John Fury has lambasted a future fight between his son Tommy and Jake Paul. After the pair’s grudge match was cancelled last year due to illness and injury sustained by the 2019 Love Island star, negotiations to reschedule the bout are now reportedly nearing completion.
But the father of the 23-year-old is not happy about it and voiced his frustration on social media. In an Instagram video, he fumed: “Quick video – People are mentioning me saying I am saying that there is negotiations in place for Tommy to fight this clown from overseas.
“It’s not true. I have nothing to do with this at all because it’s a pile of s***. I don’t like anybody who is associated with those people over there. They’re nothing but a pack of t*****s, YouTubers, and I’m not interested in it one bit in any way, shape or form.
“So people, hear this; don’t keep using my name saying I’m saying this or I’m saying that because it’s not true. I want nothing to do with this farce at all – not now, not ever.”
It was reported yesterday that the highly-anticipatedboxingclash is “90-per-cent done” with a full agreement finally almost reached. It appears Paul and Fury will finally clash once the Mancunian’s team sort some minor details regarding the fight.
Paul’s coach Danny Smith confirmed an announcement is imminent with the YouTuber’s side of the deal “done”. Smith has been training the YouTuber, 25, at his training base in Puerto Rico.
Who are you fancying to win out of Fury and Paul? Let us know in the comments section.
Smith told Vegas Insider: “I'd probably say that we're around 90% done but we're just waiting on their end. We're good on our end. Whatever particulars that need to be worked out there end that's what we're waiting on.”
He added: “I think so without question [ Tommy Fury is the right fight for Jake]. And I like it because Tommy is a very fast foot guy, very fast hands and he moves around and understands distance and range, he boxes fairly well. It's going to be really, really good.
“He's not a huge puncher, but decent, with the right hand he is pretty decent. I think that it's a really, really good step up for both guys to be honest. The reason I'm picking Jake to beat Tommy is because Jake has more of a dog mentality, the bigger puncher, and he's willing to trade."
