Logan Paul says Tommy Fury “made the right decision” to withdraw against brother Jake and avoid an embarrassing KO loss

LOGAN PAUL said Tommy Fury “made the right decision” not to fight his brother Jake and avoid a potentially embarrassing KO defeat.

Fury has pulled out of the Jake fight twice, first after suffering a broken rib in training and most recently amid an issue with a US visa.

But the Paul brothers cast doubt on the fight cancellations while discussing it on the Impaulsive podcast.

Logan, 27, said: “I told you, and I told you before you even started the fight with Tommy, I recognize Flake behaviour.

“And the first time he pulled out of your guys fight, that smacked of Flake behavior to me, not like some serious s***.

“And the second time you said you wanted to fight him, I like it, I like the fight, but the man just doesn’t have it.

“He doesn’t have the fire that his older brother has.”

Jake, 25, replied: “I think it hits him when the pressure builds up and the fight is actually confirmed, then he’s like, ‘Wow, I have to fight this kid.’

“And he fought against all the common people who are put there to lose. So when a real killer is against you, I think there is pressure.”

Logan said: “Regardless of whether it’s an apology or not and the fact that it happened and it’s extremely embarrassing and he kind of sullies the Fury name, I think he made the right decision.

“Because he can withdraw and anyone can tell him he’s scared and ‘You’re an asshole, you’re living in your brother’s shadow.’ What ever.

“But that’s not as bad as being cold-clocked, being knocked out by you on screen. Think about it.

“It’ll take forever, dude. This will only be a window of opportunity because in about a year people will be like, ‘Tommy, you backed out’ or whatever.”

Jake added: “It’s bad for him man. He’s a clown, but it’s smart, if we were fighting he’d KO.”

Fury’s first withdrawal came last December, leaving Paul to KO Tyron Woodley, 40, in a rematch after beating him on points four months earlier.

It contributed to wins over YouTuber “AnEsonGib”, ex-NBA star Nate Robinson, 38, and retired UFC welterweight Ben Askren, 38.

Fury, 23, was to be Paul’s first opponent with an accepted boxing record until their most recent grudge match axe.

Hasim Rahman Jr., 31, was drafted in as a substitute to fight Aug. 6 at New York’s legendary Madison Square Garden.

But a weight difference between the two forced the event to be scrapped with just a week’s notice.

As revealed by SunSport, Paul is now eyeing a boxing return in October.
