Via Daniele D’Alessio: In a recent interview on The Volume, Jake Paul (5-0.4 KOs) said that he doesn’t want to postpone his fight with Tommy Fury (7-0.4 KOs) and that he wants to fight Tyson Fury (31-0 -1, 22 KOs) or John Fury instead.
“He wants his payday. But I told you, I don’t want to fight him, he doesn’t deserve it. I want to fight Tyson Fury. I will fight my brother or his father before I fight Tommy. ”
Tommy and Paul were due to meet in the ring on December 18, 2020, but the former love island contestant withdrew due to a broken rib and a chest infection.

Tyson Fury’s father famously shouted abuse The Problem Child during a live broadcast press conference before Paul-Fury was scheduled to take place.
Now at the age of 57, it’s hard to see Big John stepping into the ring with a man half a year older than him. However, in this age of Youtuber boxing, anything is possible.
After destruction Tyron Woodley (0-2, 0 KO) in the second round, Paul definitely needs a step up in competition and some boxing pros like Tony Bellew (30-3-1, 20 KOs) want him to prove himself in front of a legitimate professional boxer.
Time will tell whether The Problem Child is serious about boxing or just wants to make as much money from the sport as possible.
Former middleweight world champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr (53-6-1, 34 KOs) has also been mentioned by Paul and he believes this will be a reliable win.
Whether you like Paul or not, he has a wide array of options and millions of people are likely to catch his next fight no matter who he faces.
