Tommy Fury is again urged to ‘do his own pay-per-view’ to get Jake Paul’s attention.

Celebrity rivals were due to put bragging rights and unbeaten records on the line in the December 18 grudge match.

But Fury, 22, was forced to move out due to a broken rib and a bacterial infection in his chest.

Upon his comeback, 39-year-old Tyrone Woodley, four months after losing to 24-year-old Paul, filled in as a replacement, and was eliminated in round six.

Fury has since called for their fight to be rescheduled, but according to YouTuber’s trainer BJ Flores, Paul is not interested.

Flores told The Shamo: “Yeah, he fumbled, I don’t think Tommy Fury is on Jake’s mind right now.

“We all thought at the time that we would be surprised if this fight stops.

“We were working so hard for a gameplan for Tommy even after the contracts were signed and Tommy talked about it and we weren’t surprised when he said it two weeks ago.

“We talked about some options, but Nakisa (Bidrian) and Jake decided to rematch with Tyrone because he deserved his leave and leave and we didn’t want to back it up and not allow him to fight. wanted to give

“It’s the worst feeling in the world so I don’t think Tommy is on Jake’s mind right now.

“Tommy should go and do his pay-per-view so we can see the numbers analyze him and go from there.”

Paul has now outmaneuvered every opponent he has faced, with Woodley joining YouTuber ‘AnEsonGib’, former NBA player Nate Robinson, 37, and retired UFC welterweight Ben Askren, 37.

But with Fury’s cancellation, it means he still has to fight an opponent with prior professional boxing experience.

And the American is ready to leave his British rival in the dust – and would like to face his brother Tyson, 33, or DAD John, 57.

Paul told Chris Mannix: “He wants payday but I’ve said before that I don’t want to fight with him, he doesn’t deserve it.

“I’ll fight Tyson. I want Tyson to come to cruiserweight and it’s going to be a big fight, or his dad.

“His father John did a better job of promoting the fight than Tommy. So I would fight his brother or his father before I could fight Tommy.”
