Tommy Fury CONFIRMS talks to settle 'unfinished business' with Jake Paul and says grudge match is 'even bigger now'

TOMMY FURY has confirmed talks are underway to settle his 'unfinished business' with Jake Paul and said the fight is 'even bigger now'.

The celebrity boxers were set to put unbeaten records and reputations on the line last weekend in Florida.


But less than a fortnight beforehand, Fury pulled out with a broken rib and bacterial chest infection.

Tyron Woodley, beaten by Paul on points in August, subbed in but was brutally knocked out.

Fury has called for the fight with his online rival to be rescheduled and revealed opposing camps are already in negotiations.

He said on Instagram: "I do believe the fight is even bigger now. It's unfinished business.

"My team have reached out to his team to try and sort a date out for early next year.

"My recovery process is underway I'll be ready to go in March, so let's get this fight back on track and let's get it sorted."

The Tampa rematch afforded Paul, 24, the chance to officially say he has knocked out every opponent he has faced.

Woodley, 39, now joins YouTuber 'AnEsonGib', ex-NBA star Nate Robinson, 37, and retired UFC welterweight Ben Askren, 37, on his KO list.

But Fury, 22, slammed the five earlier rounds before the savage stoppage and goaded there was more hugging than hitting.

He said: "My thoughts on the fight were, it wasn't great.

"He was meant to be training for months and months on end and he went in the ring and hugged it out for the first five rounds.

"When you've got the commentators laughing between themselves during each round saying, 'Who do you think won that? 'Oh, I don't know, because nobody threw any punches'.

I do believe the fight is even bigger now. It's unfinished business. My team have reached out to his team to try and sort a date out for early next year.

"And comments like, 'The fight's getting kind of hard to watch now'. It's all negative signs during the fight that you don't want to be hearing.

"I'm not discrediting the knockdown, it was a good knockdown well down on his win. But apart from that, the fight was pretty painful to watch."

In a follow up tweet after his most recent KO, Paul posted: "Just asked my team if we have heard from the Fury’s, Frank Warren, or Queensberry.

"Not a f***ing peep! Fumbles and fake fooks they are."

But Fury hit back: "Just so you're all aware. My team have reached out to @JakePaul team in regards to a rescheduled fight.

"He knows where it's at and knows I want this fight. He's made comments saying we have been 'silent' which is absolutely not the case."
