Tyson Fury is set to help brother Tommy train for his grudge boxing match against Jake Paul. The fight between the pair has been locked in for December 18 in Tampa, Florida.
Following confirmation the fight will go ahead, Tyson revealed he will help his younger sibling prepare for the epic grudge match following months of verbal jousting between the two fighters.
The 33-year-old posted on Twitter: “Massive congratulations to Tommy Fury on his big big fight news. Living the dream daily. See you soon bro, Vegas baby Vegas.”
Their father John confirmed the pair would be together in the States as Tommy prepares to face arch-rival Paul.
“Tyson’s going to be in his corner that night. I think Tyson’s flying out there in a few weeks to help him out,” John told BT Sport Boxing.
“Whatever desire he’s missing, Tyson will put there, I’m sure of that. Tyson will sort his head out so I’m looking for a Tommy win in explosive fashion – the end of Jake Paul.”

Last month John issued a stark warning to Tommy, promising he would make his son “retire” if he loses to Paul.
He told the True Geordie Podcast: “I see Tommy splattering Jake Paul all over the ring, within four to five rounds. If he doesn’t, it’s over for him! He knows that.
“No pressure Tommy lad, but let me tell you, you will be called Tommy Fumbles as well… if it’s a close fight, Tommy’s retired.
“If Tommy struggles to beat him, he’s retired from boxing [because Jake Paul] is a YouTuber! He’s gotta be knocking Jake Paul out…”
While Tommy prepares to fight Paul next month, the 22-year-old and girlfriend Molly-Mae Hague are coming to terms with their house being burgled.
The thieves stole £800,000 worth of goods, which included jewellery.
A representative for the influencer told Mail Online: “Molly is doing well considering the circumstances.
