Unbeaten Boxer Flies To Miami For Showdown Talks With Jake Paul Over Next Fight

Britain's undefeated light-heavyweight Tommy Fury is flying to Miami to have a face-to-face showdown with Jake Paul over their proposed fight.

Fury has an ongoing spat on social media with 'The Problem Child' ever since his brother, heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, first suggested that they should meet in the boxing ring.

Despite being unbeaten in five professional fights, Tommy's fame largely comes from being related to Tyson and starring on reality TV series Love Island. So he seems a perfect fit for Paul whose 3-0 record has been built against a fellow YouTuber, an ex-NBA player and former UFC fighter Ben Askren.

Tommy Fury is in the US to support Billy Joe Saunders in his fight against Canelo Alvarez in Texas - but while in the US, he's planning to fly to Miami and confront Jake Paul at the gym where he trains.

"At some point, yes," Fury told Boxing Social about whether him and Paul would meet in the ring. "There's been too much said now back-and-forth not to fight."

"I've come out and said I will fight tonight. I don't care when it is, where it is, I'll fight him in his backyard, I don't care.

"He's nothing to me, he's not a fighter, he's a YouTuber. If I was to fight him, I'd just go over there and take the complete p**s out of the man.

"It wouldn't even by a one-round job, I'd practice my skills on him. He is what he is, isn't he? I wouldn't even have him as a sparring partner."

Some would argue that Tommy, who's five pro fights have come against journeymen, has as many question marks over his pro credentials as the younger Paul brother - and the bookies odds for their potential fight are very close.

However he's bringing some serious back-up when he heads to meet Jake Paul in Miami, as his big brother Tyson is coming along.

"I'm taking a flight out to Miami with Tyson after the fight, I'm gonna swing by his gym, see what he's saying," Fury explained to Boxing Social.

"And we'll see whether he's got a lot to say then, face-to-face, which I don't think he has.

"If I'm in Miami, I might as well drop by. So make sure you're in the gym Jake Paul."
