One of the biggest talking points over the past few weeks has been his potential bout with Tommy Fury. The brother of Tyson Fury previously got into an ugly verbal battle with Paul and also lashed out at him. And the YouTuber has now responded to Fury’s call-out.

The 3-0 boxer took to his Instagram story to address the situation, and iFL TV was quick to upload it on YouTube. Paul said, “The desperation is seeping through the pores of the Fury family. It’s quite embarrassing. The heavyweight champion of the world is on Instagram, talking about Jake Paul, begging me to fight his brother.”

Jake Paul tells Tommy Fury what it will take to make the fight

The undefeated boxer showed he has no interest in fighting Tommy Fury as yet. Moreover, he pointed out that the two brothers were more desperate for the fight than him wanting it. However, he also revealed what it would take for the bout to happen.

Paul said, “Fight someone real, do a real pay-per-view, and then maybe we can chat…Tommy, you fight for a hundred thousand dollars. You have some ladders to climb to get onto my level, unfortunately, my friend.”

Thus, this comment from Paul revealed he is not taking the Fury fight seriously. However, considering Paul has never fought a professional boxer, the statement will only draw more hate from fans.

What do you make of these comments from Jake Paul? Do you think he’s right to reject the Tommy Fury fight?
