John Fury has had some choice words for those in the boxing world who have picked against son Tommy in his clash with Jake Paul on Sunday night.
The pair will lock horns at the Diriyah Arena in Saudi Arabia to put to bed months of online trash talk, below the belt insults and heated back and forth.
And ‘Big John’ told ID Boxing, in no uncertain terms, that he was not particularly impressed with those who had gone against Tommy in the biggest fight of his career to date.
“All those so-called professionals from our own country, that’s disgusting by the way.”
“When I see them, I’m going to personally slap them straight in the teeth, for going against a professional athlete – who’s fighting a YouTuber!”
“But that’s what they deserve, I’ve got no respect for them whatsoever. I never want to see any of them again, they’re useless at what they do, and they all want sacking.”
“Sack them off! Because jealousy rules their brain.”
Typical no nonsense talk from the head of the Fury clan, who previously had a run in with Carl Frampton after he made the unforgivable sin of not picking a Fury to win.
This weekend is actually the third time Paul and Fury have been scheduled to fight, with the Brit pulling out on both occasions before – the first due to a rib injury and then after being refused entry into the United States
The two agreed an ‘all or nothing’ money bet at the fiery press conference, adding even more intrigue to the matchup, although Paul claimed at the weigh in today that Fury had refused to sign this.
The fight has landed on pay per view on BT Sport Box Office in the UK, with the price set at £19.95. US fans can watch via ESPN+ for $49.99.
