Jake Paul is tired of waiting on Tommy Fury to sign for a fight against him in August.
The YouTube star turned boxer took to Twitter on Wednesday to issue an ultimatum to Fury after negotiations have apparently stalled in booking the matchup for a proposed date on Aug. 6 with an event scheduled at Madison Square Garden in New York.
“Tommy Fury, you pulled out last year,” Paul wrote. “Then you agree to fight me now but your dad is trying to pull you out again?
“We’ve given you everything you asked for — $2 million purse, VADA testing, tampons. You have 24 hours to clear this up or I will never give you this opportunity again.”

All signs have been pointing towards Paul vs. Fury for some time now after the Ohio native teased his return to action in August.
Paul was originally scheduled to clash with Fury this past December but the British boxer and reality TV star was forced out due to injury. Ex-UFC champion Tyron Woodley served as Fury’s replacement and he ultimately suffered a brutal sixth-round knockout loss to Paul.
Fury ended up booking a different matchup in April where he moved to 8-0 in his career with a decision win over Daniel Bocianski in a largely uneventful six round fight that served as part of the undercard to his older brother Tyson Fury’s fight with Dillian Whyte.
For his part, Fury answered the challenge but there’s no word yet if a deal has been inked.
As much as Paul has been preparing for a boxing match against Fury, he also recently teased his interest in a fight against Nate Diaz, who is desperately trying to finish his UFC contract with only one bout left on his deal.
Based on the buzz around that potential matchup, oddsmakers at Sportsbetting.ag actually released odds on a fight between Diaz and Paul.
As it stands, Diaz would open as a sizable favorite at -210 with Paul as the underdog at +170.
It remains to be seen if that fight actually comes to fruition in 2022, especially as Diaz continues to wait on the UFC to book him again so he can finish out his contract.
As far as the Fury fight goes, Paul seems adamant that he’s done waiting and he’s hoping to reach some kind of resolution sooner than later to get that deal completed for Aug. 6.
