JOHN FURY has accused Jake Paul of handpicking “geriatrics” following his win over Anderson Silva.

The YouTuber turned boxer stretched his professional record to a perfect 6-0 last weekend with a unanimous decision victory over the MMA legend.

But victory over the 47-year-old UFC great has done little to impress Fury, the father of Paul’s rival Tommy.

He said on Instagram Live: “This man [Tommy] is fighting here, at least he’s a proper fighter.

“He trains as a boxer. All he’s fighting, he’s had seven pro fights against proper opposition.

“Not some hand-picked geriatric that needs a Zimmer frame [walker] to get in the ring.”

Paul, 25, dropped Silva in the final round of their Arizona dust-up on his way to a decision victory.

John, however, can’t understand how Paul opted to fight the near-fifty-year-old Silva.

He said: “If any of my sons was fifty years old and doing that, I’d say ‘Listen, have a day off, give your head a wobble.’

“‘Alls you’re going to do is make a fool of yourself and entertainment for other people.

“You’re making the other man that’s useless look good.’”

Paul and Tommy have twice been scheduled to throw down with one another but have yet to share the ring.

Injury and illness to Fury scuppered their first scheduled meeting last December, while visa issues laid waste to their second.

And John has no doubt in his mind his youngest son would teach The Problem Child a lesson.

He said: “Jake Paul can’t fight. [Tommy] will knock Jake Paul out with one punch.

“And I’ll say it now on camera: Jake Paul will get knocked out with the first right hand that he throws, and I’ll put money on it.”

Paul expected critics to be out in force after his latest victory, saying: “They’re gonna find something to say.

“‘Fight a real boxer!’ B***h, I tried. Hey, if I was walking on water, people would say I can’t swim.

“So there’s always gonna be haters, there’s always gonna be critics, and that’s just there, that’s everyday, part of life if you’re doing something and being successful.

“So I don’t worry about this s**t and this is just the start baby.”

A boxer must use his legs to defend against kicks. When he’s hit, he raises his right leg and runs away from the attacker. To avoid being kicked in the side, he bends down if the attacker attacks from the front. If the attack is from the side, he will bend his knees to avoid being kicked on the side.


Elbow strikes are very powerful because they inflict great pain. You can deliver an elbow strike directly or indirectly. Directly means you hit your opponent directly with your forearm. While indirectly, it means you hit him with another section of your arm.


Boxers use both their hands and arms to prevent incoming blows. Boxers raise their fists to block incoming blows and then move in the direction of the attacker’s attack. The attacker’s fist is then in their face.


Boxers should bend their knees when receiving blows to the abdomen, stomach, or chest. For defense purposes, knee strikes are common.
