Tommy Fury and Jake Paul will settle their differences in the ring, but they could have come to blows in August if it hadn’t been for Logan Paul.
Jake had just won his fourth consecutive fight, against Tyron Woodley, and was partying in the ring when Fury appeared.
WBC heavyweight champion Tyson’s younger brother earlier in the night beat Paul’s training partner Anthony ‘Pretty Boy’ Taylor and focused on Paul – the main event.
Paul won a close split decision over the former UFC welterweight champion, Woodley and Fury wanted to step into the ring and face the boxer-turned-YouTuber, but his older brother Logan begged him not to.
Fury and the Pauls eventually had a backstage altercation after the event was halted.
At the post-show press conference, the Briton opened up about the incident and being refused entry to the ring.
“His whole team landed,” he explained at the time. “Jake Paul faces me, but then he sees me at ringside, I lean over the ropes waiting to get in – this is Logan [shakes his head] “No, no, not now. ”
“They are not fighters,” he added.
“Let’s be honest, if he really wanted to fight me, I would have been in that ring by the end of the fight, through the ropes, let’s go. There is no turning back.
“But he didn’t want that. And the reason he didn’t want to was because if I got into it, he couldn’t go back on it. That’s why I wasn’t in the ring tonight.
In truth, Fury didn’t shower himself in fame with his performance of the night and he himself called his display a “*** dogs”.
But the two will now settle their differences in the ring, with Tampa and Flordia hosting the fight.
Fury is now 7-0 with 4 KOs in professional boxing, while Paul is 4-0 with 3 KOs, but he has so far fought athletes from other walks of life who box for the first time. when they meet him.
The Briton has been warned by his own family of the damage to his reputation caused by a loss to Paul, which is why big brother Tyson has coached him for the biggest fight of his fledgling career so far.
