Tommy Fury reveals dad John is scarier than Tyson and warns Anthony Joshua it will be 'game over' when he fights brother

TOMMY FURY says his dad John is scarier than brother and WBC heavyweight boxing king Tyson.

But the Love Island star believes Tyson will be in a mean mood when he eventually fights Anthony Joshua predicting 'game over' for the Watford fighter.


Tommy is trying to make his own waves in the sport after becoming a household name for his time topping up his tan on reality TV.

The 21-year-old has won all three of his pro fights so far, two by way of KO.

If he can adopt the same 'take no prisoners' attitude older brother and dad have, Tommy hopes one day to become a world champ himself.

When asked who was scarier between John and Tyson, Tommy told The Sportsman: “I wouldn’t like to be stuck in a lift with my dad. Definitely not.

“There is just something about him, when he loses his temper that is it, you just say ‘Oh no problem, I’ll speak to you another day.’ Get out the firing line.”

Tyson announced a the start of coronavirus lockdown that he had agreed with WBA, WBO and IBF champ Joshua for the pair to fight twice in 2021.

And unsurprisingly Tommy is tipping big bro to do what he does best and win the Battle Of Britain.

He added: "I think it will happen, definitely because it is too big of a fight not to happen. I think it should definitely be on for summer time or back end of the year next year to be fair.


"Tyson is ready all year round. He’s never shied away from anybody his entire life so whenever Joshua steps up and wants to take the fight, then Tyson will be here waiting.

"I truly believe Joshua knows this in his own head. When he fights Tyson it will be game over for him.”

Tyson is now busy trying to sort a fight before the end of the year, with the Deontay Wilder trilogy shelved for 2021.

But his promoters Frank Warren and Bob Arum are desperate to get the WBC heavyweight champ back out before 2020 is done.

Arum has compiled a five-man shortlist for Fury, and one of the names on the list is desperate for his chance to shock the world.

Michael Hunter says he would fight the Gypsy King FOR FREE, but feels another 'softer' opponent will be cherry-picked.

SunSport has also compiled a list of five potential opponents for the Lineal champ – some would whet the appetite, others would raise a few eyebrows.
