The long-awaited bout between Jake Paul and Tommy Fury has, at last, been scheduled. The legendary boxer Tyson Fury, however, already has his sights set on his brother fighting either KSI or Logan Paul next.
Jake and Tommy had been teasing each other about their fight for over two years at this point. They planned to settle their score in the ring on two separate occasions, but both times their match was called off due to unexpected circumstances. The door, however, has now been opened once again for the two undefeated boxers to square off against one another.

Tyson, Tommy’s older brother, recently talked to iFL TV and gave his thoughts on the highly anticipated bout. Tyson is happy that the fight is finally taking place after a two-year wait.
Tommy and Jake, according to the 34-year-old, have both talked a lot, so they need to deliver now and put up a solid fight. Fury also considers them novices with fame and popularity, so they should get in the ring and have a slugfest.
“I don’t think it’s going to be like a one-punch kind of job, I think Tommy can wear him out and stick it on him in the later rounds. As soon as Tommy hits him with some hard punches, I want to see what Jake Paul’s made of. When Tommy hits me with hard punches, it’s hurt me. I know he ain’t as tough or as big as me, so he’s definitely going to be feeling pain and a lot of it,” Tyson said.
Tyson Fury busts out laughing when Jake Paul vows to 'knock Tommy Fury tf out' and have his family disown him.

There are further goals that the Gipsey King has set for his younger brother. In his opinion as soon as Tommy prevails against Jake, he should move on to challenge the other Paul brother, Logan. Next in line for a fight if Logan doesn’t give his consent is another British internet icon KSI
“When he beats Jake Paul, I’d like to see him fight the brother Logan and then if not Logan maybe a British celebrity like KSI. I was going say the other guy then, but he’s a bit smaller,” Tyson further added.
