Since he entered into the mainstream landscape of boxing, Jake Paul has taken shots at several A-listers in the world of combat sports. Putting no limits to his trash talk, the 24-year-old has gone on to call out Conor McGregor, Canelo Alvarez, and several stars. However, he has to satisfy himself with the likes of Tommy Fury for now.

Well, Paul has still found ways to pick a world champion in his current mix. ‘The Problem Child’ believes he is actually using Tyson Fury’s image to promote the fight against ‘TNT’. Paul connected with Seconds Out and shared his views on several aspects including his brother Logan Paul’s boxing career. Meanwhile, he specially mentioned Tyson Fury and how he is benefiting from ‘The Gypsy King’.

Jake Paul said, “I am using Tyson Fury to promote this fight. That’s the secret behind all of this. Like he is getting involved, he is using his platform. He is retweeting it, he is posting it. He is going to be asked about it in interviews he is selling the fight for me. You know, Tommy Fury is just like a pawn on the chessboard and I am taking him out December 18.”

Tyson Fury has actually got nothing to do with the fight. But his brother Tommy Fury represents the Fury bloodline, and that has urged ‘The Gypsy King’ to chime in. The WBC champion has already asked his brother to change the surname if he fails to beat Jake Paul. Thus, the fight is successful on the major boxing scene.
