Tommy Fury ‘in negotiations’ to fight Jake Paul at last, says John Fury


“We’re looking at the Jake Paul situation, but there’s a long way to go with it,” Fury’s father and coach John told Metro via Freebets.com.

“That’s still in negotiation and up in the air, the lawyers are dealing with it as we speak. If not August for Tommy’s next fight, it’ll be September because we’re busy ourselves up until then.

“I’m not interested in what Jake Paul does unless we’re fighting him, but he’s good for boxing. He’s bringing new eyes and he’s making a lot of noise.

“We’re trying our best to get the fight with Tommy over the line, but there are a couple of major factors we’re trying to get ironed out and if we can, we’ll do it; and if we can’t, it’ll be someone else.

“Whoever’s out there and it’s sensible, we’ll get it on.”

Paul has knocked out each man he has fought, having stopped former UFC star Ben Askren prior to his victories over Woodley.

Askren, a friend of Woodley, held titles in other mixed matial arts promotions before debuting in the UFC in 2019.
