‘Funky’ was one opponent in Paul’s hit-list for a long time.

In fact, past few months he’s engaged in tremendous verbal spats with many bigwigs of boxing and MMA. One such name he’s traded the verbal jabs with is the heavyweight king, Tyson Fury’s brother, Tommy Fury.

Lately, Michael Benson shared a video of the younger Fury. Here, the young gun talked about his nemesis ‘The Problem Child’, and even called him out for a fight.

He said, “I’m here, I’m ready and I’m getting to fight. This man (Jake Paul) obviously isn’t. And if he’s not getting to fight, stop using my name and if you wanna fight, come and get.”

Ever since a win over ex-NBA star Nate Robinson, Jake Paul has stirred the entire fight world. He has struck every fight fan’s eye with his antics outside the game and is on the roadway to become a bad boy of the sport.

That said, he’s called out some of the biggest fighting stars, including the former UFC double champ, Conor McGregor.

Paul already has a successful career in the entertainment industry, but ‘The Problem Child’ is keen to expand his fan base in boxing as well. Considering the same, it is unquestionable that Paul might lock horns with the likes of Tommy Fury and many other pugilists in the coming time.

Jake Paul vs Tommy Fury – will it happen this year?

Until now, Jake Paul has taken all of his fights in the cruiserweight landscape. Whereas, Tommy Fury has been a predominant light-heavyweight in his short yet sublime career.

However, with Paul’s recent progress in the sport, it seems he will look forward to contending against even bigger and noteworthy opponents.
