TOMMY FURY will be trained by his brother and world heavyweight champion Tyson for his clash with Jake Paul next month.
The 22-year-old will square off against the YouTube sensation in Tampa Bay, Florida on December 18.
And it has now been revealed that WBC champion Tyson will help his sibling to prepare for the fight alongside his highly-respected coach SugarHill Steward.
SugarHill, who is the nephew of legendary trainer Emmanuel Steward, has led Tyson to two victories over Deontay Wilder.
Tyson opted to bring SugarHill in before the Wilder rematch in 2020 and went on to dismantle him inside seven rounds.
SugarHill's 'Kronk' style of boxing is well-renowned as an offensive approach and that was on display once again in the trilogy fight between the two heavyweights.
This time Tyson stopped Wilder in the 11th round, climbing off the canvas to knock the American out cold.
SugarHill, who is also a former Detroit police officer, has trained other world champions including Anthony Dirrell and Adonis Stevenson.
He will be in Dirrell's corner in Las Vegas this weekend as the American takes on Marcos Hernandez on the undercard of Canelo Alvarez's undisputed clash against Caleb Plant.
His boxing philosophy was there for everyone to see when Tyson revealed the advice SugarHill gave him before the Wilder knockout eventually came.
The heavyweight champ said: “I need to thank my trainer. At the end there he told me, ‘get your jab working, only the big dogs pull it out late on’.
“It was edge of the seat stuff and could’ve gone either way. SugarHill pushed me to knock him out late.”
Meanwhile, Tommy and Jake are fighting at a much lower level than Tyson but are still fairly evenly matched heading into their December fight.
Both are undefeated as professionals, Tommy after seven fights and Jake after four.
And boxing promoter Eddie Hearn believes it will be the 'most embarrassing thing ever' if Tommy is beaten by the internet star.
He said: “I’ve only watched Tommy Fury once in a UK show beating a guy that I could’ve beaten.
“And then I watched that last fight he was in, the four-rounder against the guy who sparred with Jake.
“Logic and hope would tell you a professional boxer that boxed for a living and was also Tyson Fury’s brother should never, ever lose to Jake Paul.

“But Jake Paul is not horrific, there’s a lot of pro fighters worse than Jake Paul.
“I’ve seen them, I’ve had a lot of them on my shows in with young kids coming through.
“But it’s just the most embarrassing thing if he loses that fight.”
