John Fury Claims Jake Paul Has Refused Anti-Doping Test Ahead Of Tommy Fight

John Fury has claimed Jake Paul has opted out of taking an anti-doping test ahead of his fight with Tommy Fury next month.

The outspoken father said his son will be picking up 'millions' for the fight, before going into more detail about the contract.

Speaking to Rob Moore on YouTube, he said: "Listen, Tommy's getting paid more money for this than some world champions.

"He's getting paid in the millions, so if we get millions for getting wet we're gonna do it because it's good business."

But he then claimed that Paul refused to sign up to the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association (VADA) testing before the fight.

He went on: "There's all kinds of stuff in the contract, as you've got to do this and you've got to do that.

"I could go into it more and more, but I don't want to bore people with the politics.

"They wouldn't sign up to the VADA testing as well. That bothered me a little bit because I wanted that in the contract, but they wouldn't do that.

"I'm not even bothered about that, because of what they're going to do, they're going to do anyway.

"We just want the fight because we know we can win it.

"People think that Tommy's getting paid to lose, they're joking. A Fury would rather be put to death than go down that road."

This isn't the first time John has spoken about the contract, he previously revealed Paul's team had included some 'bizarre' clauses.

He told BT Sport: "[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..."

The pair will go head-to-head on 18 December.
