Tommy Fury ‘moved out’ of his and Molly-Mae Hague’s home for 10 weeks to prepare for KSI fight

Tommy Fury has revealed he moved out his and fiancée Molly-Mae Hague’s £4 million Cheshire home ahead of his fight against YouTube star KSI at Manchester’s AO Arena last Saturday.

The former Love Island star, who walked away victorious from the boxing match, opened up about the preparations he underwent to ensure his win which included only seeing his daughter Bambi once a week.

Appearing on ITV’s Good Morning Britain on Tuesday, Fury told Susanna Reid and Richard Madeley he “can’t go from super dad to wanting to rip someone’s head off”.

The boxer said: “I removed myself from home, all the comforts at home. I’ve been seeing Molly and the baby once a week for the last 10 weeks.

“I can’t go from being super dad and a cuddly fiancé to wanting to rip someone’s head off.

“I thought removing myself so I can solely concentrate on the fight and the task in hand was needed, so that’s the reason why I moved out.”

Fury spoke to GMB about his victory over KSI (ITV)

He added: “It’s tough because I don’t like to balance home life with my job. I keep them both completely separate because nothing comes before my family and home life.

“It wouldn’t be fair to my family to come through the door with the fight on my mind and that’s all you need when you’re in training camp.”

Fury’s other half Hague, who he met on 2019’s Love Island, was at the AO Arena to show her support, but has previously explained she feels unable to watch his fights and it appeared that this time was no different.

He added: “First of all she is doing great, on the fight, she watched the whole thing through the floor. She didn’t look up once.

“It is what it is, I can understand it – she’s my fiancée, I’m the father to our beautiful daughter and she doesn’t want me taking punches.”
