Heavyweight boxer Tyson Fury was named after Mike Tyson, the world heavyweight champion when Fury was born in 1988. His surname Fury is also the perfect name for a fighter who also calls himself The Furious One and the Gypsy King due to his Traveller origins. His family has a long history in bare-knuckle fighting and both his father Gypsy John Fury and grandfather Tiger Gorman also fought as professionals. After turning professional in 2008, Tyson Fury became famous for his aggression both in the ring and in the Twitter sphere. Perhaps not as poetic as Muhammad Ali, his verbal jibes at his opponents always packed a punch. He is also a great showman, turning up to one press conference dressed as Batman. He loves to sing and courts notoriety with his outspoken views on homosexuality and other sensitive issues. These probably cost him the BBC Sports Personality of the Year in 2015. In the ring, though, he is unchallenged. In twenty-eight professional fights, he has won twenty-seven with just one controversial draw. At regional level he held the British and English heavyweight titles twice each, as well as the European, Commonwealth and Irish heavyweight titles. He held the ABA super-heavyweight title before turning professional.

The official inside story of the life, death and remarkable discovery of history´s most controversial monarch.On 22 August 1485 Richard III was killed at Bosworth Field, the last king of England to die in battle. His victorious opponent, Henry Tudor (the future Henry VII), went on to found one of our most famous ruling dynasties. Richard´s body was displayed in undignified fashion for two days in nearby Leicester and then hurriedly buried in the church of the Greyfriars. Fifty years later, at the time of the dissolution of the monasteries, the king´s grave was lost - its contents believed to be emptied into the river Soar and Richard III´s reputation buried under a mound of Tudor propaganda. Its culmination was Shakespeare´s compelling portrayal of a deformed and murderous villain, written over a hundred years after Richard´s death. Now - in an incredible find - Richard III´s remains have been uncovered beneath a car park in Leicester. The King´s Grave traces this remarkable journey. In alternate chapters, Philippa Langley, whose years of research and belief that she would find Richard in this exact spot inspired the project, reveals the inside story of the search for the king´s grave, and historian Michael Jones tells of Richard´s 15th-century life and death. The result is a compelling portrayal of one of our greatest archaeological discoveries, allowing a complete reevaluation of our most controversial monarch - one that discards the distortions of later Tudor histories and puts the man firmly back into the context of his times. 1.
