Not content with beating one member of the Paul family, Tommy Fury intends to knock out YouTuber Jake on December 18 before taking brother Logan 'out of the game'.
That's according to Fury's father, John, who is confident the youngest member of his boxing progeny will deliver a stoppage win worth savouring at the Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida on December 18.
Both fighters are entering the final weeks of their training camp before their heavily anticipated showdown, where Love Island alumnus Fury will attempt to inflict the first defeat of 4-0 Paul's professional career.
Not only is Fury Sr. assured of his son's ability to deliver in that regard, but he's backed him to follow up by going after the elder Paul brother—provided he's still motivated to meet in the ring.
John Fury—father and trainer to Tommy—told podcaster Rob Moore neither Paul sibling will be able to stand with his son as long as he's at his best.
"If he’s on his game, Tommy, and he’s firing on all four cylinders. Easy night’s work, easy money and the winner goes on to bigger and better things," he said.
"We’ll get the brother out the game as well, then we’ll start looking at conventional titles for him. A brother is going to want to redeem another brother isn’t he?
"When he knocks Jake Paul out, the brother’s going to want to take his part ain’t he? But I don’t think so because the hiding Tommy’s going to give Jake Paul, the other brother won’t be interested either."

Former Disney actor Paul has overcome ex-UFC fighters Tyron Woodley (via decision) and Ben Askren (via knockout) in his last two bouts.
However, 7-0 Fury—younger brother of 'The Gypsy King' Tyson—will be the first professional boxing challenge of his in-ring career to date.
The other Paul brother, Logan, fought all eight rounds in a non-scored exhibition with Floyd Mayweather, meanwhile, having previously lost to fellow YouTuber KSI in 2019.
'TNT' last defeated Anthony Taylor via a four-round decision in August, which was his first experience fighting in the United States.
There are critics who have scrutinised 'celebrity boxing' matches following the surge in interest in recent years, but father Fury also told Moore the money on offer was too good for his son to turn down.
"Listen, Tommy's getting paid more money for this than some world champions," he added.
"He's getting paid in the millions, so if we get millions for getting wet we're gonna do it, because it's good business."
It may not be considered as such should the 22-year-old Mancunian go on to lose, which would jeopardise a boxing career still in its early stages.
Fury Sr. has also been candid in his feelings about some of the "bizarre" clauses in the fight agreement, one of which requires Tommy to legally change his name to "Tommy Fumbles" for one year if he loses.
The rewards for becoming the first man to beat Jake inside the ring could prove to be just as significant, not least because it might lead to another money-spinning bout with brother Logan.
Beating the former is something others in the fight industry have tried and failed to do, however, highlighting the need for Fury to be cautious ahead of the biggest date of his career thus far.
