Tommy Fury fight with Jake Paul 'a way off' says dad John as Love Islander cruises to victory in American debut

JOHN FURY reckons YouTube star Jake Paul won't want to fight his son Tommy in the near future.

Love Island star Fury cruised to a unanimous decision victory over MMA fighter Anthony Taylor in his American debut early on Monday morning.

TNT has been gunning for a fight with The Problem Child for several months, but his old man doesn't foresee the bout happening anytime soon.

He told BT Sport: "To be honest with you, I think the Jake Paul fight, looking in Jake Paul's eyes, is a way off.

"But Tommy brings his own thing to this pay-per-view. He's his own pay-per-view star, he's got his own credibility.

"That's why Jake Paul wants him on the show. Not just to fight him, it's what Tommy brings himself.

"He's got millions of Instagram followers, he's out there, he's a good-looking kid, he can fight.

"He's got a lot to offer, has Tommy, that's why he's on this show."


Fury, 22, called out the younger Paul brother moments after his dominant victory over Taylor, saying: "Jake Paul should have an easy night [based] on that night.

"So he's got no excuse for not taking the fight. Let's get it on jake Paul. I've done my bit, you do your bit.

"It should be easy enough for him like I said. I went four rounds with his sparring partner.

"Jump in the ring it's should be no test at all."

He added: "Looking at that, Jake Paul, you should have an easy night mate, shouldn't you?

"There's no excuses now. You've seen everybody, I've had the biggest cheer in the place.

"There's no excuses, no running, no hiding. I want you next, you bum. Let's get it on."

Despite cruising to his seventh professional victory, Fury wasn't impressed with his display.

He said: "It wasn't my best performance and everyone will know that.

"But at the end of the day, boxing is the toughest game in the world. If it was easy, everybody in the world would be doing it.

"I'm learning day by day, each session that I have in the gym. I'm getting better.

"It's the hardest game in the world and I'm trying my hardest. That's all that I can say."
