Jake Paul gives Tommy Fury a gift for Bambi ahead of grudge boxing match
| Last updated
Jake Paul is making peace with Tommy Fury before their highly anticipated grudge fight this weekend... sort of.
In the build-up to the twice-rescheduled fight, Jake Paul took every opportunity to taunt his rival at press conferences, in person, and on social media.
Back in January, one of those social media posts read: "After multiple failed attempts to get Tommy Fury in the ring, the moment of truth has finally arrived.
"Fumbles has no excuses now. Baby is born. Money is massive. Immigration is not an issue."
The main issue with this callout was that, yes, Tommy's baby daughter Bambi had been born, but neither Tommy nor his girlfriend Molly Mae had officially announced that.
At first, Jake refused to apologise for leaking Tommy and Molly's baby announcement.
During a Q&A session with fans on Instagram, a fan asked him if he should apologise for leaking the news of the celeb couple's first born.
He simply replied: "No she should pay me for giving that baby more clout."
Now that Tommy has officially joined Jake in Saudi Arabia and is clearly all in on this match, it appears Jake has changed his tune and wants to make amends.
Coming face-to-face with Tommy before Sunday's fight, Jake addressed the elephant in the room.
He said: "You know what? I apologise, actually, for leaking your baby's announcement. I honestly didn't mean to say that the baby was..."
Tommy cut off the Problem Child, assuring him that he and Molly were unbothered.
"You know how many people guessed that our baby was here?" he began.
"And when he put it out, I was like, 'okay, so he just joined the rest of them.' He doesn't know anything about my private life. Me and Molly both looked at that and were like, 'okay, sweet'."
Trying to get his apology across once again, Paul told Fury: "I just want to say that I didn't mean to leak your baby's announcement. I actually got a gift for Bambi just as a sorry. It's like a really nice designer baby brand."
Tommy graciously took the gift and put it to the side, telling his rival: "Well, thank you very much, I'm sure she'll appreciate that. Thank you."
Before Tommy could continue his apology, his dad and coach John climbed onto the stage to shake Jake's hand.
"You've got up one million percent in my estimation," he told Jake. "May the best man win."
Jake and Tommy will go head-to-head on Sunday night at 9.30pm UK time in Diriyah, Saudi Arabia.
