Tyson Fury has said he slept with more than 500 women before getting married and changing his ways.
The Gypsy King regularly presents himself as a family man on social media nowadays, often sharing posts relating to his wife, Paris Fury, and children.
The couple got married in 2008 after meeting when they were teenagers, and over the years have welcomed six children together.
There is, however, one thing Fury wishes he could change from before he got married. Speaking to Boxing News Online in 2015, Fury said the 'only thing' he regrets is having sex before he tied the knot with Paris.
“I’m a liar, a cheater, a proud, vain person. Everything that’s bad I do or have done. We all make mistakes, don’t we?..." he said. "The only thing I ever regret in life is having sex before marriage. If I could erase that then my life would be practically perfect. I regret all the filth that you do with people. I must have had sex with over 500 women, more, I don’t know, I’ve lost count. But it’s pure filth and horribleness."
Looking back on his previous actions, Fury said he sees them as 'pure disgusting'.
"I’m not a religious person, but I like to help people and do good things. I’m stopping all the bad stuff."
The dad explained that he has sought to change himself for the benefit of his kids, explaining he stopped drinking and going out, and can now 'get up [and] go and take the kids somewhere on a Saturday morning rather than being in bed till 12 o’clock'.
Tyson has previously told the Mail Online he and Paris wanted 10 children, saying: "When time came for marriage, I asked her how many children she wanted. She said 10. I said that will do for me. Now we’ve decided to go for one more. Make it 11. Let’s have a mixed football team playing on the pitch at Morecambe."
The boxer described children in 2015 as 'happiness', saying: "They're a little piece of heaven, pure innocence, no badness at all.
"I don't discipline the kids," he continued. "My kids can do what they want, without breaking stuff up... I'd like to give my son an education rather than being a hustler. I don't expect my son [Prince] to follow in my footsteps. I think he's got to go to school, get a proper education and go from there."
After welcoming their youngest daughter, Athena, in 2021, Paris has since said she was rethinking the plan of 10 kids after their daughter spent two weeks in intensive care on a ventilator.
