Also, as Taylor is Jake Paul’s sparring partner, the latter is eager to see how his partner fares against Fury. Recently, the duo met each other, and they teamed up to trash-talk Tommy Fury.

Paul said, “Official Tommy Fury, August 29th, he’s fighting my boy, my sparring partner, Anthony Taylor.”

Anthony Taylor added, “What’s up its Anthony Pretty Boy Taylor, Tommy Fury, I’m coming to knock you out.”

Jake Paul, over the past few months, has gone all out against some bigwigs of boxing and MMA. He also engaged in a verbal spat with ‘TNT’. With that, Paul took this opportunity to get onto the Brit’s nerves by roping in the latter’s upcoming opponent, Anthony Taylor, in his above video.

Although Paul took a dig at his arch-nemesis, he still is principally focused on his fight against Tyron Woodley, i.e. the main event on August 29th.
