Mike Perry reveals he received an angry message from Jake Paul's coach after tweeting 'fake script' for Tommy Fury fight

Mike Perry has revealed that he received an angry message from Jake Paul's coach after he posted a 'fake script' for the Tommy Fury fight.
The ex-UFC fighter was the back-up opponent if Fury pulled out of their Saudi Arabia showdown. Of course, he wasn't needed as the former Love Island star scored a big win, earning a split-decision victory.
But despite not facing 'The Problem Child', Perry made a lot of noise after he shared a 'fake script' for Paul vs. Fury on social media.
He posted a controversial paper which listed how the fight would play out, accompanied with the caption: "What’s happening?"
'Key moments' from the 'fake script' included Paul and Fury arguing with each other, Paul calling out KSI and Fury asking for a rematch.
However, it took mere seconds for the 'fake script' to be debunked as the Brit DIDN'T walk out to 'Sweet Caroline'.
Perry's decision to upload the 'fake script' online didn't go down well with BJ Flores, who was 'upset' with the accusation.
"It was an Instagram post I think my buddy sent me," he told TMZ Sports.
The 31-year-old added: "I tweeted it and it's probably my best tweet of all time, probably. It got a lot of attention. People talked a lot of trash on me for it. Whatever. Jake's coach wrote me and was upset about his reputation.
"Ya know I was thinking, well, Jake never cared about my reputation when he posted a video of what I said to him at practice, trying to coach him up and be a part of the team, and give him that work. And he put that [training footage] out there."
Perry has moved on from a potential bout against the YouTuber-turned-boxer as he's set to meet former UFC middleweight champion Luke Rockhold under the Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship banner.
