Jake Paul is famous for making pre-fight wagers with opponents, and Tommy Fury is no different.
The 26-year-old fighter offered an even bigger proposition to Fury with huge financial stakes up for grabs, throwing down the gauntlet after Fury promised “you’re getting put to sleep inside four rounds” during a press conference for Sunday’s grudge match.
” “I believe we make a deal when you are so confident.” Paul replied. “I think we make a deal. If you win, I’ll pay you double what I’m paying you already. But if I win, I take everything that I’m paying you.
“Deal or no deal since you’re so confident. Do you want to deal or not? I want to shake on it.”
Paul won previous bets against Tyron Whiteley. He ended up getting a Jake Paul tattoo and Anderson Silva who agreed to back his fight’s idea of a union.
Paul stood up to offer a handshake and Fury rose to his feet. The fighters kept yelling at one another on the stage.
While that continued, Fury’s father and trainer John Fury accepted the bet on his son’s behalf — and he made sure the offer was legal and binding.
“You’re dealt – you’ve got a deal,” John Fury shouted. “All or nothing. It’s all there. Just to confirm, can we have this in writing, please, as well? Because you know what? Thank you Jake, you’re making our night and stay even better.”
Paul and Fury finally parted ways, but they continued to chirp with the fighters trying their best to get each other off of their nerves by doing a move. However, Derek Chisora (heavyweight boxer) kept them apart.
Order was eventually restored, and Paul promised the wager was legitimate with contracts awaiting Fury’s signature.
” You heard it ladies and gentlemen. It’s a deal,” Paul stated. My lawyers have actually prepared the contract. You know what’s funny, Tommy, is that your dad agreed to the deal before you. Your dad is more confident than you.”
Fury’s father laughed at Fury’s bet, which could possibly earn him twice his salary.
” If Jake Paul defeats Tommy Fury then Tommy Fury shouldn’t be paying,” John Fury stated.
The back-and-forth chatter finally came to an end with Paul and Fury coming face-to-face during an intense staredown. The fighters eventually separated with plans for one final faceoff during the weigh-ins, which are scheduled for 4:30 a.m. ET/ 1:30 a.m PT on Saturday from Saudi Arabia.
