A third attempt at having Jake Paul take on Tommy Fury seems to be getting closer. On Tuesday, Paul sent a tweet to Fury’s promoter, Frank Warren, stating that he is willing to face TNT in the UK in February, as suggested by Tommy’s father, John.
After two previous failed attempts to make the fight happen, Paul is unwilling to stay long and has given Queensbury Promotions a seven-day deadline to finalize the paperwork (which ends on November 22).
In response, Warren promised to finalize the deal in “the next week or so” and appears to be aiming for the end of February as suggested, or a proposed new date in March.
“It will probably be the end of February or March,” Warren said. talk sport. “The reason why he didn’t come out [before]the contracts were all signed, because of the problems he had with the immigration of the United States.
For a while, it seemed like the fight would never happen. Many had given up hope and with Paul recently announcing that he is in talks to face Andrew Tate, talk of a Fury fight seemed far from the truth.
That was until this weekend when Fury reignited the rivalry after his lackluster exhibition fight against Rolly Lambert on the Floyd Mayweather vs. Deji Olatunji undercard. Taking the microphone, Fury demanded that Paul join him in the ring.
The YouTube star turned down the offer, instead motioning for his rival to face him outside of it. To which, Fury obeyed as security and held him between the ropes, while his father John ripped off his top and tried to do the same.
The whole scene was more WWE than boxing, but it certainly generated buzz online and the clip spread like wildfire. Now, the two parties will try to sit down and reach a new agreement.
Whether the seven-day deadline will be reached remains to be seen, as fights of this magnitude often take much longer to finish.
