Tyson said: ‘Just finished my first morning session as a trainer, really happy with myself the way things went.
‘All the boys trained hard,’ Fury added, before asking Tommy, ‘how was it?’
Tommy replied: ‘The run this morning was good, good leg work – I’m feeling good, feeling fit. Trainer T is doing the best job!’
The Gypsy King then asked his younger brother what he’s going to do to Paul when they meet in the ring next month, with Tommy predicting he’ll only need two rounds to knock the American out.

‘He’s getting knocked spark out, two rounds,’ Tommy said.
Tyson added: ‘Jake Paul, we’re coming for you!’
Tommy was absent for the first press conference for his fight with Paul at the weekend due to a family emergency, but is now expected to fly out to Las Vegas with Tyson in the coming days to continue their training, where they will be joined by trainer SugarHill, who will be in Tommy’s corner for the fight.
Tommy Fury has won all seven of his fights so far; four by knockout and three by decision and promised to teach ‘the Problem Child’ a lesson after their fight was confirmed in October.
‘Jake Paul is about to learn a serious life lesson,’ he said. ‘This is my world and he doesn’t belong here. I’m not one of these MMA men or basketball players.

‘I have been boxing my whole life. I will show the world the difference between a YouTuber and a real fighting man.’
Paul meanwhile is confident that he will have his arm raised at the end of the fight and has upped the ante, according to Tommy’s father, John Fury.
‘The contract has been bizarre. If I was going to go through what they’ve put in the contract, we’d be here all day,’ he told BT Sport.
‘I’ve said yes to everything; yes, yes, yes, yes, do what you’ve got to do because I know Jake Paul can’t beat Tommy no matter what he does.’

Paul has revealed that one such ‘bizarre’ demand relates to a post-fight obligation for both fighters in the event that they lost on December 18.
If Fury defeats Paul, the brash American must forfeit $500,000 to the Briton. However, if the 22-year-old loses to the YouTuber, he must change his name to ‘Tommy Fumbles’.
‘Since Tyson Fury says if Tommy loses to me he will make him change his last name.. So then @tommytntfury if you beat me I will pay you an extra $500k,’ Paul tweeted.
‘However, if I beat you then you have to change your name to Tommy Fumbles for 1 year.’
