Jake Paul may have issued a ‘Termination notice’ to Tommy Fury yesterday but ‘The Problem Child’ now wants his social media sparring partner to accept an offer for a UK fight.
Fury had until yesterday to fix the issues which barred him from entering the USA to attend a press conference last week for his August 6 bout against Paul. The YouTube star had enough come deadline day and moved on to replace the British Light Heavyweight with Hasim Rahman Jr for the Showtime Pay-Per-View bout at Madison Square Garden, New York.
Yesterday on Instagram Fury said he was ‘gutted and disappointed’ regarding the problems he was having trying to cross the pond. Paul though appears to have thrown him a lifeline and tweeted out a suggestion today for the Reality TV star to consider.
“I’m confident you are a scared little boy who doesn’t want to fight or understand business. I will pay you $500K to fight me in the UK. I will do it shortly after August 6. You accept?”

No doubt in the coming hours Mr Fury will have a response for his rival.
Meanwhile footage has emerged online of Paul and Rahman Jr sparring each other in the past. And while it is only a ten-second clip the YouTuber lands a thudding right hand to the son of former World Heavyweight Champion Hasim Rahman Sr:
