John Fury squares up to Jake Paul after YouTuber talks smack throughout Tommy Fury commentary
| Last updated
A fuming John Fury squared up to Jake Paul after the YouTuber chatted pure s**t towards Tommy Fury during his boring exhibition fight in Dubai.
The complete and utter bore fest was the result of a last-minute match-up after Tommy missed weight.
Fury was supposed to fight Paul Bamba, who decided to call off the match because Tommy was deemed to be overweight in the weigh-in.
Bamba's replacement, Rolly Lambert Fogum, who deserves credit for coming in last minute, unfortunately didn't put up much of a fight, and neither did Tommy.
However, throughout tonight's match (13 November), Paul spent the whole time talking smack about Tommy Fury...and then after it finished, father John seemingly had enough and went full-Hulkamania - throwing his top off.
"Forget my son, I'm the king of the bareknuckle," Fury shouted.
Jake replied: "Nobody likes you, you're embarrassing. You're a fat, miserable, old man."
The YouTuber said: "Come down here and fight me bro," whereas John wanted him in the ring.
Shortly after the bizarre scenes, Tommy then calls out 'b*tch' Paul and demands him to make his way into the ring.
As you might have expected, Jake opted to stay put ringside and he later revealed why he wouldn't step through the ropes.
"He had the high ground. Anyone that knows about war knows the high ground. That was madness. Honestly, I thought damn…he should start an OnlyFans," Jake said.
Also for anyone wondering, the exhibition fight meant that no winner was announced - makes sense as the fighters didn't do much fighting.
The brother of Tyson was due to fight Paul Bamba tonight, but Tommy missed weight by nearly 7 pounds.
The fight contract, obtained by BoxingScene.com, states that fighters should weigh a maximum of 79.379 kilograms (175 pounds).
Tommy came in at 181.5 pounds.
Bamba said: “I wasn't given what I wanted, they've been telling people they offered me a bunch of things, ultimately when I get home and there's less to worry about I will be more vocal about this.
“At the end of the day there were two separate contracts for the weight like I’ve been stating, which is not fair. I don’t know whose fault that is, I’m not placing blame on anybody, but it’s not right.
“I made weight, I did what I needed to do, I was willing to make a negotiation and make things happen if things were done the right way.”
