Tommy Fury getting ‘itchy knuckles’ and vows to get ‘straight back in the ring’ after recovering from broken rib

TOMMY FURY is getting ‘itchy knuckles’ and vowed to get ‘straight back in the ring’ after recovering from his broken rib.

The former Love Island star was left gutted having withdrawn from his celebrity grudge match with YouTuber Jake Paul in December.

But Fury, younger brother to heavyweight champion Tyson, is already on the road to recovery and planning on fighting as soon as possible.

He said on Instagram: “So as soon as I can get the all clear for the rib and can go back sparring again and all that other stuff I’ll be straight back in the ring.

“Because I’ve got some seriously itchy knuckles.”

Fury revealed in a separate post: “I’ve got one more scan to go, one more MRI to do with the rib to see where that’s at and to see where how much it’s healed and how much we’ve got left.

“And then after that I can jump straight back into the ring because I’ve already been keeping the weight down, raring to go.”

Fury, 22, was also suffering from a bacterial chest infection when he announced he was out of his fight with less than two weeks to go.

Tyron Woodley, 39, beaten by Paul, 25, four months earlier on points, subbed in but was brutally knocked out in round six of the Florida rematch.

Fury’s withdrawal means Paul is still yet to fight an opponent with prior professional boxing experience.

The other KO’s on his 5-0 record came against online rival ‘AnEsonGib’, ex-NBA player Nate Robinson, 37, and retired UFC welterweight Ben Askren, 37.

Fury hoped to reschedule the fight but Paul recently claimed he has no intentions of doing so.

Paul told Volume Sports: “He wants the payday.

“But I said it before, I don’t wanna take the fight with him, he doesn’t deserve it. I’d rather fight Tyson Fury.

“I’ll fight his brother or his dad before I’ll fight Tommy.”
