Tommy is the younger brother of the illustrious British heavyweight boxing champion, Tyson Fury. Their familial connection has garnered significant attention, placing significant pressure on Tommy as he looks to forge his own path in the boxing world.
However, Tommy says he can handle the pressure of the Fury name. He told Mail Sport: ‘It’s absolutely fine and I will tell you why. I know I am levels above these guys. When you know you can beat someone, it’s a different story. In my mind, this is not 50/50 at all. I am 100 times better than KSI.
‘I am the better athlete, the better fighter, the mover. Whatever you want to say, I am. I have had all this pressure before. It’s not this is my first massive occasion. I have been on this world stage before, with all eyes on the fight.
‘I have had Ronaldo ringside. I’ve had Mike Tyson ringside. I have had everybody. It’s really my second time at this. I am looking to put on a much better performance this time. I am looking to get KSI out of there early and make a statement.’
He went on to speak about how his brother is also on hand to offer him advice. He told Mail Sport: ‘We’ve been on the phone every day speaking. He’s in great shape, I am in great shape. I am in the best shape of my career.
‘It’s always great to have him there for any bits of advice. Or anything. He will be at the fight on Saturday night. He will be attending. It will be great to have him there. It’s going to be a really good night.’
