JAKE PAUL insists he’s ‘not’ worried about Tyson Fury training Tommy for their grudge match next month.
Love Island star Tommy has enlisted the help of his heavyweight champion brother for his December 18 grudge match with Paul.
But the presence of The Gypsy King in Tommy’s camp has been welcomed by Paul, who reckons he’ll help them sell more pay-per-views.
When asked if he was worried about Tommy being trained by Tyson, Paul told TMZ: “Not at all, not at all. I have coach Druski.
“Floyd Mayweather was in camp with Tyron Woodley to try to get Tyron Woodley to beat me. And Nate Robinson.
“I’m not worried about it all. I think it makes the fight better. It just promotes the fight more.
“And Tyson can teach Tommy and he can tell him what things are like.
“But he can’t go in there and fight for him.”

Paul, 24, is looking forward to seeing if Tommy can prove he’s worthy of the Fury name, which he’ll have to change if he loses their showdown.
He said: “The beautiful thing about this fight is the unknown. Is he actually a Fury, or will we find out that he’s just a half Fury?
“Does he have the heart like his brother, or is he just living in the shadow of his brother.
“The beautiful thing about this fight is stepping into the unknown, because this is also my first time fighting a real boxer, whatever that means?
“He’s undefeated, he’s young, same age, same weight, same height, so it’s really a perfect match-up.
“We’re just going to see who worked harder, who wants it more and who has that dog inside of them.”
Tommy, 7-0, has been engaged in a back and forth with Paul for several months and is planning to close the book on their rivalry in emphatic fashion.
But has Paul has vowed to take the 22-year-old into deep waters, saying: “I will TKO him in the later rounds.
“He hasn’t had a fight past four rounds so I think he’ll be gassed.
“I think this will be the first time he’s getting punched in the face by someone who can actually hit and is the same weight as him.
“He’s always fought smaller guys with losing records. So I think he’s going to fade. I know he’s going to fade.”
