Tommy, half-brother of world heavyweight champion Tyson, is coached by his father John, who has said his son’s 18 December fight with YouTube star Paul represents “good business”.
While Tommy Fury and Paul’s purses have not been revealed ahead of their clash in Florida, John Fury told entrepreneur Rob Moore on YouTube: “Listen, Tommy’s getting paid more money for this than some world champions.
“He’s getting paid in the millions, so if we get millions for getting wet we’re gonna do it, because it’s good business.”
John Fury also suggested that Tommy could take on Paul’s older brother Logan after the impending bout, saying: “If he’s on his game, Tommy, and he’s firing on all four cylinders, [it’s an] 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.”
Former Love Island contestant Fury is 7-0 as a professional boxer, while Paul is 4-0 with wins over fellow YouTuber AnEsonGib, ex-NBA star Nate Robinson, and former MMA champions Ben Askren and Tyron Woodley.
