Frank Warren Plans To Reach Out To Showtime For Potential Paul vs. Fury Bout
Queensberry Promotions’ Frank Warren is going to speak with Showtime to potentially book Jake Paul vs. Tommy Fury.
Paul, a YouTube celebrity with a 3-0 pro boxing record, has been trading barbs with Fury. It’s gotten to the point where Paul has claimed that Fury’s girlfriend, Molly-Mae Hauge slid in his DM’s. Hauge fired back at Paul, claiming his screenshot was fake as the date doesn’t align with an emoji used in the alleged message.
With the heated war of words, Warren has shown interest in putting the fight together. Speaking to BT Sport, Warren explained why nothing had materialized when Paul had his dealings with Triller before making the move to Showtime.
“We were talking to Triller about making the fight between Jake Paul and Tommy Fury but basically, they didn’t want it! They said maybe in around four or five fights time and all this rubbish. But now Paul’s left Triller and gone to Showtime so we’re going to reach out to them and see what we can do.
“Paul apparently was saying that us talking 50-50 in any potential fight was ridiculous but it wasn’t us who called the fight out to begin with!
“A lot of this YouTube stuff, I don’t have a lot of time for – but he called us out! It’s not like Tommy’s unknown either. He’s got a few million followers on his social media platforms, he was on Love Island in this country, and obviously, he’s Tyson’s brother so he does bring something to the table.”
