Frank Warren threatens to make a fight between Jake Paul and Tommy Fury, while Tyson Fury calls out YouTuber
Tommy Fury is preparing to face YouTuber Jake Paul, who is aiming to break into the professional boxing ranks.
Following the pair’s social media back and forth, boxing Hall of Fame promoter Frank Warren has promised to make Tommy Fury vs. Jake Paul a reality. After Paul responded to a tweet from heavyweight world champion Tyson Fury challenging him to fight his younger brother, the two boxers have been trading barbs online.
Tommy, the Love Island star, won his fifth professional fight last Saturday at the Copper Box Arena, stopping Scott Williams in the second round.
After his boxing career was put on pause in 2019 due to his reality TV commitments, the light-heavyweight prospect has been dusting off the cobwebs in his last few appearances.
Fury, who comes from a fighting family, isn’t afraid to take on any challenge, and he’s anxious to fight Paul after he was called out on Instagram.
Now, Fury’s promoter Warren has disclosed that if Paul is willing to step up to the plate, he can easily make the fight happen.

Warren told iFL TV, “Look, if he wants to make that fight, we can do it in a moment.”
“It’s no problem at all. Let’s do it if Jake thinks he’s a step up for Tommy.
“I usually say that if someone gets in the ring, they must have some balls to do so, but there are levels to that.
“When I say Tommy is learning the craft and is a bit of a newbie, he [Paul] doesn’t even come close to Tommy’s degree of experience.
“Let’s do it if he wants to, and I’m sure everyone would want to see it.”
“So Jake, if you’ve got the guts, come on over and do it!”
Paul and his brother Logan are known trash-talkers who have criticized a slew of celebrities in recent months, including UFC star Conor McGregor.
After his brother’s victory, the Gypsy King tweeted, “Jake Paul, where you at?” The former wasted no time in retaliating.
“He summons me to battle someone – his brother! Paul said on his Instagram story, “I had no idea he had a brother.”
