Tommy Fury: I Could Not Live With Myself if I Didn’t Box For a World Title

Boxing Scene

Light heavyweight prospect Tommy Fury (9-0, 4 KOs), he is still very much motivated to achieve a career goal of fighting for a world title.

Fury will return to action on Saturday night in Manchester, where he faces social media star KSI in a crossover boxing match.

Back in February, Fury picked up his most high profile win to date, when he outboxed another social media star, Jake Paul, over eight rounds.

Because of his recent career choices, Fury is viewed by many as a crossover boxer.

However, Fury is very motivated to follow in the footsteps of his older brother, WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury.

“The plan is to get though these YouTube fights, do what I need to do in this sort of scene and I believe I am good enough to win a world title belt,” Fury told PA News.

“I don’t know when or what weight division but when the time is right I’ll go out and I will challenge for a world title because I could not live with myself if I didn’t box for one. I believe I can do it, I have the right set-up around me so why not give myself a best shot?”

The 24-year-old Fury gained fame from his involvement in the 2019 reality show Love Island.

He admits that victories over Paul and KSI will not nearly be enough to put him in contention for world level fights.

“These guys don’t really call for me to step up to world title ability. I’m levels above these guys,” said Fury. “I could beat KSI after 15 pints of beer. I could literally go down the pub all day, fight him at night-time and still beat him. If we fight 100 times I beat him 100 times.”
