‘TNT’ was scheduled to fight Paul Bamba on the Floyd Mayweather vs. Deji undercard before Fury missed weight in a bizarre situation allegedly caused by each fighter having a different weight limit on their contract. Nonetheless, the former Love Island contestant ended up boxing Rolly Lambert in an exhibition bout.
Paul made the trip to Dubai and secured a ringside seat inches away from the action. While ‘TNT” was fighting Lambert, ‘The Problem Child’ joined the commentary and began ruthlessly screaming at Fury by saying:
“You f***ing suck Tommy. You f***ing suck. You are a f***ing amateur still. This is embarrassing. You have no d**k”
“Whatever this dance is, it’s just some BS,” Paul Smirked during the fight. “Welcome to the sport of boxing. This is waste of the fans’ time, this is a waste of the fans’ money. This is a waste of my time.”

Fury and Paul were supposed to fight twice before the half-brother of heavyweight champion Tyson pulled out, once for an injury and another for denied access to the United States. Despite pulling out twice, ‘TNT’ is still interested in fighting ‘The Problem Child.’ The former Love Island star was furious during his post-fight interview and had this to say:
“There’s a certain b**ch at ringside who I want in the ring right now. Tell him to get in here… I’ll fight him now when I’ve just had a fight! Get in this ring now, c’mon! You, get in the ring now!”

John Fury escalates altercation with Jake Paul
The YouTuber-turned-boxer continued to troll Fury, leading to ‘TNT’ being held back by security. John Fury ended up hear enough and started arguing with Paul. Tommy’s father removed his shirt, screamed at ‘The Problem Child,’ flexed his muscles, and started shadowboxing before Jake grabbed the microphone and said:
“You’re embarrassing. You’re a fat, miserable old man.”

Paul’s last boxing match was a unanimous decision win against MMA legend Anderson Silva. ‘The Problem Child’ advanced to 6-0 with 4 KOs, which has left fans and haters wanting him to fight a young boxer in his weight class. ‘TNT’ would be the perfect opponent if the former YouTuber could trust him to show up. It’ll be intriguing to see if these rivals end up fighting in 2023.
