Jake Paul confirms Tommy Fury has been offered $2.5 million and still avoiding the fight
Jake Paul has seemingly confirmed that Tommy Fury is being offered $2.5 million to fight him now. ‘The Problem Child’ is seemingly plotting a booking against Fury for the third time despite their two previous bookings falling through.
Sports commentator Wade Plem recently claimed to have learned about the exact amount through a source with ‘direct knowledge’ of the situation. According to ‘The Problem Child’, he could neither confirm nor deny the ‘accurate statement’.
What Paul confirmed is that Fury is still evading him despite being offered an amount that he is unlikely to come across again. The YouTuber wrote on Twitter:
“I cannot confirm nor deny this accurate statement. What I can confirm is Tommy Fury is never going to see the kind of money he is being offered to step in the ring with me. And yet he’s still on the run. #Boxer”
Jake Paul initially set up a clash against Tyson Fury’s half-brother Tommy in December 2021. However, Fury withdrew citing an injury and Paul went on to face Tyron Woodley for a second time, scoring a KO.
Paul and Fury were then rebooked for a clash at Madison Square Garden on August 6, 2022. However, the matchup fell through again, this time allegedly due to Fury’s visa issues.
Jake Paul has called out another opponent as Tommy Fury is allegedly ducking him

“Mike Perry, it might be your lucky year because Tommy [Fury] is running again. If the fans only knew how much money I was offering Tommy and he’s still ducking me. It’s pretty sad.”
