Frank Warren: We’ll Look To Reschedule Jake Paul vs. Tommy Fury in Early 2022

Frank Warren, promoter of undefeated light heavyweight Tommy Fury (7-0, 4 KOs), will attempt to postpone the fight with Jake Paul (5-0, 4 KOs) until early 2022.

After months of feuding, Paul and Fury were supposed to clash last Saturday night in Tampa, Florida.

Two weeks ago, however, Fury had to retire after breaking a rib at training camp. He also had a breast infection.

Former UFC champ Tyron Woodley was quick to fill in for Fury.

In August Paul won a tight eight-round split decision against Woodley.

This time Paul set the record with a brutal knockout from Woodley in the sixth round.

Warren firmly believes that Fury will be a much tougher opponent for Paul.

“We will try to set a new date in early 2022,” Warren told Sky Sports.

“Jake said that Tommy Fury was ‘lucky’ not to be there, but the truth is that Tommy was unlucky to miss with his injury. A fit Tommy Fury is a very different proposition than Tyron Woodley.”

After the fight with Woodley was over, Paul took the opportunity to throw a couple of barbs in Fury’s direction.

“Hey Tommy, I wish you could have been here, but watching TV is cool too,” Paul said.

“Tommy Fury is lucky he wasn’t there tonight because Tyron is a lot tougher. He’s had that experience. Tommy would probably have looked a lot worse.” [Woodley knockout] – and that was pretty bad. I got the highlight role knockout setting up this shot because I knew he was going to try to catch the right hand that was coming, so I had to loop it around like a hook. “
