JAKE PAUL has filled his fight contract with Tommy Fury with a number of ‘bizarre clauses’, according to the Love Island star’s dad John.

The YouTuber turned boxer will finally settle his beef with the youngest Fury brother in a grudge match on December 18.

Fury and Paul have been going back and forth at one another for several months

And Fury’s dad John has claimed the pair’s bout agreement is full of ‘bizzare’ clauses

It’s been revealed that Fury must change his surname if he loses the battle of social media stars, with doting dad John revealing there are a number of ‘awkward’ stipulations.

The 57-year-old told BT Sport: “[Paul’s team] are being awkward.

“The contract has been bizarre. If I was going to go through what they’ve put in the contract, we’d be here all day.

“I’ve said yes to everything; yes, yes, yes, yes, do what you’ve got to do because I know Jake Paul can’t beat Tommy no matter what he does.”

Fury, 22, will pocket a £423,000 bonus if he gets the better of The Problem Child, although he’ll legally be obliged to change his name to ‘Tommy Fumbles’ if he loses.

An excerpt of the pair’s bout agreement which read: “If Fury is declared the winner of the Bout, Paul hereby agrees to pay Fury Five Hundred Thousand Dollars ($500,000.00) directly from Paul’s purse as an additional fighter bonus.


“However, if Paul is declared the winner of the Bout, Fury hereby agrees to (i) commence, within thirty (30) days of the conclusion of the Bout, an application process with the Royal Courts of Justice in the United Kingdom to obtain a deed poll legally changing Fury’s name to “Tommy Fumbles,” (ii) change, within twenty four (24) hours of the Bout, all of his social media accounts to reflect the name “Tommy Fumbles:, and (iii) immediately after the Bout utilise the name “Tommy Fumbles” in all forms of media…”

Fury – the half-brother of WBC heavyweight Tyson – has a wealth of boxing experience to his name in comparison to Paul.

And dad John is confident his son will do a number on the outspoken and divisive Youtuber.

He said: “Tommy knows he’s up against a stacked deck, but he should still beat Jake Paul at a canter.

“And if he can’t, there’s no way in the boxing world for him.

“It’s make or break, for both men, but it’ll hit Tommy harder because Tommy’s supposed to be a professional boxer.

“Tommy will work hard, he’ll do what he’s gotta do.

“Has Tommy got the skill to beat him? Yes. Has he got the power to knock him out? Yes.

“All it is with Tommy – he’s young, can he handle the big occasion on the night?

“But I’m sure he’s thought about it many times before and he’s got the king of the ring in his corner.

“Tyson’s gonna be in his corner that night. I think Tyson’s flying out there in a few weeks to help him out.

“Whatever desire he’s missing, Tyson will put there, I’m sure of that.”
