It is not usual for pro-boxers with less than 10 career fights to headline a Showtime main event. However, 7-0 undefeated boxer Tommy Fury is now all set to pull that off against wildly successful YouTuber-turned-boxer Jake Paul. The two are scheduled to go head to head on December 18 in Florida.

A new clip shared by ‘The Gypsy King’ shows him helping his brother build abdominal strength by bouncing and hitting him with a medicine ball. He is clearly working towards putting on a show and killing the ‘Paul effect’ once and for all.

However, that is not the only thing fans picked up on in this video.

This clip also revealed that Tommy Fury could be losing hair. He clearly has a bald spot, and it is now making fans question if he is turning into his brother, Tyson Fury.

Tyson Fury wants you to embrace baldness and not shy away from it

Even if Tommy Fury is indeed growing bald, he has a brother to look up to and learn a thing or two about coping with hair loss. In a recent interview, Tyson Fury spoke about how hair loss is not something worth stressing out over.

The Rock’s bald and he’s the most famous actor in the world. It doesn’t bother him. The Gypsy King’s bald and it doesn’t bother me. I used to have a lion’s mane of hair but lost it all.”

Did it affect me? Nah. Did I let it get me down? Nope. Use it as a positive – you don’t have to get it cut all the time. It’s a sign of getting older, innit? Some people lose their hair, some people don’t.”

Embrace being bald. Don’t be in denial. Shave it off if it looks a mess. Get rid of it. Grow a beard, get some facial hair going. That’s what I did, I’ve got the upside-down haircut!” said Tyson Fury.

In June, Fury even revealed that he had received offers from some of the top hair transplant experts; however, he declined all of those offers.

That’s the old Tyson who used to have masses of curly hair, the big black mop of stallion hair. But I am not 17 or 21 anymore, the Gypsy King is now a bald guy and I like it. Me and my wife, Paris, agreed if I put the hair back on I’ll just be trying to turn back the clock and I only want to look forward,Fury added.
