Jake Paul is hitting back at accusations of “rigging” his boxing matches in the wake of opponent Tommy Fury dropping out of their December 18 fight.
Although he was slated to take on UK boxer Tommy Fury on December 18, the Love Island star pulled out on December 6, citing illness and a broken rib.
This news comes after a highly-volatile press conference between the two on November 24, where Fury notably accused Paul of “rigging” his fights.
Paul hit back at these claims during an interview on the MMA Hour just after news of Fury’s dropout shook the net.

It’s just not true. It’s completely bulls**t. Of course, all these people are gonna do is discredit me, because when you’re at the top, that’s what happens.
“I just want to nip the rumors in the bud,” he continued. “All of my fights have been real, are real, and will continue to be real.”
That’s not all; Paul also reminded fans that he’s included a $500,000 knockout clause in his rematch contract with Woodley.
