Love Island is back for 2019!
And the return of the show means a whole host of gorgeous new Islanders are set to dominate the nation’s summer with their drama.
One Islander who seems to be causing a stir more than most is none other than Tyson Fury’s younger brother, Tommy…
So who is Tommy Fury? Read on to find out more about the professional boxer and his boxing record.

Meet Tommy Fury…
The 20-year-old Mancunian looks set to shake things up in the Love Island villa.
This 6ft dark and handsome boxer seems like he was built to be on the show. He reminds us of a certain Love Island 2018 contestant… Adam Collard anyone?
But his physical appearances aren’t the only thing that remind us of Adam, as it would seem that Tommy is also a bit of a heartbreaker. A source so bluntly told The Daily Star:
He’s been out and about in Manchester over the last few months since splitting up with his ex and always cleans up.

Tommy Fury’s boxing record
It looks like Tommy’s childhood dream of following in the footsteps of his older brother, boxing legend Tyson Fury, is becoming a reality.
He only recently turned pro – he debuted on December 22nd, 2018 – but he is currently 2-0 under Frank Warren.
For those who aren’t well-versed in boxing jargon, that means Tommy is undefeated following his first two professional bouts.
Then again, his opponents haven’t exactly been of high quality. Twenty-seven-year-old Callum Ide has never won a belt while Latvian star Jevgenijs has won less than 10% of his 100 appearances in the ring.
Long way to go, then…
- Bouts: 2
- KOs: 1
- Wins vs Callum Ide (29-0), Jevgenijs Andrejevs (118-10)
Tommy and Tyson
Tommy and his brother have always been close and Tyson has always supported his endeavours in and out of the ring.
In fact, it was Tyson Fury who revealed Tommy’s upcoming appearance on the show whilst being interviewed on ESPN! Tyson said:
He’s a good looking young kid and I think he’s going to be a hit with the ladies on it.

So the worst kept secret is out…We are so excited to announce our boy Tommy will be on @itv2 @loveisland 2019 ❤️? There will be plenty of polls, quizzes, games & memes on his socials throughout the series, so PLEASE support our boy Tommy by using his official links below: IG: @tommytntfury Twitter: @tommytntfury Exclusive Management @off_limits_ent
But although Tommy has said he “want[s] to be World Champion” and has the support from his world champion brother, his stint in the villa might have to put a hold on his boxing career.
And it looks like boxing fans have doubts about Tommy’s committment to his career, particularly after he’s become a reality TV star!
LOVE ISLAND SEASON 5 STARTS ON MONDAY, JUNE 3RD 2019 ON ITV 2.
