British heavyweight, Derek Chisora, has noticed something close to Jake Paul and Tommy Fury, which he could make all the difference when the pair fight next month.
‘Del Boy’ has become more attached to Saudi Arabia in recent weeksacted as a promoter of the battles that Prince Khalid waged.
The 39-year-old even calls himself the ‘face of boxing in Saudi Arabia’ after revealing a new partnership with ‘Skill Challenge’ – an entertainment and sports company in Middle Eastern Kingdom.
The result is, Chisora was in the ring with Jake Paul and Tommy Fury for their confrontation last weekendbefore their clash next month.
In an interview with iFL TVChisora says that Jake is not scared, while Tommy looks worried.
“Jake Paul, I was with him today, he doesn’t have that fear factor. He doesn’t have that element of anxiety, he doesn’t care. When I’m with Tommy [Fury], Tommy is in great shape, but I can tell, just in his eyes, that he has that element of anxiety. Remember, he comes from a family of boxing, traveling and competing for the title.
Now he is fighting a suburban American boy who has become famous on YouTube for playing video games and he is fighting a kid who is a gypsy, a tourist kid in Arabia. Arabic. You can imagine how stressed he is because he’s fighting someone who doesn’t really care. So it must worry him.
Chisora tells Tommy’s half-brother and former nemesis, Tyson Fury, that he predicts Paul KO.
“I told him then [Tyson] that his brother will be knocked down.
‘The Problem Child’ and Fury will go head-to-head on Sunday, February 26 in Saudi Arabia with an underground showdown, featuring Ilunga Makabu against Badou Jack for the WBC cruiser class world title, to be announced dad.
