Jake Paul will take on Tommy Fury in Florida next month and believes he already has the upper hand on his rival..
Jake Paul claims he was deep into his training camp while Tommy Fury smoked cigars at brother Tyson’s after party.
Paul and Fury will clash in Florida next month as they look to settle their long-running feud.
The YouTube star has based himself in Puerto Rico to prepare while Fury is in Las Vegas where he will soon be joined by heavyweight world champion Tyson.
And Paul claims to have a seven-week head start as he looks for his fifth professional victory.
“I was secretly in camp for seven weeks before Tommy signed the contract while he was at the club partying, smoking cigars at his brothers fight, and eating Krispy Kreme’s on cute dates with Molly,” he wrote on Instagram.
“For the first time in my career the oddsmakers made me the underdog for this fight. I LOVE IT. I’ve been the underdog my whole life. Always been counted out. Always had the uphill battle.
“All of my opponents have cut corners and taken me lightly. By this time it’s too late to make changes to try and beat me 🙂 Good luck Tommy. December 18 your career is over.”
Tommy and Tyson partied the day after the latter’s KO win over Deontay Wilder last month.
The brothers were joined by their entourage at a pool party at Wet Republic in Sin City.
Fury has returned to Las Vegas for his training camp and will have Tyson in his corner on fight night.
His father John, however, will not be part of his team as he is banned from entering America due to his criminal record.

Fury and Paul will come face to face later today during a press conference before flying to Florida to do the same on Monday.
They are expected to agree on a $500,000 bet which would see Fury change his name to “Tommy Fumbles” if he loses next month.
Paul, meanwhile, would have to pay his opponent $500,000 if he loses for the first time.
“Mr Paul contractually agreed to have his guaranteed purse reduced by $500,000 and paid to Mr Fury by Showtime within two business days of the fight should Jake lose,” Paul’s manager Nakisa Bidarian told TalkSPORT.
“Quid pro quo, Mr Paul contractually required for Mr Fury to have $500,000 of his purse held back until Mr Fury legally became Mr Fumbles.”
