According to YouTuber-boxer Jake Paul (6-0, 4 KOs) from the USA, who will face another prospect Tommy Fury (8-0, 4 KOs) this weekend, the famous older brother of rival Tyson Fury supposedly knows deep down that the American will win. He expressed this opinion in an interview.
BT Sport Boxing.
“I think he knows that I will win. Because when he talked about our fight, he didn’t say something like “Tommy wins” or “Tommy will kick his ass”… It was more like “this is going to be a great fight and I have to bet on Tommy” because he’s my brother,” Paul explained.
He added that Tyson, when talking about the Tommy fight, “didn’t explain how or why his brother could win.”
“I don’t know if Tommy believes in himself. Probably just good money at stake, and he was forced into this – the fans, the media, the family, ”said Jake.
How much Paul and Fury will earn per fight. Spoiler: millions of dollars
As Paul put it, “probably Molly also said to him: hey, we will have a baby soon, and I can’t constantly earn for us in this pair”: “Well, how much did he receive? 20K per fight? Minus taxes, and what remains? It’s probably enough for diapers.”
We’ve got a much tougher opponent for Jake if he gets past Tommy. Fellow heavyweight Carl Froch doesn’t believe in him enough to bet £200,000 on Paul.
