In August Jake Paul improved his fledgling pro boxing record to 4-0 with a split decision win over former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley. That win followed a TKO over Ben Askren earlier this year.

Since then a host of individuals have been interested in facing off with ‘The Problem Child’, including Woodley—who is insisting he won’t get his ‘I love Jake’ tattoo unless a rematch is arranged.

One figure who expressed a desire to fight Paul both before and immediately after the Woodley fight is Tommy Fury, the younger brother of heavyweight boxing champ Tyson Fury. Fury, who is also a reality TV star, won on the Paul vs. Woodley undercard, beating Paul’s sparring partner Anthony Taylor.

Fury and Paul scuffled backstage at that event, with Fury challenging Paul to a fight and claiming that the famous YouTuber was afraid to fight him.

However, Paul is now claiming that Fury is the one stalling or backing out of a potential fight. He took to Twitter to claim that his camp had made two offers to Fury, with the British fighter denying each of them. In his tweet Paul claimed that Fury has been offered $1 million for eight rounds.

Paul also claimed that his offer was four times more than Fury had ever made on a fight.

The 22-year-old Fury is currently 7-0 in his boxing career with four of those wins coming via KO. Before beating two former MMA champs, Paul got wins over ex NBA player Nate Robinson and fellow YouTuber Ali Eson Gib.
