On February 26, Tommy Fury (8-0, 4 KOs), younger brother of WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, takes on YouTube sensation turned boxer Jake Paul (6-0, 4 KOs). In a recent interview, Fury had some bold words in regard to his upcoming bout.
Saudi Arabia will be the location of the event. Until now, Paul’s opponents in boxing contests have mainly been MMA veterans. This will be Paul’s first time taking on a life-long boxer.
On foreign soil, the undefeated contender anticipates having a large following, including the entire Fury family.
“Everybody’s going to be out in Saudi. We’re coming with everybody. Tyson’s going to be there, all my brothers, everyone you’re used to seeing on fight night on the cameras on TV, they’ll all be there with me in Saudi Arabia. We’re all here, we’re all as one team and we’re ready to get the job done.”
“It’s absolutely amazing, I can’t say anything but. To have the heavyweight champion of the world – and in my opinion the best fighter ever – it’s amazing. What more can I say about it? Whatever problem I have in this game I can always go to him. He’s always going to be there, he’s always going to be there right with me.”
“I think we all know Tyson by now – and my dad – we all know how to sell pay-per-views, we all know how to hype a fight. I think that’s all that is really. My dad and Tyson both know what’s going to happen in this fight, Tyson’s been there ever since I started boxing, so has my dad. They know what I’m capable of, they know what my opponent is capable of and it’s going to be quite an easy night’s work.”
