Tommy Fury 'breaks sparring partner's jaw' during training camp in huge warning to Jake Paul

Tommy Fury has sent out a major warning to his upcoming opponent Jake Paul.


Ahead of their anticipated boxing match on Sunday, 26 February, Tommy has been 'destroying his sparring partners' - and even managed to send one to the hospital with a broken jaw.

After months of back and forth and two cancelled bouts, the duo will finally settle their differences when they step into the ring in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, later this week.


To say there's a lot riding on this for both of them would be an understatement.

So it'll come as no surprise that the former Love Island star has been taking his training camp seriously.

The 23-year-old's dad, John Fury, spoke to Sportsmail about the intensive regime his son's been following in recent weeks.

"We've had excellent sparring. People have hit him back too if you know what I am saying," he told the outlet.


"We've had good class kids in the gym. We've had heavyweights in. Cruiserweights in. Light-heavyweights in. We've had them all.

"They've all been good, class, young, hungry men. But, bring it. He's been handling them very well."

If you're wondering how well, the Fury father revealed: "There have been a few visits to the hospital for the sparring partners but that's boxing. He's been doing them some damage.


"We've had a hairline fracture in the jaw and we've had a few knockdowns. We've had a few cold knockouts from Tommy.

"He's been destroying his sparring partners. You can ask them. He knows who they are. They know whether Tommy is the real deal or not."

John acknowledged the fact that if his son defeats his YouTuber-turned-boxer rival, it could spell the 'end' of Jake's career.

Elaborating on the training camp, he added: "Everything has gone to plan. He's been injury free. It's gone tremendously well.


"I am more than happy. He's put plenty of work in and he's done the grinding.

"I am hard on him but it pays off. I know how hard I have to be and I get the right balance. I have been doing this all my life."

Though many fans will have their money on Jake, you can't deny Tommy's been putting the work in.


In fact, John said they've done 'over 100 rounds of sparring', as well as running, circuit training and weights.

"It's all been intelligent, hard, brutal stuff we have been doing," he said. "We are training for Jake Paul like it's the light-heavyweight championship of the world."

In recent weeks, things have been heating up between the two camps, with Jake branding his opponent 'disrespectful' to some of the biggest names in boxing by not taking their fight seriously.

Tommy's partner Molly-Mae Hague, who recently gave birth to their first child, even got involved.

In a recent video posted to her YouTube channel, she and Tommy were discussing the difficulties they've been having with feeding two-week-old Bambi when the talk turned to the fight.

Tommy told viewers to 'be there or be square' on 26 February, with Molly-Mae adding: "For a demolition job."

Ouch - I guess we'll have to wait and see whether she's right or not.
