Tommy Fury needs Jake Paul combat: “All I see is simple cash towards an fool”
With the large monetary success of Jake Paul’s pay-per-view win over Ben Askren on April 17, it’s inevitable that Paul goes to combat once more, regardless of how a lot diehard boxing followers would possibly need him to go away.
Paul (formally 3-0, 3 KO) has confronted no person with a reliable boxing background thus far. 38-year-old entrepreneur Joe Fournier — who’s formally 9-0 (9 KO) in boxing — is one thought, and does no less than perceive the fundamentals of the game. He’d be a step up for the 24-year-old YouTube movie star.
However one other title that retains being floated out there’s Tommy Fury, brother to heavyweight champion Tyson. Paul has put his title on the market and even not too long ago mentioned he was “planting the seed” for the combat.
The 21-year-old Tommy (5-0, 4 KO) has repeatedly mentioned he’d take the combat, and once more informed talkSPORT that he needs Jake Paul within the ring, and took some pictures at Paul and Ben Askren whereas he was at it:
“We’ll take the combat. If he despatched the contract over tonight, it’d be signed and delivered straight again to him. All I see for that combat is simple cash towards an fool. He makes YouTube movies for a dwelling, he hasn’t been hit in his face in his total life, he doesn’t know what it’s prefer to take a shot. I’d put my mom in with Ben Askren and my mom would chin him as a result of he’s no good, he’s ineffective, he’s a wrestler. UFC just isn’t boxing. In case you’re gonna combat an MMA fighter you might as nicely combat a chef out of a kitchen as a result of they’ll’t combat, they’ll’t get up.”
Fury promoter Frank Warren can be on board and says he needs to get it achieved, too.
“Actions converse louder than phrases. I do know Jake’s acquired this following on YouTube and no matter he’s acquired. He says all the suitable issues, however you understand what? Do it. We wish to make the combat,” Warren informed iFL TV.
“It’s very easy. He takes 50 p.c, Tommy’s facet takes 50 p.c. Make the combat. Let’s get it achieved. Not an issue with us in any respect. Get it on. Tommy needs it. Cease speaking about it and do it. That’s the issue with all these guys, all of them appear to speak rather a lot, these YouTubers. They are saying what they wish to do, they search for the simple touches. If he’s actually critical, get it.”
Warren even put it proper on the market so far as TV rights — typically a sticking level in combat negotiations.
“I’ll let you know how straightforward it’s to make: Triller can do the worldwide TV rights and BT does the British ones, let’s get it on. There’s nothing to cease that combat occurring. Tommy needs it, I would like it, and I do know who the winner’s going to be there. So show me fallacious. However if you happen to’re not going to do it, cease telling folks that you really want the combat. Do it!”
Tommy is a bit smaller than Jake, he’s actually most likely a light-weight heavyweight, however that’s not that massive of a deal. He’s an even bigger man than Ben Askren, and Tommy — whereas no seasoned veteran and, in his personal phrases, not some nice beginner or something both — is legitimately educated with boxing in his blood. He’s an actual boxing prospect who is aware of what he’s doing within the ring, which is much more than might be mentioned for Askren (with respect to his MMA profession), Nate Robinson, or AnEsonGib. For starters, he is aware of learn how to stand and learn how to throw a correct punch with boxing kind. Big step up in comparison with Paul’s prior opponents.
On the opposite facet, Paul has mentioned the groups have spoken, which Warren additionally mentioned is true.
“I feel it’s an ideal matchup, and I feel it’d be a large, large combat,” Paul informed ESPN’s Max Kellerman. “Our groups are speaking and making an attempt to determine one thing out. I’m with it. I’ll combat whoever, wherever, at any time when.”
