Tyson Fury

Tyson Fury, born on August 12, 1988, in Wythenshawe, Manchester, England, emerged as one of the most formidable figures in the heavyweight division of boxing. Fury’s early years in boxing were marked by success in the amateur ranks. Standing at an imposing 6 feet 9 inches tall, he possessed a natural athleticism and agility that belied his size. He won numerous amateur titles, including the ABA Championships, establishing himself as a force to be reckoned with.

In 2008, Fury made his professional debut, embarking on a path that would see him rise through the ranks with unparalleled ferocity. His unique blend of size, skill, and showmanship captured the imagination of boxing fans around the world. Fury’s early professional career saw him dispatch opponents with ease, earning him a reputation as one of the most promising prospects in the sport.

However, it was his epic showdown with Wladimir Klitschko in 2015 that truly catapulted Fury into the global spotlight. Defying the odds, Fury delivered a masterful performance to dethrone Klitschko, who had reigned as the undisputed heavyweight champion for over a decade. The victory made Fury the WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, IBO, and The Ring magazine heavyweight champion of the world, cementing his place in boxing history.


Despite his meteoric rise, Fury’s journey has been challenging. Battling personal demons and mental health issues, he endured a period of self-imposed exile from the sport. Yet, in true champion fashion, Fury overcame his struggles and returned to the ring with a renewed sense of purpose.

In 2018, Fury embarked on a remarkable comeback, reclaiming his status as one of the premier heavyweight fighters in the world. His thrilling draw with Deontay Wilder in December of that year, followed by a dominant victory in their rematch in 2020, solidified Fury’s status as the lineal heavyweight champion and one of the most captivating figures in boxing.

Oleksandr Usyk

Oleksandr Usyk, born on January 17, 1987, in Simferopol, Crimea, Ukraine, is a boxing phenomenon who has made an indelible mark on the sport. Usyk’s foray into boxing began in his youth when he honed his skills in the tough training gyms of Ukraine. In the amateur ranks, Usyk achieved remarkable success, capturing numerous titles and accolades, including a gold medal in the heavyweight division at the 2012 London Olympics.

In 2013, Usyk made his professional debut, embarking on a journey that would see him dominate the cruiserweight division like few before him. Usyk’s rise through the professional ranks was characterized by a string of impressive victories, culminating in his capture of the WBO cruiserweight title in 2016. However, it was Usyk’s campaign in the inaugural World Boxing Super Series tournament that truly solidified his status as one of the sport’s elite. In a series of electrifying performances, Usyk defeated top contenders en route to claiming the WBC, WBA, IBF, and WBO cruiserweight titles, becoming the first undisputed champion in the division’s history.


In 2019, Usyk made the bold decision to move up to the heavyweight division, seeking to test his skills against the sport’s biggest and most formidable competitors. Despite facing a significant disadvantage in terms of size, Usyk’s technical brilliance and ring IQ quickly made him a force to be reckoned with among the heavyweight ranks.
