Heavyweight champion Tyson Fury is not only focused on his own career but also teaching his children to box – as he’s worried about them being bullied.
Despite the inherent risks of boxing, Fury is actively teaching his sons, Prince, Tyson Jr (Tutty), and Adonis, how to box. His motivation behind this decision stems from his concern about them being bullied.
Fury anticipates that his children may face challenges and encounters with people who might want to harm them. The 34-year-old believes that learning how to defend themselves through boxing will empower them to face any potential threats.
“It’s really important because it isn’t going to be easy growing up as Tyson Fury’s son,” he is quoted by the Mirror as saying. “There’s going to be people trying to punch them in the face. All sorts of stuff.”

While Fury is determined to prepare his sons for the realities of the world, Prince remains sceptical about the sport's dangers. “Boxing is very dangerous,” he says. “Who can’t say that, where you are being punched in the face?”
In a new Netflix series called "At Home With The Furys", viewers get an intimate glimpse into Fury's life as a father and protector of his energetic and mischievous six-member family. The series was filmed before it emerged there is another Fury baby on the way.
As the series progresses, it becomes evident that Tyson Jr, at the age of six, may be the next Fury Gypsy King and a future conqueror of the boxing world. He exhibits determination and talent similar to his father's.

However, Prince also witnesses his dad's fights for the first time during the series and becomes inspired by his skills and achievements. The series also sheds light on Fury's expectations for his daughters, Venezuela, Valencia, and Athena.
Bringing a boyfriend home to meet their 6ft 9in self-proclaimed "King of the Chavs" father is a daunting prospect. The daughters, like their brothers, are not exempt from Tyson's high standards and aspirations.
Venezuela, who turns 13 during the series, struggles with the expectations placed upon her as a girl in the Traveller community. She clashes with her mother, Paris, over her outfit choice for her baby sister Athena's christening – "you’ve got an internet and a world that’s your oyster and next day delivery!” Paris cries.
Teaching Venezuela to cook becomes another point of contention between mother and daughter. Venezuela expresses her reluctance to conform to traditional gender roles and desires a different life for herself.
“I don’t want to be a wifey and cook dinners and clean and slave all day. No,” says Venezuela. “I’ll just sit at home.” Paris replies: “Are you just gonna live off your dad all your life?Are you gonna sponge? Cos you won’t be a proper person. You are just a privileged little brat!”
Despite his strictness, Fury says: “Being a parent is a very, very special and precious thing. No matter what you achieve in your life when that’s gone you’ve only got your family left.
"That’s why my biggest achievement is my wife and my kids. The rest of it? Here today, gone tomorrow.”
