The making of Tommy Fury…
Fighting is in the blood when it comes to the Fury family and Tommy’s amateur career began with a win on October 10th, 2015, when the teenager was just 15.
Following in the footsteps of a famous father or sibling brings its own unique pressure and it’s fair to say we have yet to see anything to suggest his own career will come anywhere near that of his elder half-brother Tyson.
Perhaps dipping his toes into crossover boxing against Jake Paul and KSI is evidence that even he believes that fighting as a professional boxer in the light-heavyweight division could lead to embarrassment.
With good looks, a six-pack, money in the bank and a beautiful family why bother with the torturous demands of professional boxing when more money can be made and with less threat to your health in the world of Misfits.
The other Fury…
Making yourself heard and known amongst a wild bunch of relatives was always going to be a challenge of its own for Tommy Fury.
Deciding to become a professional boxer is one way to let actions be louder than words and in December 2022 he made his debut under the Queensberry Promotions banner, on a night when Josh Warrington and Carl Frampton went to war against one another.
After putting pen to paper in his first promotional deal Fury said: “I don’t want to be fighting people I can easily knock over, I want to be progressed by stepping up in level every time I step into the ring.”
His first opponent Jevgenijs Andrejevs had won 10 out of 115 contests prior to facing Fury.
Number 11 was out of his reach after losing on points to Fury.
Love Island expedition…
Boxing took a back seat for Fury when Love Island came calling in 2019.
Season five of ITV’s reality dating show featured Fury and his future partner Molly-Mae Hague. The pair finished as runners-up in the series.
Fury became known for memorable quotes and made-up words during his time on the show including, “Equivalates” and “If you weren’t meant to follow your gut, you wouldn’t have one”.
Moments such as these endeared him to viewers even more.
Back in the ring…
Now a celebrity, Fury got back to the grind of training and fighting as he looked to establish himself as a genuine light-heavyweight prospect.
A lack of amateur experience can allow for less than modest opposition in the early days as a professional.
Tommy was learning his trade but never has there been a performance which has convinced fans that he has a future in the sport, and particularly in such a competitive division.
On April 23, 2022, both Tyson and Tommy appeared on the same card at opposite ends of the bill.
While the WBC Heavyweight champion would top the bill in a successful title defence against Dillian Whyte in front of 94,000 fans.
Earlier in the evening when most fans are at the bar or still en-route to the venue Tommy dealt with Daniel Bocianski winning by decision over six rounds.
After months and months of talk and postponements Jake Paul finally got his hands on Tommy Fury inside a boxing ring.
Their pay-per-view professional bout was the headline act in Diriyah where both men went the distance.
For all of Paul’s confidence and verbal diarrhoea Fury came out on top to win a split decision.
Another win for the Fury’s and Jake Paul’s first defeat which coincided with the first time he faced a professional fighter.
