Tommy Fury has announced that he will take time away from his boxing career to “heal”.

The 24-year-old told his followers that he has been dealing with a hand injury for four years and has now had surgery.

Fury said he has been in “extreme pain” since 2019, around the time he entered ITV2 dating show Love Island where he met influencer Molly-Mae Hague.

Despite managing the injury since defeating boxer Przemyslaw Binienda in around 60 seconds in his first bout since leaving the Love Island villa as a runner-up in 2019, he has been undefeated in a professional contest.

Fury beat YouTube stars KSI and Logan Paul in fights last year.



On Wednesday, Fury wrote on Instagram: “Since 2019 I have been dealing with a hand injury that I’ve never spoken about/shared online.

“Since my third professional fight (with Binienda) I have been trying to manage this injury, training and fighting through extreme pain which led me to often not being able to use my right hand at all.

“For the last four weeks of my last camp I trained solely with my left hand until fight night.

“This morning I underwent the surgery I’ve been putting off for years as I know this is the only way my hand will heal and that I can move forward with my boxing career. I’m excited for my recovery journey and so ready to be back feeling and giving 100% in 2024.”

Hague, with whom he shares one child, put heart emojis underneath the post.

The couple announced the birth of their daughter Bambi last year and told followers of their engagement in July.

Tommy Fury is the son of John Fury and half-brother of Tyson Fury, whom he also starred alongside in the Netflix reality TV series At Home With The Furys.
