Tommy Fury Weighing Options For Next Bout, Eager To Fight For World Title
Tommy Fury is uncertain what his next steps are.
Fury is coming off a decision win over KSI and before that, he beat Jake Paul. Both fights were very close and many have called for their to be rematches. Although it would be big paydays, Fury isn’t sure what his next step is as he says he does want to fight for a title.
However, Tommy Fury knows fighting YouTubers and influencers is much better financially for him which makes this decision tough.
“I don’t recall this happening before, where champions are wanting to fight people that are right at the bottom of the pecking order. I’m just happy to be in this position, obviously we all know why he would take that fight but I am going to make the most off of the crossover scene while it is here,” Fury told The Daily Mail. “Let’s not beat around the bush, it’s a lot better financially than conventional boxing, the money that these fights are generating, conventional boxers will never see in their careers.
“I’m sure Jai Opetaia can box and win all the belts, but it wouldn’t accumulate to a fraction of what these crossover fights can generate,” Fury added. “I’m definitely going to make the most of it whilst it is here, but at the end of the day the plan will always be to challenge for that top strap (title). I wouldn’t feel right in myself, leaving the sport, if I had not challenged or even tried to win the world title and I do believe that I will win one because I have seen far worse people win one.
“I’m going to make the most off of the crossover scene and when all that is said and done, I will challenge the top boys and we will see how we go,” Fury concluded.
Tommy Fury is currently 10-0 as a pro and coming off the win over KSI. He also has wins over Jake Paul and Anthony Taylor.
