The Daily Star are reporting the light-heavyweight is set to be given top billing on the show as he awaits his next career move as a professional.

Fury made his debut shortly after older brother Tyson fought to a contentious draw with WBC champion Deontay Wilder in Los Angeles.

But despite the gravitas of his older sibling, Tommy wants to be known as his own man.

Speaking before his debut, he said: “Tyson has done marvellously well and if I could just copy half of what he has achieved then I will be grateful. But I am here to make my own name.

“I don’t want to be known as someone’s brother.

“I want people to watch me because I am a fighter on my own merit and not because of who I am related to. My aim is to make fans turn out for me and not for my name.”

In March, he knocked out Callum Ide in just one minute and 34 seconds and is trained by former welterweight champion Ricky Hatton at his gym in Manchester.
