Recently Jake Paul alleged that he had sent two offers to Tommy Fury over a potential boxing match and that they had both been turned down. Paul further claimed that those offers included a $1 million pay day, which Paul said represented a figure four times that of what Fury has previously made to fight.

Since then Paul, seemingly frustrated by not booking his most desired opponent, released a video captioned “My final message to Tommy Fury.”

“You’re too busy taking molly instead of taking fights,” charged Paul (ht MMA Fighting). The ‘Problem Child’ then compared Fury, and the likelihood he misses out on fighting him, Dillon Danis—someone Paul beefed with long before he beat Ben Askren and Tyron Woodley.

“Dillon fumbled his bag,” he said. “He didn’t want to fight, and guess what, I am never going to fight Dillon Danis – ever. He thought I was joking around – and now Dillon Danis is in jail. Tommy, do you want to end up in jail?”

Danis was recently arrested and charged with disorderly conduct for an incident that took place inside a restaurant in Seaside Heights, NJ.

“Tommy, no one gives a fuck about you if it wasn’t for your older brother, who I respect,” continued Paul. “Or your catfish girlfriend. We all made you famous. ... Tommy, it’s like Eminem said: You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow, this opportunity comes once in a lifetime. Make the right choice.”

Fury, the younger brother of Tyson Fury, beat Paul’s training partner on the undercard of August’s Paul vs. Woodley card. After that event, Fury was captured on video backstage confronting Paul over a possible fight.
