Tyson Fury is willing to put up a seven-figure price for his brother Tommy Fury to beat Jake Paul, but he’s not sure the former YouTube sensation-turned-undefeated boxer can pay.
The bet came after Fury initially said he would bet $100,000 on his younger brother to win the fight at Madison Square Garden on August 6, and Paul wanted to up the stakes.
“Hey Tyson, you fucking bastard, you made $40 million – less than me – but let’s raise the stakes,” Paul tweeted. “Let’s bet a million on this, Tyson. Two million, three million, whatever the fuck you bet. Let’s do it.
“So fuck your $100,000, let’s make the best bet and make it worth a couple of million. Are you down?”

It didn’t take long for Fury to answer and accept the challenge as he offered to put in more money to support his brother Tommy, but he also wants some assurance from Paul to make the bet official.
According to Fury, he’s not sure Paul actually has the money to cover the $1 million bet, so he wants to know the money is real before doing anything.
“Hey Jakey Boy, I hear you want to bet more than $100,000,” Fury said. “You want a big bet, motherfucker? Do you want a million dollars? Let’s do it. Scream at your boy. You want a million, you got it.
“And hey, Jakey, I want to see that million dollars in escrow, sucker, because I don’t think you have a million dollars. I’m not talking about crypto. I’m talking about real American bastards with green backs. Real US dollars, no cryptocurrencies.”

Fury’s comments likely reference recent podcast where Logan Paul said that his younger brother Jake was hit hard during the recent cryptocurrency crash with bitcoin. loss of more than 50 percent of its value in 2022.
Despite reportedly earning over $40 million in the last year, Logan said his brother “went broke” and last year’s financial gain “doesn’t matter, [Jake] put it all in a crypt — he is poor.”
While it’s hard to imagine that Paul actually lost everything due to losses in the cryptocurrency market, Fury seems convinced – or at least so much so that he is ready to give a fight to the 25-year-old fighter as he prepares for the sixth fight. his career in August.
