The trash talking between Tommy Fury and Jake Paul has been going on for months, but it was Fury’s dad that may have taken it too far.
During a press conference ahead of the bout, Tommy Fury was joined by his brother and world champion Tyson Fury and dad John Fury.
John Fury had a number of fiery clashes with Paul during the press conference, and one joke he made about Paul’s girlfriend has landed him in trouble.
‘Big John’ threatened he was going to bend Paul’s girlfriend over and “do her like a dog.”
