Jake Paul offers to fight Tommy Fury’s ‘cringe old man’ dad John AND brother Tyson after Love Islander pulls out of bout


JAKE PAUL has revealed he would accept a fight against Tommy Fury’s dad John or world heavyweight champion brother Tyson.

Tommy pulled out of the December 18 showdown against Paul on Monday, citing a chest infection and broken rib.

The Love Islander’s withdrawal has led Paul to accept a rematch with Tyron Woodley on the same night – a man he beat by split decision back in August.

And with a future fight against Tommy now up in the air, the YouTuber has insisted he would be up for taking on his dad John or WBC champion Tyson instead.

Paul was involved in an altercation with John during a press conference for the fight against Tommy.

John squared up to the screen Paul was being broadcast on as the YouTuber wound him up.

But when asked to respond to John’s threat of ‘dropping’ him, Paul told talkSPORT: “I would say, start looking for a new job. You are a cringe old man. He’s an old, miserable man who never accomplished anything in his life.

“He has a mediocre boxing record and the best thing he ever did was have sex with Tyson’s mum to spawn Tyson.

“That’s his only accomplishment – having a giant kid who became heavyweight champion of the world.

Asked about fighting John, he then added: “I would fight John Fury, for sure! I think it would be hilarious. I was hoping he would have punched the TV.

“If he would have done it, man that would have been the most legendary press conference moments ever. He’s kind of a p***y for not.

“I would fight him. I would fight the whole family. If Tyson moved down to cruiserweight I would fight Tyson no problem.”

Paul’s comments come after he said Tommy will have to return girlfriend Molly Mae’s Christmas presents following his pull-out of their fight.

He said: “The whole fight build-up got to him and now he fumbled the biggest opportunity of his life, the biggest pay day of his life.

“He’s going to have to return all the Christmas presents he got Molly as he has no way of paying for them.”


Fury still hopes to fight Paul next year, but the American has refused to commit to a rescheduled date.

“The door is closing [for Tommy Fury],” he added. “He’s not reliable. He didn’t show up to the first press conference. He’s faking these injuries or whatever they are.

“It’s upsetting. So if he’s doing that now, then what is stopping him from doing it next year. For me, in a cynical way, I just want to leave him in the dust and never give him this opportunity again.”
