While Fury is at the top of the boxing world, much of the focus on the sport has been on Jake and Logan Paul. Both YouTube stars have had high-profile fights in recent months with some calling them disrespectful to the sport. But not Fury.
“I’ve been pretty impressed with the Pauls – both of them – to be fair, they’ve been a good breath of fresh air to the boxing scene,” Fury told TMZ Sports on Sunday. “Fantástico, tipo. Well done if you’re watching.”
Fury has been trying to set up a fight between his brother Tommy Fury and Jake Paul for a few months. Tommy Fury called Paul a “massive p–sy” en abril and Paul responded calling the call out an “act of desperation.”
Jake Paul fought and won Ben Askren and is now focused on a match against Tyson Woodley. Logan Paul is coming off of a fight against Floyd Mayweather Jr.
Tyson Fury’s bout against Wilder is set for July 24. The two came to a split draw in the first fight and Fury won the second fight via technical knockout.
