Tommy Fury clip emerges as he takes on unbeaten 6ft 7in giant ahead of Paul bout

Tommy Fury looks primed and ready to take on Jake Paul in leaked sparring footage of him doing the rounds on social media.

The up-and-coming British fighter, 22, faces controversial YouTuberJake Paul on December 18 in Florida.

A clip of Fury sparring with 6ft 7in unbeaten cruiserweight Andrey Mangushev has been posted on Instagram ahead of the bout.

The video is believed to be old, and could have been shot when the former Love Island contest was in America in the summer.

Despite the clip's supposed aged, Fury's defensive skill, as well as his attack, were available for all to see.

His opponent in the footage, which was released by promotional team Warriors Boxing, appears to be Russian fighter Andrey Mangushev, who is now based in Miami.

The 23-year-old boasts a 5-0 record and is a lot taller and more experienced than Paul, something that should benefit Fury next month.

Fury was in Florida with his brother Tyson in the summer and returned to England to beat Jordan Grant in June.

In his next fight, he defeated Paul's sparring partner Anthony Taylor.

That set up a huge grudge match with Paul, who beat ex-UFC champion Tyron Woodley, 39, on the same card in Cleveland, Ohio.

While Paul, 24, has been preparing for the bout in sunny Puerto Rico, Fury has been based in his adopted hometown of Morecambe where he is being trained by Tyson.

Fury, who is 7-0, is usually coached and cornered by his dad John, but the 57-year-old is unable to travel to the US due to a previous criminal conviction.

It means Tyson and his own trainer Sugarhill Steward are set to station themselves in Fury's corner on fight night, with his father back home in the UK.

Nevertheless, John has been keen to talk up his son's chances and is already targeting Jake's brother Paul after the Manchester boxer wins in Florida next month.

Fury Snr. told Rob Moore on YouTube: "If he's on his game, Tommy, and he's firing on all four cylinders. Easy night's work, easy money and the winner goes on to bigger and better things.

"We'll get the brother out the game as well, then we'll start looking at conventional titles for him. A brother is gonna wanna redeem another brother isn't he?

"When he knocks Jake Paul out, the brother's gonna wanna take his part ain't he? But I don't think so because the hiding Tommy's gonna give Jake Paul, the other brother won't be interested either."
