Tommy Fury better watch out because Jake Paul has a special person coaching him for his fight against the Fury brother.
YouTuber turned boxer Jake Paul is scheduled to take on the younger brother of Tyson Fury, professional boxer, Tommy Fury in an eight-round boxing match at the Amelie Arena in Tampa, Florida on December 18. Leading up to this fight, the tensions are through the roof as both sides have been clashing for quite some time.
Given that Tommy has his brother, Tyson Fury, the world heavyweight champion helping him prepare for his upcoming fight, Jake has decided to one-up his opponent by seeking the help of recently crowned lightweight champion George Kambosos Jr. In a recent interview with reporter Helen Yee, the Australian boxer revealed his relationship with the YouTube boxer.
“I think it will be a good fight. I think it will be a great fight. And I think he is very focused. As much as he is a YouTuber and has come from that sort of thing, he really dedicated himself in boxing. I think yeah he’ll be able to do the business but again, Tommy Fury is from that lineage of the Fury family,” said George Kambosos in the interview.
“If you believe it, you can achieve it,” George Kambosos Jr’s advice to Jake Paul
Last month, George Kambosos caused one of the biggest upsets in the world of boxing as he defeated the lightweight champion, Teofimo Lopez, via split decision at the Madison Square Garden to become the no. 1 lightweight boxer in the world. The fighter came in as a massive underdog and ended up winning the fight. George believes Jake too can beat the favorite Tommy Fury.
After George won the fight against Teofimo, Jake was one of the first big names to congratulate the Australian lightweight on the victory. “DONT F**K WITH AUSTRALIA CONGRATS GEORGEKAMBOSOS,” wrote Jake on his Twitter. Kambosos is returning the favor by helping the fighter out.
“He put up some great tweets and he was very excited about the fight. He was on the edge of the seat watching the fight and someone gave my number to him and he made the call and we had a chat. I was excited, he’s a star and I gave him a few tips on his fight because he is in a tough fight as well. But if you believe it, you can achieve it like I did,” said George talking to Helen Yee.
