Love Island’s Tommy Fury reveals what it feels like to be punched by ‘mentally strong’ big brother Tyson


BOXER and Love Island star Tommy Fury has revealed what it feels like to be punched by big brother Tyson.

He warned: “Put it this way, Tyson will take a look at you, and a little tap from Tyson is — at 6ft 9in and 19stone — going to hurt.

“I’ve taken a punch of what he’d give from 45 millimetres away and that’s hard enough, I can tell you.

“There’s never, ever going to be another man like Tyson on the planet.

“He’s the most mentally strong person in the entire world.”

Tyson, 31, has been eating “five or six meals” and drinking eight litres of water a day at his training camp.

Tommy, 20, said he wouldn’t be doing the same for fights, adding: “Tyson’s his own man. He’ll do whatever Tyson’s going to do. But that’s the best thing about him. He’s very unpredictable.”

While enjoying fame with Love Island girlfriend Molly-Mae Hague, Tommy insists he isn’t trying to compete with his brother for the limelight.

He added: “I’m just out to be Tommy Fury. I’m not a reality TV man. I’m not an entertainment guy.

“I’m a fighting man. I’ve been doing that all my life, not six months out.

“Love Island is what I’m known for, but make no mistake when I’m finished I’ll be known for being one of the best fighters to come out of Britain.

“That’s what I want to do, what I’ve got my mind set on — and nothing’s changing that.”
