It was not long before influencer-turned-boxer heard wind of the Tyson tweet and hit back at the boxing brothers.
'I I wake up and see Tyson Fury, the heavyweight champ, tweets me and he was talking s*t about Canelo too, saying it was boring or like no one was watching and I was laughing along with it,’ Paul said.
Jake Paul continued ‘Then I get to the bottom of the tweet and I see that he calls me out to fight someone and the tweet’s about his brother, and I’m like, “I didn’t even know he had a bro.”’
The YouTuber star added "I like Tyson Fury, I don’t want beef with Tyson Fury but damn, if Tyson Fury took a sh*t it would be this little brother he’s literally like this little kid."
Further explaining his thoughts, Paul said "But my point is here, you’re Tyson Fury’s little brother, if you want to fight me, don’t let your big bro do sh*t for you, log on to Instagram and Twitter and call me out for yourself, bro. What’s going on in this boxing world."
On Tuesday morning (Mar 2) Tommy Fury responded to Jake Paul's comments, saying doesn’t ‘need anybody to do [his] dirty work.’
‘So, I see somebody is having a little bit of something to say,’ Tommy said.
‘Mr Jake Paul, I don’t need anybody to do my dirty work, I’m calling you out myself right now. You can fight me any time, any place, anywhere. All you’ve got to do is get in touch.’
The fight has not yet been confirmed. However, fans are expecting to see the pair have a boxing match in the near future.
