Is Tyson Fury Gay?

The Gypsy King has absolutely dominated men in the ring for the last half a decade, but does he like to dominate them elsewhere? Is Tyson Fury gay? We’ll delve into it and get a concrete answer in this post.

Tyson Fury made homophobic comments

Back in 2015, Tyson Fury kicked up a global sh*tstorm when he made homophobic comments along with a few misogynistic and offensive comments about religion just for good measure.

The heavyweight superstar said in an interview that “there are only three things that need to be accomplished before the devil comes home: homosexuality being legal in countries, one of them is abortion, and the other is pedophilia. Who would have thought in the 50s and 60s that the first two would be legalized?”

The backlash against these comments was massive. Fury was openly booed when he won 4th place for Sports Personality of the Year, and he was almost removed from being eligible to win it after 140,000 people signed a petition demanding he be removed from consideration.

Fury later apologized, saying that his comments were “tongue in cheek” and that he hadn’t meant to hurt anybody.

Later, when challenged openly in a pub about his views by gay man Paul Cole, Fury embraced him, kissed him on both cheeks, and denied he was a homophobe. The man went on to tell British tabloid The Sun that he’d changed his mind about Fury, and that he was a “big friendly giant.”

Is Tyson Fury bisexual?

Fury is devoutly Christian and there’s no evidence that he is bisexual. Now, we know what you’re thinking…claiming the lord publicly has been a cover for many who are gay or swing both ways, but in this case, there’s just no concrete evidence that Fury is even remotely attracted to men. Sure, he likes to smash them, but in a completely different way than you’re thinking.

Tyson Fury dating history

Unlike many other sports stars such as boxing legend Mike Tyson, Fury doesn’t have a colorful dating history. He’s been married to his wife, Paris Fury, since 2009. The couple has six children.

Here’s what we know about Furys’ relationship with his wife.

Love at First Sight

Tyson Fury and Paris met when they were just teenagers at a mutual friend’s wedding. Tyson was 17, and Paris was 15 at the time. The couple instantly connected and began their romantic journey together. As Tyson’s boxing career developed, Paris stood by his side, offering unwavering support and love.

Tying the Knot

In 2009, Tyson and Paris made their commitment official by tying the knot. The couple got married in a traditional ceremony in Doncaster, England, surrounded by friends and family. Their love story is one of dedication, as they have continuously supported each other through the ups and downs of Tyson’s career, including his battles with mental health and substance abuse issues.

Growing Family

Tyson and Paris have built a beautiful family together, having six children: Prince John James, Venezuela, Prince Tyson Fury II, Valencia Amber, Adonis Amaziah, and Athena. The couple’s devotion to their children and each other is evident, with Tyson often praising Paris for her strength and resilience as a mother and wife. Paris, in turn, has supported Tyson through his darkest moments, helping him make a remarkable comeback in the world of boxing.

Fury sparked controversy with homophobic comments in 2015

Fury’s record on LGBTQ+ rights and issues is mixed. While he has made some controversial statements in the past, he has also shown support for the LGBTQ+ community at times.

Controversial statements: In 2015, Fury made a series of controversial statements in interviews, which included offensive remarks about LGBTQ+ people. These statements led to widespread criticism and calls for him to be removed from the shortlist for the BBC Sports Personality of the Year award. Fury later apologized for his remarks.

Supporting LGBTQ+ charities: In 2018, the Gypsy King donated his entire £7 million purse from his fight against Deontay Wilder to charities, including LGBTQ+ organizations. While it is unclear how much of the money specifically went to LGBTQ+ charities, his willingness to donate to them indicates some level of support for the community.

Allyship with LGBTQ+ boxers: The boxing champ has expressed support for fellow boxers who identify as LGBTQ+. For example, he has been supportive of Swedish boxer Patricia Berghult, who identifies as a lesbian, stating in an interview that he respects her as a fighter and a person.

While Fury’s past remarks about the LGBTQ+ community were controversial, he has since demonstrated a willingness to support the community through charitable donations and support for fellow LGBTQ+ athletes. It is essential to recognize both his past controversial statements and his more recent actions when considering his stance on LGBTQ+ rights and issues.

If we were ever sure a celeb was not gay, it’s Tyson Fury. As far as the evidence goes, he’s straight and in a loving, committed, heterosexual marriage.
