As news is released about his next fight, Tommy Fury is in the gym practicing his right hand on the punching machine on which his brother Tyson holds the record on.
We all love a punch machine result and, despite the numbers being a bit of a lottery, comparing fighters’ scores. The kits are more likely to be found in a nightclub than a boxing gym, but that’s not the case for ‘The Gypsy King.’
The younger Fury has a 50% knockout ratio and put his power to the ultimate test in the Morecambe gym that he often trains alongside Tyson and his father/coach, John.
💥 @tommytntfury SMASHES the punch machine

Tyson, the WBC heavyweight champion of the world, hit a score of 993 recently, so half-brother Tommy’s 949 comes up short but, given the weight difference, isn’t a bad effort at all.

And in the end, it doesn’t really matter does it?
It was announced today that Fury, who has been long-rumoured to face Jake Paul, will return to the ring against little known American, Paul Bamba. The bout will land on the undercard of Floyd Mayweather’s exhibition against YouTuber, Deji, in Dubai on November 13.
The Paul fight, which has now been scheduled and postponed twice, is still on his radar though, and it seems the pair are on a collision course to meet in what would be one of the biggest fights in influencer boxing since its inception.
