Tyson Fury already has an alternative career path lined up for his brother, Tommy, if he loses to Jake Paul.
‘The Gypsy King’ has made himself very clear in terms of his expectations for the younger Fury to beat Paul when the pair clash on February 26 in Saudi Arabia.
Having already told his little brother to stay in Saudi Arabia if he loses, Tyson has now doubled down on that message, as well as joking that perhaps Tommy could become Cristiano Ronaldo‘s personal trainer.
Ronaldo is out in Saudi Arabia at the moment have recently signed for Al-Nassr football club.
Tyson recently crashed an interview that Paul was doing with JOE and said: “I’ll leave [Tommy] in Saudi Arabia [if he loses].
“He can become Cristiano Ronaldo’s best pal and he can be a PT for Ronaldo in Saudi.”
Fury went on to say: “The two guys are putting it on. They’re both undefeated and whoever loses is pretty much f***ed.
“They’ve had a lot to say. It’s like me – if you speak a lot of s***, you’ve got to back it up. That’s it.”

“I’ve been doing this for years, 30-odd times in a row. Now it’s time for the big boys to do it, let’s get it on. I’m excited.”
This is not the only warning Tommy has received from his family, as his dad, John Fury, has said he will retire ‘TNT’ from boxing altogether if he doesn’t beat Paul.
With that being said, Tommy insists he is not feeling the pressure from his family name, as he told BT Sport: “There’s no pressure on me and there never has been while I’ve been boxing.
“Because I’ve said to absolutely everybody that’s ever interviewed me ‘what about the pressure, what about the last name?’ Hold on a minute, I’m not Tyson and I’ll never be Tyson.
“A Tyson comes along every hundred years and it’ll be another hundred years before he comes along again.
“I’m just trying to be the best version of myself that I can be. My life is already everything I dreamed of right now, even before this fight.”
