TYSON FURY said brother Tommy can “stay in Saudi Arabia” if he fails to “chin” Jake Paul in their fight.
The celebrity boxing rivals are set to announce the latest rescheduling of their grudge match, slated for February 25 in the Middle East.

And as confirmation nears, Fury is backing his younger sibling all the way but warned there will be consequences if he loses.
He told talkSPORT: “I don’t think it’s been officially announced, but I hear an announcement is imminent.
“They are finally getting it on and are going to throw down. The two YouTube people get to battle it out for the king of the YouTubers.
“It’s going to be fun, and I expect Tommy to chin him. If he doesn’t he can stay in Saudi Arabia.”
The two are now trying to settle their score in the ring for the THIRD time.
Tommy, 23, was forced to pull out in December 2021 due to a rib injury and then last August amid a US visa issue.
The travel woe still persists today, which left the UK and Saudi as frontrunners to host the bitter bout.
Paul, 26, even offered to travel to Manchester on February 18 and fight Fury in enemy territory.

But a more lucrative deal in Saudi Arabia a week later was proposed and looks to have won the race.
Tommy last boxed in Dubai in November in a last-minute exhibition against Rolly Lambert, 33.
Paul was a special guest commentator that night and slammed the six-round bout from ringside.
It came a month after the American beat UFC legend Anderson Silva, 46, over eight rounds.
It kept the anticipated clash between the unbeaten two alive and Tommy’s dad John doubled down on the punishment if his son is beaten.
It’s going to be fun, and I expect Tommy to chin him. If he doesn’t he can stay in Saudi Arabia.

He told Freebets: “There is no more boxing for him if he loses. But, I am 100 percent confident he will knock him out.
“It’s a big ask for Jake Paul, because Tommy is much better than what he’s faced before, so fair do’s to him.
“It’s a foregone conclusion that Tommy will win. We are not leaving a stone unturned and are training as if this were against a world-class fighter.
“He’s working really well. Tommy will be very famous on the 26th of February.”
