Tommy Fury disclosed his prolonged battle with a hand injury, opting for surgery to address the issue that plagued him for four years. Despite training and fighting through “extreme pain,” he managed to conceal the struggle until now. Tommy shared on Instagram, “For the last four weeks of my last camp, I trained solely with my left hand until fight night.” His surgery, long postponed, is seen as crucial for healing and advancing his boxing career.

In response to the announcement, Tommy’s girlfriend, Molly-Mae, expressed support with heart emojis, while followers shared empathy and encouragement. Looking ahead to 2024, Tommy is eager for his recovery journey, anticipating a return to boxing at full capacity. Additionally, discussions about a rematch between Tommy Fury and KSI, initiated by Tommy’s father John, add another layer to the boxer’s narrative.

Rivalry that could turn into a collaboration

In the aftermath of KSI’s controversial loss to Tommy Fury, boxing promoter Kalle Sauerland is exploring the possibility of a rematch. The disputed points decision in October intensified the animosity between the two fighters.

Sauerland, involved in negotiations last year, plans to initiate discussions with John Fury, Tommy’s father, in the coming weeks. He acknowledges the familial ties within the sport, stating, “We talk to the Fury’s a lot.” Despite their rivalry in the ring, Sauerland highlights the successful collaboration between the promoters.

Reflecting on the lucrative pay-per-view sales of their previous bout, estimated at over £25 million, Sauerland expresses interest in a potential rerun. However, he acknowledges the unpredictable nature of influencer boxing, emphasizing, “I can’t read this space.” He concludes, “From a traditional sense, the rematch would absolutely make sense. But is it going to happen in this space? We’ll see.”

While KSI took a hiatus after his initial defeat, Sauerland anticipates his return to the ring this year, teasing potential matchups with Jake Paul, Conor McGregor, or another clash with Tommy Fury. The evolving landscape of influencer boxing adds an element of unpredictability to these future endeavors.
