He said, “He went eight rounds with a guy you just walk forward like a blank of wooden like didn’t throw a shot. And every time Tyrone did throw a shot, he nearly knocked him out.”

“I found what round was he eating with a straight right? Number four. And nearly knocked Jake Paul out, didn’t know what day was for Jake Paul is one of them, you’d be surprised if you see him in the ring again.”

He confronted me in the hallway there. And he’s all about 15-20 team of him jump all over us. Who’s there usually to fight there, and that is big in front of cameras but small by itself,” added Fury.

Fury and Paul share a great rivalry. Over the past few months, their rift has only increased and the pair have challenged each other numerous times for a fight. But with the fight Paul put against Woodley, it’s hard to predict whether he’d face the likes of Fury and more nemesis.

Citing that, the possibility of ‘The Problem Child’ fighting Tommy Fury seems to be slim. This is because even if he gets past Woodley in the rematch, the YouTuber will have a stacked fight plan for his time ahead.

However, it’ll be interesting to see if Paul and Fury really get serious about facing each other inside the squared circle.
