This Sunday Jake Paul will face his toughest test since becoming a professional boxer, as he faces 8-0 British prospect, Tommy Fury.
After months of online back-and-forth, the tension was high as the two faced off at the public weigh-in. After lots of verbals, Fury pushed Paul in the chest leading to the pair having to be separated, and the American knows why Fury suddenly flipped.

From making ‘all or nothing’ bets to announcing the birth of his opponents child, Paul has began to establish himself as a master of mind games, however it is for neither of these reasons why Fury got physical at the weigh-in.
In a clip shared by Top Rank, ‘The Problem Child’ laughed with his brother, Logan, that Fury reacted because he was ‘bean-dipped’.
Although the phrase will be uncommon to UK fans, Urban Dictionary explains that a ‘bean-dip’ is to ‘flick a woman’s (or man’s) breast with the index finger’.

“I go ‘bean-dip’ [flicks finger] and he pushed me.
He is all like trying to be scary and I’m like, ‘bean-dip’,”
Finally it’s time for the talking and games to stop and the feud to be settled in the ring.
Although Paul is the more famous of the two, a lot of people feel that Fury is the one under more pressure as he heads into the bout. Fury’s family members, including his father John and brother Tyson, have told him to “remain in Saudi Arabia” if he can’t defeat ‘The Problem Child.’
Paul and Fury will step between thee ropes this Sunday, with the main card expected to take place around 7pm (GMT) and ringwalks for the main event scheduled around 10pm (GMT).
