‘I’m glad I wasn’t there’: Frank Warren slams ‘silly’ altercation between Tommy Fury and Jake Paul, labelling their behaviour in Dubai as ‘ridiculous’… as he reveals their fight should be ‘finalised in the next week’

  • Frank Warren said Tommy Fury’s altercation with Jake Paul in Dubai was ‘silly’
  • The promoter said he was ‘glad’ he wasn’t there to watch the ‘ridiculous’ incident
  • Warren, 70, also said he doesn’t understand why YouTuber’s act the way they do
  • Warren is confident they can arrange a fight between Fury and Paul for February  

Frank Warren says Tommy Fury’s altercation with Jake Paul on the undercard of Floyd Mayweather vs Deji was ‘silly’ and left him ‘scratching his head’. 

Paul attended Fury’s exhibition bout with Rolly Lambert at the Coca-Cola Arena in Dubai and hurled abuse at the 23-year-old while commentating from ring side. 

However, the furious exchange that Warren is referring to took place after the six-round clash had finished. Fury and his father John were seen arguing with Paul.

Warren is ‘glad’ he wasn’t there to witness their ‘ridiculous’ behaviour and said he doesn’t understand why YouTuber’s like Paul act the way they do.

Speaking to TalkSPORT, Warren said: ‘I’m glad I wasn’t there. It’s all a bit silly and gets a bit ridiculous, but I don’t know, but for some reason it is what it is.

‘This sort of YouTube type of thing, remember I come from the purest boxing background, and I look at it sometimes and I just scratch my head, but maybe I’m just getting older and I’m missing the point.’

Fury took to the ring last weekend to face Lambert in an exhibition bout after Paul Bamba pulled out of their scheduled fight.

Paul was also present at the Coca-Cola Arena in Dubai on the weekend, having been invited as a guest commentator.

Paul was heard screaming ‘you’re f***ing s**t’ and ‘you’ve got no d**k’ at Fury while the exhibition was taking place. 

The 23-year-old brother of Tyson Fury responded throughout the fight, calling his long-term rival a ‘b***h’ during the third round of his six-round clash. 

However, it was after the fight that things really kicked off. John was the one who instigated things by climbing inside the ring, ripping off his shirt and calling out Paul.

The 58-year-old man said: ‘Forget my son, I’m the king of the bare-knuckle man.’ To which Paul responded: ‘You’re a miserable old man. Come fight me right now then.’  

Fury, who is now without a professional fight since his six-round points win over Daniel Bocianski in April, then joined the equation, stating: ‘There’s a certain b***h from ringside that I want in the ring now.

‘Tell him to get in here because he would never have the b***h to get in here and fight a man of this caliber on a few hours notice.’

Paul took to Twitter shortly after the incident to publicly agree to fight Fury in the UK at some point in February next year.

The YouTuber-turned-boxer sent a message to Warren – giving him seven days to respond and confirm the fight. 

Warren has told TalkSPORT he is confident they can agree a fight within the timeframe given by Paul. 

The promoter said: ‘It will probably be in late February or March. The reason why it didn’t go [before], the contracts were all signed, because of the problems he had with the US immigration.

‘We are all past that now. Jake is up for coming over here and we have to get the deal finalised in the next week or so.’
