The on-again, off-again boxing bout between YouTube sensation turned boxer, Jake Paul, and Tommy Fury, younger brother of boxing’s lineal heavyweight champion, Tyson Fury, is finally set and the stakes couldn’t be higher.
Tyson Fury initially stated that he would put up a $100,000 bet that his sibling would get the job done on August 6 at Madison Square Garden.
That wager didn’t sit well with Paul.
“Hey Tyson, you f****** p*****, you made $40 million — not as much as me — but let’s up the ante,” Paul said on Twitter. “Let’s bet a million on it Tyson. Two million, three million, however much you want to f****** bet. Let’s do it.
“So f*** your $100K, let’s make a better bet and make it worth a couple million. Are you down?”

Not long after Paul went after Fury, the recently retired heavyweight kingpin retaliated.
“Hey, Jakey Boy, I hear you want a bet a bigger bet than $100,000,” Fury said. “You want a bigger bet m***********? You want a million dollars? Let’s do it. Holler at your boy. You want a million, you got it.
“And hey, Jakey, I want to see this million dollars in escrow, sucker, cause I don’t think you’ve got a million dollars. I ain’t talking about crypto. I’m talking about real U.S. green backs m***********. Real U.S. dollars, no crypto.”
