Tyson Fury insists brother Tommy ‘looked terrible on purpose’ in last fight with Anthony Taylor to secure Jake Paul bout

TYSON FURY insisted his brother Tommy ‘looked terrible on purpose’ in his most recent win – in order to secure a fight with Jake Paul.

Fury signed a two-bout deal with US network Showtime and in August fought and beat Paul’s sparring partner Anthony Taylor.

It went the full four rounds and was comfortable enough for the Brit but the performance lacked any real conviction.

Paul, 24, later on in the night beat ex-UFC champion Tyron Woodley, 39, and set up a celebrity grudge match with Fury, 22, set for December 18.

The YouTube star has continued to mock his rival’s performance, but Fury’s older brother Tyson claimed it was all part of the masterplan.

He told Queensberry Promotions: “Tommy looked terrible on purpose so he could get this fight, that is what clever people do.

“Tommy could have his worst night ever and still beat Jake Paul.

“He could probably turn up with broken ribs, a broken left hand, two left feet, his clothes on back to front and a flue and he would still beat him.

“That is how confident I am that he can beat Jake Paul.”

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 Woodley was his biggest to date, while Fury improved to 7-0 by beating Taylor, 32.

WBC heavyweight champion Tyson, 33, was joined by his brother Tommy and dad John in a press conference with Paul, who spoke virtually.

And he predicted: “Poor old Jake Paul will get severely knocked out. “[Jake and Logan Paul] are not fighters. Tommy will knock him into next week.
