Tommy Fury sent a message to Jake Paul at the press conference for his undercard fight against Daniel Bocianski of Poland at Wembley. The 22-year-old was due to fight American YouTuber Jake Paul in December in his last fight but pulled out due to a chest infection and cracked ribs.
Fury may have missed out on that fight but was in good spirits at Wembley, calling Paul out for another fight, saying that he would need no training before stepping into the ring with the 25-year-old.
The former Love Island contestant explained at Wednesday’s press conference: “I’m ready whenever because I don’t need a training camp for him – it’s very unfortunate what happened to me in December because if December had gone through you wouldn’t be hearing his name ever again in boxing because he is useless.

“He cannot fight and there is no chance in hell he beats me and I do not even need to train for him, so let me get Saturday out of the way and put on a massive performance with a great knockout, which I’m planning on doing.
“When I’m on the couch eating pizzas, burgers and donuts – what I love to do – let him give me a call and I’ll be there the next day because I do not need to train for him.”
However, Fury did explain that he would try not to let the ongoing war of words between him and Paul distract from the task at hand on Saturday night, he said: “I don’t let anything come into my mind to disrupt what I’ m going to do on Saturday night – Jake Paul has not come into my mind once.
“I hear all this talk about him saying ‘oh, he doesn’t fancy the fight anymore’ – get your facts straight before you speak my name and if you want to fight let’s get on and do it.”
Jake Paul’s last opponent was UFC star Tyron Woodley, knocking out the 40-year-old American, and Fury was quick to criticize the star, saying that he cannot fight: “This man can’t fight – that’s why he’s dodging everybody, that’s why he’s fighting 60-year-old UFC fighters that nobody wants to see because he only got very low PPV numbers last time”
“If he wants the big numbers he knows where to come, but until then don’t talk if you don’t want to fight.
“I’m not interested in what Jake Paul does, it’s easy to get a knockout against someone who’s over the hill at 45-years-old in Tyron Woodley – it’s easy to knock him out if he doesn’t move his head or throw to punch”
Fury’s opponent Bocianski has lost just one of his fights and comes up against Fury who will look to hold onto his 7-0 record against the Pole, with Fury emphasizing the difference in quality between him and the 27-year-old from Chelmec in Poland .
“I’ve got a live opponent coming over, he’s young, I think he’s 27 and is 10-0-1 – he’s coming for a fight and he’s an actual boxer. These guys that Jake Paul is fighting are not boxers”, he added, “This guy that I’m fighting on Saturday night would wipe the floor with Jake Paul”
