Tommy Fury pleads with Jake Paul for new fight as duo have “unfinished business”

Tommy Fury has pleaded with Jake Paul to reschedule their hotly-anticipated grudge match and claimed the duo have "unfinished business" in a bid to goad the YouTuber back into the ring.

The two warring celebrities were originally due to face-off on December 18 last year.

But Fury pulled out with a week to go due to a broken rib and bacterial chest infection.

Ex-UFC champion Tyron Woodley filled in for the former Love Island star and succumbed in round six as fans screamed 'fix' on social media.

Victory for Paul took him to 5-0 in his professional boxing career, despite the fact he is yet to face an opponent with any prior pro experience in the ring.

Fury has warned that until he does, his reputation will remain under scrutiny, and called for their bout to be rescheduled so that he can prove his credentials.

He said on the MMA Hour: "It has become personal, because it’s unfinished business, like I said.

"This fight should’ve happened in December, and it [didn’t]. This fight needs to happen. There’s a lot of people out there that want to see this fight.

"I do believe that out of every fight Jake Paul can take at the minute, boxing-wise, this is the biggest fight he can take. And I do believe he knows that.

"Because if I wasn’t the big name or wasn’t worthy of fighting, you know as well as I know Jake Paul wouldn’t be mentioning me, because there’s a lot of people who call Jake Paul out and there’s a lot of people who don’t get the response.

"At the end of the day, this is the fight for Jake Paul to make to prove whether or not he’s a legitimate boxer and can be a legitimate contender in this game."

Speaking after his win over Woodley, Paul refused to commit to a fight with Fury – or any other fighter, for that matter.

"I don't really know what's next on the roadmap," he said.

"I've done it all, I've accomplished what I want to accomplish.

"I need to take a break, I've been going at this non-stop for a year and a half and it's a lot.

"I've done more than enough, four massive fights in 13 months. Nobody in the history of boxing has done what I've done at this age."

Paul has since hinted that he could retire from boxing and try his luck in UFC.

Just weeks after his defeat of Woodley, the controversial YouTuber tweeted that he would "immediately retire from boxing and fight Jorge Masvidal" if UFC president Dana White agreed to three of his demands.

That wouldn't bother Fury, who has told his rival to swap codes if he's not serious about boxing.

He fumed: "The fact of the matter is there’s unfinished business here and this fight needs to take place.

"Because how can he be serious about fighting if he’s never fought a boxer before? How can he be serious about this?

"He keeps referring to the UFC.

"If he wants to go and fight in the UFC, don’t put on a pair of boxing gloves again and go and fight in the UFC.

"Don’t call yourself a boxer if you’ve never ever fought one."
