Jake Paul had everything in place for his long-awaited fight with Tommy Fury. The two were set to lock horns a month and a half from today. Despite Paul meeting all of Fury’s demands, Tommy has once again pulled out of the fight.

In an irate video posted to Twitter, Jake Paul was disgusted. He ran down a laundry list of agreements that the fighters had made. This morning, he was notified that Tommy Fury was not going to be there for the bout.

“Yet again, I wake up this morning to another text from my manager saying that Tommy Fury is pulling out of the fight. We agreed to all of the terms. Everything is ready to go. We’re 45 days away from the fight. We agreed to his $2 million purse. We agreed to VATA testing. Extra flights, extra rooms, extra tickets to the fight.

We’re scheduled to have a press conference next week in New York. His whole entire team was like, ‘Yeah, everything’s good, we’re signing the contract today.’ It kept on getting pushed… Til now. What’s the excuse? ‘Oh, I can’t come and I can’t do it because my dad can’t be there with me during the fight.’

Well, Tommy, your dad has been banned from the United States for 15 years. You’ve known this the whole entire time. He’s a criminal. He’s not allowed in. When you fought Anthony Taylor in Cleveland, neither Tyson nor your dad were there with you in your US debut. Now, all of the sudden you need your team with you? That doesn’t make any f*cking sense.”

Jake Paul said that Tommy Fury is fumbling the bag on the greatest opportunity of his career. Paul gave Fury 24 hours to remedy the situation. We will have to wait and see if Fury responds.
