Jake Paul has called out several people including Tyson Fury’s brother Tommy Fury for a long time now. Jake Paul even called Tyson Fury embarrassing for trying to convince him to face Tommy Fury. It seems Chael Sonnen has defended Jake Paul’s decision to refuse drug tested.
Tommy Fury fought on the same card as Jake Paul vs Tyron Woodley. Fury fought against Anthony Taylor. Fury managed to win it via a unanimous decision as it went the distance instead of a quick victory, which surprised many.
It was claimed by Jake Paul that Tommy Fury accepted his best for a boxing match. Tommy Fury also recently claimed that he will end Jake Paul’s boxing career once he is done with him.
Jake Paul was also accused of taking performance-enhancing drugs recently. While speaking on his podcast, MMA legend Chael Sonnen talked about Jake Paul refusing drug testing before the fight against Tommy Fury. Sonnen defended Paul’s decision and said that it was the right call.
“He [Jake Paul], now within four fights, has the leading family of boxing having their youngest protégé begging and jumping through hoops to get on the docket with him. I mean, there’s a real brilliance in everything that Paul did. But what Paul would not do is agree to VADA. VADA stands for Voluntary Anti-Doping Agency. Now, you take that however you want. And quite frankly, I don’t think you’re going to get a different result if Paul p**s in the cup or if I p** in the cup for him. I will only share with you – Nobody should do VADA. VADA should not have the doors open. It is the most ridiculous thing. Why would you ever, ever offer to put yourself under scrutiny? That is a fool’s move.
Why would you ever volunteer to put yourself in a position that doesn’t have anything positive? You don’t go into VADA and it’s a lottery system, and they’re going to give you an extra 15 grand. You don’t go into VADA, and you pass it, and they have any level of media or credibility where they can break into SportsCenter at the top of the hour and announce to the world that you passed. You get absolutely nothing for it, and you potentially get suspended if you did agree to do it. I’m only sharing this with you because I know how it looks for Paul. And I know how it looks for other people who publicly refuse to do VADA. You are still under state sanctioning. You are still under the promotion sanctions should they want to step in and do it. There still is a testing level. You’re just not volunteering to go an extra step – And only a fool would!”
Paul and Fury are set to duke it out on December 18th in the Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida. We will have to wait and see who will win the match.
