Tommy Fury has allegedly pulled out of his bout with YouTube sensation Jake Paul a little more than 10 days before the pair were planned to meet inside the squared circle.
Fierceness and Paul have assembled a remarkable contention as of late and months, one that was relied upon to reach a critical stage at a Showtime pay-per-view on December 18. In any case, after an underlying report from YouTube character Keemstar, sources affirmed to SunSport’s Chisanga Malata that the battle is off after the Englishman had to pull out.
Paul (4-0) edged out Woodley (0-1) by split decision this past August in his toughest test to date. The former UFC welterweight champion was able to rock Paul in Round 4, but ultimately he was outpointed.

Tommy Fury is out
Fury’s promoter, Frank Warren, posted a tweet thread on Monday announcing the change.
“I am absolutely heartbroken that I have been forced to withdraw from my fight with Jake Paul due to a bacterial chest infection and broken rib,” Fury said in one of the tweets. “I can’t express how disappointed I am and I really do hope we can get this fight rescheduled in the New Year, I want this fight to still happen more than anything.”
