 Jake Paul gives Tommy Fury a fiery ultimatum to complete the fight in August;  Fury answers

Jake Paul is tired of waiting for Tommy Fury to sign for a fight against him in August.

The YouTube star-turned-boxer took to Twitter on Wednesday to issue an ultimatum to Fury after negotiations to book the matchup for a appeared to have stalled proposed date on August 6th with an event at Madison Square Garden in New York.

“Tommy Fury you retired last year,” Paul wrote. “Then you agree to fight me now, but your father is trying to pull you out again?

“We gave you everything you asked for – $2 million purse, VADA tests, tampons. You have 24 hours to resolve this or I will never give you this opportunity again.”

All signs have been pointing to Paul vs Fury for some time after the Ohio native announced his return to action in August.

Paul was originally scheduled to face Fury last December but the British boxer and reality TV star had to pull out due to injury. Ex-UFC champion Tyron Woodley served as Fury’s backup and eventually suffered a brutal sixth-round KO loss to Paul.

Fury eventually booked another matchup in April, where he finished 8th in his career with a decision win over Daniel Bocianski in a largely uneventful six-round bout that served as part of the undercard for his older brother Tyson Fury’s fight against Dillian Whyte : 0 advanced .

Paul continued his tirade in a separate post, explaining that he was told Fury would not be traveling to the United States for a fight without his father John Fury in his corner. According to Paul, a press conference to officially announce the fight was scheduled for next week, which only added to his frustration at the delays in signing the fight.

“What’s the excuse? ‘Oh I can’t come and I can’t do it because my dad can’t be with me during the fight,'” Paul said on Twitter. “Tommy, your father was banned from the United States for 15 years. You’ve known that all along. He’s a criminal. He’s not allowed in. When you fought Anthony Taylor in Cleveland, neither did Tyson [Fury] or your father was there for your US debut. Now you suddenly need your team with you? That doesn’t make any damn sense.

“You’re scared. You claim you’re a pro boxer but don’t want to fight me? Who have you talked so much shit about? Who do you say you’re gonna spark? Who do you say I’m nothing compared to you? Where is all the talk now tommy you’re a freakin’ atypical pro boxer who doesn’t really want to pull this f**k fight off this is the best f**king opportunity of your f**king life and you’re fumbling that shit again and I can’t believe how f***ing stupid you are. Damn idiot.”

For his part, Fury answered the challenge but there is no word yet on whether a deal has been signed.

As much as Paul has been preparing for a boxing match against Fury, he also recently piqued his interest in a fight against Nate Diaz, who is desperate to end his UFC contract with just one fight left.

Based on the excitement surrounding this potential matchup, Sportsbetting.ag odds makers have indeed published odds for a fight between Diaz and Paul.

As it stands, Diaz would open as a sizeable favorite at -210, while Paul is the underdog at +170.

It remains to be seen if that fight actually comes to fruition in 2022, especially as Diaz continues to wait for the UFC to book him again so he can end his contract.

As for the Fury fight, Paul seems adamant he’s done waiting and he’s hoping to find some sort of solution sooner or later to close that deal for August 6th.
