TOMMY FURY will have a walk in the park against Jake Paul, but only if he gets his stamina up.
A grudge match between the two social media stars is seemingly on course to take place early next year, with negotiations currently ongoing.
Bur boxing fans’ opinions about who will win the fight are divided – despite Fury being immersed in boxing since childhood.
That of former two-division champion Ricky Hatton, however, isn’t and he firmly believes Fury will teach The Problem Child a lesson once he gets his cardio up.
He told Fair Betting Sites: “I think Tommy Fury beats Jake all day long, as long as he gets a few more rounds in the bank.
“Jake Paul has done more rounds than Tommy Fury. Once Tommy has banged out a few six-rounders and got a few eight-rounders under his belt, then I think it’s a no-contest.
“As he hasn’t done too many rounds himself, he probably hasn’t got that natural stamina.
“It’s not just for Tommy, it’s for [Floyd] Mayweather, for me – you need those rounds under your belt and so far Tommy’s not done that yet and that’s the only thing that gives Jake Paul half a chance.
“If Tommy got a few rounds under his belt and built that stamina up then I think it’s an easy fight for Tommy.”
YouTuber turned boxer Paul, 25, recently accused Fury – the brother of WBC heavyweight champ Tyson – of ducking him.

He said: “Tommy Fury…the contract is with your team.
“7 figures. 6x what you made in your last fight. You signing right?”
He later added: “Tommy Fury ducking. Tyson Fury now trying to get me to fight his dad instead?
“Nate Diaz ducking. I heard he’s boxing a novice YouTuber?
“Paddy [Pimblett] ducking a spar. Knows I can’t go to UFC HQ. Offered him Jan 5 but happy to fly him out any day he wants that works for us both?”
Fury, 23, hasn’t set foot in the ring since his decision victory over Daniel Bocianski on the undercard of brother Tyson’s Wembley clash with Dillian Whyte in April.
Paul, meanwhile, was last in action in October – defeating former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva via unanimous decision.
