Tyson Fury has brother Tommy up at 6am for 'brutal' strength and conditioning training for Jake Paul grudge match
TYSON FURY has brother Tommy up at 6am for 'brutal' strength and conditioning training to prepare for his fight with Jake Paul.
Fury is training and set to corner Tommy for the celebrity grudge match on December 18 in Florida.
And the unbeaten WBC heavyweight champion gave a glimpse into the strict regiment he is ordering his brother to follow.
Fury, 33, said on Instagram: "Just finished a brutal, brutal session in the gym.
"Early start this morning, six o'clock in the morning, just finished now, absolutely smashing it.
"Tommy's in the gym this morning, strength and conditioning, first session of the day."
Fury then uploaded a video smashing a medicine ball on Tommy's stomach, aimed to strengthen his core.
Tommy, 22, is usually coached and cornered by his dad John, but due to his father's prior criminal conviction, he is unable to travel Stateside.

It means Fury and his trainer Sugarhill Steward are leading the training camp.
Tommy was in America with Sugarhill but was forced to fly home to England due to a family emergency.
It means he had to virtually attend the pre-fight press conference in Tampa by Zoom and was joined by brother Tyson on the line.
Tommy said: “I feel like I’ve won the lottery.
"You’re asking me to fight on a massive world stage, you’re going to pay me nicely, and all I’ve got to do is fight Jake Paul. A YouTuber.
"I’m going to splatter him December 18. I’ve won the lottery. I’m begging Jake Paul, please do not pull out.
"Because normally, when we get to this stage in boxing, you’ve got to fight for a world title. But I’m fighting a YouTuber. Sign me up."
I’m going to splatter him December 18. I’ve won the lottery. I’m begging Jake Paul, please do not pull out.
Paul beat ex-UFC champion Tyron Woodley, 39, in his last fight and Fury won against his sparring partner Anthony Taylor, 32, on the undercard.
The YouTuber previously stopped online rival 'AnEsonGib', ex-NBA star Nate Robinson, 37, and retired UFC welterweight Ben Askren, also 37.
Tommy said: “You fought a 40-year-old guy in your last fight. He hit you with one proper punch and you fell through the ropes.
"When I come for you, I’m knocking you spark out. You fought retired UFC people, a basketball player and that’s it.
"When you fight me December 18, you’re getting knocked spark out. This is a step too far for you. Stick to YouTube because that’s all you’re good for.
"I’m going to show you what losing feels like."
