Tommy Fury is unable to fight Jake Paul because he has spent the last two months ‘partying hard’ with brother Tyson, his former opponent Anthony ‘Pretty Boy’ Taylor has claimed.

Fury and Paul were scheduled to meet in Florida on 18 December but the Briton has been forced to withdraw from that contest due to a rib injury and a chest infection.

The former Love Island star has also shared X-rays of the ‘multiple fractures’ he suffered in sparring.

Taylor is sceptical, however. The former MMA fighter who fought Fury in August says the 22-year-old is in ‘no condition’ to fight, claiming he has been out celebrating Tyson’s October win over Deontay Wilder having assumed his meeting with Paul would not take place until 2022.

‘The real reason he’s out of this fight isn’t because of some injury, it’s because of his physical conditioning,’ Taylor told the Betway Insider blog.

‘He was so busy partying with his brother after Tyson won that fight, that he’s now in no good condition to fight.

‘Tommy also originally thought was fighting in February, so he’s now in no condition to fight.

‘Tommy is still green at this moment. And he’s still young. Jake is in the gym all the time, while Tommy’s was probably out still celebrating.

‘Tommy did not have a really full train camp for this. He thought he was guaranteed the win because he’s from a fighting family. But let me tell you, if this fight with Jake ever does get made, Tommy is in for a rude awakening!’

Taylor has also taken aim at Tommy Fury’s father John, insisting Fury Snr should have ordered his son to ‘suck it up’.

‘It was big John Fury’s decision to pull Tommy out – Big John’s the head trainer and he decides whether Tommy fights or not.

‘I can’t believe it. Big John should have told Tommy to suck it up.

‘You’ve got someone like Deontay Wilder, who three weeks before his fight had his daughter going through surgery; there are people fighting all the time with broken hands before a fight, we don’t see or hear them here complaining like Tommy is.’
