Referring to the latest presser between ‘TNT’ and ‘The Problem Child,’ Jon Fury said, “In the press conference the other day, he won’t remove his glasses now eyes are tell-tale to everything. You know he has grown a big beard, which people who understand know what I am talking about, know where I am coming from.”

“What you are doing here is trying to enlighten people in the world today that it is illegal to use steroids. And that’s what he is doing to gain an edge and I feel sorry for him. Because we are not bothered anyway. The talent of Tommy, the power of Tommy is going to move straight through whether he is using it or not.”

John Fury further explained how he had expected a fair fight between Tommy Fury and Jake Paul. But the current scene seems to have put doubts into the mind of the 57-year-old. However, John Fury has faith in Tommy Fury’s abilities and is confident he will be victorious.
