JAKE PAUL vowed to END Tommy Fury’s boxing career if they fight and claimed his rival will not be “able to walk outside anymore”.

It remains to be seen whether Paul will make a hat-trick of attempts to get the 2019 Love Island star into the ring.
But the American warned Fury dodged a bullet and would be better off trading insults opposed to punches.
Paul said: “Look, it will be the last payday of his life, from boxing at least.
“He would quit boxing after that or at least he should. I’m going to turn him into a meme if we ever fight, literally a crazy meme.

“Like this guy is not going to be able to walk outside anymore. So, it’s actually probably smarter for him not to fight me.”
Paul, 25, was 4-0 when he first agreed to face Fury, 23, in December.
He had beat YouTuber “AnEsonGib”, ex-NBA player Nate Robinson, 38, as well as former UFC pair Ben Askren, 38, and Tyron Woodley, 40.
But Fury pulled out with a broken rib suffered in training and Paul went on to knock out ex-UFC champion Woodley in a rematch.

The pair again tried in August but a US visa issue saw the brother of heavyweight king Tyson, 33, withdraw again.
Heavyweight Hasim Rahman Jr, 31, was drafted in as a replacement but a weight disagreement saw Paul scrap the fight.
The social media sensation-turned boxer instead returns on October 29 against UFC legend Anderson Silva, 47, who holds a 4-1 boxing record.
Due to being in training camp, Paul will not be in Manchester, where his boxer Amanda Serrano, 33, faces Sarah Mahfoud, 32.
Meanwhile, Fury is yet to fight since beating Daniel Bocianski, 27, on points in April.
Paul said: “At the end of the day, he’s ducking me so I don’t know what this guy’s angle is.
“I think he wants to just gain popularity and fight scrubs, because he knows he can make like £100,000 every time he fights against these scrubs.
“So if he gains more popularity, the longer that gig can last for him.”
