Tommy Fury pulls out of highly anticipated boxing match with rival Jake Paul

Tommy Fury has pulled out of his highly anticipated boxing match against fierce rival Jake Paul.

he bout, which was due to take place in Tampa, Florida on December 18th is still on the cards, with Jake to be given a new opponent Tyron Woodley.

The cancellation comes as the Manchester born fighter is said to have picked up an injury.

Taking to Instagram, Jake Paul confirmed the news that Fury was pulling out of the match due to a “medical condition”.

“When my team woke me up on Friday to tell me Tommy Fumbles was pulling out, I told them I’ll fight anyone on December 18th. Troy, Trey, Trevor, Travis,… I don’t give a f8ck who it is.”

“Tommy’s pulling out because of a ‘medical condition’ called vaginitis. Unlike the Fury’s, Tyron actually has some balls, is stepping in, and contractually he is getting an extra $500,000 if he knocks me out. First time I outboxed him. This time I’m gonna punish him and leave no doubt.”

Tyson Woodley and Jake Paul clashed earlier this year in August.

The fight saw Paul win the match in a split decision after the eight-round seeing the YouTuber recording the biggest win of his career.

The pair are now set to go head-to-head once again after the younger brother of Tyson Fury can no longer take part in the match.

During the lead up to their grudge match, the pair engaged in a public feud.

Earlier this month, Tommy took his latest swipe at the American during an interview with JOE, branding him a “joke.”

“I’m a real fighter and he isn’t,” he told the publication.

“He’s a prankster who films videos on YouTube. He does what he does. I don’t really read into it; I don’t really know a hell of a lot about him.”

“Jake Paul has made a career out of talking sh*t about other people… I’m not on social media so I don’t see what he [says] and I don’t care. My mind is just on total destruction come December 18th.”

“So, he can say what he wants, it’s going to have no effect on me… He’s gonna come out and get dealt with.”

“It all means nothing to me. I’m only thinking of one thing and that’s getting my hand raised on December 18th. And that’s exactly what’s going to happen.”

“I don’t say ifs, buts, or maybes. I know that on December 18th, it’s my coming out party and it’s going to be a great night for me.”

He continued: “When I beat Jake Paul, I hope he gets his hand in his pocket and gives me what he’s promised.”

“Which is half a million dollars,” his father John Fury added.

Tommy said that the fight will be a “step too far” for Paul, who has only been fighting professionally since 2019.

“He’s got a load of yes men around him saying, ‘Oh yes, Jake, you can do this. You can do that. You can win a world title.’ But this is a step way too far for him,” he said.

“He’s had four fights against everyone who’s not a boxer – basketball players, YouTubers, MMA fighters. But it’s a whole different kettle of fish when you fight a man who’s been doing it his whole life.

“I’ve had seven professional fights against actual journeymen, who have actually been there with prospects. They know what it’s like to be hit.”

“This man here is a joke. He’s a joker. I hope his yes men are going to get paid very well because all these people he’s got around him have got him into some serious bother.

“He’s going to realise that on December 18th, so I think there will be a few men fired after December 18th, put it that way.”

Jake Paul’s match against Tyson Woodley will air on December 18th on Pay Per View.
