Tommy Fury, Tyson's Brother, Aims To Be a World Champion

Tommy Fury - the younger brother of former unified heavyweight champion Tyson - has joined the professional ranks after signing a promotional deal with Frank Warren.

The 19-year-old will start out at light-heavyweight under the guidance of trainer Ricky Hatton after struggling to find opponents in the amateurs.

Fury's debut will be on December 22 in Manchester as part of the undercard for Josh Warrington's IBF featherweight title defence against Carl Frampton.

"I want to be world champion, I think if you're turning pro that has to be what you are aiming to achieve," 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.

"I want to be fighting someone who wants to fight me back and try and make things competitive."

Tommy's first outing as a pro will take place three weeks after elder sibling Tyson challenges Deontay Wilder for the WBC heavyweight belt in Los Angeles.


IN OTHER NEWS:  Danny Ball is hoping to be in 7th heaven as he steps into the ring for his seventh outing since turning professional last summer.

The 22 year-old former white collar star takes on evergreen Kevin McCauley at Walsall Town Hall on Saturday October 27, on BCB Promotions’ show, a Halloween spooktacular, titled ‘Things That Go Bump in the Night.’

Ball is wary of the threat of teak tough veteran McCauley but has set his sights on Area honours, at least, in 2019 after being inspired by fellow BCB fighters.

 “I like to stay active and getting the rounds and wins under my belt are a massive confidence boost,” he admitted. “My last opponent, Danny little, was a tough nut to crack but I felt in control of the fight and very fit.

“I think I hurt him in the last round but respect to him he turns up week in week out, so you can’t say a bad word about him.”

Is this the one that was pumped up on steroids at his early teens to get him bigger?
