Jake Paul called out Tommy Fury yesterday for once again backing out of their scheduled fight. The two were scheduled to duke it out before Fury backed out last December due to an injury. The fight was rescheduled, but Tommy refused to sign on the dotted line to make it official.

Paul released a fiery video yesterday giving Tommy Fury 24 hours to sign on for the match or lose out on his $2 million purse. Jake said he had done everything possible to accommodate Fury, including extra flights, hotel rooms, plane tickets, and a specific drug testing method. Fury has answered that call, and the fight is now officially back on.

Jake Paul announced the news via Twitter this morning. He included a poster for the event and announced an official press conference. The fight will go down on Saturday, August 6 at Madison Square Garden.

“Okay people he grew a set over night. It’s official, Im taking this little Fury’s head off.


Amanda Serrano and I dual main-event at the Mecca of boxing.

Official press conference and ticket on-sale this Wednesday June 29th at 11AM.”

Jake Paul seemed convinced that Tommy Fury was not going to fight. In the end, he found his druthers and will now step into the ring with the social media star. Fans have been waiting for the match for a long time, and now it’s officially just over a month away.
