Swiftly after Jake Paul lost a split decision to Tommy Fury following their clash in February of last year, he announced he was going to push for a rematch.
At the time he revealed he had a clause in the contract that he intended to exercise, saying ‘We can run it back. I think we deserve that.’
It was a scrappy eight-round bout in Saudi Arabia and the first time Paul fought a legitimate boxer. He did well to compete throughout and even managed to knock Fury down with a left hook but did no lasting damage.
Paul has now been on X to post a message saying he has sent contracts out to two potential opponents and awaits and answer to see who he will fight next live on DAZN in March.
“My team sent out two contracts today. Let’s see which of the two potential opponents accepts first. Saturday March 2nd. Puerto Rico. Live on DAZN.”
One reply asked if Tommy Fury was one of those to have been sent an offer and Paul confirmed that he had, but that his foe has not responded.
“He got an offer 3 weeks ago. Been mum since.”
He got an offer 3 weeks ago. Been mum since.

There had been talk of Tommy Fury fighting Roy Jones Jr, but with that off the table according to his father and trainer John, the Paul rematch may be one of the most lucrative options for the Brit.
Paul returns on March 2 on the undercard of Amanda Serrano-Nina Meinke in Puerto Rico with an opponent yet to be announced.
