'My dad is a Man amongst men' - Tyson Fury

This is the Gypsy Warrior, Big John Fury, standing his corner, totally unfiltered and in his own words.

I’ll have a fight with anybody. Win, lose or draw. I’m out there, shirt off, done and dusted. If you’ve got Fury DNA, you’re not shy of a fight.

Born into a family of Irish traveller heritage, Big John Fury descends from a long line of bare-knuckle fighters – including King of the Gypsies, Bartley Gorman. So it’s no surprise that he found himself fighting outside the ring at a young age.

From his early years in Manchester, John learned to box by bare-knuckle fighting within the travelling community – before graduating into the sport professionally. The ring has never been far from his sights, and John has played a crucial role as coach and cornerman for his two-time British heavyweight champion son, Tyson Fury.

When Fury Takes Over is the real story behind the legend, from memories of growing up as a traveller to stories of boxing for a Sherpa van, via life lessons from his time in prison and finding balance as a fighter and a family man.
