Tyson Fury reveals plan for brother Tommy with Jake Paul fight hint

Tyson Fury has revealed his strategy to help Tommy Fury defeat Jake Paul when the pair lock horns in the ring, claiming he will put on a blonde wig and talk "b*******" to his brother.

The WBC champion's younger brother has been plagued by issues on two previous attempts to take the feud with his American counterpart into the ring. Their first scheduled bout was called off in December 2021 when Tommy withdrew with a broken rib, whilst the reason the second time around in August last year was that the Englishman was banned from entering the US.

However, fans of boxing allegedly won't have to wait long to see the pair face off with one another, as an agreement has been reached and is destined to be announced for next month.

Tommy is set to receive backing from 'The Gypsy King' himself, who recently hinted there will be fresh news of the fight when speaking to Seconds Out.

"Yeah, the big fight action. Tommy and Jake Paul have got it going on," he said. "There's an imminent announcement coming up for that as well. Yeah, we are almost over the line with that. We should be announcing that quite soon.

"But I'm not going to announce it because they've got to do it themselves. I'm going to put a blonde wig on, and I'm going to chat absolute boll***s every day in the gym just to get him [Tommy Fury] going."

There is no doubt that when Fury eventually touches gloves with Paul, it will be toughest test of his career so far. The Manchester-based boxer has won all eight of his fights so far, though the last six of those would not be classed as natural boxers.

The former Love Islander has also stoked the fire ever since the two made their intentions to fight clear, and has built pressure for himself by suggesting he will end the YouTuber's boxing career.

His father, John Fury Sr. has supported his son by backing up these claims too: "He won’t box again after getting in the ring with Tommy. It will be the end of his career on the 25th. If he doesn’t bottle it before, he won’t want to fight again after this because he is going to get a real good hiding.

"We are away from home and I believe he is a co-promoter so we are looking to knock him out. That is what we are training to do - to knock him out.

"Tommy is a big strong man who wants to win, he is all round too good for him. He has been tested a couple of times with a lot better fighters than Jake Paul and has come through with flying colours."
