Roman Fury On Making His Pro Debut

“I don’t want to rush things. I don’t want to box on big bills just because I carry the ‘Fury’ name.

“You can’t run before you can walk and the VIP Boxing shows are ideal for me to learn my ringcraft and build.

“I could have had amateur fights, but I am around professional boxers and learning that side of things.

“Amateur fights would have been a nice experience, but I would rather go into the pro ranks and learn. These shows will improve me.

“I started late and don’t have time to waste two or three years in the amateurs so I have to progress quickly.

“Tyson, Tommy, our Dad and Jimmy all said just get straight into professional boxing.”
