The long-awaited boxing match between Jake Paul and Tommy Fury, brother of heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, is scheduled for the end of the month. But if a boxer doesn’t win, he could retire altogether.
Fury has always been critical of Paul’s boxing career, pointing out that he never faced or beat an actual boxer. It has been said numerous times that these two would face each other in the ring together, with two previous fights failing. But after the paperwork was finally drawn up again, it will take place in Saudi Arabia on February 26.
Fury spoke to talkSPORT Drive and he’s back to saying what he’s been for quite some time: He’s going to knock Paul out in the ring. However, if he ends up losing, the gloves may not come back on.

«Yes, 100% yes. Definitely,» he said when asked if he would retire if he loses to Paul, who hasn’t lost in six fights.
«If I can’t beat Jake Paul, I don’t belong in the ring.»
Fury is also undefeated in his boxing career, winning four fights by knockout and four by decision.

His confidence is beaming though, as he doesn’t think Paul can land a clean hit.
«If he caught me I’d probably laugh to be honest.
«Because I’ve been used to getting hit by heavyweights and Olympic gold medalists and world champions and whatever, so Jake Paul, a little Disney kid, what’s he going to do?»
«TNT,» which is Fury’s boxing nickname, didn’t stop there.
«There’s nothing Jake Paul does in that ring that worries me,» he said.

«He throws a wild right overhand like any pub lad would, he’s got his ass blown off, after three rounds there’s not much he can do.
«He doesn’t have a high work rate, it is what he is. And yes, I think he’s delusional enough to believe he’s going to beat me.»
The entire conversation on both sides will be put to the test later this month, and perhaps Fury’s words will ring true by the end.
