Tyson Fury's shorts gradually get smaller the bigger he becomes in boxing world with champ now even training in briefs

TYSON FURY'S shorts have got smaller and smaller the bigger the Gypsy King has become in boxing.

The Brit started his career wearing giant boxing shorts that fell way past his knees.



But the Brit has revealed more and more leg the closer he's got to becoming unified world champion.

Fury has even taken to training in his pants too!

The 33-year-old made his pro debut in December 2008 in Nottingham, on the undercard of Carl Froch vs Jean Pascal against Hungarian fighter Bela Gyongyos.

He won via first round TKO and his shorts were a world away from what we see him in now.

The all-white pair dropped down past his knees as he posed for cameras after his win.

Two-and-a-half years on and Fury fought Marcelo Luiz Nascimento in February 2011 at Wembley.



He struck a fifth round knock-out and sported a very similar white and gold pair of shorts although they did ride slightly higher up his leg – just above his knee.

After this fight, Fury's shorts designs started to get a little bit more elaborate.

He stopped Irishman Martin Rogan in five rounds in Belfast in 2012 with a fetching pair of 'above-the-knee' green and gold 'South Africa rugby' coloured shorts on.

His seventh round KO of Steve Cunningham in New York in 2013 saw the Gypsy King rock a green and white pair with much more thigh on show.

And the journey was as good as complete in his 2020 fight against Deontay Wilder – his second fight against the Bronze Bomber.

His black and dark green shorts were his shortest pair yet – ending midway down his thigh.

Fury has also caught the attention of boxing fans in recent years by training in his pants.

But as funny as the 6ft 9in heavyweight looks in his often skin-tight pants, there is a very real reason he does it.

The Gypsy King proudly started wearing the pants to represent Oddballs who support the fight against testicular cancer.

Fury first started doing so before his 2018 fight with Wilder which resulted in a draw.

He revealed at the time a close friend of his was diagnosed with testicular cancer and he was doing his bit to show support.

Fury said: "I wear these funky shorts in public a lot and I wore them today because they represent a company called Oddballs.

"Every penny spent on these pants goes to research to fight testicular cancer.

"A friend of mine went through it recently, and I want to spread awareness for him and this cause."
