What next for Tommy Fury? How Love Island novice boxer could net £10m
What next for Tommy Fury? How Love Island novice boxer could be set to make more than partner Molly-Mae and net £10million with Netflix-style documentary, fashion deals – and even Hollywood movies after Jake Paul win
Tommy Fury has made at least £3.7million from his win over Jake Paul in Riyadh – and could bring home at least £10million more by the end of the 2025, experts told MailOnline today.
The Love Island star and boxer, 23, may even eclipse his influencer partner Molly-Mae Hague, 23, who is said to earn £2million-a-year and can secure a £20,000 fee for a single Instagram post.
Last night Fury, who recently had his first child Bambi with Miss Hague a month ago, settled his grudge match with Jake Paul after winning a split decision in Saudi Arabia in front his half-brother Tyson, Cristiano Ronaldo, Mike Tyson and Deontay Wilder with millions watching on pay-per-view (PPV).
Fury is reportedly set to receive a £1.6million ($2m) purse – and 35 per cent of the PPV money. In total, the 23-year-old will earn £3.7million ($4.5m). Paul’s fight purse will be £2.6million ($3.2m) – but he will also take 65 per cent of the pay-per-view money, taking his overall prize money to £7.1million ($8.6m) even though he lost.
Brand and culture expert Nick Ede believes that if well advised, Fury will make ‘at least £10million’ in the next 2-3 years – much of it from outside boxing.
Mr Ede told MailOnline Fury could make many more millions from a Netflix-style documentary and rematch with Jake Paul, Mr Ede believes. A film career could also be on offer, given the popularity of boxing on the big screen.

He said: ‘Tommy went on to be amass millions from fast fashion deals and endorsements as well as public appearances after Love Island.

‘Now with his win against Jake Paul he has all eyes on him internationally and he could make many more millions as a fighter. With the support of his brother and some of the most famous people in sport including Ronaldo and Mike Tyson, the world is his oyster.
‘I can see him working on a documentary series, a possible rematch with Jake Paul and lots more endorsements too. With his good looks he may start to do more luxury brand endorsements desperate for new customers and perhaps he may go into movies too like many other famous sports stars including Mike Tyson.
‘With the popularity of films like Creed I can see him pursuing the Hollywood route and eclipsing his wife’s fame by becoming a truly international star’.
PR guru Mark Borkowski predicts that a fight with YouTube star and boxer KSI could be next for Tommy in yet another money-spinning fight.
He said: ‘Jake Paul is Teflon, he can survive a few bumps. You feel this grudge match with Fury isn’t over. I’d expect another episode of the soap opera as KSI dives in. KSI wrote on Twitter: “Honestly I would destroy both Jake Paul and Tommy Fury.” There’s more yet to come’.
But he added: ‘Tommy is still overshadowed by his dad and the more able YouTubers’.

In March 2022, the smitten couple also purchased a £4million six-bedroom home in affluent Cheshire. It boasts a luxurious contemporary design, 5,000 sq ft of land, and a tranquil garden.
Molly revealed the move by launching a new social media profile on Instagram called Molly Maison, where she plans to document more of her personal life and gives an inside glimpse into their dream home.
Molly snapped up the Cheshire residence before it went on the market and she now has the likes of England footballers Marcus Rashford, 24, and Jordan Pickford, 28, as neighbours.
A source told MailOnline: ‘Molly fell in love with the property as soon as she saw it. It has everything she had been looking for including a luxurious contemporary design, stylish interiors, and a landscape garden.
‘Molly also loved the bohemian influences, which is reminiscent of her travels to Ibiza and Tulum in Mexico. She purchased the house straight from the developer so wasted no time in snapping up the property after being so persistent with her search for the perfect home.’
Molly proudly announced the beginning of her ‘new chapter’ to her 6.2million Instagram followers, saying: ‘A three-year search for our first home, which some of you have followed, has finally come to an end.
‘I know a lot of you won’t have been expecting me to do a home account as I have become a lot more private about what I post of our home life. However, having a home account is something that I have always dreamed of doing.’
Molly’s new abode, which has recently been refurbished, has a grand entrance complete with double front doors, marble flooring, and an elegant staircase.
The house has six spacious bedrooms, multiple bathrooms, the main boasting his and hers sinks, and a large living space, where Molly and Tommy will no doubt relax of an evening while watching their favourite Harry Potter films.

Molly-Mae has made £1.2million in profits via her company MMH Group Holdings and £848,000 from her self-tanning business Filter.
She added to her cash pot with her memoir released back in June 2022 – Becoming Molly-Mae – which sold at a cost of £20 and bulked up her fortune by £2million during the pandemic.
The star is also a brand ambassador for Beauty Works.
Known as the richest islander to exit the Love Island villa, Molly-Mae already has a net worth of £4.5million at 23.

Molly-Mae and Tommy welcomed their baby daughter Bambi Fury last month, making them parents for the first time.
The former Love Island star’s announced her birth in mid January, before going on to reveal they’d named their girl Bambi – which was met with a mixed response.
In a new video shared to her YouTube last week, Molly-Mae responded to the reaction the name received.
She remarked: ‘I was brought back down to earth very quickly of how nasty this world can be.’
She also told how she was initially apprehensive about revealing the name, and was left stunned by the feedback before being forced to switch off Instagram comments.
Despite the negativity, the star gushed how much she loved the moniker, revealing it was ‘beautiful’ and ‘unique’ – with the influencer having loved the name for years.
She explained: ‘The name reveal was a hard day for me. I switched Instagram comments off on that post. I was brought back down to earth very quickly of how nasty this world can be.
‘Because we’d literally known that our first baby girl was going to be called Bambi, we had gotten so used to the idea that that was going to be her name and to us it wasn’t really that unusual anymore.’

Molly-Mae could bank a whopping £2million-a-year and become the ‘ultimate mumfluencer’, it has been reported.
It comes as research from Buzz Bingo suggests their child could accumulate an estimated net worth of £7million in the future.
If Molly-Mae plays her cards right and strategically picks the right baby-related collaborations she could be set to increase her net worth even more.
Branding and culture expert Nick Ede told The Sun: ‘Her daughter’s name Bambi is brilliant and can be used from a brand point of view.
‘It’s fun and unique and also has a place in everyone’s childhood memories from the Disney film.’
Molly-Mae is already the Creative Director for fast fashion brand PrettyLittleThing but could expand her fashion deals into designing baby clothes.
She landed a six-figure deal when she signed with fast fashion chain PLT in 2019 to become their top dog.
But baby clothes can also be a lucrative market with stars like Billie Faiers, Ferne McCann and Stacey Solomon jumping on similar opportunities.
Nick told the publication: ‘I can see Molly-Mae jumping on this bandwagon and appealing to her millions of fans by creating a baby-wear line.’
She could also follow in the footsteps of other reality stars with a TV show following her as she settles into mum life.
Sam and Billie Faiers: The Mummy Diaries and Ferne McCann First Time Mum have huge viewing figures for ITV and a Molly-Mae spin off show could rake in more cash.
Another market Molly-Mae could now tap into could be the podcast market.
Lots of couples such as Made In Chelsea’s Oliver Proudlock and his wife Emma produce popular podcasts documenting their time as parents and Molly-Mae could do the same.
Happy Mum, Happy Baby by Giovanna Fletcher and Rob Beckett and Josh Widdicombe’s Parenting Hell are among other successful examples.
Molly-Mae could tap into a more unique market than her competitors by being a younger mumfluencer.
In a crowded market with the likes of Millie Mackintosh, Rochelle Humes, Binky Felstead and Lucy Mecklenburgh Molly-Mae has an edge being only 23.
She could well engage a younger market of mothers with sponsored posts and deals.
