Apparently, the duel between American content maker-boxer Jake Paul (6-0, 4 KOs) and British light heavyweight Tommy Fury (8-0, 4 KOs) is not destined to take place.
Previously, Paul agreed to fight in England, since Tommy was ordered to the USA (due to connections with crime boss Daniel Kinahan). It was supposed to happen in February.
But, apparently, something went wrong again. And now Paul, who on the eve of a large-scale step into the world of MMA, having signed an agreement with the PFL, is going to have his next boxing match with ex-UFC fighter Mike Perry, who recently fought in fisticuffs under the auspices of the BKFC.
“Mike Perry, this could be your lucky year,” Jake said. Because Tommy is running away again. If the fans only knew how much money I offer Tommy, and he still squirms cowardly from me. It’s very sad.”

But not so long ago, Fury told how many rounds he would deal with Paul in February.
