Tommy Fury has lifted the lid on how it feels to be punched by big brother Tyson.
Tyson, 31, goes toe-to-toe with Deontay Wilder again in their highly-anticipated WBC heavyweight title rematch in Las Vegas on Saturday night.
Britain's Fury failed in his bid to snatch the belt from the champion when he was dropped twice in their 2018 bout, earning Wilder a draw despite being out-boxed for much of the fight.
Wilder's renowned power was evidenced that night when he knocked Fury down in rounds nine and 12, with the latter a particularly devastating shot which the Mancunian somehow recovered from.
Many believe that power will ensure Wilder keeps the belt again when the pair fight at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas this weekend.
But Fury's brother has now opened up on the power the British boxer boasts.
He told The Sun: “Put it this way, Tyson will take a look at you, and a little tap from Tyson is – at 6ft 9in and 19stone – going to hurt.
“I’ve taken a punch of what he’d give from 45 millimetres away and that’s hard enough, I can tell you. There’s never, ever going to be another man like Tyson on the planet.
“He’s the most mentally strong person in the entire world.”
Fury has risked sacrificing his renowned speed and agility by weighing in a stone heavier than his first WBC heavyweight title fight against Deontay Wilder for Saturday's rematch.
The Briton looked fleshy as he hit 19st 7lbs on the scales, a huge three stone heavier than Wilder, who weighed in at 16st 7lbs.
Fury had always been expected to come in bulkier than he was for their draw in December 2018, with the theory being that it would help him deal with Wilder's concussive power better.
Fury weighed 18st 4lbs 8oz for their first showdown, with Wilder 15st 2lbs 8oz.
