Tyson Fury is celebrating his one-year anniversary of beating fellow British boxer Dillian Whyte in front of 94,000 people at Wembley Stadium.

Whyte made it back to his feet after Fury’s monstrous uppercut but was deemed unfit to continue by referee Mark Lyson, who then waved off the fight.

Although born in Manchester, current world heavyweight champ Tyson Fury lives in Morecambe with his wife Paris and their six children - with another on the way. In September 2015, he expressed an interest in running as an independent candidate to be the MP for Morecambe and Lunesdale, but the plan never materialised. Named after American boxer Mike Tyson, who was the heavyweight world champion at the time, Tyson was born three months premature and weighed just 1 pound and wasn't expected to survive.Although born in Manchester, current world heavyweight champ Tyson Fury lives in Morecambe with his wife Paris and their six children - with another on the way.

Fury said: “Happy St George’s Day. Of course, it’s an anniversary for me today.

“It’s a year since I knocked out Dillian Whyte at Wembley in front of 94,000 people in London. So, I’m going to celebrate today with 15 rounds of boxing in the gym. Come on!

Tyson was expected to fight in July and December last year but when the negotiations for clashes against Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk halted, it was unclear who he would take on next.

Boxing promoter Eddie Hearn recently hinted that Tyson could also fight Andy Ruiz Jr this year.

Speaking to Boxing King Media, Eddie was asked about Tyson’s next opponent, and despite not even being The Gypsy King’s promoter, he said: “Andy Ruiz, July 22nd”.
