Tommy Fury has taken to social media to continue a rivalry that seems will only be ended between the ropes.
Addressing Jake Paul on Instagram, the undefeated light heavyweight once again called for the long-discussed fight between the pair to take place.
“A certain somebody can’t keep my name out their mouth. He’s got me in his Instagram bio, he’s doing tweets about me, and he’s even put Amanda Serrano on the Joe Joyce and Joe Parker bill next month in Manchester knowing full well that I’ll be there.”
“I see he’s put out that he’s fighting in October at 185lbs. I’ve already been training, I’m f*****g ready for October. 185lbs is my fighting weight. If you want this dust settled once and for all, get yourself over here and let’s get it on.”
There’s no excuses here, no one’s afraid to fight you. Get in touch – you pick the date, the venue – I’m not bothered.”

Fury’s last outing saw him beat Daniel Bocianski on points. Illness, injury and legal travel restrictions have so far prevented the bout with Jake Paul taking place, despite it coming very close.
Paul, who recently pulled a fight with Hasim Rahman Jr over a weight dispute, is looking to build on a career that is yet to see him fight a professional boxer with a record. Tommy, half-brother of heavyweight champ Tyson Fury, seems to have the hype and the experience to fill that role.
As Fury mentions, Amanda Serrano travelling to the UK to fight on an upcoming Queensbury card could mean progress. Serrano, current featherweight champion, is managed and promoted by Paul’s outfit, Most Valuable Promotions.
Could Fury and Paul take their bickering off social media and come face-to-face that night in anticipation for a scrap that seems destined to happen?
