McGuigan told SecondsOut: “I feel like he had a good jab, he had good feet and really that is enough to beat Jake Paul, in my eyes.

“A guy who is explosive, throws a good right hook over the top but really leaves his feet behind him, is not programmed to punch properly.

“Reasonably fast hands and it’s all in rotation but he doesn’t move his feet, and track and punch, he’s boxing guys that are static and standing there.

“So, yeah I think if he sticks to the jab, gets himself moving and doesn’t trade up with him just busts him up with the jab for three or four rounds, he should beat him.”

Fury, 23, becomes the first opponent Paul, 26, will face with a recognised professional boxing record.

And McGuigan believes his experience around two-time champion Tyson, 34, sets him up for success in the Middle East.

He said: “Well, understanding boxing you’ve got to say that Tommy Fury knows a lot more about boxing than Jake Paul.

“Because he understands it, he’s been around it, he’s seen it first-hand what you have to do to win world title fights.

“How you have to spar and how you have to go through these training camps.

“Not just setting up a ring in your house, eating cereal and whatever and going and doing a little session, and then going out and making a little YouTube video and going back and doing another little session.

“That’s not how world champions train, at least he’s been round a gym that knows what you need to do to win these fights.

“Jake Paul’s a good athlete and he’s getting success through his athletic prowess but not necessarily through his boxing technical ability. So it does lie in Tommy’s favour.”
