‘It needs to be put to bed’ – Tommy Fury predicts fourth-round KO of Jake Paul and backs pair to sell out Wembley

TOMMY FURY is ready to put his rivalry with Jake Paul to bed with a Wembley sellout.

The celebrity boxing rivals have agreed to put bragging right and records on the line at the third time of asking.

And Fury said it is time to settle the score once and for all with talks between the two camps underway.

He told TMZ Sports: “I want this fight more than anything because it’s a chance for me to put everything that I’ve been hearing for the past two years to bed.

“And it needs to be put to bed because at the end of the day this man is not in my class, he’s not in my league, and he’s a YouTube fighter, that’s what this man is.

“I am a proper fighter, from a fighting family. I’ve got aspirations of winning world titles.”

Paul, 25, most recently beat UFC legend Anderson Silva, 47, in October, the biggest win in his 6-0 career.

Meanwhile Fury, 23, returned last weekend in Dubai in a last-minute exhibition bout against replacement Rolly Lambert, 33.

American Paul Bamba, 33, was withdrawn on the day amid a weight disagreement and Paul was a special guest commentator on the night.

After Fury cruised past six rounds, the two clashed post-fight and an agreement to fight in February was struck.


The 2019 Love Islander has twice pulled out against Paul in the past, firstly due to a rib injury and then amid a US visa issue which still persists.

So the American has agreed to cross enemy territory to commence battle – so long as a signed contract is returned within seven days.

Meanwhile Fury has called for the fight to take place at Wembley stadium, which has a capacity over almost 100,000.

He said: “I feel like this fight is a Wembley fight. I feel like it would do 80,000 very comfortably.

“If you asked anybody walking down the street on Saturday night, ‘Do you want to watch Jake Paul versus Tommy Fury at Wembley?’


“Everybody is going to say yes, I believe it is a massive, massive pay-per-view event.

“It’s a massive event itself in the UK, because both of us are very well known.

“Obviously, Jake’s known very well in the UK, most of my fanbase is in the UK.

“So I think it’s a bigger seller over there and my team will work endlessly to get the best arena/stadium for that fight.”

Opposing teams are now locked in talks and Fury predicted he will make easy work of Paul.

He said: “This fight does not go the distance. There’s no chance in hell cause I won’t let it go to the distance.

“I am not gonna get in the ring and look to outpoint Jake Paul. I’m gonna be in that ring looking to take his head off with every punch.

“I can’t see it going past four rounds. I can’t.”
