In the Jake Paul grudge match, Tyson Fury provides brother Tommy a “ace up his sleeve.”
Tyson Fury’s presence in Tommy Fury’s training camp, according to former two-weight world champion Paulie Malignaggi, will offer the British fighter an advantage versus Jake Paul.
Tommy Fury has been advised that working with his brother, heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, will give him a “ace up his sleeve” in preparation for his massive grudge bout against Jake Paul.
On December 18, Fury will fight YouTuber-turned-boxer Paul in an eight-round catchweight match in Tampa, Florida.
The 22-year-old, who is dating Molly-Mae Hague from Love Island, had intended to train in the United States with Tyson’s head trainer SugarHill Steward.
However, those preparations have been put on hold as he was forced to return to the United Kingdom due to a “family issue.”
Instead, Tyson and his father John will keep him on his toes as he prepares for the greatest bout of his professional career to yet.
Paulie Malignaggi, a former two-weight world champion, believes this is a good thing, and that Tyson will be a beneficial influence on his brother in the build-up to the fight.
“In the United States, I’m hearing a lot of people pick Tommy Fury. He has an ace up his sleeve in the form of his younger brother, Tyson “Boxing Social spoke with Malignaggi.
Between Tommy Fury and Jake Paul, who will win? Let us know what you think in the comments area.
“I’ve seen some films and other materials. He’s assisting him in his training and participating in camp. Jake and Tommy both have a lot of work to do, but I believe Tommy is motivated by having Tyson alongside him.
“Jake isn’t surrounded by any idiots either. BJ Flores is a shrewd businessman, and he’ll have him prepared as well. However, I believe it is a true 50-50 battle.
“Jake battling a boxer isn’t something I’d consider. Jake, a reality star turned boxer, is pitted against Tommy, another reality star turned boxer. Is that all there is to it?” Since turning pro last year, Paul has faced a diverse cast of characters, including a fellow YouTuber, a former basketball star, and two retired MMA fighters.
The polarizing 24-year-old wants to pit himself against “real” boxers, beginning with Fury, whom he predicts would be knocked out in the last rounds of their bout.
