The Fury family were out in force to celebrate Tyson and Tommy Fury’s boxing victories after they both triumphed in the ring at Wembley Stadium on Saturday night. A jubilant Tyson confirmed that he was retiring from boxing after his knockout win over Dillian Whyte in front of a sell-out crowd of 94,000.
The Wythenshawe fighter, 33, triumphed in the sixth round in front of a crowd of 94,000 people to retain his WBC heavyweight title. Earlier Tommy, 22, defeated Daniel Bocianski on his older brother’s undercard.
The Manchester siblings celebrated with a brunch, joined by loved-ones including their father John, Tyson’s wife Paris and Tommy’s girlfriend Molly-Mae Hague. “Family celebration,” wrote proud Paris, 32, who has six children with her sportsman husband as she shared a photo of the family smiling together on her Instagram Stories.

They were joined by Tyson’s American trainer SugarHill Steward who has worked with him since 2019. SugarHill as been working with Tyson and his team in Morecambe and the two appear to have created a strong bond together. Tyson requested a chair be pulled up to the table so that Steward could participate in Wednesday’s press conference.
Paris shared a video of a tasty-looking plate of pancakes and strawberries as they tucked in after working up an appetite with all the excitement the night before. And over on Molly-Mae’s Instagram the 22-year-old former Love Island star posted a picture of herself with a beaming Tyson with the caption “good morninnn” along with a trophy emoji and victory hand emoji.
The group headed from Wembley to The Three Horseshoes pub and restaurant in Letchmore Heath, Hertfordshire. They were greeted by excited fans waiting to meet Tyson and Tommy with boxing gloves for them to sign.
An onlooker told us: “There were crowds of people waiting outside and people holding boxing gloves. Tyson came out and he spent an hour signing autographs and having pictures taken with fans and he held a baby. Tommy came out shortly after.
“Tyson was on great form. You wouldn’t think he had been through a fight the night before. You would have expected to find them in central London not my local pub.”
Doting dad Tyson said after the fight that he would be sticking to a retirement promise he had made to his wife. Speaking to BT Sport he said: “I promised my lovely wife Paris that after the third fight with Deontay Wilder that would be it and I meant it.
“I then got offered to fight at Wembley and I thought I owed it to the fans, to every person in the United Kingdom, to come here and fight. Now it’s all done I have to be a man of my word. I think this is it, it might be the final curtain for The Gypsy King and what a way to go out!”
Paris, who married her teenage sweetheart in 2008 handed over to ‘next leading lady’ Molly-Mae Hague as they posed together backstage at Wembley. “The next leading lady there @mollymae with her @tommyfury winning tonight a beauty inside and out,” she wrote as she shared a snap of the pair on her Instagram Stories. And Molly-Mae replied with a crying emoji: “My leading lady always.”
Model Molly-Mae, creative director for the Manchester-based global fashion brand PrettyLittleThing, looked sensational in an elegant one-shoulder black dress. And Paris looked stunning in a white cropped top and matching feather trim cropped trousers and jacket with metallic heels with chain detail.
Speaking with BT Sport Box Office she spoke of her pride over her man’s win. “I’m so proud and so relieved,” she said. “We can relax and be a couple again. I haven’t seen him for two months.”
Molly-Mae addressed how she copes with seeing her man in the ring. “I don’t watch him I watch the screen,” she admitted. That’s my way of dealing with it. To watch him in the flesh feels much harder so I watch him on the screen.”
She added laughing: “I’ve got nail marks on my arm where I’ve been digging in. It’s just horrible. I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy honestly.”
Molly-Mae said the couple are now looking forward to heading to America for a holiday where they will be celebrating his 23rd birthday. “He’s written me a list of all the places he wants to eat at,” she said.
