Tyson Fury will fly to Las Vegas to help train his brother Tommy before his showdown with Jake Paul and will be in his corner for the grudge fight.
The Love Island star finally agreed to meet up with the YouTube rookie on December 18 in Tampa, Florida.
Tyson’s younger brother Fury is looking to carve his own journey to a world title and will have the heavyweight champion’s backing.

Tyson Fury (right), who recently won his trilogy fight with Deontay Wilder, will coach Tommy.
The 22-year-old has fought only seven professionally times and fought on the undercard of Paul’s fight with Tyron Woodley in August.
Fury has erased Paul’s credentials and has long insisted that the YouTube rookie will not pose a threat in the ring, but this is by far the biggest stage he has performed on in his young career.
But the Brit will have his champion older brother in his corner on fight night and after arriving in Sin City last week, Tyson will join Fury in helping him prepare for the fight.

But the 22-year-old will have his heavyweight champion brother Tyson (left) in his corner.
Tyson will be in your corner that night. I think Tyson will be flying there in a few weeks to help him, ” said his father John. BT Sport Boxing.
Whatever wish is missing, Tyson will put it there, I’m sure of that.
“Tyson will fix his head, so I’m looking for a Tommy win explosively – the Jake Paul end.”
His father looks forward to a quiet work night and, along with his brother Tyson, has said that Tommy will no longer be a Fury if he loses to the American.
He admitted that Tommy must either win the fight or face retirement from boxing at the age of 22.
“Tommy knows he’s faced with a stacked deck, but he should still beat Jake Paul in a gallop,” he added. And if he can’t, there’s no way in the boxing world for him.
The boxing rookies will finally resolve their rivalry in an eight-round contest in December.
“ It’s a hit or a miss, for both men, but it will affect Tommy more because Tommy is supposed to be a professional boxer.
Tommy will work hard, do what he has to do. Does Tommy have the ability to beat him? Yes. Do you have the power to knock him out? Yes.
—Everything that happens with Tommy: he’s young, will he be able to face the big occasion of the night? But I’m sure you’ve thought about it many times before and have the king of the ring in your corner.
Am I sure you can beat Jake Paul? Of course i am. The only thing that can beat Tommy that night is Tommy: his way of thinking. I know Jake Paul can’t beat Tommy, no matter what he does. ‘

Fury issued a strong warning to his American rival as the two stars prepare for their big showdown before the end of the year.
“Jake Paul is about to learn a serious life lesson,” he said. ‘This is my world and he doesn’t belong here. I am not one of these MMA men or basketball players.
‘I’ve been boxing my whole life. I will show the world the difference between a YouTuber and a true fighter. ‘
Meanwhile, Paul taunted his rival after revealing that he has been training for ‘seven weeks’ when Fury begins camp for the fight.
Fury has promised to teach Paul a ‘serious lesson’ when they meet at the end of the year.
Paul also raised the stakes with his British rival promising to pay him an additional $ 500,000 (£ 365,363) on his reported payday of $ 1 million (£ 730,727) if he wins, but if he loses, he must change his name to Timmy Fumbles.
On Instagram, Paul wrote: ‘It’s finally official. Timothy had no choice but to sign the contract so he could finally pay his bills, buy a club jersey, and stop living off Molly!
On December 18 in Tampa Bay, I will change this woman’s name to Timmy Fumbles and celebrate with Tom Brady. Frown, Timmy … it’s time to say goodbye to your last name and your family’s boxing legacy. ‘
