John Fury slams Logan Paul over ‘disgusting’ jibe at Tommy Fury – ‘not professional’

John Fury has hit out at Logan Paul after the YouTuber hurled abuse at Tommy Fury during his win over Jake Paul last month.

Fury and Jake Paul faced off last month in Saudi Arabia. The Brit overcame a knockdown to win a split decision after eight rounds.

The build-up and event itself was a bit of a circus. During the main event bout, Logan Paul was interviewed from ringside and took the opportunity to hit out at Fury.

"Tommy Fury if you can hear me, you're a b****, you're gassing out."

Tommy's father - John Fury - has now responded to Paul's mid-fight antics.

"Absolutely disgusting, him piping up in a fight like that is not professional, but it just shows you that you are dealing with adolescent children, aren't you?" Fury told Express Sport (via Free Bets). "Because the comments during the fight are just ridiculous. That's not professional.

"It doesn't work, it's bad for the viewers, it's bad for everybody involved in it, in the game. But it is what it is, they are what they are, they're YouTubers. They'll do anything.

"They'll give their left nut up for a viewing figure and he obviously thought it would enhance his status as a YouTuber coming out with all that stupidity. But we knew it was coming anyway."

A rematch clause was included in the Paul-Fury undercard and a second fight is expected to occur later this year.

John Fury that they will be getting on with the rematch "in due course".

"It depends on what they want to do, but at the moment, Tommy's put a hard training camp in. We spent 10 weeks in camps, one, two months ready. So, you know, it's probably going to be later on in the year," Fury added.

"I've not spoken to people connected to either, you know, so I think Jake Paul's having a rest, just like we are, and his team and his people, we'll be on it in due course. We've not spoken about anything yet."
