Tommy Fury gets the chance to prove he is more than just a reality TV star on Saturday night at Wembley. Tyson Fury’s half-brother has been selected to be on the undercard of the Gypsy King’s big British heavyweight clash against Dillian Whyte.
The former Love Island star came to the British public’s attention during the 2019 edition of the hit ITV2 series.
However, he has serious ambitions to make it as a boxer and follow in Tyson’s footsteps.
In December last year, he was set to fight with professional YouTuber Jake Paul but pulled out due to a bacterial infection and a broken rib.
But he has fully recovered and is ready to get his boxing career back on track at Wembley on Saturday before Tyson fights Whyte.
