Tyson Fury is a popular man, so it makes sense that the internet is awash with questions about him. Who will he fight next? What’s his net worth? Is he on Twitter? AAAH.

Calm down, we have all the answers to the most searched for Tyson Fury questions, so if you’ve ever wondered anything about the ‘Gypsy King’ chances are you’ll find the answer below.

Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua

Mention Tyson Fury and the name Anthony Joshua won’t be too far behind. Of course a potential showdown between the two has been derailed somewhat by Joshua’s loss to the former unified cruiserweight champion of the world, Oleksandr Usyk, but if you think that’s the last you’ll hear of a Fury versus Joshua fight, think again.

Joshua himself has already said he’d fight Fury even if he’d didn’t manage to regain his WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO belts in the rematch against Usyk. “The belts are fun, it’s great, it’s legacy but with or without the belts I’ll fight whoever,” said Joshua. “The road to undisputed is a nice title to have and a nice title to chase, but would you still watch it without the belts? That’s the main thing, you’ve got two competitive fighters in the ring, from UK soil that just want to go toe-to-toe.”

Tyson Fury’s promoter Frank Warren has also said that Fury against Joshua is a huge fight, regardless of what belts are on the line. “I do believe the public buys into that fight even if AJ isn’t champion,” Warren told the BBC. “If he did fight Tyson he would have a lot to prove and I do think the public would buy into it.”

Tyson Fury’s Net Worth

There was a time when boxing’s heavyweight champion was the most powerful and respected man in all of sport. Period. Too many belts mean the title’s significance has been diluted, but the paydays are as big as ever, and Tyson Fury has cashed in.

Winning the second fight against Deontay Wilder means that Fury is expected to take a 60-40 split of revenues from their third bout, which could total around £22m. Meanwhile, according to the Mirror, Fury’s company accounts show he banked £57.35m between February 2019 and 2020, while his business turned over £63.9m of revenue during that period, with a profit of £57.9m, which leaves Fury with a total fortune of around £109m.

And what does Fury do with all that money? Well, he lives in a five-bed, four-bathroom home in Morecambe that is worth over £550,000, according to Zoopla and The Sun. The same newspaper also reports that Fury owns a Marbella mansion, estimated to cost around £6million, and a string of cars including a red Ferrari Portofino and a Rolls Royce Dawn.

Tyson Fury’s Next Fight

We know that Tyson Fury’s next fight will be against Deontay Wilder at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. We also know that the fight will begin at around 4am BST and is available on BT Sport Box Office in the UK.

What we don’t know is who Tyson Fury’s will fight after Wilder. If he wins, then there’s an obvious next matchup to be made between the winner of the Joshua Usyk rematch. Fury has also talked about fighting WBC contender Dillian Whyte in December. In his own mind it seems Fury has a plan to have five more fights. “Then I might take two years off, go nuts again and then come back at 37 and do it all again because you can’t write me off,” Fury joked.

Tyson Fury’s Height

Standing at 6ft9, Tyson Fury is a huge, hulking man, and his size is one of the things that makes him such a dangerous fighter. Fury has a reach advantage over all of his heavyweight opponents, and is 3-and-a-half inches taller than his opponent on Saturday, Wilder.

Having said that, Fury's height isn't his only advantage, and he's often credited with having the movement of a much smaller fighter.

Is Tyson Fury on Twitter?

It seems lots of people are searching for Tyson Fury’s Twitter account. To those people yes, he is on Twitter, and you can find his account here. Expect to see lot of retweets that show Fury in action. You’re welcome.

Tyson Fury’s Age

Considering how much he’s crammed into his life so far, it’s slightly surprising that Tyson Fury is still only 33 years old. He was 28 when he beat Wladimir Klitschko to claim the WBA, WBO, IBF, IBO and The Ring heavyweight titles. He was 29 when he vacated those titles, and was 31 when he won the WBC and Ring boxing titles from Deontay Wilder.

Tyson Fury’s Book

Tyson Fury hasn't got just one book out, he's got two. His autobiography, called Behind the Mask, explores how he overcame his battles with “obesity, anxiety, drink and drug abuse, depression and despair,” while his self-help book is designed to help people transform their “mind, body and goals,” and is called The Furious Method.

“Love him or loathe him, there is no denying the immense sporting and cultural impact of Tyson Fury. Behind the Mask is the candid, combative memoir of a prodigiously talented but stridently outspoken and troubled individual, all recounted in the author’s inimitably dynamic style,” reads Waterstones’ synopsis of Behind the Mask.

Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder

Finally, after they’ve searched for Fury's age, net worth and book people get around to taking a look at what's happening between Fury and Wilder. Perhaps that says something about the public’s appetite for a third fight, after Fury’s convincing win last time out.

But, while the fight between Fury and Wilder is often promoted a hero versus villain encounter, in the UK at least, the two have more in common than you may think.

Both Fury and Wilder have spoken in the past about their mental health battles and both have openly discussed their suicidal thoughts.

Speaking to Joe Rogan, Fury described how having reached the top of the mountain and conquered boxing’s glamour division he felt an emptiness that contributed to him speeding his Ferrari towards a bridge. “I didn’t care about nothing,” he said. “I just wanted to die so bad. I gave up on life.”

Years earlier, Wilder had sat at home with a pistol sat in his lap and thoughts of ending it all in his mind. He explained how before finding success with boxing, he was working three jobs to pay the overwhelming medical bills for his baby daughter, Naieya, who had been born with spina bifida. “You feel like the only way to put an end to this is to take your life,” Wilder told BT Sport. “If you’re dead and gone, you don’t have to worry about these things. You don’t think about how much it will affect your love ones, and those problems that you’re growing through are going to carry on to your family.”

Both, thankfully, conquered their demons, but their openness about the subject has doubtless saved many more lives.
