Tyson Fury has been bestowed with the title of the world’s sexiest athlete. The accolade was determined based on data collected by Illicitencounters.com, a platform known for its discreet content. The data incorporates responses from 2,000 women in the UK who were tasked with rating 30 renowned and currently active male sports figures on a scale of 1 to 10, evaluating their “sexiness” or “affair factor.”
Tyson Fury’s reaction to being voted the ‘most sexiest sportsman’ was captured and shared on social media, reflecting his amusement and gratitude for the unexpected honor.
Surpassing notable figures such as Conor McGregor, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Lionel Messi, Tyson Fury secured the top spot on the list compiled by U.S. Sun. The top ten athletes in the data are as follows:
- Tyson Fury
- Anthony Joshua
- Travis Kelce
- Lewis Hamilton
- Cristiano Ronaldo
- Erling Braut Haaland
- Jack Grealish
- Rory McIlory
- Lionel Messi
- Conor McGregor
During a press event, Tyson Fury humorously remarked, “Sexiest sportsman alive, never say never people, always believe in yourself. If you’re fat and you’re bald, you’re probably going to get laid. Get up!” Seizing the opportunity, he playfully teased his younger brother, Tommy Fury, for his appearance on Love Island in 2019, humorously calling him out as “Number 13.”
This positive acknowledgment follows Tyson Fury’s recent split-decision victory over former UFC heavyweight titleholder Francis Ngannou in Riyadh. Looking ahead, Fury is slated for a significant title unification bout against Oleksandr Usyk on February 17, taking place once again in Saudi Arabia. The upcoming clash is highly anticipated, given Fury’s track record and the prestige associated with title unification.
Tyson Fury’s dual success in the ring and as the ‘world’s sexiest athlete’ adds another dimension to his dynamic persona, showcasing his charisma beyond the boxing realm.
