Revealed: Tyson Fury died three times in incubator as premature baby

Tyson Fury stops Deontay Wilder with brutal 11th round knockout to retain WBC heavyweight title CO

Tyson Fury’s wife Paris has spoken about how her husband “died three times” after being born seven weeks premature.

Mum-of-six Paris revealed that the boxing champ was named after Mike Tyson for his fighting spirit while in hospital as a newborn.

Speaking on the Parenting Hell podcast, the 31-year-old shared: “He was born seven weeks premature.

“He was really premature. He died three times in the incubators. His mum had a real bad time when she had him.

“They said to him… he’s a fighter. That’s how he got the name Tyson. His brothers all got old fashioned traditional names but he was named after Mike Tyson.

“It’s an amazing story. A lot of people think that Tyson’s name isn’t his real name
but his name all his life was Tyson Luke Fury.”

During the same podcast, Paris revealed the reason she and Tyson named all their boys Prince – and their adorable nickname for baby Tyson.

The pair are parents to Venezuela, 12, Prince John James, nine, Prince Tyson II, four, Valencia, three, and Athena, who was born in August.

Recalling the birth of Prince Tyson II and discussing her naming process, Paris said: “I was high on the gas and air! [I said] We’ve got to call him Prince. So we’ve got Prince, Tyson and Adonis, but they are all Prince.”

But, admitting that it felt “surreal” to call little Tyson by his name, Paris added: “For a long while he got [called] Tutti. Now we’ve got to stop that. Eventually he is going to turn into a big guy and Tutti isn’t right.”

Boxer Tyson, 33, who’s known as The Gypsy King, previously opened up about the names – but he had a much simpler reason behind them. He said: “I’m a king and they’re princes until they earn their rightful name.”

Earlier this year, just a day after he and Paris welcomed Athena, Tyson revealed she’d been taken into intensive care.

He wrote on Instagram: “Massive thanks for all the messages and support.

“The baby is in a stable position and doing well – hopefully she comes out of ICU today. Please keep baby Athena in your prayers. Paris is doing great. God bless.”

Paris later told how Athena was born with a fast heartbeat of 300 beats a minute as well as lots of other complications.

She told OK! magazine: “They put her on tablets to slow her heart down and when they took her off the tube, they thought it was going to be normal. But I think the accumulation of sedatives, painkillers, beta blockers for her heart and everything was just too much.

“She was in my arms and she stopped breathing and became completely unresponsive. Her heart rate was fading away – she was dying in my arms.

“They took her off me, put her on the table and resuscitated her. Tyson came running in. It was horrific. They managed to get her heart going and everything stabilised.”

UCL: Okafor strike sees Salzburg to historic win over Sevilla

Noah Okafor 211208 G1050

Noah Okafor scored the only goal as RB Salzburg claimed a 1-0 victory over 10-man Sevilla at the Red Bull Arena on Wednesday to progress to the knockout stages of the Champions League for the first time in their history.

Salzburg finished as runners-up in Group G with 10 points from their six matches, one behind pool winners Lille. Sevilla ended in third place and will play in the Europa League playoff round.

The first half had little goal-mouth action but the game burst into life after the break as Salzburg were helped by a second yellow card for Sevilla’s key midfielder Joan Jordan on 65 minutes.

The match was played behind closed doors without fans due to heightened COVID-19 restrictions in Austria, so the hosts were unable to celebrate their achievement with their supporters.

For two sides with reputations as attacking teams, it took 35 minutes of cagey football for the first shot on target as Ivan Rakitic warmed the palms of Salzburg goalkeeper Philipp Kohn.

It was the only occasion where either keeper was worked in the first half, though Sevilla defender Jules Kounde headed wide from a corner with the best chance of the opening period.

Sevilla should have been ahead minutes after the break when Munir El Haddadi had a free header six yards from goal but saw his effort come back of the crossbar.

It was a big chance the visitors would rue missing as Salzburg went up the other end and scored with an excellent team goal.

They finally managed to string passes together and Karim Adeyemi was worked into space on the left. His low cross into the box was turned in by Swiss forward Okafor.

Sevilla’s night got worse on 65 minutes when Jordan received a deserved second booking for pulling back the pacey Adeyemi and they were left to find two goals with 10 men.

Salzburg were able to comfortably hold out to the end, with Rakitic’s first half shot the only one Sevilla, who are second in Spain’s LaLiga, could muster on target.

Clinical Lille beat Wolfsburg to reach UCL last 16 and top Group G

Burak Yilmaz 211208 G1050

Lille reached the knockout stage of the Champions League for the second time when they claimed an emphatic 3-1 win at Wolfsburg and top spot in Group G on Wednesday.

The French champions needed a draw to advance but they played with ambition to end up with 11 points from six games, one ahead of RB Salzburg with goals by Burak Yilmaz, Jonathan David and Angel Gomes.

Wolfsburg, who scored a consolation goal through Renato Steffen, finished bottom of the group on five points and are eliminated from all European competitions.

The German side barely threatened while Lille, who have had a see-saw Ligue 1 season, made the most of their chances in front of barely 6 000 fans.

Jocelyn Gourvennec’s side had picked up only two points in their first three group games but they found their groove in a perfect return phase that put them on the brink of qualification ahead of kickoff.

They duly delivered to join fellow Ligue 1 club Paris St Germain into the last 16, which they had not reached since the 2006-07 season, when they were knocked out by Manchester United.

They went ahead in the 11th minute when Yilmaz netted with a left-footed effort after being set up by Nanitamo Ikone at the end of a quick counter-attack.

Wolfsburg stepped up a gear after the break but it was Lille who found the back of the net again in the 72nd minute after a quick combination between Gomes and David had put the hosts’ defence off balance.

Canada striker David is the first Lille player to score in three consecutive Champions League matches.

Five minutes later, Gomes, who had come on as a 68th-minute substitute, wrapped it up with a right-footed shot courtesy of Ikone’s second assist of the night.

Steffen pulled one back with a nice 20-metre strike one minute from time but it was too little, too late for Wolfsburg.

Barcelona crashed out of the Champions League following a 3-0 defeat at Bayern Munich on Wednesday, failing to make it past the group stage of the competition for the first time since the 2000-01 season.

First-half goals from Thomas Mueller and Leroy Sane put the Germans, who won all six matches to top Group E, firmly in the driving seat before Jamal Musiala tapped in the third just past the hour.

Barcelona had advanced to at least the round of 16 every time they competed in the Champions League since 2001 but will continue in the second tier Europa League after ending up third in the group. Benfica qualified as group runners-up with a win over bottom club Dynamo Kyiv.

Barca, who made not a single chance in the second half and scored just twice in six group games, have lost their last two matches in all competitions following new coach Xavi’s first defeat in charge of the side by Real Betis on Saturday.
