Boxing upstart Jake Paul confirms his next opponent — RT Sport News

YouTube star turned pro boxer Jake Paul appears to have gotten the toughest test of his boxing career to date after confirming contracts have been signed for his blockbuster fight with Tyson Fury’s younger brother Tommy Fury .

The duo were originally scheduled to fight last December before Fury, 23, pulled out after sustaining a rib injury before the fight. Fury was replaced by former UFC champion Tyron Woodley, whom Paul knocked out in the sixth round of their rematch.

The fight had once again appeared to be in jeopardy after a clearly frustrated Paul took to social media on Wednesday to detail what he said was Fury again”groping the bag“before the contest – although Paul confirmed on Thursday afternoon that Fury”grew a set overnight”.

In a video message explaining why Fury hasn’t signed the contract yet, Paul said: “What’s the excuse? “Oh, I can’t come and I can’t because my dad can’t be there with me during the fight.

Tommy, your father was banned from the United States for 15 years. You always knew it. He’s a criminal. He is not allowed to enter. When you fought Anthony Taylor in Cleveland, nor Tyson [Fury] or your father was there with you when you started in the United States. Now all of a sudden you need your team with you? It does not mean anything.

You are scared. You pretend to be a professional boxer but you don’t want to fight with me? Who have you talked so much about? Who you say you’re gonna turn on? Who are you telling that I’m nothing compared to you? Where’s all the chatter now, Tommy?

You’re an atypical fucking professional boxer who doesn’t want this fucking fight to happen. This is the biggest opportunity of your fucking life and you’re fumbling through the fucking bag again and I can’t believe how stupid you are. fucking idiot.

It seems this social media explosion did the trick.

In the hours that followed, Paul posted another tweet – this time a poster confirming the fight is official for August 6th at Madison Square Garden in what he called a double main event alongside the icon. women’s boxing Amanda Serrano, who will fight Brenda Carabajal.

Ok people he grew a set overnight“, announced Paul. “It’s official, I’m removing this little Fury’s head. Amanda Serrano and I hosted a main event at the mecca of boxing.

Fury confirmed the fight was underway in his own tweet, saying, “The contract has been signed. I don’t need a team to do this job, now that the drug test has been signed, there are no more problems. See you at the press conference.”

Both Paul and Fury remain undefeated in their boxing careers, although this will be the first time Jake Paul will face an opponent with significant boxing experience.

Fury is currently 8-0 in the ring and recently fought Poland’s Daniel Bocianski, previously 10-1, whom he beat on points. Paul is also unbeaten in his career, although critics say his record was carefully staged.
