Tyson Fury’s brother Tommy will be forced to QUIT boxing if he doesn’t KO Jake Paul in four rounds, warns dad John

Fury’s promoter Frank Warren has stated that the £1million bout is expected to take place in either November of December.

His brother Tyson has declared that Tommy’s career is done if he can’t beat the ex-Disney actor, while also claiming he will change his name.

He told Behind the Gloves: “If Tommy can’t splatter Jake Paul, I’ll retire him from boxing myself.

“He’s got ambitions of being a world champion, never mind beating some YouTube guy… His name’s Fury. If he can’t beat Jake Paul, I’ll have to change his name.”

And now their dad John has insisted that Tommy MUST knock Paul out otherwise he will not bother training him anymore.

Speaking on the True Geordie Podcast about whether it is a close fight, he said: “No chance. If it’s a close fight Tommy’s retired.

“If Tommy beats him and struggles to beat him, he’s retired from boxing.”

Asked why he feels so strongly, John added: “He [Jake Paul] is a YouTuber. He’s got to be knocking Jake Paul out.

“He’s got to box him and knock him out, he’s a YouTuber. And I’m not wasting my time on people in the gym because I haven’t got a lot of time left at 56-years-old.

“So I’m not going to train with somebody I’ve got no faith in. So I’ve told him, ‘unless you knock him out, pal, forget me with boxing.’ I’ll walk away.”

He continued: “I see Tommy splattering Jake Paul all over the ring, within four to five rounds. If he doesn’t, it’s over for him! He knows that.

“No pressure Tommy lad, but let me tell you, you will be called Tommy Fumbles as well.”

Tommy has declared he will destroy the Problem Child should they ever trade blows, insisting his rival won’t fight again inside the squared circle.

He told TMZ Sports: “I will end his boxing career. There is no more Jake Paul after we fight, that’s it.

“Jake Paul gets me nowhere in boxing terms. He’s not a boxer, so beating (him) doesn’t get me a world title shot, it doesn’t get me any respect from any of the other fights.

“Everyone knows what other fighters think of him, so it doesn’t get me anywhere. It’s a good payday, an easy fight, but then I’m going back into the proper boxing world.

“I’m going to win some titles, go down in history, and do what I’ve been doing my whole life.”
