World heavyweight champion Tyson Fury has backed his brother Tommy to ‘knock Jake Paul out’ when they fight on Sunday evening.
The bitter rivals are finally set to go head-to-head in Diriyah, Saudi Arabia on Sunday, with ringwalks set to begin at around 9.30PM UK time, after seeing previously scheduled bouts fall through on two occasions.
They agreed a winner-takes-all-contract on Saturday, as former Love Island star Fury said there was ‘no way’ he would lose to Paul.
His older brother seems to agree with his verdict, as he told BT Sport: ‘I can smell the fear, he’s s***ing himself. He knows it’s real now and he’s getting knocked out tomorrow and I can’t wait to see it!’
Paul will be looking to maintain his unbeaten record inside the ring and comes into the bout on the back of a decision win over MMA legend Anderson Silva. Fury will be the first professional boxer he has faced, however.

His opponent also has a flawless record (8-0) and most recently defeated Daniel Bocianski on points in April last year.
Tyson Fury added that Paul is ‘deluded’, and predicted that Tommy would win the fight ‘with a big right hand.’
When asked if he had any advice to share, the 34-year-old said: ‘Get in there and knock him out!’
Fury and Paul weighed in ahead of their fight on Saturday, with Fury coming in just under the limit 184.5lbs, while Paul was slightly lighter at 183.6lbs.
Despite both fighters making weight, tensions boiled over and the pair had to be separated. While on stage Fury could be heard shouting ‘it’s over’ before shoving Paul.
The Problem Child fired back shouting, ‘You didn’t want to sign the contract’ which prompted Fury to hit back, saying: ‘Your time is up, I am going to knock you the f*** out’.

After the exchange, Fury told reporters: ‘Tomorrow night, his time is up. Jake Paul will no longer be boxing. I’m gonna put this guy away in four rounds.’
Paul took a more measured approach and called out Fury for showing off to the cameras.
‘He’s acting on stage, getting all hyped up, trying to act like his brother,’ Paul said. ‘This professional boxer is going down; it’s easy, it’s simple.
‘I’m ready, calm, cool, collected. This is what I do. He’s shaking up on stage; you can see the nerves running through his system. I’m chill.’
