John Fury Reveals What Tyson Told Tommy After He Left Love Island Villa

John Fury Reveals What Tyson Told Tommy After He Left Love Island Villa

Tyson Fury told his brother Tommy to "get back in the ring" after his Love Island excursion this summer.

The younger brother of the 'Gypsy King' came second in the hit ITV reality show earlier this year.

But former heavyweight world champion Tyson urged his 20-year-old sibling to put the gloves on again after uncertainty over his boxing future.

Their dad John Fury revealed what Tyson told Tommy when he left the Love Island villa - and where the idea to appear on the show came from in the first place.

John Fury said Tyson told his brother: "Just get back in the ring and do what you do, box."

He added: "This Love Island thing came out of nowhere, basically.

"I think it was one comment Ricky Hatton made in the gym. Ricky is the blame for it all. He told Tommy, 'You shouldn't be a boxer. You're too good looking. You should be on Love Island!

"The next thing you know, the Love Island people are in the gym, 'we want you!' and that's it!

"I kept myself out of it. He's a good looking kid. At the end of the day, he's a nice kid. The world is his oyster really. He's done well to get where he is.

"He told me he wants to fight and he told that was his first love so that's what he'll do."

Tommy Fury had two professional fights before appearing on Love Island this year, beating Callum Ide and Jevgenijs Andrejevs.

The 31-year-old suffered a nasty cut in the third round but held it together to secure a unanimous victory.

After the fight, he turned his attention to a rematch with Deontay Wilder.

Tyson said: "I got cut early on but I am a gypsy worrier and this is Mexican independence day - viva Mexico.

"It's all heart and determination. If I can keep going I will and I was the better man tonight.

"It was a good performance. I got 12 rounds in against a tough Swede. Deontay Wilder, I want you next.

"The big dosser is next on February 22. I'll let the cut heal and get some time with my family."
