24th February 2023

JAKE PAUL's dad, Gregory, has rejected the prospect of fighting Tommy Fury's dad John.

Jake and Tommy are set to fight this Sunday in Saudi Arabia with the pair competing in a winner takes all bout.

Gregory and John will be watching from the sidelines with chatter that the two fathers could have a fight of their own.

However, Jake's dad Gregory has no interest in fighting John, insisting that the fight is not about them.

He also admitted that John is a "big dude", suggesting that he would probably lose if the two were to fight.

He said on the All Out Fighting YouTube channel: “No, no, like John Fury he has boxed before, he is a big dude.

“I have no beef with John, as a matter of fact, John and I are in the same arena.


“He’s got a kid that is getting punched in the face and so do I.

“So we are both going for the same thing.”

The pair will be competing for the new "Diriyah Strap" belt which was created by the WBC.

It has that name as the fight will take place at the Diriyah Arena in Diriyah, Saudi Arabia, with the winner being crowned the Diriyah Champion.

Paul has offered to pay Fury double if he wins their fight, but if the Brit loses, then he will not get a penny.

The offer was made when they came face-to-face in the Middle East in front of the media – who almost got to witness the two bitter rivals scrapping before any bell.

The bet could earn Fury an astonishing £10.6million if he wins the fight.
