Love Island star Tommy Fury wants to make boxing family affair by beating Deontay Wilder's brother in ring like Tyson

TOMMY FURY wants to follow Tyson by having a pop at the Wilder family and battering Deontay’s brother.

Fury watched elder sibling Tyson annihilate the Bronze Bomber in February for the WBC heavyweight crown after their first bout was a draw.


While the trilogy fight hangs in the balance after Tyson got sick of Wilder’s excuses and found a new opponent in Agit Kabayel for December 5, light-heavyweight Tommy – who is set to fight an as-yet unnamed opponent on Friday – is happy to keep the bad blood bubbling by facing Wilder’s cruiserweight sibling Marsellos.

Heart-throb Tommy, 21, said: “I don’t want to look past Friday’s opponent but, if his brother wants the same as Deontay got, then he can get it.

“I see a lot of people tweeting about wanting to fight me but I never saw that before I went into Love Island so I know what they are after.

“If Marsellos Wilder is one of those then I will happily oblige. 

“My advice for him would be to keep quiet and stay in America where he can try to help his brother recover from what Tyson did to him, fair and square.”

Fans can see Tommy in action tomorrow night on the undercard of Mark Heffron vs Denzel Bentley live on Friday night, although his opponent is yet to be announced.

The younger Fury stole the hearts of the nation and stunning Molle-Mae Hague in the villa, showing off a mature head on a ripped young body.

The bubble was expected to burst as soon as the young couple got back to rain-soaked Blighty, as Tommy was thrown into the celeb spotlight.

“Love Island was great for me,” he said. “I think anyone of my age and in my position at the time would have gone on the show and done the same thing.

But the heavy-handed ace has only grown in popularity and the 3-0 fighter’s a-list relationship is only going from strength-to-strength too.

“Love Island was a great way to express myself and come out of Tyson’s shadow a little bit.

“Hopefully people see me now as a likeable boy next door who is trying to do the best with his life.”

But any fans that were hoping to catch a glimpse of his girlfriend Molly at Friday's fight will be disappointed as she revealed she won't be there due to coronavirus concerns.

She said on social media: "I'm not actually allowed to go to the fight.

"I'm watching it on telly at home. Like it's going to kill me.

"I'm really really gutted about it like I was so excited to go but Tommy was like you're not going to be able to come and I literally thought he was joking but that's how serious this corona stuff is."
