Tommy Fury has nevertheless dismissed Jake Paul as an “easy” opponent still anxious for their ill-fated fight to be rearranged.
the island of love Star, a 7-0 professional boxer and brother of world heavyweight champion Tyson, was scheduled to face YouTuber Paul 5-0 in Florida last December. But when Fury broke his rib during practice, the fight was canceled and Paul instead faced former UFC champion Tyron Woodley, who knocked him out in six rounds
Now Fury has said Paul would be an “easy” fight, arguing his upcoming return opponent Daniel Bocianski would comfortably win against the fighter-turned YouTuber. He said the Queensberry Promotions YouTube channel l: “Whenever I am asked about it Jake-PaulI don’t know, it doesn’t really spring into me because it’s an easy fight for me.
“I’m used to fighting guys who are hungry and used to putting their lives on the line when the going gets tough, when Jake Paul is in a tough fight you’ll see him on the Knie goes and doesn’t move on because that’s the type of man he is. If he fights me, that’s what’s going to happen.
“This man I’m about to fight would iron out Jake Paul easily. Because this man probably has a family to support, this is his only way to make money, he probably has to make the money.”
Fury will fight Bocianski, just the second of his eight opponents, who will have a 10-1 win record, on the undercard of his brother’s mandatory title defense Dillian Whyte. The event takes place in front of a record-breaking capacity of 94,000 people at Wembley Stadium, with the boxer insisting it’s a much bigger event than anything Paul has attended before.

“Listen, Jake Paul can do whatever he wants at the end of the day,” Fury continued. “I fight on this map and this map is way, way bigger than anything Jake Paul has ever done in his boxing career.
“You couldn’t even compare the two; Wembley and Jake Paul are two different things. I’m here in this fight to put on a spectacular performance, a very gratifying performance and, you know, whatever comes next, comes next.
“Whether he wants to fight back this fight, whether he’s found his balls or not, I don’t know. I’m just concentrating on April 23 and getting rid of my opponent.”
Fury has called for the fight with Paul to be postponed on more than one occasion, but so far it seems the social media star isn’t interested. He is planning a return in August, which the Brit is not opposed to should he emerge safely from his fight later this month.
