Jake Paul and Tommy Fury have been calling out each other, since the latter’s recent win over Scott Williams at Copper Box Arena in London. The matchup might seem bizarre to several fans as Tommy Fury is a professional boxer and Jake Paul is a YouTube boxer.

However, promoter Frank Warren is ready to stage the fight, if everything falls in place. He doesn’t consider it a perfect matchup, stating that ‘The Problem Child’ is yet to reach the experience of ‘TNT’. But looking at the human interest factor, Warren has given his approval for the fight.

Because it would be very interesting and I am sure everybody would love to see it. So, Jake, if you got the ba*** for it. Let’s go and do it mate.”

Tommy Fury, 5-0, hasn’t faced many elites yet. His last opponent, Williams, was 0-9 as a boxer and ‘TNT’ handing the pugilist his tenth defeat may not have been attractive for his own record and brand name.
