‘Make him a worse fighter’ – Jake Paul says Tommy Fury’s career is being ruined by Papa John

JAKE PAUL has taken Tommy Fury’s father – John – to task for making his rival a worse fighter.

John is Tommy Fury’s personal trainer and has always been with him, even when he was coaching Ricky Hatton and Shayne McGuigan.

But Paul, 26, who has transformed himself into a boxer after building his profile via YouTube, believes John is holding back Tommy’s career.

He said, “I’m getting 33 percent better every year because I’ve only been boxing for three years.

“I’m growing exponentially while Tommy has been doing this for 12 years. So how much can his skills really improve?

“He’s really stuck in his way as a boxer, especially with his dad training him.

“He’s worked with other trainers who are much better, but his father actually hinders him and makes him a worse fighter.”

The “problem child” unearthed ahead of Sunday’s showdown in Saudi Arabia.

The boxing match has been wanted since 2021 but has been repeatedly postponed as Fury has twice withdrawn.

While Fury, 23, has had other coaches, he has insisted John was always his “main coach”.


He said: “My father is my main coach, he has always been my main coach.

“For everyone out there saying we can’t do this or that, this is another fight where we’re going to show you what we can do.”

Both Paul and Fury go into the fight undefeated and with four wins by KO.
