Jake Paul reacts to Tommy Fury victory by mentioning another possible opponent

Tommy Fury returned to the ring with a career-best performance on April 23, but Jake Paul has claimed that he’s not committed to rescheduling their fight.

The YouTube star annihilated Tyron Woodley with a devastating right hand in a Christmas boxing extravaganza. However, despite the dramatic finish, that wasn’t the fight fans hoped to see. Paul was originally training for a monstrous match-up with the brother of ‘The Gypsy King’.

But after some incredibly entertaining press conferences, disaster struck. Fury broke his rib in sparring and had no choice but to pull out. And although combat sports enthusiasts still want to see the bout, the ex-Disney star has little interest in bowing to their demands.

After several months of inactivity, the Brit returned to the ring on the undercard of Tyson Fury vs Dillian Whyte. Fury collided with Daniel Bocianski (10-1) and expected a stern test. But in an improved showing, he dropped his opponent en route to a decision victory.

Tommy Fury wants Jake Paul

However, despite winning the contest conclusively, he instantly switched his attention to his arch-nemesis.

In his post-fight interview, he said: “If you want it, I’m here and ready for you, and I’ll cut you and chop you to bits just like I did there. Get the contract signed, you bum. Let’s get it done once and for all. That lad in there (Bocianski) would kill Jake Paul on the spot. That lad’s a true professional.

“He was cut to bits and still in there giving me everything he had. He’d slap Jake Paul all over. Jake Paul, I’m gonna end your career. You’re a bum, and you’re no good. Let’s get this fight on, and let’s get this dust settled.”

But, although he won impressively, it might not be enough to get him the fight he wants.

Jake Paul dismisses Tommy Fury call out

In the aftermath of Fury’s victory, esteemed journalist Ariel Helwani spoke to the controversial American about his opinion on his rival’s performance.

He said: “Congrats on beating a 10-1 fighter. But that stadium was empty. When I fight, the stadium is full. When Tommy fights, no one gives a f**k. And that’s in his home country. Let’s see how Anderson Silva’s event does.”

It appears Paul is now looking in the direction of UFC legend Anderson Silva. The 47-year-old has looked good since transitioning to the world of boxing. On June 19, he defeated former World Champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr in a huge upset.

The Brazilian is set to return to the ring against Bruno Azerdo on May 14 on the undercard of Floyd Mayweather vs Don Moore. And if he impresses on the roof of the Burj Al Arab, he might beat Fury to the biggest payday of his life.
