TOMMY FURY'S preparations for his fight against Jake Paul have suffered a blow with brother and trainer Tyson struck down by 'man flu'.
The Gypsy King is coaching Tommy for his big-money bout against Paul in Florida on December 18.
But he seemed to have taken some time off fight-prep to cosy down and enjoy a movie on Tuesday.
The 33-year-old treated himself to some well-deserved down time following a hectic last few weeks.
After spectacularly knocking out Deontay Wilder last month Fury was straight back into action for Tommy's training camp.
Although the 6ft9in heavyweight champ seemingly wasn't down for long as he was back out-and-about on Wednesday.
He posted a video from his car of an advert for Paul vs Fury splayed across a bus.
But Tommy himself could now be in line for some time off of his own.

The cold seems to be going around the camp as promoter Frank Warren revealed the 22-year-old has been feeling under the weather.
Warren told iFL TV: “Tommy had a little bit of a cold but hopefully he is going to be ok.
“We are up in Morecambe [on Wednesday] so hopefully we will know more then, but he is up for it and he wants to fight.
“He can’t wait for the fight and I know certainly from Jake’s perspective he can’t wait for the fight.”
It's expected the elder Fury will be ringside for the Paul fight next month.
He's heaped pressure on his younger brother by warning Tommy that he will have to CHANGE his name if he is beaten by YouTuber turned boxer Paul.
Fury fans though will be confident their man can get the job done after leaked footage has shown him displaying some slick defensive skills
Both Tommy and Paul are unbeaten in their short professional careers, but will put their records on the line in the eight-round bout pencilled in for the week before Christmas.
