This fight is in the news because this will be the first time when Paul will battle someone from the pro-boxing world.

In a recent chat with iFL TV, he said, ”He should still beat Jake Paul at counter, and if he can’t, there’s no way in the boxing world for him. It’s make or break for both men.” 

“Like I say, Tommy will train hard. He’ll do what he’s got to do. But has Tommy got the skill to beat him? Yes, has Tommy got the power to knock him out? Yes.” 

“Whatever desire he’s missing, Tyson will put there, I’m sure of that. But am I confident he can beat Jake Paul? of course I am. The only thing that can beat Tommy on that night is Tommy, his mindset.”

The WBC heavyweight champ, Tyson Fury has begun his training camps with ‘TNT’. ‘The Gypsy King’ has been through some rigorous moments inside the ring, wherein his mental ability was tested. That said, the elder brother will look to transfer all of his prowess to Tommy Fury, who’s all set to take on the current boxing sensation.

That said, 2021 has already turned out to be a significant year for boxing and getting a fight of this magnitude to conclude the year is something extraordinary.

Both the young guns would want to hammer each other from the pulp, thus come out on top to bag a sensational win. However, a man with the better composure and mindset will leave the ring with a ‘W’ to his name.
