Tyson Fury warns Big John Fury not to start fight with Jake Paul at Tommy Fury fight
| Last updated
Ahead of Tommy Fury's long-anticipated fight against Jake Paul this evening, Tyson Fury has warned his dad, Big John Fury, to not get involved.
After months of back and forth and two cancelled bouts, Tommy and Jake will finally settle their differences when they step into the ring at the Diriyah Arena in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, tonight (26 February).
To say there's a lot riding on this for both of them would be the understatement of the century.
Well, ahead of the fight, WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury has met with his brother's team to give them a bit of a pep talk ahead of the fight.
In true Tyson fashion, he gave Tommy's team a pep talk in the style of Tommy Shelby from Peaky Blinders, and fans are well and truly loving it.
In a video posted on social media, Tyson shouted: "Right it's Tommy's fight day, there is no fighting.
"No fighting Hughie, no fighting James and no fighting Shane. And most of all no fighting John."
However, John wanted to be involved in this pep talk, as he shouted back: "If someone gets in my face, I am knocking them out. I don't care I mean what I say."
Despite the jokingly interruption, Tyson continued: "I don't care; it is Tommy's fights day let's keep it on our best behaviour. Let's show them over here how good we can be."
On Twitter, the video has been viewed close to 800,000 times, with many boxing fans flocking to the comments to react to the hilarious pep talk.
"That was like a backstage promo from WCW Nitro, John Fury playing the role as Scott Steiner and Tyson Fury playing the role as Kevin Nash," one person said.
A second added: "Anyone get the feeling Tyson isn’t taking this too seriously."
Meanwhile, a third remarked: "Your old man's a national treasure @Tyson_Fury."
John has actually had a bit of a confrontation with Jake before, as he jumped into the ring during his son's last fight in November.
Jake was commentating on the fight, when he was confronted by John after Tommy's bout.
However, John actually seems to be pretty fond of his son's rival, as revealed in a recent interview with the Mirror.
He said: "I'm one million pre cent confident it will be Tommy, but I'm sure they can be friends after. "They're just young lads doing their job and Jake Paul is very good at that job!
"I'm having a game with him like he's having a game with me, always remember that.
"I'm an old, experienced guy in this field. I like the kid, I like him and his brother Logan, I like all of them YouTubers, they bring good stuff and at the end of the day I'm excited talking to them."
