Tommy Fury has been warned he must knockout Jake Paul
Paul is yet to taste defeat in the ring
But John Fury has insisted Paul would struggle even fighting him
But the former Love Island star has been warned that if he can’t KNOCKOUT Paul then he will be retired straight after the fight.
Speaking to FairBettingSites, John said: “Let me tell you this much: If Tommy can’t knock Jake Paul out I’ll retire Tommy from the sport of boxing straight afterwards, I’ll have no more to do with it.
“I’ll say ‘look, you’re going nowhere’ because I don’t rate Jake Paul at all. I think Jake Paul would struggle with me.
“If I had a seven-week camp now and got the proper sparring and got my weight down, Jake Paul would struggle with me.
“If Tommy could not knock him into next week – and I mean do a number on him – he has no right looking at conventional boxing at all because Jake Paul would not win a proper amateur fight.
“He would not beat a decent-class amateur. Boxing a man 50 years old that needs a zimmer frame to get in the ring, come on.
“Tommy’s a livewire, the fight will be made at 13 stone 3-4 lbs, Tommy’s ideal weight and Tommy can punch as hard as a heavyweight.”
Paul is unbeaten in the boxing ring with a pro record of 6-0 after beating UFC legend Anderson Silva in October.

Negotiations between the two parties are ongoing, though Paul has agreed to fight in the UK – a clause which saw the last fight cancelled due to Fury being unable to enter the USA.
Fury Sr added: “But can we actually get Jake Paul in the ring? We’re going to find out very shortly because we’ve said ‘ok, yeah we’ll take it, whatever you’re offering, let’s get it on’.
“He needs to be sorted out, but I don’t think he will because I saw him that day over in Dubai and saw fear in his eyes.
“He’s not a fighting man. I got within feet of him, looked into his eyes – he ain’t going to want no part of Tommy.”
Brother and son Tyson Fury won in his comeback bout against Derek Chisora.
The Gypsy King won via a 10th-round TKO and faced off with Oleksandr Usyk after the fight.
A fight between Usyk and Fury would see a historic unification bout come to fruition due to the pair of them having all the heavyweight boxing belts in the modern era.
And the pair are on the verge of striking a deal according to the Ukrainian’s manager.
