Tommy Fury vows to stop Jake Paul 'early' and tells rival to have 'an ambulance on speed dial'
The rivalry between Fury and Paul has been bubbling away for a couple of years. They have agreed to fight twice before but the bouts had to be postponed due to issues on the British boxer's side.
He first had an injury, then he was refused entry into the United States due to the Fury's alleged links to Daniel Kinahan.
A compromise was finally arrange with a bout in the Middle East and Fury is confident that he will get past Paul with relative ease.
"My message to Jake Paul is good luck and I hope you've trained, and I hope you got an ambulance on speed dial because you're gonna need it," Fury told TMZ Sports.
Fury continued: "In three weeks, I get my chance. I don't wanna take it both hands, I wanna school this man. "I'm gonna take him to the trenches and he will be drowned. There's no way he can last eight rounds in the ring with me. "I see me putting him away early, the way I'm punching in the gym, what I'm doing to people in the gym. There's no way. When the shots land, he will be going down. He will not get up."

Tommy's half-brother - Tyson Fury - is expecting the eight-round contest to go longer.
"I don't think it's going to be a one-round, two-second knockout, one punch type of job," Tyson told IFL TV. "I think he'll wear him down, it's an eight-rounder, so I think Tommy can wear him out and stop him later on in the last few rounds. "As soon as Tommy hits him with some hard punches, I want to see what Jake Paul's made of. When Tommy hits me with hard punches and big gloves on it hurts me. "I know Jake ain't as tough as me or as big as me so he's definitely going to be feeling pain, a lot of it."
