Paul and Fury have appeared to be rivals for a long time, and have been brutal while unleashing verbal slurs on each other. Besides, their upcoming fights can be a ticket to staging them in a potential scrap. However, Tomy Fury doesn’t seem to focus on ‘The Problem Child’. Before his showdown at a Showtime PPV, Tommy Fury connected with BT Sport and addressed several scenarios.

Referring to Paul, ‘TNT’ said, “My focus isn’t on Jake Paul. My focus is on the opponent at hand. I am gonna deal with him. I have trained. You know my dad can back me up in this. I have trained like I have got a shot at the WBC world title. I have trained as hard as I possibly can for this, I am not overlooking anybody.”

Tommy Fury, 6-0, will be the second opponent to his rival, Anthony Taylor. On his boxing debut in 2017, Taylor suffered a defeat and now boasts a record of 0-1. So, he really has a scarce chance of overpowering ‘TNT’. Nevertheless, Taylor has trained with Jake Paul for this particular camp.

So, Fury can actually see a piece of Paul when he collides with Taylor. Winning the showdown will be highly beneficial. But losing it will be equally fatal for Fury’s upcoming plans.

Jake Paul vs Tommy Fury- The feud continues

Akin to ‘TNT’, ‘The Problem Child’ will have the toughest battle of his active career against former UFC champion Tyron Woodley in the main-evet. Paul will try to turn himself 4-0 by beating ‘T-Wood’. Meanwhile, Woodley’s departure from the UFC had him sidelined from the combat world. He can only regain relevancy by vanquishing Jake Paul on fight night.
