Speaking of his abilities, the heavyweight champ spoke about how his brother Tommy Fury knocked out ninety percent of the people that he sparred with. “Yeah, I do know he’s knocked out quite a few people. Tommy knocks out ninety percent of the people that he spars with or drops them at least,” said Tyson Fury in his recent interview with IFL TV.

“He’s a very hard puncher and Jake Paul will find it out tomorrow. I’ve got a hundred racks on it, thrown inside the stoppage. So, if he loses I’ll lose 100 bags as well. So, I’ve got three to one,” Fury added.
