Tommy Fury’s grudge match with Jake Paul is being negotiated and his promoter Frank Warren says “I feel it’s going to occur”.
The youthful brother of WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury and the YouTuber-turned-boxer started their rivalry in a collection of social media spats which escalated into challenges to settle it within the ring.
“We’re sorting contracts out in the mean time,” Fury’s promoter Warren advised Sky Sports activities.
Tommy Fury says he’ll make Jake Paul pay for his private feedback and break each bone in his face!
“Till they’re signed, we all know it doesn’t suggest something.
“If it occurs, will probably be within the States.
“I feel it may occur. We’re not far off doing it.”
Fury lately received his US debut on the undercard to Paul’s greatest win but, towards former UFC champion Tyron Woodley.
They had been concerned in a livid backstage confrontation when their paths crossed.
Fury’s older sibling, the heavyweight champion, weighed in on this rivalry by claiming that he would make Tommy give up boxing if he did not beat Paul.
This prompted Paul to up the ante – he proposed a wager that, if he misplaced, he would pay Fury an additional $500,000 but when Fury misplaced he should change his identify to ‘Tommy Fumbles’ for a yr.
Warren joked: “A part of the contract is that we have got to resolve what the opposite man has to alter his identify to!
“That must be replicated.”
Jake Paul says a future showdown with Tommy Fury may very well be a ‘large combat’
Paul has received all 4 of his fights since swapping the net world for the boxing ring.
Fury, who discovered fame on Love Island, is undefeated in seven.
“They’re each novices,” Warren stated. “Tommy has had seven fights, the opposite man 4.
“Tommy has lots to study. He has to study his craft. His final newbie combat was when he was 15.
“But when he can earn the cash that he would earn from this combat? Who am I to face in the best way? It is life-changing.
“What Jake has completed is phenomenal. He has managed to monetise this.
Claressa Shields says that she would by no means combat on a Jake Paul undercard and will beat him ‘proper now’.
“The place was rammed [when Fury and Paul boxed on the same night]. The gang acquired there at 7pm and watched each single combat.
“We had Daniel Dubois on the present.
“It is fairly superb.”
Warren predicted about Fury vs Paul: “Will probably be actual enjoyable, the press conferences and the whole lot. They’re each witty guys.
“The combat itself? I fancy Tommy to be an excessive amount of for him.
“Let’s get it signed and we’ll discover out.”
