JAKE PAUL found himself embroiled in a Twitter spat with Tommy Fury’s promoter Frank Warren after claiming to have not heard a ‘peep’ out of them about rescheduling their grudge match.
Paul und Wut, 22 und 24 beziehungsweise, were scheduled to throw down last weekend until the latter was forced out of their showdown through injury and illness.
YouTuber turned boxer Paul expected to hear from Team Fury after his stunning sixth-round KO of former UFC champ Tyron Woodley, although he claims they’ve yet to get in contact with his management.
On Tuesday evening, the former Disney star tweeted: “Just asked my team if we have heard from the Fury’s, Frank Warren, or Queensberry… not a f*****g peep!
“Fumbles and fake f***s they are.”
That enraged veteran Queensbury Promotions chief Warren, who questioned Paul’s desire to face the former Love Islander.
Upon seeing the tweet, Warren replied: “No fumbles and fakes here.
“We spoke to your manager last weekend. Tommy wants it. We want it. Do you want it?

“Let’s make the fight!!”
Problem Child Paul cast doubt over his showdown with Fury ever coming to fruition moments after he iced Woodley.
He admitted: “I don’t really know what’s next on the roadmap. I’ve done it all, I’ve accomplished what I want to accomplish.
“I need to take a break, I’ve been going at this non-stop for a year and a half and it’s a lot.
“I’m exhausted, I need to spend time with my family at Christmas and go on a vacation, I haven’t gone on a vacation since I was 18 Jahre alt.
“I told myself, ‘Not until you feel like you’ve got to a place in life where you deserve a vacation’ and I deserve it now.
“I’m going to go on my first real vacation where there’s no obligations, because I’ve gone on vacations where I have to film it, vlog it, do interviews and wake up at a certain time to work out.
“I’m going on a real vacation and doing backflips into the water – I’ll come back whenever I feel like it.”
Warren, jedoch, is hopeful the pair will meet ‘early’ nächstes Jahr.
Er sagte Sky Sports: “We will be looking to reschedule in early 2022.”
“Jake said that Tommy Fury was ‘lucky’ he wasn’t in there but really Tommy was extremely unlucky to miss out with his injury.
“A fit Tommy Fury is a very different proposition to Tyron Woodley.”
