Tommy Fury Claims Fighting YouTubers is Harder Than Boxers, Says “Any Pro Will Tell You That”

, Tommy Fury Claims Fighting YouTubers is Harder Than Boxers, Says “Any Pro Will Tell You That”

Tommy Fury's Surprising Revelation

Tommy Fury, the 24-year-old Love Island star, has made a bold claim about his experiences in the ring. According to Fury, fighting YouTubers is actually harder than facing professional boxers. He confidently stated, "Any professional boxer will tell you that."

From Undefeated to Influencer Bouts

Before delving into the world of mega-money influencer bouts, Fury had an impressive record of 8-0 in his fledgling boxing career.

Beating Jake Paul and Facing KSI

In February, Fury secured a split-decision victory over Jake Paul in a highly anticipated clash. This win set the stage for his showdown with YouTuber-turned-boxer KSI.

A Controversial Battle of Britain

Fury's fight against KSI ended contentiously, with Fury initially being awarded a majority decision. However, due to a scorecard being read out incorrectly, the decision was later changed to a unanimous victory for Fury. KSI has since hired a lawyer to appeal the loss, but Fury is not fazed.

Fighting Non-Pros: A Different Challenge

After declaring that he was done facing influencers following his battle with KSI, Fury opened up about the difficulties of fighting non-professional boxers. He believes that these opponents pose a greater challenge compared to traditional boxers.

The Chaos of Facing Novices

According to Fury, fighting novices is a messy and unpredictable affair. He explained, "Punches are coming from everywhere, you're leaning out of shots, and it's horrible and messy." In contrast, facing conventional boxers is easier because they are in front of you and their style is more predictable.

Looking to Return to Conventional Boxing

Fury revealed that his experiences with influencers have made him want to go back to being a "normal boxer" and showcase his skills in the ring. He reminisced about his previous victories and the confidence he had before facing these unconventional opponents.

KSI's Tactics and Fury's Frustration

Fury expressed his disappointment with KSI's performance in their fight. He believes that KSI's plan was to avoid engaging with Fury and instead clinch him throughout the match. Fury found it difficult to fight someone who did not want to engage or win the fight.

Despite the challenges he has faced in the ring, Fury remains engaged to fellow Love Islander Molly-Mae Hague and is focused on his boxing career.
