Tommy Fury to fight former Marine on Mayweather exhibition undercard in Dubai

Tommy Fury is set to fight ex-Marine Paul Bamba on the undercard of Floyd Mayweather's exhibition clash against YouTube star Deji in Dubai this November.

It puts to bed any speculation that Tyson's younger brother will rearrange a bout with rival Jake Paul – for now at least. And his new opponent comes in the shape of Bamba, a relatively unknown fighter.

The 33-year-old has lost two of his seven professional fights and has founded his own company, Trifecta Strong, a boxing and fitness training organisation that he is also the president of. Bamba is also a veteran of the US Marina Corps.

Fury is likely the face the American, report Boxing Scene, on November 13 – on the same undercard as Mayweather and Deji. The legendary boxer will face KSI's younger brother in Dubai this year in an exhibition fight.

Deji is not the only YouTuber that has looked to enter the world of boxing, with fellow social media star Jake Paul also taking to the ring. The American has beaten the likes of former UFC fighters Tyron Woodley and Ben Askren.

He even beat Deji in an exhibition clash in his first bout on the same undercard as both their brothers KSI and Logan Paul back in 2018. However, in recent times Paul and Fury had become embroiled in a series of spats on social media.

A fight between the two had been scheduled but was cancelled after it emerged that Fury could not enter the United States while another previous clash fell through to an injury to the 23-year-old

Fury recently announced that he was expecting a child with his girlfriend Molly Mae, who he met on reality show Love Island. Paul replied to a post on social media, saying: "Shocking. Tommy usually pulls out."
