Tommy Fury has no doubts about the outcome of his upcoming fight with American social media star, Jake Paul.
The younger brother of heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, has made it very clear that his clash with Paul will not go the distance.
In fact, it will not even make it past the fourth round, as Fury said on Piers Morgan Uncensored: “I know I’m going to knock him out.
“This fight will not go any more than four rounds.
“The stuff that I’m doing in the gym and the people I’m handling in the gym, there’s no way this goes the distance.”
This is the third time this fight has been scheduled and each time the trash-talk has ramped up a level.
Most recently, the pair met in the ring ahead of the thrilling world title clash between Artur Beterbiev and Anthony Yarde, and they traded insults.
Fury said: “Come 26th of February, this s***’s been going on too long, he’ll never box again.

“I’m not 50, I ain’t 40, I ain’t an MMA guy, I’ve been doing this my whole life and I swear to God you’re finished come 26th of February.”
Paul responded: “He’s fought taxi drivers, he’s got no chin, it’s all a joke. I’m ending you February 26th and you already know it.
“You’re going to crack under pressure, you’re not built for this moment. You’re an impostor, it’s all a bravado, it’s all fake confidence.”
When asked by Morgan whether he enjoyed the trash-talking aspect of being a boxer, Fury replied: “It’s part and parcel, it’s something you have to do, it’s called the entertainment business and that’s the game that we’re in.
“Me and Jake Paul are great dance partners and I’ve enjoyed the build-up so far, it’s going to get a lot more heated and I can’t wait.
“But, the real work starts when we get inside those ropes and social media can’t save him, his mouth can’t save him.
“It comes down to fighting and I’m a lot better at that than him.”
