Jake Paul will face Tommy Fury next as long as his brother, Tyson fights Michael Hunter.
After Paul scored a first-round TKO win over Ben Askren on Saturday night, many people called him out including Tommy Fury. The brash YouTuber will have options for his next fight but says he would fight Tommy under one condition.
“I’m going to plant the seed now,” Paul told ES News (via Mirror). “Tommy Fury vs me and Michael Hunter against Tyson Fury on the same night. Tommy is weak… and Tommy’s girlfriend [Molly-Mae Hague] DM’d me before they went on that reality show. Then I wake up, and I see Tyson Fury, the heavyweight champ, tweets me and he was talking about Canelo too, saying it was boring and nobody was watching. So I was laughing along with it.”
If Hunter does beat Filip Hrgovic, he will earn a shot against Fury is he beats Joshua. The two fights could happen on the same card and it would be a massive fight. Regardless, Paul would fight Tommy Fury next time out.
“Then I get to the bottom of the Tweet and he’s calling me out to like fight someone, and the tweet is about his brother,” Paul said. “Oh, I didn’t even know he had a brother. Then he’s calling me out to fight his brother, and I’m like, ‘Bro, what the f*** is going on here?’ I didn’t know Tyson Fury had a bro? I like Tyson Fury. I don’t want a beef with Tyson Fury, but damn, if Tyson Fury took a s***, it would be his little brother.
“He’s literally like this little kid. My point is here. You’re Tyson Fury’s little brother. If you want to fight me, don’t let your big bro do it for you. Log in to Instagram or Twitter and call me out for yourself, bro. What’s going on in this boxing world?”
