Tyson Fury has vowed to put £100,000 on his brother Tommy to beat YouTuber-turned-boxer Jake Paul on August 6.
The junior Fury and Paul’s much-anticipated bout was finally confirmed on Thursday and Tommy’s brother Tyson expects him to beat the YouTuber convincingly.
The original date was postponed after Fury pulled out through injury, citing a chest infection and a broken rib.

Speaking in the aftermath of the bout being confirmed, heavyweight titan Fury said that he will ‘put his money where his mouth is’ in backing his younger half-brother to beat Paul but added that Fury Jr. has ‘no right’ in being a fighter if he cannot defeat the YouTuber.
He told iFLTV: ‘I’m backing Tommy and I will put my money where my mouth is. I have got £100,000 with anybody.
‘I’ll put it on Tommy and that’s it, that’s how I feel about it. If Tommy Fury can’t win against Jake Paul he has no right in being a fighter.’

He added: ‘I think Tommy knocks him out and he has got to believe in himself and go over there and put on a show. He has to enjoy it as he’s getting paid a lot of money to fight a guy who hasn’t fought on an actual boxer.
‘I don’t think either of them having anything to lose. He has had eight fights and he is getting paid a lot of money and Jake Paul has never fought an actual boxer.
‘Let’s just say Tommy gets paid millions of pounds for nothing if he loses, because he wouldn’t have won any title belt in England ever if he can’t beat Jake Paul.’
Fury was bullish on the advent of his fight being confirmed with Paul, stating that that Paul brothers’ boxing ‘charade’ was about to come to an end.

‘The Paul brothers’ boxing charade is about to come to an end once and for all,’ Fury said.
‘I am a boxer. My opponent plays boxing. Jake Paul has been dressed up to look like a boxer against retirees from other sports. On August 6, I will show the world that he does not belong in the ring.’
‘Thank you to my promoter Frank Warren, Most Valuable Promotions and Showtime for letting me permanently shut up Jake Paul. I look forward to headlining Madison Square Garden and knocking out this clown,’ he added.
