Tyson Fury, the current world heavyweight champion, accepted Jake Paul, a former boxer turned YouTuberchallenge,'s and will spend $1 million. In a boxing battle, Jake Paul will take on Tommy Fury, the brother of Tyson Fury.
Jake Paul shared a video on Twitter criticizing the Fury brothers. He challenged the heavyweight champion to up the stake after criticizing Tyson Fury for just betting $100,000 on his brother to defeat him.
Guys, Tyson Fury, who earned $40 million last year, is prepared to wager simply $100,000 on his brother, or two million, three million, or any amount you choose. Are you up for the challenge? Make a pact," the 25-year-old tweeted in response to His Brother Tommy.
On August 6 at Madison Square Garden, a highly anticipated bout between Tommy and Paul would take place. The match was scheduled to occur in December 2021. However, Tommy was forced to leave the competition due to a cracked rib and a nasty chest bacterial infection.
Taking the bait, Tyson Fury responded to Paul on Twitter in an American accent. The 25-year-old did not appear to have such a large amount of cash on hand, but he did put down the gauntlet by demanding to see the money.
In a video posted to Twitter, the heavyweight champion uttered, "Hey Jakey boy. You want to wager more than $100,000, right? You desire a larger wager. You desire $1,000,000. Let's get going.
Since I don't believe you have a million dollars, I want to see them in escrow. I'm not speaking of cryptocurrency; rather, I'm referring to genuine US green bags, he continued
After months of intense trash talk from both sides, the former Love Island star, who is still in the early phases of his professional boxing career, will now take against the similar novice YouTuber Jake. Jake is still fairly new to professional boxing, but he has already defeated former UFC fighters Tyron Woodley and Ben Askren with some amazing knockout wins.
Eight wins from eight fights, including four knockout victories, are a great record for the younger Fury. Tommy continues to be the favorite of the two amateur boxers despite the rising pressure on him to prevail. In his first interview, Tyson Fury put down the challenge, asking his brother to defeat the YouTube sensation when they face off in the ring.
