Jake Paul sent his best wishes to Tommy’s mother.

He said: ‘I’m upset that Tommy’s not here. I know he’s taking care of his mother and I respect that as a man. I hope she’s okay.’

Later, though, Paul began trash talking his opponent. 

Tommy Fury will be coached by SugarHill Steward, who helped Tyson to secure knockout wins against Deontay Wilder. SugarHill was present at the press conference.
