Jake Paul has slammed Tommy Fury as the “biggest b**** in boxing” for pulling out of their scheduled fight just days out from the event.
The YouTube star would have faced his toughest career test in Fury, with the Love Island star having fought and won seven times as a professional, after a brief amateur career.
But the bout has been cancelled after Fury removed himself from their pay-per-view showcase due to an injury he suffered during fight camp in Manchester.
The YouTube star took to social media to make his feelings about Fury clear, as he now prepares to instead rematch Tyron Woodley in a late notice replacement fight.
“He has pulled out of the fight, the Furys have pulled out of the fight due to a “medical condition”, who knows what the f*** is going on in that camp?!”
And Paul mocked reality TV star Fury for “fumbling the biggest bag of his life” as he looks set to miss out on millions.
Paul will still fight on December 18 at the Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida, this time against Woodley, whom he defeated by split decision last time out in August.
The 4-0 professional boxer was taken the distance for the first time in his young career by the ex-UFC welterweight champion.
“I couldn’t believe the news at first, it still doesn’t even seem real.,” Paul continued.
“He fumbled the biggest bag of his life and now he will be watching at home, paying me $60 instead of getting paid millions of dollars to fight me.
“I fought with a broken nose, I fought sick, get the f*** over it, this is boxing.”
And Paul believes that the pressure of his first main event and the scale of the fight got to Fury, causing him to pull out.
The official reason appears to be an illness, although Fury has as yet not made a statement on the matter.
“It’s official, he was scared,” Paul continued. “I think the pressure got to him, the s*** talk got to him, that’s the bad news guys.
“The good news is that Mr Tyron Woodley, we called him up and we were like ‘do you want to take the fight?’ And he said he’d take the fight and do the rematch.
“I’m giving him $500,000 extra if he can knock me out.”
Paul expanded in a written statement: “When my team woke me up on Friday to tell me Tommy Fumbles was pulling out, I told them I’ll fight anyone on December 18th.
“Troy, Trey, Trevor, Travis,… I don’t give a f*** who it is. Tommy’s pulling out because of a “medical condition” called vaginitis.
“Unlike the Fury’s, Tyron actually has some balls, is stepping in, and contractually he is getting an extra $500,000 if he knocks me out.
“First time I outboxed him. This time I’m gonna punish him and leave no doubt.”Internet Explorer Channel Network
