Jake Paul Reveals Excuse Tommy Fury Made After Accepting All His Terms For Fight
| Last updated
Jake Paul has called out Tommy Fury for his supposed excuse for pulling out of an arranged fight between the pair.
The duo had been due to fight last year in Tampa Bay, Florida on 18 December but Fury pulled out at the last minute after suffering from rib fractures and a chest infection.
A rematch appears to be on the cards which is meant to be held in Madison Square Garden, New York City, on 6 August.
Fury was confident ahead of their first fight that he'd 'definitely knock out' YouTuber-turned-boxer Paul, though now it's the American who has been talking himself up.
He has posted a video on social media calling out his opponent for making excuses and trying to avoid a fight, claiming Fury's reasons don't 'make any f*****g sense'.
Tommy Fury and boxers like him are the reason this sport started to die. Tommy, you have 24 hours to fix this. pic.twitter.com/JZFh6VAiGo— Jake Paul (@jakepaul) June 22, 2022
Posting a video to Twitter with the caption: "Tommy Fury and boxers like him are the reason this sport started to die. Tommy, you have 24 hours to fix this.", Paul called out his opponent for making 'excuses'.
Paul said: "Yet again I wake up this morning to another text from my manager saying that Tommy Fury is pulling out of the fight.
"We agreed to all of the terms, everything is ready to go, we're 45 days away from the fight. What's the excuse? 'Oh I can't come and I can't do it because my dad can't be there with me during the fight.' Well Tommy, your dad has been banned from the United States for 15 years, you've known this the whole entire time.
The fight is on. August 6th. Forget a team or any other bullshit. I don’t need anybody to help me lay you flat on that canvas. Oh and thanks for finally signing the drug testing… you only agreed to it when you realised the fight was at risk - who needs who 😂 https://t.co/bt6CL24HNh— Tommy Fury (@tommytntfury) June 22, 2022
"I will agree to not have my team around me during the fight week, I will agree to not fight with my coaches in my corner. This is what real boxers do, they make fights f*****g happen."
In response, Fury wrote: "The fight is on. August 6th. Forget a team or any other bullshit. I don’t need anybody to help me lay you flat on that canvas. Oh and thanks for finally signing the drug testing… you only agreed to it when you realised the fight was at risk - who needs who."
Fury has been bullish about the upcoming fight between the pair, asserting on Twitter that he will 'see you august 6th pal' and there will finally be a fight to follow the war of words between the two.
Beyond the bonuses and money to be paid there are some odd clauses to the fight, with one such stipulation being that Fury must change his name to 'Tommy Fumbles' for 30 days if he loses.
Fury's father John also said ahead of their previous bout that his son might have to quit boxing if he loses to YouTuber Paul or even doesn't beat him convincingly.
At this point it might be best if the two just got in the ring and settled this once and for all.
