Tommy Fury reveals dad John is scarier than Tyson and warned Anthony Joshua it will be ‘game over’ if he fights brother | The Sun

TOMMY FURY says his dad John is scarier than brother and WBC heavyweight boxing king Tyson.

But the former Love Island star believes Tyson will be in a mean mood if he eventually fights Anthony Joshua predicting 'game over' for the Watford fighter.

Tommy is trying to make his own waves in the sport after becoming a household name for his time topping up his tan on reality TV.

The 23-year-old has won all eight of his pro fights so far, four by way of KO and faces YouTube star-turned-boxer Jake Paul on Sunday.

If he can adopt the same 'take no prisoners' attitude older brother and dad have, Tommy hopes one day to become a world champ himself.

When asked who was scarier between John and Tyson, Tommy told The Sportsman: “I wouldn’t like to be stuck in a lift with my dad. Definitely not.

“There is just something about him, when he loses his temper that is it, you just say ‘Oh no problem, I’ll speak to you another day.’ Get out the firing line."

Tyson and AJ looked destined for a fight on December 3 in Cardiff – but talks between the pair have broken down.

Fury is blaming Joshua's ego and business interests for blowing their December 3 Cardiff clash – and insisted the pair will NEVER fight.

If they ever did step into the ring, unsurprisingly Tommy is tipping his big bro to do what he does best and win the Battle Of Britain.

Tommy added: "I think it will happen, definitely because it is too big of a fight not to happen.

"Tyson is ready all year round. He’s never shied away from anybody his entire life so whenever Joshua steps up and wants to take the fight, then Tyson will be here waiting.

"I truly believe Joshua knows this in his own head. When he fights Tyson it will be game over for him.”

The Morecambe giant admitted he needs help because he "wants to be out of boxing" but "can't let go".

While dad John doesn't believe that the AJ vs Tyson fight will now be made.

The 58-year-old told The Daily Mail: "I can understand why [they are stalling on the contracts]. He is their Golden Boy.

"A defeat to Tyson Fury, financially… it would financial suicide for them wouldn’t it.

"That’s why they don’t want it."

WBC champ Fury said: "[Joshua] was asked the question: 'Do you want to fight Tyson Fury?'

"[It was] very plain and simple, and he never answered the question. It was a simple yes or no answer wasn't it?

"Then they said, 'Do you think you're the best heavyweight in the world?' and he went [holds hands up].

"Didn't answer the question. Ask me, do you want to fight Anthony Joshua?"

Ross duly obliged, to which Fury responded 'Yes', before being asked who is the world's best heavyweight.
