Tommy Fury on Love Island: Everything you need to know about the boxer and contestant

The summer of love is back – find out more about one of its singles ready to fight for romance.

Love Island is filling up its villa with a new plane load of singles all looking for romance.

Here’s everything you need to know about Tommy Fury.

Age: 20

From: Manchester

Occupation: Boxer

He doesn’t want to be defined by his famous brother

“(My claim to fame) is probably my brother, Tyson, but I’m my own man and I’ve said it throughout my whole boxing career. I don’t want to be labelled as his little brother, I’m my own man and I’m doing the best that I can do in life and that’s all I’m setting out to achieve.”

He’s looking for love in the old-fashioned way

“A lot of girls try to reach me through Instagram but I’m a real-life guy. I’m not interested in phones or FaceTime, I like the real thing, you can never gauge someone over the phone. Sit down over a drink or a meal and chat to them face-to-face, that’s the best way for me to date because that’s how you find out what type of person they really are.”

He’s setting his standards high

“I want to end up with a girl where I look at her every morning and think ‘You are gorgeous, I’m so lucky’ and if a thousand girls walked past, I don’t want to look at one of them. I probably won’t settle down until I find that.”
