TOMMY FURY is returning to the ring on February 27 – and his world champion brother Tyson has urged him to ‘throw those bombs’.
The 21-year-old will compete on the undercard of Jamel Herring vs Carl Frampton in London against an as yet unconfirmed opponent.
And he is already hard at work for his fifth professional fight, with his older brother only too happy to show off his sibling’s talents.
The WBC heavyweight champ, who is still in talks for a blockbuster £200m unification showdown with Anthony Joshua, shared a clip of Tommy hitting the pads in the ring during training,
And he captioned it with: “GO ON TOMMY THROW THOSE BOMBS!!”
The 2019 Love Island star extended his record to 4-0 in November as he took out journeyman Genadij Krajevskij in two rounds.
Fury is trained by his dad John – who revealed his boy plans to have five fights in 2021.
Prior to this confirmation, he said: "He's potentially going to fight in February sometime, all being well there's no guarantee with the state of the world at the minute.
"He's looking to get at least four or five fights behind him, we've got to step his opponents up, get him a bit better class and just see where he goes from there.
"He's a work in progress, he's a kid and he's 21."

After enjoying a winter break in Dubai with girlfriend Molly Mae, Tommy declared his intention not to just live off his fame from the screen.
He said: “Fighting isn’t about just picking up gloves and fighting, you have to train for three to four months before each fight and watch your diet.
“It’s not just a case of people thinking, ‘Tommy’s fighting. He has decided to have a fight.’ There is so much more.
“Boxing is my life. All I do is train and get myself on the road running.”
His promoter Frank Warren added: “We have put together a strong supporting cast for Carl’s big night where he is seeking to make history in what should be a compelling clash against Jamel Herring with the WBO world title at stake.
“We are making it an even bigger night for Belfast by adding Anthony Cacace’s first defence of his British title against Lyon Woodstock.
“Everybody seems to be looking forward to this one because it has the makings of a fantastic fight with both men happy to go to war.
“2021 is a year to keep Tommy Fury busy and get him the experience he needs to push on in the light heavyweight division.
“Boxing is what he wants to do and we will be sure to get him the right fights at the right time.”
