What will Tommy Fury do next? How ex-Love Island star will rake in £1.1m fee for KSI bout – then could net £10m windfall and eclipse partner Molly-Mae – as PR guru predicts: ‘This is Tommy’s time’
Tommy Fury’s £1.1million fee to fight KSI should be more like £4million – but he could net another £5million from spin-offs including fitness plans and a Netflix series by the spring of 2024, MailOnline can reveal today.
The Love Island star and boxer, 24, may soon eclipse his influencer partner Molly-Mae Hague, 24, who is said to earn £2million-a-year and can secure a £20,000 fee for a single Instagram post.
One of Britain’s top PR experts, Mark Borkowski, says Fury is on track to make £10million by 2025 due to social media driven events like tomorrow’s KSI bout. He told MailOnline: ‘Do they care about the cuts and bruises? No! Their focus is on the till receipts’.
Brand and Culture expert Nick Ede said that Tommy Fury is going to make ‘millions’ from more boxing, business spin-offs and also reality TV – even after collecting his £1.1million fee from his bout with KSI tomorrow.
He said: ‘All eyes are going to be on Tommy Fury. He is now at the top of his game and in top form and even if he loses he will still be a winner. He’s recently wowed social media with his extremely muscular shred and I can see him launching a fitness plan ready for the new year and new year new you. That will make him millions.
‘With the success of the Fury TV show on Netflix I can see him being poached to create content for the streaming giant and command a huge fee. With a rematch with Jake Paul on the cards too, this is Tommy’s time and I can see him making over £5million in the next six months from brand, pr and promotional deals and his matches too’.

Tommy Fury’s earnings could outstrip Molly-Mae’s for the first time in the coming years
Mark Borkowski believes he will make more cash fighting YouTubers than professional fighters.
He said: ‘The earning potential remains on course. These celebrity influencer fights supercharge the bank balances by harnessing star power, sparking intrigue, and captivating audiences beyond traditional sports enthusiasts. It’s all about crossover audiences and the traction driven by Social Media hype’.
A rematch with Jake Paul looks on the cards. Fury said recently: ‘At the end of the day, Jake’s alright. Jake’s a lot better of a man than KSI I can tell you that. But at the end of the day I’m focussed on KSI, I’m going to come for him and then we can sit round the table and I’m pretty sure it won’t be the last dealings with the Pauls.’
Jake Paul says that his rival’s $1.5million (£1.1m) fee is too low
He said on his podcast: ‘KSI is offering you like $1.5m which is way underpaid for Tommy, especially coming off that win. Tommy should be making $5-6m and it’s crazy and bizarre to me that Tommy is even entertaining that’.
Fury, who had his first child Bambi with Miss Hague in January, settled his grudge match with Jake Paul in February 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 reportedly received a £1.6million ($2m) purse – and 35 per cent of the PPV money. In total, the 24-year-old earned £3.7million ($4.5m). Paul’s fight purse was £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.

Both Molly-Mae Hague and Tommy Fury have made huge sums from modelling and clothing deals
Molly-Mae Hague and Tommy Fury became official just weeks after their first villa date and moved in together in Manchester a month after landing back in the UK in 2019.
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.
Molly’s 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.
Already an influencer before joining the show, Molly-Mae has amassed 7.8 million Instagram followers and landed a six-figure deal when she signed with fast fashion chain PLT in 2019 to become their creative director.
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 24.
Tommy, the younger brother of heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, is a boxer himself.
He has an unbeaten boxing record and is said to have signed a six-figure deal to become the face of boohooMAN following his stint in the villa.
He is worth a reported £2.4million.
