TOMMY FURY says withdrawing from his fight against Jake Paul was “one of the worst times” of his life.

The younger brother of Tyson Fury was meant to face the loudmouth Youtuber-turned-boxer back in December but pulled out through injury.

Speaking to talkSPORT Fight Night Fury said: “As for pulling out of the fight. You know, it was one of the worst times of my life because it was something that we all work towards as a boxer.

“To headline a major event in America is something we just want and train for all our lives.

“For it to be two weeks away and then come out with such a devastating injury with a broken rib and being told not to fight by three medical doctors.

“It was a hard blow to take, and it still is when I think back about it.”

Instead Paul defeated former UFC star Tyron Woodley for the second time.

That bout, however, failed to attract as much attention as Fury-Paul would’ve done and pay-per-view sales were reportedly poor.

With Paul set to return to the ring soon and with no opponent, date or venue sorted, there remains the possibility of re-organising the fight.

And Fury revealed he is still keen to take on the American.

He said: “In my eyes, that fight is always there.

“If he wants the big fights and the big numbers and the big pay-per-views, he knows where to come.”
