Frank Warren, the promoter of undefeated light heavyweight prospect Tommy Fury (7-0.4 KOs), will be looking to reschedule his fight with Jake Paul (5-0.4 KOs) in early 2022.
After months of feuding, Paul and Fury were scheduled to collide last Saturday night in Tampa, Florida.
But two weeks ago, Fury was forced to withdraw after breaking a rib in training camp. He is also dealing with a chest infection.
Former UFC champion Tyron Woodley quickly replaced Fury.
Back in August, Paul won a decisive eight-round win over Woodley.
This time, Paul set a straight knockout record with a brutal Woodley punch in the sixth round.
Warren feels strongly that Fury will be a much tougher opponent for Paul.
“We’ll be looking to reschedule in early 2022,” Warren told Sky Sports.
“Jake said Tommy Fury was ‘lucky’ he wasn’t there but actually Tommy was extremely unlucky to miss his injury. The right Tommy Fury is a very different proposition than Tyron Woodley.”
After the fight with Woodley ended, Paul took the opportunity to throw a few prongs at Fury.
“Hey Tommy, wish you could be here but watching from the TV is great too,” Paul said.
“Tommy Fury is lucky he’s not there tonight, because Tyron is a lot tougher. He has that experience. Tommy would probably look a lot worse than that. [Woodley knockout] – and that’s pretty bad. I got a knock-out hit when setting that shot, because I knew he was going to try to get his right hand straight, so I had to loop it around like a hook. “
