John Fury declares ‘I’ve got two kings coming’ as Tyson Fury’s younger brother Tommy extends winning record as pro with second round KO of Scott Williams in London
Tommy ‘TNT’ Fury delivered a knockout performance as he extended his professional record to 5-0.
The 21-year-old light-heavyweight prospect is serious about making a name for himself in boxing, following his Love Island antics.
Fury, who is the half-brother to heavyweight world champion Tyson, took on journeyman Scott Williams at the Copper Box Arena on Saturday night in his latest bout.
Fellow Brit Williams was hardly a formidable opponent – he’d lost all nine of his previous bouts – but Fury will be pleased at making another step in the right direction.
It was clear he was too good for Williams, who is 11 years his senior, from the first bell.
Fury dropped him twice with body shots and though Williams survived the first, it was soon over in the second.
A powerful right hand from Fury knocked Williams down and into the ropes and referee Bob Williams waved it off.
“I am trying different things, learning on the way,” said Fury in the immediate aftermath.
“I am in the public eye, no matter what I do everyone will have an opinion, as long as my family see I don’t care about anyone’s opinions.
“Boxing is the hardest sport in the world, but at the end of the way I am a novice boxer. I have my dad there guiding me, I can’t go wrong.”
He has been trained by his dad, John, who declared he will soon have two kings in boxing – backing Tommy to have the same level of success as Tyson, the WBC heavyweight champion.
“He is only a novice, and he’s done that to him,” said Fury Snr.
“He is in a no-win situation, he has come off Love Island, people can expect too much from no boxing experience.
“We have a small circle and will bring him on right. He is a marketing dream, he is a handsome fella and he can punch. I will upgrade him when he needs.
“I got one king now, I have two coming, if people can’t see his potential they need to go to Specsavers, this kid has got it all.”
