Maybe they’re the ones using the steroids or whatever it is, like who knows, they’re a shady family. Do a side-by-side picture of me and Tommy, I’m like sort of, I’m like thick, but I’ve just always been naturally sort of a tubby kid, and Tommy is ripped to shreds. Why isn’t he fat like Tyson? My guess is whoever smelt it dealt it,” said Jake Paul.

When my team woke me up on Friday to tell me Tommy Fumbles was pulling out, I told them I’ll fight anyone on December 18th. Troy, Trey, Trevor, Travis,… I don’t give a f**k who it is. Tommy’s pulling out because of a “medical condition” called vaginitis,” said Paul.
