Tommy Fury has rubbished claims by Jake Paul that he’s pulling out of their rescheduled fight, saying he’ll see the American YouTuber on August 6.
The pair were due to lock horns in December 2021, however, Fury was forced to withdraw through illness.
It was revealed the bout would be rescheduled for the summer, with August 13 a date being touted.
However, Fury says it will take place on August 6 as he rubbished a social media tirade from Paul, who accused Tyson Fury’s brother of pulling out for a second time.
Paul tweeted: “Tommy Fury, you pulled out last year. Then you agree to fight me now but your dad is trying to pull you out again?
“We’ve given you everything you asked for — $2 million purse, VADA testing, tampons. You have 24 hours to clear this up or I will never give you this opportunity again.”
Fury responded: “See you August 6th pal.”
Paul continued in a video posted on his Twitter: “What’s the excuse? ‘Oh I can’t come and I can’t do it because my dad can’t be there with me during the fight.’”
“Tommy, your dad has been banned from the United States for 15 years. You’ve known this the whole entire time. He’s a criminal. He’s not allowed in.
“When you fought Anthony Taylor in Cleveland, neither Tyson [Fury] or your dad were there with you in your U.S. debut. Now all of a sudden you need your team with you? That doesn’t make any f****** sense.
“You’re scared. You claim you’re a professional boxer but you don’t want to make the fight with me? Who you’ve talked so much s*** about? Who you say you will spark? Who you say I’m nothing compared to you?
“Where’s all that s*** talk now, Tommy? You’re a f****** atypical professional boxer who doesn’t want to actually make this fight f****** happen.
“This is the biggest opportunity of your f****** life and you’re fumbling the f****** bag once again and I can’t believe how f****** stupid you are. F****** idiot.”
And Fury responded: “The fight is on. August 6th.
“Forget a team or any other bull****. I don’t need anybody to help me lay you flat on that canvas.
“Oh and thanks for finally signing the drug testing… you only agreed to it when you realised the fight was at risk – who needs who?”
