Roman Fury family tree – Who is the newest fighting Fury related to? | Boxing | Sport


Tyson Fury’s half-brother, Roman, will make his boxing debut next month after shedding six stone since taking up the sport. The 25-year-old has no amateur experience and only started boxing during lockdown but will make his professional debut on VIP Boxing’s card at the Winter Gardens in Blackpool on Saturday, September 10.

Speaking to the promotion after a sparring session with up-and-coming middleweight prospect Tom Rafferty, Roman said: “If it’s nothing else it’s a story. How many people do you know that jump into it right at the deep end, no experience or nothing, and do well for themselves? But that’s the challenge and I like a challenge.

“And as you’ve seen today I’m not just about fighting anybody that’s no good I want to get in the best so it improves me and that’s what I’m going to do. I was in there with a good lad today, a lot more experienced than me.

“I’ve always been messing around on the pads with my dad and my brothers from a young age, but actually sparring and fighting, I’ve not got much experience. So that’s what I’ve started to do the last year, year and a half.”

Roman may be a novice in the ring but he does come from a fighting family. Tyson and Tommy Fury are amongst the most recognisable names on his family tree but there are a whole host of others and here Express Sport lists them all.
