Tommy Fury reveals Molly-Mae and baby Bambi are the reason he took Jake Paul grudge match as Saudi Arabia showdown draws near
TOMMY FURY revealed his girlfriend Molly-Mae and baby Bambi are the reasons he accepted his grudge fight with Jake Paul.
Fury and Paul are finally ready to settle their scores in the ring on February 26 in Saudi Arabia.
The pay-per-view fight comes just a month after the 2019 Love Islander welcomed baby daughter Bambi into the world with Molly-Mae.
And in an interview with Rob Moore ahead of the birth of his baby, Fury admitted the mega money fight with Paul was too good to turn down.
He said: “I’ve earned my stripes. But if you want to shell out millions of pounds to fight Jake Paul, why won’t I?
“I have a family to support every day — the reason I took on the Jake Paul fight is because it’s good financially.”
Fury, 23, will finally get his hands on Paul, 26, having previously been forced to withdraw against the American twice.
He suffered a rib injury in December 2021 and then U.S. visa issues last August that have taken the two to the Middle East.
Both will pick up life-changing checks for their duel in the desert, but Fury realizes there’s more at stake than just money.
Fury added: “He can’t get under my skin because I know what he’s doing.

“He’s a whiz on social media, he made a living being an idiot, arrogant and challenging people. It is what it is, but he can’t get under my skin.
“All I see with Jake Paul is a deal and if you want me to take down a man who can’t fight and throw millions of pounds in my face, no problem sign me up and that’s about it it here.
“I’ve been describing it all along as being on Route 66 and I have to pull up in my RV, fill up the gas and get back on the road.
“I’m on a straight and narrow path to world titles. But you want me to take a little detour for a bunch of gas, pick that up, and then hop back on the road?
“That’s exactly what I’m doing here at the end of the day. This is a business; you have to use your head and any fighter in my position would take this fight if offered.”
