Tyson Fury will be helping his half-brother Tommy prepare for his December 18 showdown against Jake Paul.
According to John Fury, Tyson will be in Tommy’s corner and helping him prepare for the massive fight. The two undefeated boxers are massive social media stars so it’ll be a big fight but for John, he knows Tommy has what it takes to win.
“Tommy knows he’s up against a stacked deck, but he should still beat Jake Paul at a canter. And if he can’t, there’s now way in the boxing world for him,” Fury said to BT Sport (via TalkSport). “It’s make or break, for both men, but it’ll hit Tommy harder because Tommy’s supposed to be a professional boxer. Tommy will work hard, he’ll do what he’s gotta do. Has Tommy got the skill to beat him? Yes. Has he got the power to knock him out? Yes. All it is with Tommy – he’s young, can he handle the big occasion on the night? But I’m sure he’s thought about it many times before and he’s got the king of the ring in his corner.
Tyson’s gonna be in his corner that night. I think Tyson’s flying out there in a few weeks to help him out. Whatever desire he’s missing, Tyson will put there, I’m sure of that,” Fury continued. “Am I confident he can beat Jake Paul? Course I am. The only thing that can beat Tommy on that night is Tommy – his mindset. I know Jake Paul can’t beat Tommy, no matter what he does. Tyson will sort his head out so I’m looking for a Tommy win in explosive fashion – the end of Jake Paul.”
Tommy Fury is coming off a decision win over Anthony Taylor who is a main training partner of Jake Paul on the Paul-Woodley undercard. All throughout fight week, the two talked trash and now they will meet inside the ring.
