Jake Paul is referred to as a “cat weasel” by John Fury, who threatens to knock him out through the television screen.
At a press conference advertising his son Tommy’s fight with the YouTuber next month, John Fury got into a heated argument with Jake Paul, calling him a “cat weasel.”
At a press conference ahead of their boxing match next month, Jake Paul and Tommy Fury spat obscenities, but it was the latter’s father John who stole the show.
On December 18, Fury, the younger brother of world heavyweight champion Tyson, will face Paul in an eight-round fight at the Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida.
The couple clearly do not get along, and their social media feud over the last six months has sparked interest in a fight between them.
At a press conference prior of the bout on Wednesday, they were able to renew the verbal war, albeit with Paul participating via video link from the United States.
Fury attended the event with his brother Tyson and father John, who got into a heated argument with his son’s opponent.
When Paul told the Furys that they had a problem, they were furious “”You f****d up” by agreeing to face him, John retorted, “What did you say? So, cat weasel, what did you say? Do you believe Tommy Fury will be able to defeat Jake Paul? Please share your thoughts in the comments box below.
“You look like a character from a comic book, joke shop owner.
“Remove your spectacles so that we can see the terror in your eyes. Remove them. These eyes, mate, aren’t wearing glasses, and neither are we.” Then Paul responded: “Tommy, please keep your b*****s down for me. For the sake of me, keep your b*****s quiet.” “Shut up, you dog,” John said. Fury Sr then ordered Paul to take off his spectacles once more before springing from his seat and punching him through the television screen.
“Leave the screens out of this, John!” remarked the BT Sport host of the press conference.
Both Fury and Paul are newcomers to boxing, with the former having just fought seven times (7-0) in his professional career.
Paul, a YouTuber turned fighter, has won each of his four fights since entering the sport, most notably defeating former UFC stars Ben Askren and Tyron Woodley.
Fury, on the other hand, is expected to have a considerable advantage in Florida next month due to his superior expertise in and around boxing over the years.
