Jake Paul sends fiery DM to Tyson Fury hours after brother Tommy pulls out of fight
'Tyson, I just wanna let you know you're a f***ing bitch and so is your brother'
Jake Paul sent Tyson Fury a fiery message privately just hours after his brother Tommy pulled out of their fight.
YouTuber-turned-boxer Paul was set to fight Tommy on December 18 in Tampa Bay, before the 22-year-old confirmed that he had to pull out of the hotly-anticipated contest due to illness.
In a statement, the younger Fury said: “I am absolutely heartbroken that I have been forced to withdraw from my fight with Jake Paul due to a bacterial chest infection and broken rib.
"The beginning of my camp was going so incredibly and I never expected anything to come in my way from a victory on December 18th. I can’t express how disappointed I am and I really do hope we can get this fight rescheduled in the new year, I want this fight to still happen more than anything. I’m now regretfully putting my focus on recovery and a further reschedule date."

Live on the show, the American decided to send a voice-recorded private message to Tommy's brother, and heavyweight champion Tyson, to let him know what he thought of his brother.
He said: "Tyson, I just wanna let you know you're a f***ing bitch and so is your brother.
"This is an embarrassment and hopefully, you guys can get that vaginitis cleared up super quick, you f****ing dosser."
Paul couldn't hide his disappointment at the news that the fight would no longer take place and doesn't believe that the former Love Island star was actually injured.
"I think the pressure got to this kid," Paul said.
"He's only been put in there against people who are meant to lose, who have losing records. It's scary fighting me on the biggest stage possible.
"He's a young kid, he hasn't been through a lot. He's had a silver spoon in his mouth his whole life, so I think the pressure got to him and cracked him and he has vaginitis is what they're saying."
The American then added that he now may not consider rescheduling the fight, claiming that Tommy has missed 'the biggest opportunity of his life.'
"I don't know if I want to give him it anymore," he said.
"I might just leave him in the dust. This was the biggest opportunity of his life, so it might be a little cynical, but I think it'd be kinda fun to just not give him the chance again, and he's gonna have to fight 20, 30 more times if he wants to get the same payday. So, good luck!"
