Jake Paul Says He Wont Fight Tommy Fury

Jake Paul says that he won't fight British boxer Tommy Fury, who withdrew from their planned fight.

Tommy Fury says he wants to fight Jake Paul in March, but Jake has changed his mind.

"Most likely not Tommy," Paul said. "I kind of want someone with a bigger name. We'll see how all the stars align, but I'm tired of carrying all these Pay-per-view buys by myself."

Tommy Fury announced his withdrawal from his fight with Jake Paul.

"I am absolutely heartbroken that I have been forced to withdraw from my fight with Jake Paul due to a bacterial chest infection and broken rib. The beginning of my camp was going so incredibly and I never expected anything to come in my way from a victory on December 18th," Fury said in a statement.

"I can't express how disappointed I am and I really do hope we can get this fight rescheduled in the new year, I want this fight to still happen more than anything. I'm now regretfully putting my focus on recovery and a further reschedule date."
