Paul insists Fury will not be a tougher fight than former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva, who fell to “The Problem Child” last fall in Phoenix. In fact, “TNT” may not even be as tough as former Paul victim and ex-UFC titleholder Tyron Woodley.

“No. F*** no. That’s an insult to Anderson,” Paul told The MMA Hour. [He’s] not tougher than Anderson, not tougher than Tyron. I think he’s faster than both of them, I think he throws more punches than both of them, but not tougher. Definitely not tougher.”

“This is a ‘must knock out’ fight for me personally, because I know I can do it,” Paul continued. “I would just be letting myself down. I’m going to win the fight, but if I don’t knock him out, I’ll definitely be pissed.”

The Paul vs. Fury main card gets underway at 2 p.m. ET (11 a.m. PT) and costs $49.99 to stream (watch it here). Odds available at DraftKings Sportsbook.
