‘We had a deal mate, we had a handshake’
John Fury has called on Jake Paul to honour his ‘all or nothing’ bet made ahead of The Truth bout in Saudi Arabia.
Taking to Instagram, the head honcho of one of boxing’s most famous dynasties reminded the social media star of the terms he had offered in a presso before the pair sparred.
Tommy Fury came out the eventual winner on Sunday night, winning by split decision.
Despite it not being the highest quality boxing anyone has ever seen, the fight went all eight rounds and certainly gave the millions of pay-per-view customers entertainment for their money.

However, before the fight in a press conference, Jake challenged Tommy to bet his potential winnings from the bout on himself, demanding an ‘all or nothing’ settlement.
“I think we make a deal – if you win, I’ll pay you double what I’m paying you already,” Jake said.
“But if I win, I take everything that I’m paying you. Deal or no deal, seeing as you’re so confident?”
After a bit of prompting from his dad, Tommy then shook hands with Paul on the bet.

Now, after Fury’s split decision victory, his dad is back with a message to the Paul camp, asking them to honour the bet that they made and shook upon in front of the cameras.
Fury said: “Good morning world, Jake Paul and family. Back home and well rested, head [is] back on business.
“Jake, you know what I’m going to do. We had a deal mate, we had a handshake, we said we’d box for free if we got defeated…”
Over to you, Jake!
