Tommy Fury has heaped praise on 'amazing mother' and girlfriend Molly-Mae Hague by calling her 'the best woman anyone could ask for'.
After the long-standing feud between Jake Paul and Tommy Fury finally reached its conclusion on Sunday evening (26 February), the Manchester-born boxer has praised the former Love Island star during an interview on Good Morning Britain.
On the night, Tommy ended Jake's perfect 6-0 record after his win by a split decision.
He is now 9-0 up on his professional record and will earn a place in the WBC cruiserweight rankings as a result.
“For the past two and a half years, this is all that’s consumed my life,” he said.
“Tonight I made my own legacy. Molly, this fight was for you and for you, Bambi, I love you.
“I had a dream and a vision that I would win this fight and no one believed me.
"I had pressure on my shoulders and I came through. This to me is a world title fight - I’ve trained so hard for this."
The pro-boxer concluded: "This was my destiny, we did it.”
And now, during an interview on the ITV show, Tommy has been more than appreciative of Molly-Mae.
He said: "At the end of the day, this career is for those two.
"When I was in training camp, she was an amazing mother.
"She is the best woman anyone could ask for and because I was in training camp, I owe everything to her."
After bagging a reported £3.7 million for the fight, Tommy admits that he 'did very well at the end of the day'.
"It's a career high pay day for me," he said.
"Well, not for me, because everything I do is for my little girl Bambi.
"Everything I do is to make sure she has a happy life."
Despite losing on the night, Jake congratulated his opponent and was pretty humble in his response.
The 26-year-old said: “I felt flat, I got sick twice in this camp and injured my arm. It wasn’t my best performance, but I’m not making excuses and I’ll come back stronger.
“All respect to Tommy - he won. I deserve a rematch, I don’t know if I agree with the judges. I’ve already won in life - I have an amazing family, amazing friends and I’ve made it further than I ever thought I would.”
