Jake Paul, who is known for giving his opponents unusual challenges, challenged ‘TNT’ with an unusual wager. He claimed that should Tommy lose, he would have to change his last name to Fumbles for an entire year. This change would even include his social media handles and would require him to use the name in all forms of media.

‘TNT’ recently responded to the same. He said, “Get that sent over to my lawyers asap right now. We’ll get locked and sorted because there’s not a chance in hell you’re winning this fight. You leaving on a stretcher, you getting knocked spark out as well you know it. Get over to me now.”
