Has Jake Paul ever been one to do things quietly? The YouTube star has been running his mouth ever since he stepped foot in the rings. But the blogger-turned-boxer isn't done stirring the pot just yet. Here's what he recently revealed about the words he and the Furys have been exchanging behind the scenes.
With the #PaulFury match set to go down in December, both parties haven't exactly been shy about making their feelings known. What we didn't know, though, was that the real drama was going down in the DMs. "We’re going back and forth in the DMs right now, me and Tyson, sending each other voice messages, which is pretty funny," Paul recently revealed to TMZ.
Safe to say, the rivals won't be hugging it out anytime soon. "I’m calling his brother a squid, he’s saying, ‘He’s gonna annihilate you Jakey boy,'" Paul revealed of his words with boxing champ Tyson Fury. But don't get it twisted - as far as the YouTuber's concerned, he's only got beef with 1 Fury: "Tyson, I love – I wanna make that clear for everybody. Unfortunately, I have to end his brother’s career," Paul shaded.
While we'll have to wait until December 18 to see if his words hold up, the grudge match is bound to be one for the books regardless. Not to mention, the stakes have actually never been higher. Well, at least according to Mr. Paul, who's been mocking Fury for quit some time now. "He's a silly man because believe me, like Jake Paul is saying, if Tommy lost to Jake Paul, he would have to change his name to 'Tommy Fumbles,'" John Fury Sr. revealed.
Call it a hunch, but something tells us that bet won't hold up - regardless of the match's outcome. Make sure to catch the heated fight when #PaulFury goes down at Tampa Bay's Amalie Arena in a matter of weeks. (Whether your money's on TNT or the YouTube wild-card, you won't want to miss this one....)
Until then, stay tuned.
