“This kid would murder Jake Paul. He’d get a life sentence if he murdered Jake Paul. That kid there [Jordan Grant] would have knocked Jake Paul out because these kids are fighting at Jake Paul’s age, and I’ll tell that to Jake Paul’s face.” (h/t Boxing News 24)

The rivalry between ‘The Problem Child’ and Tommy Fury isn’t new to boxing lovers. Over the past few months, the pair have gone all guns blazing against each other.

Both of them haven’t spared a single chance to take a dig at each other, and subsequently, challenge each other for a fight. But for now, the 24-year-old is lined up with the former UFC welterweight champ, Tyron Woodley.

The duo will lock horns with each other in a proficient boxing bout, thus looking to entertain a sea of fans. Until then, a fight between Jake Paul and Tommy Fury won’t really materialize.
