Jake Paul at odds with Tommy Fury after accusing the rival of being ‘FEAR’ to show up for press conference in Saudi Arabia
JAKE PAUL is embroiled in a row with Tommy Fury after accusing him of being ‘FEAR’ to appear for a press conference.
The celebrity boxing rivals have announced the latest postponement of their grudge fight on February 26 in Saudi Arabia.
They met for the first time officially at Wembley Arena last weekend to confirm the fight.
But Paul claimed the two would face each other again in Saudi Arabia to start their promotion – but Fury plans not to appear.
He tweeted: “Tommy Fury is scared.
“I have told my team that he cannot come to the kick-off press conference next week in Saudi Arabia because he needs more time to train.
“Thought you said you didn’t even have to train to fight me? You and your dad are scared.”
But Fury hit back: “The press conference can wait until I get to Saudi Arabia you fool.
“I’ll be there on the 16th. 3 weeks and it’s over you big stiff sweaty goth.”
Paul, 26, is currently training in Dubai for the fight, which takes place 700 miles away.

And he gave fans a glimpse of his training as he juggled while vowing to knock out Fury.

“I’m the best boxer in the world, baby. I, Jake Paul, will knock out, defeat and embarrass Tommy Fury live in Saudi Arabia on February 26th.”
