    Working with big John full time now I see. Said his schedule didn't work with Ricky since leaving love island. He does a lot of media stuff now I'd imagine so I'd say John travels around with him, getting the training sessions in on the go.

    Hard to know where Tommy Fury is but I'll be interested to see how he and John get on working together.

    I heard Caroline flack slapped him silly off camera on the love island set, he phoned big John to come and sort her out but he bottled it, he wanted no piece of the flack.

    Can’t see him doing much in the pros , you can’t have a full time job as a celebrity and have aspirations to be a top fighter. Even British level I don’t think he will do anything as a pro.

    Probably right.
    He's likely making a lot more money out of the ring anyway so why bother getting punched in the head for less money when you don't have to.
    Would he be fully committed to take it the distance? I'm not so sure.
    Good luck to the lad.

    Agree, seems unlikely he’ll do a lot IMO. The two lifestyles don’t exactly go hand in hand

    He's a talentless 'celebrity'. He's not a singer or an actor or even someone who could do a bit of presenting. That fame and fortune won't last long.

    Listening to him speak, all he knows is boxing. I think he'll give the sport the crack it deserves. Atm he's cashing in on a love island stint but he's only 20 and as I say, that won't last long.

    Looks like a midget compared to his brothers. Must have been the runt of the litter.

    Yeah. Been watching him train and on the pads etc. He looks terrible. I think the best we will see from him is a fight against another celebrity like a KSI or someone.

    An absolute farce that he is being given attention as 'a boxer'. Just look at the records of the two fellas he fought and he couldn't even put the first one away or look remotely impressive.
    Who's the opponent this weekend !? Someone will be getting paid a nice little Xmas earner to take a dive !

    Another Anthony Ogogo, easier ways to make money than getting punched in the head so good luck to them.

    I blame love Island and YouTube for this shower of turd.

    Celebrity (and I use that word loosely) boxers are starting to get on my nerves.

    All the more reason to rip the a**e out of it now then.

    He's never going to be a world beater so from a financial point of view he's probably better off earning the cash now while he can and then use his enhanced public profile to get paid more than his boxing skills warrant a bit later on.

    Going to be difficult to stay relevant for long in either field so make hay while the sun shines would be my advice.

    Can't act
    Can't sing
    Can't dance
    Can't write
    Can't play an instrument
    Just a jacked kid with a pretty bland personality and neat eyebrows

    That's a modern day celebrity, it's a sorry state of affairs.
