WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury has made new and extreme efforts to shoot Jake Paul, as his war of words with the YouTuber-turned-boxer continues.
“The Problem Child” takes on Tyson’s brother, Tommy Fury, at Madison Square Garden on August 6, with undefeated hopefuls ready to put their records on the line.
Jake and Tommy were due to fight in December last year, but the Love Island star pulled out with an injury, leading Paul to brutally taunt the Fury family online, and he has yet to quit.
After entertaining a crowd at Sheffield Town Hall on Sunday night, ‘The Gypsy King’ decided to give a little back and uploaded a video to social media of his audience singing ‘Jake Paul is ap *****”.
The 25-year-old saw the funny side and edited the clip to include himself orchestrating the crowd in their X-rated chant against him with the caption: ‘Beethoven’s Tenth Symphony with Tyson Fury’.
It came just hours after the pair agreed to bet some serious money on the August 6 fight.
Fury initially expressed his willingness to bet $100,000 on his little brother to make the deal against Paul, before the internet celebrity upped the ante to $2million.
After some back and forth, the pair agreed to bet $1 million on the fight, though Paul insisted it was a ‘silly change’ for Tyson and he didn’t necessarily trust the fight. Tommy.

The current heavyweight boxing king is coming off a massive fight with Dillian Whyte at Wembley Stadium which drew 94,000 people and netted him $33.6 million.
Paul’s finances are apparently in shambles after investing all his money in crypto. However, life inside the ring is going well as he goes a perfect 5-0 and holds knockout victories over former MMA champions Ben Askren and Tyron Woodley.
After recovering from the injury that hampered their first fight, Tommy finally returned to action on April 23 as he appeared on his brother Tyson’s undercard at Wembley Stadium.
He floored his opponent Daniel Bocianski and edged him to improve to 8-0 as a pro fighter, before successfully calling a fight with Paul that will finally take place later this summer.
