EDDIE HEARN has predicted that Tommy Fury will suffer ‘the most embarrassing thing that could ever happen to him’ and LOSE to Jake Paul.
The unbeaten former Love Island star will face the outspoken YouTuber, who has a 5-0 record himself, on August 6 in New York.
Fury and Paul will finally collide at Madison Square Garden in just under six weeks.
The bitter rivals were originally due to fight last December, but Fury was forced to pull out due to illness and a broken rib.
Now fans are will get to see them collide – and Tyson Fury is that confident his brother will win that he has agreed to bet $1m (£813,715) on the outcome of the bout.
Not everyone else in the boxing community is as sure as the WBC heavyweight champion.

And Matchroom promoter Hearn, who works with Fury’s rival Anthony Joshua, believes that a big shock will occur in the Big Apple.
During an appearance on the MMA Hour, he was asked if he believes Paul would beat Fury, to which he replied: “I think he probably does. They’re about the same kind of level.
“The problem with Jake is you listen to him and you can’t help being drawn in by the confidence.
“So I’m now drawn in by the confidence and putting him as a guy who deserves to be a boxer.

“On paper Tommy Fury should beat him easily, but then you watch Tommy Fury and you think, ‘Well actually, you’re not very good either.’
“But what is good about the fight is that it’s a 50/50 fight. As long as it’s a competitive match-up, it doesn’t matter, it’s okay to watch.
“And that’s a 50/50, I don’t actually know who’s gonna win.”
And Hearn believes it could be career suicide for either man.
He added: “If Tommy Fury loses, it is genuinely the most embarrassing thing that could ever happen to him.
“If Jake loses, his career’s over. So therefore it’s quite exciting.”
