Tommy Fury is reportedly considering quitting boxing for a year so he can cash in on his Love Island fame, but his family won’t be happy about it.
According to The Sun, the professional boxer wants to take some time outside the ring to take on other work projects.
A source said: “Tommy knows he is in a unique position with work opportunities coming out of his ears.”
“He has TV projects on the table, as well as lucrative branding deals, so wants to concentrate on those for a year so he can set himself up for the future.”
“He knows that if he makes enough capital he can invest in his future, whether it’s property or training, and re-focus on boxing later.”
The source added: “Molly is supportive and just wants Tommy to be happy.”
The news comes just weeks after Tommy’s famous brother Tyson Fury spoke about his brother’s future post-Love Island during an interview.
Tyson said: “He might get carried away being a TV reality star rather than a fighting man – and it’s the last thing he needs to do when he’s trying to become a professional fighter.”
