“We’ll make it cross the line”
Promoter Frank Warren has raised hopes that a potential clash between Jake Paul and Tommy Fury will happen next year.
The couple have a long history of going back and forth on social media with various insults and they even planned to fight twice.
They were supposed to fight for the first time in December 2021, but Fury went down with injury and illness, meaning the fight was canceled and Paul instead fought the former UFC welterweight champion, Tyron Woodley, and knocked him out.
It was then revamped last year, but again fell through after Fury was unable to make it to the United States where the fight was supposed to take place.
After that, it looked like Paul was no longer interested in a matchup with Fury and moved on from the saga to fight UFC legend Anderson Silva, whom he defeated by unanimous decision.
Since then, however, Paul has had a change of heart, as he recently tweeted an offer to Fury and his promoter, Warren, in response to John Fury claiming he had a verbal agreement with the star’s manager. social media.
“Dear Frank Warren, I agree to fight Tommy in Manchester or London in February. I will come to his country, no more racing. His baby is due then and you said it was no problem.
“Since John is adamant we agree I give you 7 days to present a signed contract from Tommy or I move on.”

As is often the case with deadlines in boxing, this one was missed, but Warren is still confident the fight will happen this year.
“Both parties are really looking forward to it and I don’t think we’re anywhere near that,” Warren told IFL TV.
“It’s a life-changing money battle for [Tommy] and obviously he wants it.
“It was on and then he couldn’t get into the United States, which was a problem. But we’re going to get there, we’re really determined to get there.
“All the games are really good at crossing the line. We’ll get him across the line.
