Jake Paul Accused Of 'Bizarre' Demands For Tommy Fury Fight, It's Causing A MAJOR Issue

Jake Paul has been accused of making 'bizarre' demands for his upcoming grudge match with Tommy Fury.

YouTuber Paul will finally take on Fury on December 18 in Miami after months of feuding on social media.

Negotiations have gone on for months and Tommy's father, John, has explained just how demanding Paul has been.

"They're being awkward," John vented to BT Sport Boxing. "The contract has been bizarre. If I was going to go through what they've put in the contract we'd be here all day.

"I've said yes to everything; yes, yes, yes, yes; do what you've got to do because I know Jake Paul can't beat Tommy no matter what he does."

Paul won his last bout against Tyron Woodley while Fury defeated Anthony Taylor on the undercard that same evening.

One of the most talked about clauses involves Fury having to change his name should be lose to Paul.

Tommy's brother, WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, joked he would need to relinquish the Fury surname if he loses to Paul.

'The Problem Child' then drafted up an agreement which means Tommy will change his name to 'Tommy Fumbles' should he taste defeat.

Should Fury come out on top, Paul would have to pay the former Love Island star an extra $500,000.

There has been no confirmation that the agreement has been signed, but it has been shared on social media.

It reads: "If Fury is declared the winner of the Bout, Paul hereby agrees to pay Fury Five Hundred Thousand Dollars ($500,000.00) directly from Paul's purse as an additional fighter bonus.

"However, if Paul is declared the winner of the Bout, Fury hereby agrees to (i) commence, within thirty (30) days of the conclusion of the Bout, an application process with the Royal Courts of Justice in the United Kingdom to obtain a deed poll legally changing Fury's name to "Tommy Fumbles," (ii) change, within twenty four (24) hours of the Bout, all of his social media accounts to reflect the name "Tommy Fumbles:, and (iii) immediately after the Bout utilise the name "Tommy Fumbles" in all forms of media..."
