Jake Paul will mentally mess with Tommy Fury and beat him before the fight, says Eddie Hearn as he reveals his prediction
According to Eddie Hearn, JAKE PAUL will mentally pummel Tommy Fury into defeat before they clash in their Saudi showdown.
The social media sensations are set to meet at the end of the month in a Diriyah dust that was almost two years in the making.
Problem child Paul has played plenty of mind games with the youngest Fury brother – including revealing the birth of his child.
Fury looked frustrated and angry when the pair faced each other in London last week, so much so that Hearn reckons Paul could deliver a decisive blow before they trade heavy leather.
During an appearance on The MMA Hour, the Matchroom Boxing boss said: “You have to be careful with the way Jake speaks personally about things like the Tommy Fury fight.
“Not necessarily with Tommy Fury, but there’s a fine line in this world between something going terribly wrong.
“But I think he’s going to mess with Tommy mentally.
“And I just think by the time they get in the ring — when they get in the ring — I think Tommy’s going to be defeated.”
Fury – the 23-year-old brother of WBC heavyweight champion Tyson – has recorded a perfect 8-0 in his pro career but has so far failed to impress boxing purists.
Hearn said of the Love Island star: “Tommy Fury is incredibly limited but he’s a fighter, he’s a boxer.

“The whole criticism of Jake is ‘You’ve never fought a boxer’ – he’s about to do that.
“Not a very good one, but still a boxer.
“It’s just a bit embarrassing for Tommy Fury if he were to lose.
“It’s embarrassing to lose to Jake, that’s the reality – for a boxer.

“I mean, I would be embarrassed to lose to Jake Paul and I would be too.
‘”He’s still not very good.”
Paul has vowed to end Fury’s career with a viral knockout, something Hearn believes will come to fruition.
He said, “I think Jake Paul will win by KO.”
