Fury and Paris met around 12 years ago at a wedding of mutual friends when she was just 15.

The self-styled Gypsy King fighter has plenty of Doncaster connections – from getting married here to Christmas shopping trips to B&M.

Fury grew up in Manchester in a traveller family. His wife Paris grew up in a traveller family in Doncaster.

The pair met again by chance at Paris's 16th birthday party and took up together, going to the cinema and ice skating every weekend.

The pair tied the knot at St Peter In Chains Catholic Church in Chequer Road in 2008. The wedding attracted 400 guests. It was followed by a reception at The Stables in High Melton. 

The pair said they did not sleep together before marriage in keeping with the traditional travelling community.

The couple have a luxury home in Morecambe but regularly visit family in Doncaster.

In December 2015, the fighter stunned shoppers in the Doncaster Church View branch of bargain store B&M when he popped in to do a spot of Christmas shopping.

He posed for photos with staff and was later spotted walking through Doncaster town centre, chatting and posing for selfies with fans.
