TOMMY FURY says his dad John is scarier than brother and WBC heavyweight boxing king Tyson.
But the Love Island star believes Tyson will be in a mean mood when he eventually fights Anthony Joshua predicting ‘game over’ for the Watford fighter.

Tommy is trying to make his own waves in the sport after becoming a household name for his time topping up his tan on reality TV.
The 21-year-old has won all four of his pro fights so far, three by way of KO.
If he can adopt the same ‘take no prisoners’ attitude older brother and dad have, Tommy hopes one day to become a world champ himself.
When asked who was scarier between John and Tyson, Tommy told The Sportsman: “I wouldn’t like to be stuck in a lift with my dad. Definitely not.
“There is just something about him, when he loses his temper that is it, you just say ‘Oh no problem, I’ll speak to you another day.’ Get out the firing line.”
Earlier this year, Tyson announced he had agreed with WBA, WBO and IBF champ Joshua for the pair to fight twice in 2021.
Eddie Hearn recently confirmed Tyson and Joshua had ‘verbally agreed’ to fight in May or June next year in their all-British world heavyweight unification showdown.
And unsurprisingly Tommy is tipping his big bro to do what he does best and win the Battle Of Britain.

Even before Hearn’s announcement, Tommy added: “I think it will happen, definitely because it is too big of a fight not to happen.
“I think it should definitely be on for summer time or back end of the year next year to be fair.
“Tyson is ready all year round. He’s never shied away from anybody his entire life so whenever Joshua steps up and wants to take the fight, then Tyson will be here waiting.
“I truly believe Joshua knows this in his own head. When he fights Tyson it will be game over for him.”
Tyson was left seething last week after Joshua refused to openly admit he would fight him next following his dominant win over Pulev.
The Gypsy King hit out at his fellow Brit during his appearance on The Jonathan Ross Show last week for dodging the question.

WBC champ Fury said: “[Joshua] was asked the question: ‘Do you want to fight Tyson Fury?’
“[It was] very plain and simple, and he never answered the question. It was a simple yes or no answer wasn’t it?
“Then they said, ‘Do you think you’re the best heavyweight in the world?’ and he went [holds hands up].
“Didn’t answer the question. Ask me, do you want to fight Anthony Joshua?”
Ross duly obliged, to which Fury responded ‘Yes’, before being asked who is the world’s best heavyweight.
Unsurprisingly, he replied: “Me, by a mile. There we go, that’s how you answer the question.”
Even more recently, Fury shared some videos of himself sparring with a boxer sporting a prosthetic leg.
