Footage has emerged of Tommy Fury sparring ahead of his upcoming bout with YouTuber Jake Paul.

Fury and Paul first engaged in a war of words as the former Love Island finalist was booked in to fight on the undercard of Paul’s bout with the UFC’s Tyron Woodley.

The Briton was successful in defeating Paul’s sparring partner Anthony Taylor via a points decision and subsequently remained on track to secure a bout with the social media star.

That has since been confirmed and pencilled in for December 18th in Florida, with both fighters now in camp and ramping up their preparations for the fight.

We’ve seen several videos shared by Tyson Fury, who is training his half-brother, putting Tommy through his paces in the boxing gym.

We have now also been given an idea of how that hard work looks when put into practice, with a video emerging of Fury sparring a considerably taller opponent.

Fury can be seen feinting and waiting patiently for his opportunities to throw shots, all while showcasing his shrewd defensive skills to evade, block and counter.

He is, by some distance, the most talented boxer that Paul has faced in his boxing career to date. The only question mark is whether the occasion will get to him.

Fury underwhelmed last time out, despite having secured victory, with many attributing that to the fact he was performing in front of a large crowd.

The eyes of the world will be fixed on that boxing ring come December 18th, so it remains to be seen how he’s going to react to that…
