Tommy Fury has confirmed he will return to boxing months after appearing on reality TV show Love Island.
The 20-year-old took time out from professional boxing to appear on the ITV show where he finished second alongside girlfriend Molly-Mae Hague.
He announced the date on Instagram with a video captioned ‘Are you ready’ with the date of the fight – December 21.
Fury, who is the younger brother of former heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, will fight on the same night as Daniel Dubois and Kyotaro Fujimoto’s eagerly anticipated heavyweight bout.
It’s not clear who Fury’s opponent is at present.
Before going on Love Island, Fury fought and won two professional bouts in the light heavyweight division.
The Manchester fighter is trained by former world champion Ricky Hatton.
Shortly after his time on Love Island, Fury had suggested that he could take a year out from boxing.
He said: “The opportunities after leaving the villa back on the outside are life-changing and you can’t turn those opportunities down, you’d be a fool to.
“If I take 12 months out of the ring, I’ll be 21, so I’m still a baby in the sport, but there’s no doubt some time next year I’ll be back in the ring doing what I love.”

He also made no bones about his desire to make it to the top.
Fury added: “I’m gonna be a world champion in the future. I wouldn’t be in the gym or even be thinking about boxing if I didn’t think I could go all the way.
“British title, European title, they’re all great titles to win and I’d be very privileged to win one of them.
“But any boxer who steps into that ring and don’t believe they can be a world champion shouldn’t be in boxing.”
