Footage of Tommy Fury playing football emerges ahead of Soccer Aid debut

Footage of Tommy Fury playing football emerges ahead of Soccer Aid debut

Tommy Fury is playing in the Soccer Aid 2023 and footage of him playing football has been doing the rounds.

Tommy Fury will swap the boxing ring for the football pitch on June 11 and footage of him showing off his skills has led to plenty of intrigue for his big debut.

The internet was sent into complete and utter meltdown a couple of days back when former One Direction member Liam Payne appeared to be teasing a boxing bout with Fury, who beat Jake Paul in a career highlight victory in Saudi Arabia in his last fight.

A poster of the two squaring off was shared online and featured 'Old Trafford, Manchester' as the location.

But then fans quickly sensed what was happening and that it was that the pair would be locking horns on opposite teams for the UNICEF charity match at the Theatre of Dreams.

Payne captained England at West Ham's London Stadium last year and Fury confirmed he will be involved for the first time when he tweeted, "SOCCER AID 2023! I’m coming for you on Sunday 11 June."

The 23-year-old stands at 6 ft and normally fights at light heavyweight or cruiserweight - though he's recently admitted to piling on the pounds after his triumph over Paul.

He's been involved as a boxer his whole life but how is he with a ball at his feet? Fury was a guest on Soccer AM a couple of weeks back and took part in the 'Pro AM' challenge alongside former England, Chelsea and Juventus women's player Eni Aluko.

And Fury showed he's got power in his boot as well as his hands when he nearly broke the net with a netbuster of a penalty.

However, the less said about his volley attempts the better as Fury got it horribly wrong on more than one occasion.

Although born in England, Fury will be representing the Rest of the World and teaming with the likes of Usain Bolt, Lee Mack, Iain Stirling, Kem Cetinay, Mo Gilligan and Steven Bartlett.

It's due to his mother, Chantal, being of Mauritian descent.
