Tommy Fury had promised in the build-up to Saturday night at Wembley Stadium that he is a world champion in the making.

On the evidence of his eighth professional fight, there is no lack of potential to Tyson Fury’s younger brother, who has been immersed in his older sibling’s training camp for the past 12 weeks.

But Fury Jr’s six-round points win over Daniel Bocianski was the most notable of his nascent career as he dominated the bout after a cagey opening round.

The 22-year-old, who has pledged to prove he is more than just a former Love Island contest, did his best to finish the fight early against an obdurate opponent.

A massive right hand in the final 30 seconds of round five with blood already pouring from Bocianski’s left eye initially looked to be enough but the Pole, with a 10-1 record in the professional ranks, managed to see out the round – even with a late uppercut – and the duration of the fight.

Fury had bided his time in round one as he and Bocianski traded inconsequential blows. The Briton was told off for holding in round two but otherwise looked relatively unfazed.

Intriguingly, Fury spent little time listening to his corner between rounds, instead tilting his head to take on advice from his father John in the seats below.

The game plan worked as Fury, who had warned he was the fittest he has ever been, raised the tempo of punches. He tailed off in the latter stages with him and his opponent spending more time embracing than punching at points.

Quite what lies ahead next for Fury remains to be seen. He is adamant his future lies in the ring rather as a social media star.
