Tyson Fury’s Brother, Roman, Wins Pro Debut
Tyson Fury’s younger brother, Roman Fury is looking to follow up in the steps of his elder brother as he geared up to make his professional boxing debut at the Doncaster Race Course, Yorkshire, UK.
And he was successful.
The 25-year-old defeated Ryan Hibbert with a four-round decision. The referee scored the fight 40-36.
“I’ll have a drink, I’m off for two days. [Then] straight back in the gym. I’m hungry baby and I’m gonna get it,” Roman told Sporty Stuff TV.
“Boxing has saved my life. I’ve been in a dark, dark place that I never thought I’d come out of, and it saved me. It really has.”
Roman became the third member of the Fury family to have orchestrated his way into the world of boxing — Tyson and Tommy being the other two.
Roman is training in the company of the current WBC heavyweight champion and will be hoping to kick off his pro career on a positive note.
“I’m excited to be making my professional debut this weekend and thank you to all the team for helping me. Training alongside Tyson, Tommy, Jimmy Harrington, Joe Parker and the whole Fury team is a great experience in professional boxing and I’m learning every day,” Roman said ahead of the fight.
“I didn’t do much as an amateur and I’ve lost a lot of weight in the lead up to this. I’ve got sponsors on board I’m really grateful for who’ve allowed me to train full time and that’s only helped me get better.
“I’m turning pro at cruiserweight and I’ve got a good opponent that always comes to fight on my pro debut, so I’m excited to get going and thanks to Jimmy and Steve Wood for getting me on in Doncaster this Saturday.”
Roman also shared his words on possible Tyson’s opponents and whether we will be seeing the Gypsy king making his return in the near future or not.
“I’m not sure if the fight happens with AJ and I hope it happens, because Tyson wins that fight every day, it’s not a hard fight for Tyson. Usyk is the same, Tyson is too big for Usyk and that will prove a big factor in the fight,” Roman stated.
