Welcome to popular Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a popular Wikipedia page every day.

With 467,277 views on Sunday, 2 December 2018 our article of the day is Tyson Fury.

Tyson Luke Fury (born 12 August 1988) is an Irish British professional boxer. In 2015 he won the unified WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, IBO, Ring magazine and lineal heavyweight world titles, by defeating long-reigning champion Wladimir Klitschko. The victory earned Fury Fighter of the Year and Upset of the Year awards by The Ring.

He was subsequently stripped of the IBF title later that year for failing to grant a fight against their mandatory challenger, Vyacheslav Glazkov, because he had agreed to a rematch with Klitschko. In 2016, Fury vacated the WBA, WBO, IBO, and lineal titles following a medical investigation and personal issues, and two cancellations of the Klitschko rematch. In 2018, following more than two years of inactivity, The Ring stripped him of his last remaining title. In August 2016, Fury was ranked by BoxRec as the world's sixth best active boxer, pound for pound.

As well as England, Fury also represented Ireland as an amateur, after tracing his family lineage to relatives in Belfast and Galway. He held the British and English heavyweight titles twice each, as well as the European, Commonwealth, and Irish heavyweight titles. He won the ABA super-heavyweight title in 2008 before turning professional later that year.
