The youngest Fury will begin his career at light-heavyweight
Tyson Fury’s younger brother Tommy Fury has turned professional and will make his debut on December 22.
The 19-year-old has signed with his elder sibling’s promoter, Frank Warren, but is set to be trained by a different coach, Ricky Hatton.
He will make his debut as a light-heavyweight on the undercard of Josh Warrington v Carl Frampton on December 22.
“It’s big shoes to fill isn’t it?” Tommy Fury joked when asked about emulating his brother.
“It’s a big name to live up to but I don’t feel any added pressure on myself because of it, I know that I will make my own name in this sport.”
Tommy’s brother Tyson won the unified heavyweight titles from Wladimir Klitschko in 2015 and will look to become a two-time ruler when he takes on Deontay Wilder on December 1.
The youngest Fury aims to match his brother, despite limited previous experience
“I only had 12 amateur fights in the end,” he continued, “I went to the nationals and got to the final, won the north regionals twice, so I did reasonably well.
“But amateur boxing and professional boxing are two different things.
“I want to be world champion, I think if you’re turning pro that has to be what you are aiming to achieve.”
