‘Grab him by the blonde hair and smash him down’ – Tyson Fury tells Tommy Fury he needs to ‘spice up’ his fight prep with Jake Paul
Tyson Fury has suggested some rather unorthodox tactics on how Tommy Fury can “spice up” his fight preparation with Jake Paul.
The pair are set to face off in Saudi Arabia on February 26 and the build-up has already been fiery.
This fight has been scheduled three times now and so it’s clear that both men can’t wait to get in the ring.
When they came face to face before the recent thrilling world title clash between Artur Beterbiev and Anthony Yarde, Paul and Fury had to be separated by security.
During their exchange, Fury said, “Come on February 26, it’s been too long, he’ll never box again.
“I’m not 50, I’m not 40, I’m not an MMA guy, I’ve been doing this all my life and I swear to god you finished on Feb 26.”
Paul replied: “He fought with taxi drivers, he has no chin, it’s a joke. I end you on February 26 and you already know it.
“You’re going to crack under the pressure, you’re not made for this moment. You’re an impostor, it’s all bravado, it’s all false confidence.

That being said, Tommy’s older brother and world heavyweight champion, Tyson Fury, doesn’t think talking trash is enough and joked that “TNT” needed to get physical to generate more interest around the fight. .
“Who do you think has more needle, Tommy with him or the other way?” Tyson asked in an interview with BT Sport.
“I don’t know, it’s a good fight and they’re good dance partners.
“I think Tommy needs to talk a little more, actually. Spice it up a bit, get a little more in his face and ruffle his feathers.
“Grab him by the blonde hair and knock him down, maybe. I don’t know.”
