Boxing Hall of Fame promoter Frank Warren has vowed to make Tommy Fury versus Jake Paul following the pair’s social media back and forth. The two fighters have been exchanging words online after Paul responded to a tweet from heavyweight world champion Tyson Fury, challenging him to fight his younger brother.
Love Island star Tommy secured his fifth professional win last Saturday with a second-round stoppage of Scott Williams at the Copper Box Arena.
The light-heavyweight prospect has been dusting off the cobwebs in his last few outings after his boxing career was placed on hold for his reality TV commitments in 2019.
As part of a fighting family, Fury is not prepared to shy away from any challenge and is eager to lock horns with Paul after he was called out on Instagram.
Now Fury’s promoter Warren has revealed he can easily make the fight happen, should Paul be ready to step up to the plate.
“Look if he wants to make that fight, we can do it in a heartbeat,” Warren told iFL TV.
“No problem with that. If Jake feels he is a step up for Tommy then let’s do it.
“I always say if anyone gets in the ring then they’ve got some balls to do that but having said that, there are levels.
“When I say that Tommy’s learning the trade and is a bit of a novice, but he [Paul] doesn’t even reach the level of experience that Tommy has got.
“If he wants that fight, then let’s do it and I’m sure everyone would love to see it.
“So Jake, if you’ve got the balls, come and do it mate!”
Paul and his brother Logan are notorious trash-talkers who have called out a host of big names in months gone by including UFC star Conor McGregor.
The former needed no time to hit back after the Gypsy King tweeted “Jake Paul, where you at?”, in the aftermath of his brother’s victory.
“He calls me out to fight someone – his brother! I didn’t even know he had a brother,” Paul said on his Instagram story.
“You are Fury’s little brother? If you want to do something don’t let your brother do it for you.”
The 21-year-old Mancunian is ready to rumble though and responded: “Mr Jake Paul, I don’t need anybody to do my dirty work. I’ll call you out right now myself.
“You can fight me any time, any place, anywhere. All you’ve got to do is get in touch.”
