Jake Paul could be ‘seriously injured’ if he collides with Tommy Fury later this month, Amir Khan fears.
Paul, the YouTube sensation turned boxer, is approaching the toughest test of his professional career yet against Fury on Dec. 18.
The 24-year-old has racked up four straight wins since venturing into boxing, although those wins have come against two former UFC fighters, a retired NBA player and a fellow YouTuber.

Paul closes on December 18 with Fury, the younger brother of heavyweight king Tyson
Fury is also a novice to the professional game and has racked up seven easy wins to date, but as the brother of world heavyweight champion Tyson, he is expected to be victorious.
Khan certainly expects the Brit to come out on top and tip him to go on and become world champion while predicting an embarrassing night for Paul.
“I think Tommy is a great guy and a great fighter,” Khan said Professional boxing fans.
“I know Tyson, his brother, very well. But I just feel Jake Paul will get hurt in this fight.
Khan believes Fury will become world champion after getting past the YouTuber
“I like Jake as a fighter, he messaged me a few times, but in the end Tommy is a future champion and he wants to fight someone like that, (Paul) can get badly hurt.”
Paul’s first professional outing came back in January 2020, when he wiped out fellow YouTube star AnEsonGib in one round.
The American then brutally knocked out ex-NBA player Nate Robinson 10 months later, before taking his two most impressive wins to date over former UFC men Ben Askren and Tyron Woodley.
Both Paul and Fury lack significant professional experience heading into the race
And prior to his showdown with Fury, Paul’s trainer BJ Flores has maintained that his man is not impressed in the least.
“Jake is a tireless worker. He has no fear whatsoever of Tommy or his last name and it will be very clear when the first bell rings,” Flores said BoxingScene.
“This is a great fight between two young undefeated lads who are willing to risk everything.
“There is a lot at stake here. The name Fury is legendary and this is a very serious challenge for us. Great honor to both fighters.’
