Tommy Fury texts Jake Paul: “I’m not hard to find, get in touch!” | boxing news

Tommy Fury has issued a ‘Do you want it? Come get the message to Jake Paul as the Brit continues to be linked to a long-publicized feud with the YouTuber-turned-boxer.

Fury, who faces Daniel Bocianksi (10-1) on the undercard of Tyson Fury’s world title defense against Dillian Whyte this Saturday, was due to face Paul in December before being forced to withdraw two weeks from the event due to a bacterium. chest infection and broken rib.

Paul subsequently fought Tyron Woodley, recording a sixth-round knockout victory in his rematch with the former UFC welterweight champion.

The 22-year-old has now put the ball in Paul’s court when it comes to a rescheduled fixture, and insists his focus is on the most “credible” challenge presented by his next Wembley opponent.

“I’m just fixed on Saturday night, I don’t care what Jake Paul says, he can’t get my name out of his mouth right now,” Fury told Sky Sports.

“First he doesn’t want to fight me, then I’m a potential opponent, then he wants to see me get a knockout to start the fight, I don’t know what he’s thinking, but in my mind all I’m thinking about is Saturday night.

“In terms of Jake Paul, don’t mention my name unless you want to fight, it’s as simple as that.

“I’m not hard to find, get in touch, let’s work things out and move on. I’m not even going to get into that right now, my mindset is Saturday night.”

“I have a much more credible opponent that I’m going to face on Saturday night than I would face Jake Paul.”

Tyson Fury and Dillian Whyte square off at Wembley ahead of their world title fight at the weekend. Fury and Whyte keep their cool as their respective entourages get too close.

Fury is fighting for the first time since firing Anthony Taylor via unanimous decision last August to improve to 7-0 as a pro.

With its continued development, more potential opponents besides Paul have emerged, including undefeated cruiserweight Viddal Riley.

“I don’t really care who it is, I have a good team around me, that’s what a team is for, to pick and guide fights,” Fury said.

“I’m sure my father and everyone around me on my team will pick the right fights for me.

“I have nothing to say about the opponents, I just train, show up on the day, put on weight and fight.”

Fury admits that if it were up to him, he’d be back in the ring on a monthly basis, but says “we all know that’s not going to happen.”

He tells Sky Sports that his ideal plan would be to fight “three or four” times in 2022.

Tyson Fury says he and Dillian Whyte are ready to ‘rock and roll’ ahead of their WBC heavyweight championship fight at Wembley on Saturday night.

A European record capacity of 94,000 awaits at Wembley this weekend, and while Fury finds himself part of a historic night of British boxing, he is under no illusions about where he is in his young career and where he can go.

“I feel like I’ve made leaps and bounds in the gym day to day, it’s just about taking it slow, having the right fights at the right time and building slowly,” he explained.

“I am 22 years old, I have only had seven professional fights and 10 amateur fights, it is not much to work with, but we are making it work.

“Saturday night is just another step in this journey and you will see a new and improved Tommy Fury.

“I know I keep saying it, but it’s true because I’m not happy with the last two performances and I’m going out on Saturday to make a statement and box like I know I can box.”

Dillian Whyte reveals that she was not surprised by Tyson Fury’s respectful performance at his press conference ahead of their WBC heavyweight title fight.

At the root of his first step up from the amateur ranks was a belief within his team that the Manchester fighter was more stylistically equipped for the professional game.

That position has not changed, nor, yes, does it have self-recognition of its room for improvement.

“Out of amateur and pro, definitely pro suited me better. Pro is better for me, you can sit on your shots, it’s a longer distance so you can get into your grove.

“I’m excited to be on this journey and learn every step of the way.

“I have a credible opponent on Saturday who is 10-1, he’s coming to fight, that’s something a lot of my opponents haven’t come to do, but you’ve seen the ones who have come to fight.” I got out of there.”

Tyson Fury looked in good spirits as he warmed up for the crowd at the Fury vs Whyte open workout.

“I’ve seen every fight available to watch it,” Fury said.

“But at the end of the day, on Saturday night, it’s not about what he does well, it’s about what I do well, it’s about what I do on Saturday.”

“I don’t care what I’m going to do, I’m just going to box, how I’m going to box, what I’ve been doing for the last 15 weeks of training.”

It’s occasions like this that make it all worthwhile.

“I’m super excited, you can’t get a bigger stage than this, 94,000 sold out Wembley, it doesn’t get any bigger than this.

“I’m excited to be on the bill, I’m excited to put on a performance for all the fans that will be there and it’s going to be a good night of boxing.

“That’s why we all train so hard, why we go through the grueling camps, on nights like this.

“It’s been a tough camp, it’s been a long camp, I’m ready to put everything I’ve done in camp on Saturday night.”
