Tommy Fury baffled onlookers as he stripped off shirtless for a 4am street fight in Manchester against his brother Roman. The 23-year-old was seen throwing rights and lefts as another man desperately tried to break up the fight between the pair.
Footage obtained by The Sun shows the entire event as it unfolded with witnesses shocked by what they had just seen. One observer told the publication: “We were going on holiday and our friend was picking us up at around 4am.
“After we put our bags in the boot we were about to drive off and then we saw Tommy topless. He was shouting at his brother and that’s what made us notice him.”
However, a source close to Tommy insists it was only a playfight: “They weren’t in a row and were just messing around – he’s close to his brother and Tommy can fight – if he meant it, you’d see it in the video.”
Tommy’s older brother Roman is also preparing to follow in the family’s footsteps as he embarks on a career in boxing himself. The 25-year-old has no amateur experience and only started boxing during lockdown but will make his professional debut on VIP Boxing’s card at the Winter Gardens in Blackpool on September 10.
Talking to the promotion after a sparring session in August, he said: “And as you’ve seen today I’m not just about fighting anybody that’s no good I want to get in the best so it improves me and that’s what I’m going to do. I was in there with a good lad today, a lot more experienced than me.
“I’ve always been messing around on the pads with my dad and my brothers from a young age, but actually sparring and fighting, I’ve not got much experience. So that’s what I’ve started to do the last year, year and a half.”
