JAKE PAUL has rejected Tommy Fury’s fight offer after claiming the Love Island star’s team “don’t pay” opponents.
Twice the pair have signed for a celebrity grudge match and both times Fury was forced to pull out.
Paul looked set to make a hat-trick of attempts to get Tyson Fury’s younger brother into the ring – especially after they finally came face-to-face this month.
TNT was due to fight Paul Lambert in Dubai on the undercard of Floyd Mayweather’s exhibition with YouTueber Deji only for it to be scrapped amid Fury coming in overweight.
That led to Fury facing Cameroonian Rolly Lambert in a snooze-fest exhibition instead – which Paul hit the ringside for to provide commentary.
After Tommy’s win on points his incensed dad John Fury noticed Paul ringside, and he ripped off his shirt and launched a fiery tirade at the 25-year-old.
However, he was not the only one fuming.
After Fury had come in 7lb overweight, Bamba had insisted on a new deal being made which eventually led to that bout being scrapped and Lambert stepping in.
Global Titans, who put on the event, have paid the Brit in full since as they claimed that the issue was a contractual error that was neither fighter’s fault – although Bamba is adamant he has not received a penny.
The American claims he has lost over £30,000 from it – and that has put Paul off facing Fury as he insisted that his compatriot should be paid after he made the agreed weight.
Providing an update on talks for the Fury clash, the YouTuber-turned-boxing star wrote: “One thing I’m never going to do is do business with people who don’t treat fighters well. Pay Paul Bamba.”
And that could scupper any plans as Fury has insisted that they are involved in the pair’s third attempted fight date.
Fury tweeted at the weekend: “Jake Paul, if you want this fight to happen with me and Global Titans in Feb or March in any location decided by GT, we can have the contracts sent by Wednesday.”
With Paul not initially responding, he then added: “NO RESPONSE to my team from Jake Paul in regards to sorting contracts for this fight. My last tweet until I have some communication from your side.”
