Jake Paul reacts after Tommy Fury calls out YouTuber for rematch | Boxing | Sport

Jake Paul has mocked Tommy Fury’s rematch demand while preparing for his fight against Mike Tyson. YouTuber-turned-boxer Paul will be back in the ring on July 20 when he faces ‘Iron Mike’ at the 80,000 seat AT&T Stadium in Texas.

Paul admitted Tyson wasn’t his first choice of opponent and was pushing for a rematch against Fury after losing to him last year, but he claims the Love Island star priced himself out of the fight. Fury, who has been recovering from hand surgery since the beginning of this year, called Paul out on Instagram by writing: “When are we dancing again?”

Paul responded to the post by commenting: “You need money Tommy? Learn from big bro and stop letting daddy manage your career and finances. You lost out on the biggest opportunity of your life Paul Tyson. My next offer going to be half that.”

Paul claims he offered Fury $20million (£16m) for a two-fight deal that would have seen them fight in boxing before crossing over to MMA. The social media sensation, who signed to MMA promotion PFL last year, plans on having a six-month training camp for his cage debut after facing Tyson.

“We all know everyone tries to price themselves out if they don’t really want to fight and hide behind that. I’m on a different mission to become world champion. All doors for Tommy lead to me. I can do whatever I want. You think there’s more money? Cool, bring it to the table. Oh, you can’t? You haven’t brought anything to the table, please shut the f*** up then,” Paul told ESPN.

Fury has criticised Paul for fighting Tyson, who will be 58 years old by time their fight takes place in Texas. “I don’t want to give a prediction on that. It is a 60-year-old man getting in the ring with a 26-year-old (27) man. It is disgraceful. At the end of the day if you are a good man, you don’t want to fight a legend like that now.” he told JNMediaUK.

Fury hasn’t fought since beating Paul’s bitter rival KSI in a controversial points win last October. The brother of heavyweight champion Tyson called out Conor McGregor for his next fight, but doesn’t stand a chance of facing the Irishman because of his contractual status with the UFC.
