Jake Paul thinks Tyson Fury has ‘finally earned the chance’ to fight him after Deontay Wilder victory
YouTuber and boxer Jake Paul has weighed in on Tyson Fury’s fight with Deontay Wilder on Saturday after the Gypsy King stopped the Bronze Bomber in the 11th round of the contest.
The third bout between the pair saw Fury retain his WBC title, with the fighter saying the match was “worthy of any trilogy in the history of the sport”.
Naturally, Paul, another high-profile name in the sport right now, was quick to take to Twitter to share his thoughts on the result.
“I think Tyson Fury might have finally earned the chance to fight me,” he wrote.
Paul is yet to fight a professional boxer, however, with his previous opponents being fellow YouTuber Ali Al-Fakhri (known online as AnEsonGib); former basketball player Nate Robinson and mixed martial artists Ben Askren and Tyron Woodley.
