Tommy Fury has shut down Jake Paul’s invitation for a fight.

Love Island star Tommy Fury and YouTuber Jake Paul’s names were all over social media last week after Jake called on the boxer for a fight.

They went back and forth over Instagram and Twitter challenging each other to a match, but did their beef actually come to anything and are they really going to fight?

Tommy says he ‘doesn’t see Jake Paul as a real boxer’

After Tommy mocked Jake in a video things went pretty quiet and the islander went on to say he has “no interest” in fighting the YouTuber.

He told Sky Sports on 13 March: “He's a YouTuber who has done very well for himself but he's trying to gimmick the boxing. That's what I see from my end.

"He's a YouTuber in America somewhere, I've got no interest.

"That chapter has closed now. I saw a Jake Paul interview where he said, 'The fight might be interesting one day'. If you want to fight, you want to fight. If you don't, you don't.

“I’d respect him more if he just said, 'Tommy is too advanced, he's been boxing all his life'. Just say that rather than say, 'The fight might happen'."
