Jake Paul’s promotional outfit Most Valuable Promotions have responded to claims made by Tommy Fury that his side has received no response regarding the proposed influencer mega fight. MVP affirm that they have been in ‘daily contact’ with Frank Warren, Robert Davis, and George Warren – who all represent Fury.
The latest twist comes after Paul set Fury’s team a seven-day deadline to secure their long-awaited grudge match after two failed attempts to make the fight happen. The Problem Child accepted Fury’s demands of a February date in the United Kingdom but isn’t willing to waste time negotiating the deal considering the fight’s history.
Taking to social media, he wrote: “Dear Frank Warren, I agree to fight Tommy in Manchester or London in Feb. I’ll come to his country, no more running. His baby is due then & you’ve said it’s no issue. Since John is adamant we’ve agreed, I am giving u (sic) 7 days to present a signed contract by Tommy or I’m moving on.”
Now, Fury has made claims that Paul’s side have not been in contact with his team. “NO RESPONSE to my team from @jakepaul in regards to sorting contracts for this fight. My last tweet until I have some communication from your side,” Fury tweeted.
That was until two weeks ago when Paul and Fury got into a ringside altercation after the ex-Love Island stars’ exhibition bout with Rolly Lambert on the Floyd Mayweather vs Deji Olatunji bill at the Coca-Cola Arena in Dubai. Throughout the lacklustre display, Paul – who was brought in as a guest commentator for the fight – began hurling insults at Fury which received an angry response from Tyson Fury’s brother post-fight.
After Paul denied Fury’s invitation to join him in the ring to set up their next fight, the frustrated Mancunian boiled over and attempted to jump out of the ring and attack the American. It was just enough spice to reignite the rivalry and now they look to be in negotiations to try and make it happen for a third time.
