What did you miss?

Boxer Tommy Fury has shared the tough decision he made to move out of his home with Molly-Mae Hague and baby Bambi while training.

"Now I'm enjoying some family time," he told Susanna Reid and Richard Madelely.

Love was in the air when Fury was reunited with Hague following his win but it has been a difficult ten weeks for the couple.

The boxer opened up about only been seeing his fiancée and their baby once a week while he trained for his match against YouTuber KSI.

Fury laid bare his reason for temporarily leaving their £4million Cheshire mansion, where the couple have been living since they made the move in March last year.

What, how and why?

Speaking on Good Morning Britain, Fury explained he temporarily moves out when he has an upcoming boxing match in order to get himself in the right mindset.

He said: "I removed myself from home, all the comforts of home life and I’ve been seeing Molly and the baby once a week for the past ten weeks.

"And it's been so tough, but at the end of the day, I can't switch from being a super dad, a cuddly dad, you know, cuddly fiancé, you know, giving kisses and a few hours [later] going to training.

"It's very difficult to get out of those different spaces. So I thought removing myself, I could focus on the fight and the task at hand. So that's the reason why I moved out."

He added: "I think it's tough because I don't like to balance, you know, home life, family life with my job.

"I keep them both completely separate because at the end of the day, nothing comes before my family and home life.

"So at the end of the day, it wouldn't be fair to my family coming through the door with just a fight on my mind. And that's all you need when you're in training camp.

"So I prefer to go away and focus on a fight and come back after the training sessions and just think about the fight constantly 24 hours a day, seven days a week."

Reflecting, Fury opened up about how the fight with KSI went down at the weekend.

He told the TV hosts: "I feel like the fight on Saturday night was very scrappy and made me look bad in the process.

"But at the end of the day, you should have stood there and I fight, I do believe the reference he was heavily in favour of him as well as he should have been warned about the holding.

"He should have been made to stand and fight. I'm not running around the ring all night. And, but at the end of the day, it's his promotion, it's his card.

"Everything goes according to him and I still went out there and got a job done even with a point deduction. I still won. So I must have won very clearly."

Plus, Fury admitted his love Hague finds it difficult to watch him in the boxing ring.

He explained: "I'm the father to our beautiful baby daughter and Molly doesn't want to see me in there taking punches.

"So I understand where she's coming from, but she tolerates it because she knows how happy it makes me. She knows that without boxing, my tick doesn't tick."
