Tyson Fury believes his brother Tommy Fury's upcoming match against Jake Paul shouldn't be taken lightly.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Tyson praised Paul's skills as a boxer and stressed the importance of Tommy's preparation for their Feb. 26 bout.

"He can't just go to the ice cream parlor and not train," Tyson said. "He's got to really focus and have the right sparring and everything. He's got to take it really seriously. He's got to do the job when he's in there."

This is the third time that Tommy and Paul have been scheduled to square off. Tommy withdrew from their December 2021 match due to medical issues and then backed out of their August 2022 bout after he was denied entry into the United States.

If the pair make it to the ring next month, Tyson predicts a knockout win for his brother.

"I think Tommy knocks him out inside six rounds," he said. "Tommy hits and hurts me and I'm 20 stone and 6-foot-9 and the heavyweight champion of the world."
