Prior to the battle on February 26 in Riyadh, John Fury, the father of Tommy Fury, gives his son’s opponent, Jake Paul, some words of caution.
There were two potential fight dates set up between the two long-time rivals to finally resolve their dispute. They missed Madison Square Garden the first time due to travel issues, and Tommy missed Florida bout the second time due to a rib injury.

Tommy’s trainer, John, warns Jake Paul that the fight will take place this time. If Jake believes Tommy will not turn up, he will be very disappointed and mistaken.
“We can’t wait to get this fight on with you. There’s no way in the world — in this entire world — this fight ain’t gonna happen. So, if you’re dreaming in your own little boy’s brain, thinking that we’re not gonna show up and Tommy’s not gonna fight you, mate. Well, you’re gonna be very wrong.” John further added.

John added that The Problem Child should anticipate being carried off the arena on a stretcher. The ex-boxer also emphasized Paul’s loss, saying that the latter had no chance. Fury Senior also made fun of Jake’s most recent battle with Anderson Silva.
”And your last fight with [Silva] — that fake thing where you missed him, mate, and he fell on the ground — and watched it time and time again on the video. [Silva], you missed him, he fell down and got counted out. You’re in a real fight this time […]. So, advice to you, keep them up.” John said.

Tommy Fury fought Jevgenijs Andrejevs in his first professional boxing match in 2018. The bout took place at Manchester Arena. This was only the beginning of his success; over the next four years, he would go on to win seven more fights.
After all of the hype, in the battle between The Problem Child and TNT that will take place on the 26th of February, who do you think will come out on top?
