'Lowest point of my life' – Tommy Fury reveals torment after Jake Paul fight axe and abuse he has suffered since

TOMMY FURY’S lost Jake Paul fight – and the vile abuse he has faced – has been the lowest point of his life.

The 22-year-old Love Island hulk pulled out of his much-publicised bout with the American YouTube sensation- scheduled for last Saturday – with a chest infection and broken rib.

Ex-UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley took the short-notice rematch and Paul used the pre-fight build-up to troll Fury repeatedly about his lost opportunity.

And the younger brother of WBC heavyweight king Tyson Fury revealed he could not even go to the local shop without getting abused over cancelling the fight.

Coughing through an interview with Unibet Lowdown, Fury said: “I have been at the lowest point I have ever been at in my entire life, I have never felt anything so low.

“I had everything I could ever have dreamed of and then had it all ripped away through no fault of my own. It’s a bitter pill to swallow.

“I expected all the trolling from Jake, he is a prankster and a showman but I didn’t care.

“But I have had loads of terrible messages and if I was easily offended then I could be in a very bad place right now.

“The messages have been terrible, I don’t think I have had one good one.

“I went to the corner shop for some water and had people calling me a p****. Everyone has done a 360 on me.

“There are some loyal and nice fans who understand but some of the public have been so fickle, but that is the way it is, when I destroy him in the ring they will delete all the old ones.

“I am not thinking about the public, I am just trying to get over what has happened.”

The planned Florida showdown was booked as a pay-per-view on BT Sport with Tyson and high-profile dad John helping promote the bout.

Both Tyson and John made regular statements about how easy the bout would be for Tommy and insisted that he would be able to win even on his worst day with a string of possible injuries.

So online critics have had plenty of ammunition to hit Tommy with and he has hid away with Love Island beauty Molly-Mae to help him cope, as he hopes to rearrange the clash for March 2022.

He said: “I don’t care what anyone thinks apart from the family and girlfriend.

“I have shut myself off, only been around Molly, I have not been leaving the house.

“I have just been asking myself, 'Why me? Why now?’

“I have gone through that dark time myself and pulled myself out but I needed that alone time to gather my thoughts.

“It was nothing to do with the money, it was the fight and the fans and the weeks of training, that was all I was focused on.”
