Tommy Fury will get in the ring with YouTuber-turned boxer Jake Paul in February

WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury has said his younger brother Tommy can stay in Saudi Arabia if he fails to beat Jake Paul.

Tommy Fury, 23, from Manchester, is set to face social media influencer-turned-boxer Jake Paul on 25 February.

It is the third time the fight has been scheduled after Fury withdrew due to a broken rib suffered while training in 2021.

Then last year, Fury was denied entry into the United States after his application was rejected.

The pressure is currently piling on Tommy, who is determined to win to keep the Fury reputation intact.

His older brother Tyson Fury, a two-time world heavyweight champion, expects Tommy to “chin” his opponent but joked that Tommy “can stay in Saudi Arabia” if he fails to beat Paul.

"I don’t think it’s been officially announced, but I hear an announcement is imminent. They are finally getting it on and are going to throw down. The two YouTube people get to battle it out for the king of the YouTubers. It’s going to be fun, and I expect Tommy to chin him. If he doesn’t he can stay in Saudi Arabia," Tyson Fury told Talk Sport.

John Fury, the father of the family, has vowed to retire his son from the sport if he does not win the highly-anticipated bout.

“There is no more boxing for him if he loses. But, I am 100 percent confident he will knock him out. It’s a big ask for Jake Paul because Tommy is much better than what he’s faced before, so fair do’s to him," John Fury told Talk Sport.

“It’s a foregone conclusion that Tommy will win. We are not leaving a stone unturned and are training as if this were against a world-class fighter. He’s working really well. Tommy will be very famous on the 26th of February.”

Fury is currently on an eight-fight winning streak and last fought professionally in April on the undercard of Tyson Fury vs Dillian Whyte at Wembley.

He beat Poland's Daniel Bocianski on points after scoring two knockdowns during the six-round fight.

The boxer made his professional debut against Jevgenijs Andrejevs on 22 December 2018 at the Manchester Arena, scoring a four-round points decision win.

He took time off from his boxing career in 2019 to star in the fifth series of ITV2 dating reality television show Love Island, in which he finished as runner-up with Molly-Mae Hague.
