DESPITE being in the infancy of his boxing career, Tommy Fury is one of the most in-demand fighters in Britain.

At only 7-0, Fury is among the most recognisable boxers in the UK, thanks to his stint in reality TV show Love Island in 2019 and his older brother Tyson.

Eyeballs have been on his career ever since his 2018 debut but the pressure is now greater than ever.

As revealed by SunSport, Fury is set to fight YouTube sensation Jake Paul on December 18 in Miami, and opens as the betting favourite.

If the bookies are correct, it leaves the light-heavyweight sitting even prettier, and here SunSport runs down five fights that could follow.

Logan Paul

Older brother Logan, 26, has also forged a prizefighting career of his own, even taking boxing legend Floyd Mayweather, 44, the distance in their June exhibition.

And he even blasted Fury as an ‘amateur’ for failing to knock out Paul’s sparring partner Anthony Taylor, 32.

If Fury, 22, beats little brother Jake, 24, then Logan may want to go in for revenge – and the fight has been given the green light by his dad.

John Fury said on the True Geordie podcast: “Once he smashes, sorry when he smashes Jake Paul, he’ll take on his brother Logan and smash him along if he fancied it.”

Idris Virgo

Virgo, 28, is another Love Island alumni but has a more experienced boxing record of ten wins and one draw.

He has relentlessly chased a fight with Fury, who has refused to engage or acknowledge the super-middleweight.

Virgo is yet to break into the mainstream like Fury, and could be deemed too much of a risk to his unbeaten record.

But he has the talk to go with the skills and would provide Fury with a tough test while keeping the celebrity appeal alive.

Dillon Danis

Danis, 28, is a 2-0 Bellator MMA welterweight but is most commonly recognised as a training partner of Conor McGregor’s.

But he is equally polarising outside of the cage and has continuously feuded with Paul online, but turned down the chance to fight him in March citing an injured knee.

Danis has even hit out at Fury, recently tweeting: “tommy fury is ass lol.”

Despite coming out of left field, it would give Fury a recognised-named opponent in the US.

Tyron Woodley

Woodley, 39, still wants a rematch with Paul, but faces waiting in a long line with others.

If Fury was to beat the social media sensation, Woodley could capitalise by then challenging him.

It would then give the ex-UFC champion the chance to get back into the ring and try and force through a rematch with Paul.

But it would be hard to see it interesting Fury.

Without a single punch being thrown between Paul and Fury – millions of dollars have already been made.

The pay-per-view and ticket sales are almost guaranteed to be a success, meaning no matter the result, a rematch is always a possibility.

As the A-side, it is likely if Paul were to lose he would be afforded the chance to fight Fury again with a rematch clause.

And even if the fight is exciting enough, a two-partner cannot be ruled out.
