Tommy Fury has told talkSPORT his mother would beat Ben Askren and called on Jake Paul to ‘send the contract’ for them to fight next.
The 5-0 (4 KOs) pro boxer, brother of Tyson Fury, confirmed he would be interested in facing the 3-0 (3 KOs) YouTuber-turned-boxer after it was revealed there are now talks between their respective camps.
“I think it’d be a massive fight,” Jake said to ESPN. “He’s fought scrubs to make himself look good.
“People will say the same about me, but I’ve fought guys with winning records like Ben Askren and AnEsonGib.
“Our teams are talking and trying to figure something out.”
Fury has now replied on talkSPORT Fight Night: “Make no mistake, it doesn’t matter to me whether my name’s linked with his because his name’s nothing to me.
“I’m a fighting man, I’m a boxer, so why do I care about a YouTuber? It doesn’t come into my world.
“So the fact that he’s come over to my world, he’s shouting his mouth about and he wants to insult me, let’s get in the ring, let’s do it.
“Me and him have had the same amount of fights. I’m not no big, great Olympian who’s won a gold medal and had 50,000 amateur fights.
“On paper we’re the same, so if he wants to be cocky and go on like he’s Floyd Mayweather, come and fight me.
“And if you don’t, stop using the Fury name to gain relevance in the boxing world.”
Tommy’s promoter Frank Warren confirmed the talks with Jake’s team and expressed his desire to reach a deal.
Fury added: “It’s a play-about for me. It’s a good fight for the fans, everyone wants to see him get annihilated, it’d give me a bit more exposure.
“Just send the contracts over, get in touch and we can make the fight no problem.
“It’s not no big thing that needs to be talked about for a year long, it’s not a big fight like Anthony Joshua vs Tyson, it’s not on that level.
“We’ll take the fight. If he sent the contract over tonight, it’d be signed and delivered straight back to him.
“All I see for that fight is easy money against an idiot.
“He makes YouTube videos for a living, he hasn’t been hit in his face in his entire life, he doesn’t know what it’s like to take a shot.
“I’d put my mother in with Ben Askren and my mother would chin him because he’s no good, he’s useless, he’s a wrestler.
“UFC is not boxing. If you’re gonna fight an MMA fighter you may as well fight a chef out of a kitchen because they can’t fight, they can’t stand up.”
