Jake Paul has responded to Tommy Fury’s most recent call out – and sensationally kept the door open to fighting in the UK.
Fury went on the MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani to implore Paul to accept a fight on British shores, claiming the pair could sell over 70,000 tickets in a football stadium.
And ‘The Problem Child,’ fresh off a decision victory over UFC legend Anderson Silva, also appeared on Helwani’s show and seemed all too willing to oblige Fury.
“Yeah, I love going to those crowds because they all boo me, and I shut them up. I like playing the role of the heel, especially in the UK.
There’s definitely interest, I think if his team is taking the financial risk and putting the event on then I’m cool. I just don’t want to take that risk because I think he’s going to back out again, most likely.
It’s an easy fight for me, the kid’s a novice, he’s never even fought anyone good, he’s never even had an eight-round fight, he doesn’t have the experience I have which is crazy to say because he’s been boxing his whole life.”
The win over Silva represented a career best performance from Paul, knocking down the 47-year-old in the final round in a fight many anticipated would be the YouTuber’s toughest to date.
A meeting with Fury has already been agreed twice, but fell through once due to the Brit picking up a rib injury and secondly when he was refused entry to the United States.
Paul has previously stated he would not be bestowing another opportunity to Fury, however these recent comments seem to indicate a change of heart.
