Tommy Fury has admitted that he turned down two offers from Jake Paul to meet him in the boxing ring, but insists the offers “were not even worth responding to”.

The pair have been calling each other in recent months, discussing a fight that took place after Paul maintained his undefeated streak as a boxer, beating former UFC champion Tyron Woodley in eight rounds last month.

Shortly afterwards, Paul began campaigning to have Fury as his next opponent and revealed on Tuesday that he has made offers to face the Brit – both of which have been turned down.

It saw the YouTuber turned boxer Paul make “a final $1 million offer” to face him, claiming it would be the “highest payday of his career.”

However, Fury took to Instagram to shoot down Paul’s claims that he was dodging a potential fight, revealing that what was being offered “wasn’t worth getting out of bed for.”

The 22-year-old said: “I just wanted to come here and discuss some of the things Jake Paul said I turned down two offers to fight him.

“That’s true, because those offers weren’t even worth taking up, and now he’s come out and say he wants to give me a million dollars to fight him and I just want to say this.

“To everyone out there, $1 million for a fight of this magnitude isn’t even worth getting out of bed for, this fight is going to make millions and millions of pounds.

“I can’t walk down the street without someone asking me when you’re fighting Jake Paul, so until you make a serious offer and put it on the table, we can’t think about fighting buddy.”

He continued: ‘This is a very smart tactic in what he does. It is used by many fighters when they don’t want to fight someone.

“It makes it clear to the public that he made a lot of offers, put out his hand to take the fight and that I turned it down and I don’t want the fight.

“But as I said before, $1 million is nothing in boxing terms, especially for a fight of this magnitude. Tomorrow or tonight is fast enough to fight. Get your numbers up and we can talk.”

Paul approached Fury and said, ‘What’s up son, what’s right son.’ To which Fury responded by saying, “Listen, you need to stop leading my friend and let’s get started.”

Fury’s promoter Frank Warren has since confirmed talks between the two sides are ongoing, but admitted that negotiations are still in the early stages.

He told iFL TV: ‘We’re talking right now, so hopefully something happens, we’ll see. There is still a long way to go.’
