Jake Paul Unsure About Tommy Fury Fighting Him

They are scheduled to fight after two failed tries to secure a bout.

American professional boxer Jake Paul and Tommy Fury (8-0, 4 KOs) stood face-to-face in the ring on January 28, just a month before their anticipated matchup in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

Fury has sounded very confident on the microphone, believing that he can tackle the YouTuber in their eight-round, 185-pound cruiserweight fight. On the other hand, Paul isn’t convinced that he will fight the 23-year-old on February 26.

The social media superstar believes that Fury will follow through as their grudge match is scheduled. He has even said that another former UFC fighter, Mike Perry, is the backup option, in case the British boxer doesn’t headline the main event in February.

“Yeah, look, a part of me definitely still doubts [Fury will fight],” Paul bluntly stated during a press conference Saturday night at OVO Arena Wembley in London. “And it’s scary and it’s annoying. And him not showing up to the face-to-face we were just supposed to do right now [at the press conference], it sucks.

“And the kid’s not necessarily reliable. But the money’s good, man, for him. So, he would just be so dumb [to not fight]. And I think he’s probably tired of Molly making all the money in the relationship. He’s got a kid now, so he needs to help pay for some diapers.”
