This time The Problem Child’s British opponent did not show up to a press conference in Saudi Arabia where both of them were supposed to be present, Jake fired another salvo of criticism at Fury. This past Wednesday, Fury canceled his appearance at the promotional event, citing the need to prepare for his upcoming fight. Jake continued the event on his own, which prompted Paul to go furious with Tommy.
“Make sure you witness the truth on February 26. My back just hurts so much from carrying the promotion.Where you at Tommy? We’re out here hustling, selling the fight, you unprofessional swine! ” said Jake Paul.
