World heavyweight champion Tyson has promised that his brother Tommy won’t be able to return to Manchester if he can’t beat YouTube star Paul in his first main event fight.

 

Tyson Fury has vowed not to allow his brother Tommy to come home if he doesn’t beat Jake Paul next month.

 

 

The world heavyweight champion was on hand at a media event yesterday to promote the pair’s bout at the Amalie Arena in Florida on December 18.

 

 

And while he said he respects YouTube star Paul, he believes his brother will hand him his first defeat when they meet in the ring.

 

 

“I think this is really good fight for everybody who is going to be watching around the world,” Fury told press via Zoom.

“There’s going to be a lot of people watching. A lot of people are interested in this fight.

 

 

“You’ve got two young, undefeated guys. I’m really looking forward to it. It’s going to be an excellent night.“I think Tommy will knock him out. No disrespect to Jake Paul, but like I said to Tommy, if he can’t knock Jake Paul out, fly to a foreign country and stay there because he ain’t coming home.”

 

 

 

The pair were supposed to go face-to-face at media events in Las Vegas and Tampa over the last few days.

But Love Island star Tommy had to return home from his Stateside training camp due to a family emergency, and is now training with his brother in Manchester.

 

 

And his brother isn’t the only one who will be unhappy if he loses, with his dad John saying he’ll be forced into retirement if he can’t get a comprehensive victory in America.

 

 

“I see Tommy splattering Jake Paul all over the ring, within four to five rounds,” Fury said during an appearance on the True Geordie podcast.

 

 

“If he doesn’t, it’s over for him! He knows that.

“No pressure Tommy lad, but let me tell you, you will be called Tommy Fumbles as well… if it’s a close fight, Tommy’s retired.”

 

 

Fury was unable to stop Paul’s considerably smaller training partner Anthony Taylor on his American debut, winning a comprehensive four-round decision.

 

 

But it was a performance which concerned a number of spectators, with former world champion Paulie Malignaggi branding the youngster “not a boxer” after watching.

 

 

“Fury’s got the Fury name but he’s probably just as much of a boxer as Jake Paul,” Malignaggi told iFL TV last week.

“It’s not like he’s got the pedigree of a boxer because of that.

 

 

“I thought he did, honestly, I had never seen him fight until the last Jake Paul card and I said ‘oh this kid is not a boxer’, he’s a reality TV guy who boxes.”

 

And Matchroom Boxing promoter Eddie Hearn has said that Fury will have to move to a desert island if he can’t get the job done.

 

 

“Logic would tell you a pro that boxed for a living and was also Tyson Fury’s brother should never lose to Jake Paul,” Hearn said.

“If Tommy loses, he should go to a desert island and just stay there for life. It would be the most embarrassing thing.

 

 

“Jake Paul is not horrific, there’s a lot of pro fighters worse than Jake Paul. I’ve seen them, I’ve had a lot of them on my shows.

“But it’s just the most embarrassing thing if he [Fury] loses that fight.”
