Tommy Fury has MISSED WEIGHT ahead of his proposed fight with Paul Bamba this evening.
Fury, who has twice pulled out of fights with Jake Paul after the contracts were signed, is developing a bit of a reputation for repeatedly fumbling the bag.
It’s earned him the nickname ‘Tommy Fumbles’ – given to him by Paul himself – and he’s lived up to that name ahead of his proposed fight with Bamba tonight.
Fury was supposed to be fighting on the Floyd Mayweather vs Deji undercard in Dubai, but having missed weight, the fight is now in grave risk of being cancelled.
Tommy Fury has come in overweight at 181.4lbs for his fight vs Paul Bamba tomorrow night. Bamba made weight at 174.6lbs and told multiple reporters the situation is currently not agreed financially with him, so fight is in up in the air.

The options which remain are for Fury to sacrifice some of his fight purse and attempt to convince Bamba still to fight him, even though he has come in overweight.
Alternatively, the fight will be removed from the card and Fury’s reputation will be even more damaged than it already is. That would be the worst-case scenario.
We’ll see whether a resolution can be found between the parties involved, but regardless, it’s a truly terrible look for Fury, who is struggling to be taken seriously…
