Jake Paul’s back-up plan confirmed for Tommy Fury fight

Tommy Fury has been warned that he is risking his reputation and his future in the sport if he loses to YouTuber-turned-boxer Jake Paul.

The pair have been involved in some high-profile verbal exchanges in recent months, with the undefeated American targeting the younger brother of world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury as his next opponent.

After shooting to fame on ITV reality dating show Love Island, Tommy is now focussed on his professional boxing career.

The 22-year-old has won his first seven bouts, the most recent coming in his first fight outside of the UK – a victory by unanimous decision over the American Anthony Taylor in Ohio at the end of August.

Despite that promising start to his career, fellow pro Chris Eubank Jr has warned his fellow Briton that he runs the risk of ending his career before it really begins if he agrees to face Paul, as the damage to his reputation that would come with a defeat could be catastrophic.

“If he loses that then he’s done. You might as well stop before he’s even really got started,” Eubank Jr told talkSPORT.

“You can’t start your career off losing to a YouTuber. It will be interesting to see.”

What do you think would happen in a fight between Tommy Fury and Jake Paul? Let us know in the comments section.

Fury and Paul are said to be close to agreeing a date for their hotly anticipated fight in December.

Promoter Frank Warren confirmed earlier this week that the two sides are in discussions over the bout, with a deal almost in place.

“It’s very close, I’m just hoping we can get it over the line. As I say, we’ve all been working very hard to make it happen,” Warren said.

However, Tommy’s father John Fury, himself a former boxer, has blamed the delay in getting the deal done on the “greedy” American Paul, who he said was holding up negotiations with his financial demands.

“We’re nearly there with the business side of it with Jake Paul, they’re being greedy, but like I say, we know our worth, we want as much as we can out of this job,” he said.

Fury Snr went on to say, though, that he was certain that a fight between the pair would happen.

“But we’re nearly there, this fight is going to happen, we’re 99.9 per cent of the way there,” he added.

“It’s almost done, we’ve just got a few Ts to cross and Is to dot and we’re nearly there over the line, but it will happen. Will Tommy beat Jake Paul? Absolutely.”
