Tommy Fury has shut down Jake Paul’s invitation 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?
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'."
Tommy’s mockery of Jake was shared all over social media after he borrowed girlfriend Molly’s hair extensions to try and probe Jake for a response.
He said: “Stick to your little YouTube, behind your little desk, and don't come over to this boxing world because you will get laid out in 30 seconds flat!"
After Tyson’s tweet Jake took to Twitter seemingly serious about fighting Tommy.
He wrote: “You are Fury's little brother? If you want to do something don't let your brother do it for you."
Tommy and Jake’s rivalry began when Tommy’s older brother, WBC heavyweight champion Tyson, tweeted to say the young fighters should meet in the ring.
This was way back at the start of March!
