‘I’ve Been Bashed Around for Years’- Tyson Fury’s Brother Talks About His Struggles

October 30, 2020 9:01 am

WBC champion Tyson Fury’s brother Tommy Fury is following in his footsteps as the latter is also undefeated in his three-fight old professional career. While Tommy Fury has a long way to cover in the sport, he is already making an impact with his performance and charisma.

Apart from being Tyson Fury’s brother and a charismatic young boxer, Tommy Fury is also an internet sensation. That said, he might be the next big superstar of the sport if he continues to dominate his opponents inside the ring.  However, a lot of boxers believe that Tommy doesn’t have the same caliber as ‘The Gypsy King’, as he has never actually been pushed to the corner.

That said, the younger Fury has recently opened up on his training days from the past. As per him, several heavyweights bashed him and he knows how to come back stronger from a knockout.

Tyson Fury’s cousin Tommy Fury has seen a lot of dark days

Frank Warren had recently posted a glimpse of Tommy Fury’s recent interview via Twitter. The young British boxer has shared a lot of details about his boxing career. This included his training days alongside Tyson Fury and Thomas.

Talking about it, he said, “He (Thomas) is a big guy, 6’6’’, 18 and a half stone. I was sparring him when I was 14-15 years or 16 and like everyone thinks, oh he is tipping around, topping, and learning. That was nothing of the sort. Strict instructions written there, try knock his head clean off”.

He added, “I’ve been bashed around for years so I know what’s inside of me… My Dad always says ‘if you’re a jacket. You’re a jacket… I will never jack… I would sooner be knocked clean out unconscious in the ring than say I can’t get up.”

Riding on a three-fight win streak, Tommy Fury will hope to make it four in a row. However, his opponent is not yet finalized. Meanwhile, Tyson Fury is also yet to be booked. The brothers might return to action together on the same card. No wonder fight fans are excited.
