Jake Paul has issued Tommy Fury with a ‘final offer’ of $1m to take a fight with the American YouTube star. Fury has no intention of accepting it.
Paul is on a high following his most recent win over former UFC champion Tyron Woodley. He now seems to think he could beat any fighter on the planet.
Next in line for a payday from Paul is Tommy Fury, brother of Tyson. The early stages of Fury’s professional boxing career have been somewhat promising.
However, Paul has taken to Twitter to claim that Fury has rejected TWO offers from his team. He’s put a final $1m proposal on the table for Fury.
Tommy “Fury” has denied 2 abundant offers from my team.
Timmy “Fury”…. this is your last offer… $1 million, 8 rounds. 4x more than you have ever made.
Either step up and fight OR accept that you and your Dad don’t believe in you @tommytntfury.

Fury is not particularly impressed by that offer and doesn’t appear to have any intention of accepting it, as he revealed via his Instagram story.
“To everybody out there, $1 million for a fight of this magnitude is not even worth getting out of bed for, this fight is going to gross millions and millions of pounds.”
“I cannot walk down the street without anybody asking me when are you fighting Jake Paul, so until you want to make a serious offer and put it on the table, we can’t think about fighting pal.”
It’s in the interest of both fighters to come to a resolution, with the hype around this bout building with every social media spat that the pair have.
Let’s see whether Paul will return with a fourth offer that aligns with Fury’s expectations.
