The YouTube star was set for his toughest career test against Fury next week, and is now expected to fight Tyron Woodley in a short notice rematch of their bout from this summer
Jake Paul has slammed Tommy Fury as the “biggest b**** in boxing” for pulling out of their scheduled fight just days out from the event.
The YouTube star would have faced his toughest career test in Fury, with the Love Island star having fought and won seven times as a professional, after a brief amateur career.
But the bout has been cancelled after Fury removed himself from their pay-per-view showcase due to an injury he suffered during fight camp in Manchester.
The YouTube star took to social media to make his feelings about Fury clear, as he now prepares to instead rematch Tyron Woodley in a late notice replacement fight.
Paul said in a statement: “When my team woke me up on Friday to tell me Tommy Fumbles was pulling out, I told them I’ll fight anyone on December 18th.
“Troy, Trey, Trevor, Travis,… I don’t give a f*** who it is. Tommy’s pulling out because of a “medical condition” called vaginitis.
“Unlike the Fury’s, Tyron actually has some balls, is stepping in, and contractually he is getting an extra $500,000 if he knocks me out.
“First time I outboxed him. This time I’m gonna punish him and leave no doubt.”
Paul will still fight on December 18 at the Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida, this time against Woodley, whom he defeated by split decision last time out in August.
The 4-0 professional boxer was taken the distance for the first time in his young career by the ex-UFC welterweight champion.
