Tyson Fury’s brother Tommy Fury has reportedly pulled out of his boxing match with YouTube sensation Jake Paul. The fight was set to take place in just over ten days but that will not be happening anymore. It was noted that Tommy Fury suffered a couple of health emergencies. Following that news, Tyson Fury took to his Twitter account and posted a video clip. It features his and Tommy’s father, John Fury, who was doing some workout. ‘The Gypsy King’ then referred to his father as ‘BIG JOHN’.

Jake Paul was set to face Tommy Fury
Fury and Paul had built a heated rivalry in recent weeks and months. A huge encounter was scheduled to take place at Showtime pay-per-view on December 18. But after an initial report from YouTube personality Keemstar, sources confirmed to SunSport’s Chisanga Malata that the match got canceled after the Englishman was forced to withdraw. Both men were heading into their contest unbeaten as professionals.
Tommy, the younger half-brother of WBC and The Ring heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, has built an unblemished 7-0 record since his debut in 2018. He was last in action on the undercard of Paul’s clash with former UFC welterweight titleholder Tyron Woodley in August. In his first fight outside of the United Kingdom, Fury faced former Bellator MMA fighter Anthony Taylor. After four rounds of action, “TNT” took home a unanimous decision win.
Paul on the other hand is yet to face a boxer. His 4-0 record is comprised of a victory over fellow YouTuber AnEsonGib, former NBA star Nate Robinson, former ONE and Bellator 170-pound champ Ben Askren, and Woodley. The MMA reporter Ariel Helwani recently revealed that Tyron Woodley, who had previously leaked Paul’s steroid use in a photo will be stepping in on short notice to fight Jake Paul in a rematch of their August bout that saw Paul take home a decision victory.
