However, there is still no confirmed opponent for Paul’s return, but there have been rumors that British boxer Tommy Fury will face Paul in his next fight. Moreover, it looks like they are true as ‘The Problem Child’ came out to address the possibility of the fight and also had a stern warning for Fury.

Jake Paul gives Fury an Ultimatum

Paul recently took to Twitter and gave Fury an ultimatum as he took shots at Fury for pulling out from their scheduled fight last year. He also offered Fury a $2 million purse to fight him, as he wrote,” Tommy Fury, you pulled out last year. Then you agree to fight me now but your dad is trying to pull you out again?  We’ve given you everything you asked for $2M purse, VADA testing, Tampon’s “

Fury is yet to respond to Paul’s statement but he will be looking to address this as soon as possible, as Paul has only given him 24 hours to respond. Moreover, the $2 million dollars will by far be the biggest purse of Fury’s career. If Fury ignores his call, Paul also has other options as he has been recently called out by UFC welterweight Nate Diaz for a potential fight.

Nate Diaz calls out Paul

Diaz recently took to Twitter to cite his frustrations with his current promoter UFC asking the company to release him from his contract or give him a fight as he posted a video of Paul’s knockout of Woodely with the caption, “Ufc release now please or give me fight with anyone in July or augustI have bigger s**t to do”

Many fans saw this video as Diaz potentially hinting a fight with Paul if he is released from his contract. Moreover, Paul also replied to Diaz saying that he would take on the MMA fighter and also took shots at UFC president Dana White as he tweeted, “Dana – I’m happy to be Nate’s last fight in UFC. You know the terms: pay fighters more and give them healthcare. Sweetener: I will fight for free.”

However, a possibility of a fight between the two this year seems a little farfetched as Diaz is still under contract with the UFC. But, this certainly doesn’t mean a fight in the future between the two is not possible, as Diaz has only one fight left in his contract, after which Diaz can freely negotiate with Paul.
