster who had never been beaten, and then this young guy, David, came forward, a child who believed in God and did it.
Tyson Fury

Good will always prevail over evil. I see that in me versus Klitschko.
Tyson Fury

I have a nice house, nice cars, nice watches, nice things. I’ve got money in the bank. I’m not in need of a few quid – as it stands. It’s all irrelevant to me.
Tyson Fury

There are lots of people in the world who have money. Lots of people in Morecambe have money, let alone the world. And Morecambe is quite a small place.
Tyson Fury

I set out in the beginning to be the heavyweight champion of the world. From a very young age, I was going to be the heavyweight champion of the world. Nothing else was a problem to me. That’s what I’ll finish doing.
Tyson Fury

Sometimes emotions can win fights. Sometimes letting your feelings out in a fight can win you the fight. When it means the world to you, it’s not just a sports contest – a boxing match for money or belts.
Tyson Fury

I am fighting royalty. I have gypsy kings on both sides of the family.
Tyson Fury

Women have to be pure and respectful.
Tyson Fury

I’ve had hundreds of challenges at Traveller gatherings. They get a few beers in them, and they start thinking they are Tyson or Ali: throwing punches, swearing, and jumping around with their big fat bellies. I’d love to knock a few of them out.
Tyson Fury

My brother Shane and I used to spar with each other in the kitchen. We didn’t have gloves, so we wrapped tea towels around our hands.
Tyson Fury

I’ve challenged Cain Velasquez to a fight three times. He’s a little boy who doesn’t want to fight. He said no, live on TV.
Tyson Fury

I will be dictated to by nobody. I’m the man. And if anyone can prove me wrong, their chance is inside a boxing ring. You don’t like it, change the station.
Tyson Fury

I prefer to fight a bigger guy. I don’t like fighting smaller guys; they give me problems with their agility.
Tyson Fury

I have not met a man as tall as me who is as quick as me, ever.
Tyson Fury

I’ve sparred with lots of people and played around with everybody.
Tyson Fury

Training’s training; boxing’s boxing. Everyone does the same kind of stuff: they spar, they train, they do whatever they do to prepare for fights.
Tyson Fury

I already know what boxers do; I’ve been in it all my life. I know what they do, and I know how they prepare.
Tyson Fury

Although there’s been a fighter before me called Mike Tyson, I’m my own Tyson. I’m Tyson Fury. I ain’t trying to be anybody else.
Tyson Fury

I don’t fight like Mike Tyson. I’m nothing at all like Mike Tyson. I’m out to build my own legacy and not live off anyone else’s name.
Tyson Fury

I just need to count the rounds and count me money afterwards.
Tyson Fury

I’d like to take a course in writing. I’m not the best writer in the world. I’d like to write more neatly, even though people don’t send many handwritten letters these days.
Tyson Fury

I can fight, but that’s the only thing I can do. When it comes to anything other than fighting or talking, I’m not very good.
Tyson Fury

I don’t need David Haye and his antics to earn money.
Tyson Fury

I have lived in Ireland, visited all my life, and when I fight, I represent Ireland.
Tyson Fury

All my people are from Ireland. I was born in Manchester, but I am Irish.
Tyson Fury

I’m a fighting man, a fighting man with generations of fighting men before me in my family. That’s all we do: we fight.
Tyson Fury

As you know, I get a lot of abuse on Twitter. And while I’m abroad on training camp, I train three times a day, often for two hours a time, and I haven’t got time to respond to all the people that ask questions.
Tyson Fury

I’m really excited about my future plans, as I’m doing things differently and currently training like a Trojan in pursuit of becoming heavyweight champion of the world.
Tyson Fury

My first job was working for my dad. He was a used-car dealer, and I used to wash the cars down, clean them out, and so on. I would do stuff for him pretty much every day. It was quite a good job, to be honest.
Tyson Fury

I was always quite good at fixing and working with cars. My dad’s always dealt cars, and I’ve always been brought up around them. They’re one of the things I’ve always been interested in.
Tyson Fury

I could drive from the age of nine. My dad had his car pitch at home, and we used to drive the cars around the land, take them up to the tap, wash them, and reverse them back.
Tyson Fury

A lot of my friends, when I was 14 or 15, they were all up and down, wanting to go out on a Friday night, and my dad had me working really late on Fridays and Saturday mornings and even on Sunday mornings. And when I’d finished all that, we used to spend the rest of the time talking about boxing.
Tyson Fury

People can say what they want about me. But I’ve got a big heart and will keep going.
Tyson Fury

I’ve got a tidy chin and a decent punch. And, for people who think they can fight and are champions, I’ll make it extremely hard.
Tyson Fury

It’s not about how much money I’m getting paid. It’s just a love of one-on-one combat. I feel I’m at home. I love the ring entrances, the talking. I’m the master of it all.
Tyson Fury

Racism is a sign of ignorance, in my opinion. It’s people who haven’t been anywhere, haven’t seen the world.
Tyson Fury

If anyone wants to abuse other people for whatever colour, race or creed they are, then it’s just stupidness, isn’t it?
Tyson Fury

I’m looking forward to fighting Chisora, getting him out of the way, and then fighting Klitschko for all the belts, but I don’t think Wladimir is going to take the fight.
Tyson Fury

I’m like the man who is always supposed to fight, but never ends up fighting. He just spends money.
Tyson Fury

I’ve not been paid millions of pounds for any fights. I’ve not made any money out of boxing.
Tyson Fury

All I care about is providing and living every day. I don’t care about world titles, being a legend, or being a hero.
Tyson Fury

I just want to make money, get on with my life, and be involved in good fights. If I’m not going to be involved in good fights, then what’s the point being a boxer?
