Youtube star Jake Paul is apparently still very much interested in a clash with undefeated prospect Tommy Fury (5-0, 4 KOs), who is the younger brother of WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury.
Paul, 24-years-old, secured his third win as a pro boxer last month with a first round knockout of MMA veteran Ben Askren.
In his first two bouts, Paul stopped Youtuber AnEsonGib and NBA veteran Nate Robinson.
Should they fight, the 21-year-old Fury would be the first actual boxer that Paul has ever faced.
For the last few months, Paul and Fury have been trading words through press interviews and on social media.
While Fury has serious doubts about the contest coming off at all, Paul believes their fight will happen in the near future.
“I think we will see it soon,” Paul told The Sun.
“I want to make fights happen and make history and Tommy Fury is a spoon-fed, reality TV star who has lived in his brother’s shadow this whole entire time. I’m going to expose him as a terrible fighter, very soon, very soon. Man, this is fun. I’m just having fun and there’s so many people to fight, there’s a long list and it just keeps getting longer.”
Paul’s next opponent has yet to be determined.
He says there are ongoing discussions with several fighters – with all of them being being names.
“There’s a lot of guys. We’re in talks with a lot of different opponents and seeing who can get let out their UFC contracts. Seeing who has what obligations and figuring out a date,” Paul said.
“I’m not able to say names but when the deal gets done with one of these names, people are going to be blown away and shocked. It looks like we’re going to be busy over the next couple of years.”
