Jake Paul and Tommy Fury have received a new offer to stage their long-awaited grudge match after TNT made claims that there has been ‘no response’ from The Problem Child’s team. Global Titans – the same outfit that promoted Floyd Mayweather’s recent exhibition bout with Deji Olatunji – have offered their help.
In a tweet, they wrote: “OFFICIAL STATEMENT: Global Titans have made an offer to @jakepaulto fight @tommytntfury on a Global Titans event in early 2023. We are still awaiting a response and would welcome the prospect of a GT vs. @MostVpromotions fight card from top to bottom.”
Paul and Fury are supposed to be in talks to make their fight happen in the United Kingdom, next February. However, Fury recently tweeted: “NO RESPONSE to my team from @jakepaul in regards to sorting contracts for this fight. My last tweet until I have some communication from your side.”
In response, Paul’s promotional company, Most Valuable Promotions, fired back: “Mr. Fury: Frank & George Warren are not your team anymore? Robert Davis is not your counsel? For clarity – MVP has been in daily contact with Queensberry to try and move the fight forward.”
Following a post-fight scuffle between the pair at the Mayweather vs Deji event, Tommy’s father John claimed that he had verbally agreed to make the fight happen for a third time with Paul’s manager Nakisa Bidarian. Paul followed this up by confirming his interest via Twitter but there have been conflicting reports from either side as to the extent of negotiations.
Global Titans will hope that their intervention can help save the event having previously worked with Fury for his last bout against Rolly Lambert.
