The much-anticipated boxing match between Jake Paul and Tommy Fury continues to be in jeopardy. After Paul had to call Tommy out for not signing his contract, Fury was not allowed to enter the United States for a scheduled press conference. Jake thinks there is an easy solution to the problem, and he’s putting pressure on his opponent by dragging his World Heavyweight Champion brother into it.
In October, before the first scheduled version of the fight was canceled, Jake Paul and Tyson Fury made a bet. If Paul defeated Tommy Fury in their fight, he would have to change his last name. If Fury beat Jake, he’d earn an extra $500,000.
Jake Paul says Tyson is not holding up to his end of the bargain. In a recent tweet, he called out Fury for not setting up an escrow account for the wager. Jake thinks that is a sign that Tyson doesn’t believe in Tommy.
“Tommy Fury is in hiding. Bitch made.
Tyson Fury lawyer never got back to my team on setting up escrow for our $1M bet. Never believed in his brother.
Instructed my team to do a Hova and move On To The Next One”
The fight is scheduled to take place on August 6 at Madison Square Garden. As it stands, Tommy Fury is unable to get into the United States due to his family’s ties to a notorious organized crime boss. Until that is resolved, fans can expect Jake Paul to continue to taunt and trash talk both Tyson and Tommy.
