Tommy Fury’s fight with Paul Bamba in doubt amid weight row with Jack Fincham’s opponent Anthony Taylor eyed for rematch

TOMMY FURY’S fight with Paul Bamba is in doubt on the day of the event amid a weight disagreement.

Bamba was left fuming after he scaled within the 175lb light-heavyweight limit, while Fury came in at 181.4lb.

The American, 33, was left fuming, having conceded half a STONE, and wanted to be paid a compensation fee.

But despite two days of negotiations, no settlement has yet been reached leaving Bamba in doubt to fight.

He tweeted: “The promoter just told Me acting like a diva over a “little” extra weight.

“All this from a man who has never fought in his life..”

It leaves Taylor, who lost to Fury in August 2021, in line to receive an unlikely and last-minute rematch.

But his opponent, 2018 Love Island winner Fincham, would unfortunately be out of the card, headlined by Floyd Mayweather, as a result.

Fury’s team actually negotiated a higher weight in his contract, believed to be 178 ½lb, meaning he was still 3lb overweight.

But this was not made aware to Bamba, who agreed to a light-heavyweight bout.

And despite being offered a financial compensation, it appears no deal was struck.

SunSport understands Jake Paul’s manager Nakisa Bidarian, would thrash out terms for Taylor, 33, to step in and rematch Fury, 23, if needed.
