Jake Paul vs Tommy Fury: Is Tyson Fury In Tommy's Corner?

Here's everything you need to know about Tyson Fury appearing at Paul vs Fury

The much-anticipated contest between Jake Paul and Tommy Fury has been confirmed, but will Tyson Fury be in his brother's corner for the fight?

This will be the biggest fight of Tommy's career, with the massively controversial Paul being one of the top mainstream names in the 'celebrity' boxing space.

Having arguably the best heavyweight boxer in the world in his corner would certainly be a major bonus for Tommy, but will Tyson be there in the United States to help?

Tommy's father John Fury recently spoke to BT Sport ahead of the fight regarding the mentality of his son as he prepares to enter the ring against the YouTuber turned pro boxer.

"Tommy knows he's up against a stacked deck, but he should still beat Jake Paul at a canter. And if he can't, there's no way in the boxing world for him.

"It's make or break, for both men, but it'll hit Tommy harder because Tommy's supposed to be a professional boxer.

"Tommy will work hard, he'll do what he's got to do. Has Tommy got the skill to beat him? Yes. Has he got the power to knock him out? Yes.

"All it is with Tommy – he's young, can he handle the big occasion on the night? But I'm sure he's thought about it many times before and he's got the king of the ring in his corner.

"Am I confident he can beat Jake Paul? Course I am. The only thing that can beat Tommy on that night is Tommy - his mindset. I know Jake Paul can't beat Tommy, no matter what he does."

"Tyson's going to be in his corner that night" John Fury revealed. "I think Tyson's flying out there [to the US] in a few weeks to help him out.
