Tommy Fury met his match in Love Island with Mollie Mae, now he's back with an old flame, and there's a ring involved.

Being a reality TV star can be life changing and those who feature in them usually leave their old lives and jobs behind for partying and influencing- But Tommy says this wasn't making him happy.

Despite shooting to reality stardom, he isn't interested in "running around a club with a bottle of beer in his hand" and would instead prefer to be in the boxing ring "perfecting his craft".

We caught up with him in Birmingham during a training session ahead of his first match since Love Island:

Tommys comeback fight is scheduled for 21st of December at London’s Copper Box Arena.

His girlfriend Molly Mae, who he met in the Love Island villa, says she is fully behind her partner, despite the dangers the the sport can bring.

He also has the full support of his family, including his brother Tyson, the former unified heavyweight world champion.
