Tommy Fury ‘should go to a desert island and just stay there for life’ if he loses to Jake Paul, claims Eddie Hearn10/31/2021
PROMOTER Eddie Hearn has heaped pressure on Tommy Fury, telling him he should go to a 'desert island' if he is beaten by Jake Paul.
The pair are finally set to face off on December 18 after months of back-and-forth on social media.
And after claims from Tyson and John Fury that Tommy will come out on top, Hearn has also waded in on the situation.
He has declared unbeaten professional Tommy, 22, should 'never' be beaten by Paul, 24.
Speaking on the hotly anticipated clash, via talkSPORT's Michael Benson, Hearn said: "Logic would tell you a pro that boxed for a living and was also Tyson Fury's brother should never lose to Jake Paul…
"If Tommy loses, he should go to a desert island and just stay there for life. It would be the most embarrassing thing."
Hearn also responded to claims that Paul didn't deserve a shot at fighting Fury.
The promoter said: "I don't agree with all these comments, 'It's not fair they're earning all this money and you've got this other guy whose grinding and not getting the opportunities.' Well he ain't good enough and he's not built a fanbase like Jake Paul, so tough s***."

Meanwhile Tommy's half-brother Tyson recently claimed he would change Tommy's last name if he fails to beat Paul.
Tyson said: "If Tommy can't splatter Jake Paul, I'll retire him from boxing myself.
"He's got ambitions of being a world champion, never mind beating some YouTube guy.
"His name's Fury. If he can't beat Jake Paul, I'll have to change his name."
Paul meanwhile challenged Fury to change his surname for a YEAR if he loses their grudge match.
And Tommy's dads John revealed Tyson will fly to Las Vegas to train his brother in the same city that The Gypsy King knocked out Deontay Wilder earlier this month.
Outspoken Paul on the other hand has claimed he will enlist the services of viral social media star Hasbulla to help coach him.
