27th September 2022

TOMMY FURY will reportedly return to the ring to fight an ex-Marine Corps.

Fury will go toe-to-toe with Paul Bamba on the undercard of Floyd Mayweather's exhibition bout with YouTube star Deji in Dubai.


Boxing Scene claim that Fury, 23, is likely to face the 5-2 New Yorker on November 13.

Fury, the younger brother of WBC heavyweight champion Tyson, is 8-0 as a professional boxer.

And he will try to maintain that unbeaten record against the relatively-unknown US Marine Corps veteran Bamba.

The 33-Year-old is the founder and president of Trifecta Strong, a boxing and fitness training company.

The match up comes after the former Love Island star turned down a bout with ex-UFC champ Tyron Woodley. 

Fury is said to have made things difficult for promoters in the Middle East who wanted to see him in a big name fight.

The Mirror report that he was never keen to face Woodley despite multiple efforts to make it happen.

Meanwhile Jake Paul, who Woodley has suffered two defeats to, couldn't help but take a dig at Fury after learning his rival is expecting a child.

Paul's jibe was in reference to his two cancelled fights with Fury.

The pair – who began their feud on social media – were first scheduled to do battle last December in Florida.

The Tampa tussle, however, fell through days before the bout as Fury was forced to withdraw due to injury.

The pair then tried again this August, but the British light-heavyweight was withdrawn amid a US visa issue.
