'Bizarre' Clauses In The Contract For Jake Paul And Tommy Fury Fight

Jake Paul has reportedly written a whole heap of very strange clauses into the contract of his recently announced fight against Tommy Fury.

It's been talked about for a good long time now, but Tommy Fury and Jake Paul have finally agreed to meet in the ring on December 18 in Tampa, Florida.

It's a big fight, not least because of the acrimonious chat that preceded it, but also because of the two fighters' massive social media followings, and the fact that Fury represents the first actual boxer that Jake Paul has agreed to take on so far in his career.

However, he always likes to try to make things a little bit unusual, and - according to Fury's dad John - this fight is no different.

There are things such as additional money to be paid from Paul's purse should Fury beat him, and even a mandatory name change to 'Tommy Fumbles' if Paul ends up winning the bout.

John, who is heavyweight champ Tyson's dad as well as up-and-comer Tommy's, told BT Sport about the 'bizarre' clauses within the document.

He said: "[Paul's team] are being awkward.

"The contract has been bizarre. If I was going to go through what they've put in the contract, we'd be here all day.

"I've said yes to everything; yes, yes, yes, yes, do what you've got to do because I know Jake Paul can't beat Tommy no matter what he does."

Paul himself has shared a few shots of the contract on his social media accounts, including text that reads: "If Fury is declared the winner of the Bout, Paul hereby agrees to pay Fury Five Hundred Thousand Dollars ($500,000.00) directly from Paul's purse as an additional fighter bonus.

"However, if Paul is declared the winner of the Bout, Fury hereby agrees to (i) commence, within thirty (30) days of the conclusion of the Bout, an application process with the Royal Courts of Justice in the United Kingdom to obtain a deed poll legally changing Fury's name to "Tommy Fumbles," (ii) change, within twenty four (24) hours of the Bout, all of his social media accounts to reflect the name "Tommy Fumbles:, and (iii) immediately after the Bout utilise the name "Tommy Fumbles" in all forms of media..."

You see, there's some very odd stuff therein.

Still, it will be a step up for Paul, as he's so far defeated only fellow YouTubers, a basketballer, and a couple of former MMA fighters.

For Fury, the challenge is different.

Although he's had more experience in his boxing career and has been training for it his whole life, this will be easily his highest-profile fight yet, and his perceived stances as standing up for boxing could add extra pressure.

Either way, we'll find out on December 18.
