TOMMY FURY is sparring ‘top class kids’ who are ‘touted to be world champions’ in training to fight Jake Paul, his dad John said.
Tommy fights the YouTube star on December 18 in Florida over eight rounds in a 192lb catchweight bout.
Due to a prior criminal conviction, John is unable to travel to America to corner his son, with eldest Tyson and his coach Sugarhill Steward taking charge.
But the proud dad has been in camp with Tommy, 22, and WBC heavyweight champion Tyson, 33, in their Morecambe training base.
And John promised Paul, 24, poses no threat to them, due to the high level sparring they have been doing.
He told Boxing Social: “People like to see you do well, but not as well as them.
“But I’m telling you now, however they feel, they feel bad enough today, but come the 19th of December, they’re going to feel a lot worse.
“Because they are praying for Jake Paul to do something what is impossible.

“This is impossible, I’m saying impossible for Jake Paul to even give him a fight.
“We’re sparring top class kids here, touted to be world champions. Olympic bronze medallists in Tokyo, ten and 15-0 guys.
“The best we’ve got, the best light-heavyweights, the best cruiserweights, and the best heavyweights, this man has been dealing with them.
“So what the hell in cat and hell’s chance does Jake Paul stand in beating Tommy? But, you know, jealousy, keep it coming.
“The Furys thrive off hate. We’re the most trolled and hated people on earth, but you know what? We’re on top of the world.
“So, all them haters, keep hating, you’re making us very rich in doing so.”
In Paul’s first three fights, he beat YouTuber ‘AnEsonGib’, ex-NBA star Nate Robinson, 37, and retired UFC welterweight Ben Askren, also 37.
But his win last time out against ex-UFC champion Tyron Woodley, 39, was his biggest to date.
On the undercard that night, Tommy improved to 7-0 by beating Paul’s sparring parter Anthony Taylor, 32, setting up the celebrity grudge match.
