The boxing Fury family suffered their first loss in over two years on Saturday night as 18 year-old Young Fury lost in his second professional contest in Sheffield.

Fury went down 39-37 to Bristol veteran Henry Smith, 35, at the Ponds Forge Arena. He became the first of three heavyweight fighters in the ranks to suffer a defeat in his career.

The other two, Tyson and Hughie are currently unbeaten since turning pro. Both have built themselves quite a reputation with some bruising victories along the way.

Tyson, who is world-ranked with the major organisations, is currently scheduled to fight Dereck ‘Del Boy’ Chisora in a rematch on November 29 in London.

Hughie is on his way back from injury and should be ready to return to action soon.


Light-middleweight Phill Fury was the last from the fighting siblings to record a reverse on his record. The 23 year-old lost to Lee Noble in a six-round points defeat in May 2012.

The final of the five family members, light-heavyweight Dempsey Fury, is currently 3-0. Dempsey made his debut in September last year.

Dempsey last graced the ring in April when beating Harry Matthews in Liverpool.

Young Fury had scored an impressive knockout when making his debut in Norwich last June.
