Boxing News – Tommy Fury
Tommy Fury has agreed to step away from his path to boxing titles to face a YouTuber with a grudge on August 6.
Fury was initially slated to battle the vlogger in December but withdrew from the bout because of a medical issue.
He now gets the chance to fight at Madison Square Garden with Amanda Serrano in support.
There’s no doubt that Fury is a more experienced boxer and comes from a renowned boxing family.
The half-brother of WBC Heavyweight World Champion Tyson Fury, Tommy won four of his first five bouts by stoppage after turning pro in 2018 and most recently dominated a 10-1 opponent in April to capture his eighth win in front of 94,000 fans.
Fighting out of Manchester, England, Fury started boxing at 12 years old and won two regional titles, reaching the U.K. national final in 2016.
“The boxing charade is about to end once and for all,” Fury said. “I am a boxer. My opponent plays boxing.
“He has been dressed up to look like a boxer against retirees from other sports. On August 6, I will show the world that he does not belong in the ring.
“Thank you to my promoter Frank Warren and SHOWTIME for letting me permanently shut up [the YouTuber]. I look forward to headlining Madison Square Garden and knocking out this clown.”
