Tommy Fury set for lucrative payday if he beats Jake Paul

TOMMY FURY could be set for a big pay-day if he manages to topple Youtuber Jake Paul in their well published boxing match. Fury made his boxing debut three years ago and has earned a bit of money for himself, but this fight could dwarf everything that he's done.

The pair have gone back and forth with taunts and insults over social media and have now decided to take to the ring at the Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida, on December 18.

Fury is famous for going on Love Island, but is also the brother of well known heavyweight Tyson Fury. He is 7-0 in his short career, but has never fought anyone with any real statues. Jake Paul is 4-0 and will be looking to increase his reach and record further. 

Formerly of Disney, Paul is returning to the ring after leaving the sport following a split-decision victory over former UFC fighter Tyron Woodley in August. 

Jake Paul believes that he can get the better of Fury after agreeing to give the young Fury an eye-watering $500,000 (roughly £367,000) out of his own purse if he loses.

In return, Fury has signed on to temporarily change his name by deed poll to 'Tommy Fumbles' in the event he doesn't win on December 18.

"If Fury is declared the winner of the Bout, Paul hereby agrees to pay Fury Five Hundred Thousand Dollars ($500,000.00) directly from Paul’s purse as an additional fighter bonus," the stipulation read.

"However, if Paul is declared the winner of the Bout, Fury hereby agrees to (i) commence, within thirty (30) days of the conclusion of the Bout, an application process with the Royal Courts of Justice in the United Kingdom to obtain a deed poll legally changing Fury’s name to “Tommy Fumbles,” (ii) change, within twenty four (24) hours of the Bout, all of his social media accounts to reflect the name “Tommy Fumbles:, and (iii) immediately after the Bout utilise the name “Tommy Fumbles” in all forms of media."

The $500,000 bonus is in addition to Fury's show purse in excess of $1million (£734,000), which is the amount he's understood to have turned down shortly before a fight agreement was reached.
