Speaking to BoxingScene, Flores said: ‘Jake is a tireless worker. He has zero fear of Tommy or his last name and that will be very obvious when the first bell sounds, Flores stated.
‘This is a great fight between two young undefeated guys who are willing to lay it all on the line.
‘A lot is at stake here. The Fury name is legendary and this is a very serious challenge to us. Massive credit to both fighters.’

Fury will be by far the most accomplished boxer Paul has fought. However, Flores says Fury is prepared for the fight after ‘sparring with several top fighters’.
He said: ‘Over the past two years Paul has sparred with several top fighters and Flores believes that experience will be very important when the bell sounds.
‘We are now less than five weeks away and the closer this thing gets, the happier Jake is. Look, Jake has some big advantages in this matchup.
‘Jake has been in the ring for hundreds of rounds with many top fighters in the country, quietly traveling all over the USA, sparring, gaining hundreds of necessary rounds to prepare him for a fight like this.
‘The one thing consistent amongst all the sparring partners is this – Jake can really punch.’
Flores is also confident that Paul’s ‘size, strength, and power’ will give him the advantage over Fury during their bout in Florida.
At the press conference John Fury took issue with Paul and fired back some stinging criticism
The former cruiserweight contender said: ‘We really hope Tommy does what he says he’s gonna do and that he comes to the middle of the ring and tries to bang with Jake.
‘Size, strength, and power – Jake has big advantages. Tommy is going to find it very difficult when he gets hit with the first clean punch.’
Nevertheless, Fury is confident he will take down Paul – having goaded the YouTuber on social media.
Fury also made his feelings about Paul clear at their press conference earlier this week.
But, it was John Fury who caught the headlines – having told the YouTuber that his son would take Paul’s girlfriend Julia Rose and ‘f**k her like a dog’ once he secures a knockout win.
‘When Tommy beats you he is going to get your girlfriend and f*** her like a dog in front of you,’ John Fury Sr shouted.
Paul, who was dialed in on a video call, shot back: ‘That is so cringe you have never accomplished anything in your life.’
John Fury refused to cower despite his sons, Tommy and Tyson, having their mouths agape at his first jibe.
‘If you don’t like it change the television channel,’ a furious John Fury said. ‘You are the idiot for taking this fight and you are getting it you bum. Enjoy the moment p***k. Dream on d***head.
‘This is the first real fight you are involved in and you are going to feel the wrath of Tommy Fury, I watched you last fight you were actually rubbish.
‘I don’t know who has blown smoke up your ringer but you are rubbish with a capital R.’
