Meet 18-year-old Tyson Fury, a young British heavyweight boxer destined for greatness.
“He’s got everything: good looks, good attitude, confidence, skill, size and youth”
In the film, young Fury predicts he will be Heavyweight Boxing Champ by 2015. In November 2015, Fury does just that when he defeats long reigning champion Wladimir Klitschko to become the lineal, WBA (Super), IBF,WBO, IBO and The Ring magazine unified heavyweight champion. Fury was subsequently stripped of the IBF title for being unable to grant a fight to their mandatory challenger, Vyacheslav Glazkov, due to agreeing to a rematch with Klitschko.
