Tommy Fury believes his proposed match-up with Jake Paul should take place at Wembley Stadium. The British light-heavyweight boxer is confident the long-awaited grudge match comfortably sells 80,000 tickets at the historic venue.
However, there are doubts surrounding whether the fight will take place after two previously failed attempts. TNT recently made claims that there has been ‘no response’ from The Problem Child’s team regarding negotiations.
And this comes after the passing of Paul’s seven-day deadline to get the deal done for February in the United Kingdom. Despite Fury’s worrying statement, Paul’s promotional outfit, Most Valuable Promotions, says they have been in daily contact with Frank Warren, Robert Davis, and George Warren – who all represent Fury.
“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,” MVP tweeted.
A couple of days prior Fury was extremely positive about the fight’s chances of happening. Speaking to TMZ Sports, Tyson Fury’s brother made some very bold claims regarding the magnitude of the contest: “I definitely feel like this fight will happen this time. I’ve said if this fight doesn’t happen it’ll be through no fault of my own.
“I want this fight more than anything because it’s a chance for me to put everything that I’ve been hearing for the past two years to bed. And it needs to be put to bed because at the end of the day this man is not in my class, he’s not in my league, and he’s a YouTube fighter, that’s what this man is. I’m a proper fighter. I’m from a fighting family. I have aspirations of winning world titles.

“I feel like this is a Wembley [Arena] fight. I feel like it could do 80,000 very comfortably. If you ask anybody walking down the street on Saturday night, do you wanna go watch Jake Paul vs. Tommy Fury at Wembley, everybody’s gonna say yes. I believe it’s a massive pay-per-view fight.”
Fury remains 8-0 as a professional boxer after his last bout with Paul Bamba was cancelled on the day of the fight. Instead, the ex-Love Island star fought Cameroon’s Rolly Lambert in an exhibition contest on the Floyd Mayweather vs Deji Olatunji undercard in Dubai. Paul was in attendance for the fight as the pair nearly came to blows during a ringside altercation.
