Tommy Fury will make his pro-debut next week.
That’s right, Tyson Fury’s brother will be stepping into the ring on December 22 at the Manchester Arena on the undercard of Josh Warrington’s IBF featherweight title defence against Carl Frampton.
Whilst he may be on the undercard, his surname alone will ensure that he is very much in the spotlight in Manchester.
The youngster certainly has the biggest of boots to fill too.
The 19-year-old signed with promoter Frank Warren earlier in the year and is being trained by none other than Ricky Hatton himself, who was also on the Tyson Fury coaching team for the infamous fight against Deontay Wilder.
A video of Tommy Fury’s training was released back in November showing such speed for a very big man… remind you of anyone?
Young Fury’s speed has surely been inspired by his big brother who, throughout his career, has been renowned for incredible speed and movement.
In the video, young Fury endures some pad work with the former light-welterweight British champion.
A combination of swift uppercuts seen at the end of the video particularly caught the eye of boxing supporters who are all excited by the prospect another Fury may fulfil.
In fact, the video that was put out on the BT Sport Twitter page praised the ability that young Fury has already showed.
“Tyson Fury’s brother has a great mix of power and speed.”
The video is substantial evidence of this. Though, fans were quick to point out that pads don’t hit back and are aware that they won’t get to see the true power and speed of Fury until his fight in a week’s time.
He is the third instalment of the Fury family to take to the sport.
Along with Tyson, Hughie Fury has also braced the world of boxing and currently holds the British heavyweight title. Hughie is the Gypsy King’s cousin perhaps proving that boxing runs through the Fury genetics.
Despite all of fame that obviously surrounds him, Tommy Fury has claimed that he wants to make something of and from himself.
After a relatively short but successful amateur career, Fury has made the considerable step up to the pro divisions at some pace.
An undercard at the Manchester Arena is not the worst place to start of what promises to be an interesting career at least.
