Tommy Fury splitting time at two gyms ahead of next fight and insists 'boxing is my life' after Love Island stint

TOMMY FURY is splitting his training camp between two gyms as he gets set for his fifth professional fight.

The Love Island star is back in action next Saturday in a four-rounder at London's Copper Box Arena.

And speaking to The Mirror, the younger brother of WBC heavyweight king Tyson Fury revealed he has gone back to his roots.

The 21-year-old is back at Steve Egan's gym in Wythenshawe, where he and Tyson started out.

And he is still using Arnie's Gym in Manchester.

Speaking to The Mirror Fury said: “Tyson boxed at the Egan gym and I boxed for them a few times in the amateurs so we’re taking it back to our grassroots.

“Boxing is my life. All I do is train and get myself on the road running.

“As soon as I got off the plane at Manchester Airport after Love Island, I said that all I wanted to do was box. So we went to see Frank Warren and got the show the road.

“Love Island was great fun, brought me a lot of privileges and earned me money, but boxing outweighs the celebrity life by a mile.

“Dad is training me as always, pushing as hard as he can. He is very old fashioned with Rocky-style training methods."
