Fight fans beg John Fury to replace Tommy and destroy Jake Paul in boxing match

Boxing fans upset with the cancellation of Tommy Fury's grudge match with Jake Paul have been begging for John Fury to step in and fight the YouTuber instead.

Fury withdrew from the hotly anticipated grudge match later this month because of a chest infection and broken rib, he confirmed in a statement on Monday.

Paul has already lined up a rematch with Tyron Woodley for the same date, but some fight fans would rather see something a little bit different.

Desperate to see at least one Fury step foot into the ring, boxing fans on Twitter have suggested the American should fight Tommy's dad John, instead.

One person wrote: "John fury vs Jake Paul would be f****** hilarious."

Another Twitter user said: "Would rather watch John Fury fight Jake Paul than watch him fight Woodley again"

A third added: "John Fury should have stepped in!"

While a fourth profile commented: "Ngl I think John Fury should take on Jake Paul instead"

"There’s only one thing for it, John Fury vs Jake Paul," claimed someone else.

John Fury and Paul have been at each other's throats throughout the build-up to the now-cancelled fight.

"Listen, I’m a horrible man, so touche," Fury told Queensberry Boxing earlier this month. "It’s a pity I can’t get to America, because believe me.

"I’ll say one thing – if people think I’m a loudmouth, and this that and the other, invade my space, and I will drop them where they stand. It doesn’t matter who they are.

Who would win in a fight between Jake Paul and John Fury? Let us know in the comments section.

"Jake Paul, anybody who tries to disrespect me and my family is getting it there and then. No backwards steps at all, none off me at all.

"I will back up what I say. If somebody comes as close to me as you are, we’re fighting. Don’t disrespect my family."

While in an interview with IFL TV in June, John said: "I'd give Jake Paul the back of my hand, and I'm 56-years-old.

"This kid [Tommy] would murder Jake Paul. He'd be on a life sentence, he'd have a murder charge if he fights Jake Paul.

The pair also traded insults at last month's press conference to promote the bout.

At one stage John even threatened to spank Paul, before launching into a rendition of Roy Orbison’s Crying to mock the American.

"I’ll tell you what it is, you wouldn’t like to meet the old man," John said. You can thank your lucky stars I’m banned from your country, because I get you I’d slap you.

"You wouldn’t be man enough to stand in the presence of me … I’d put you over my knee and spank you like a five-year-old kid."
