Jacob Rees-Mogg was born into the Establishment, the fifth child of former Times editor William Rees-Mogg, who was appointed a life peer in 1988. Jacob has stated, ‘I was dedicated to my father and I still mourn him.’
Tyson’s father, John, served as a role model for him as a bare-knuckle boxer in the 1980s, competing at a professional level.
After watching how the infant, who was born three months preterm, would work his little fists as though he were boxing, Fury Snr named his kid after his hero Mike Tyson.
Tyson, who comes from a family of nomads, says his father instilled in him the virtue of discipline. ‘On Friday and Saturday mornings, as well as Sunday mornings, my father had me working pretty late.’
His home life, on the other hand, was less steady. ‘My mum and father were always screaming, punching one other,’ he added.
In 2011, John Fury was sentenced to 11 years in jail for gouging out a man’s eye during a fight.
