The respective partners of Tommy Fury and Jake Paul are prepared to engage in a ‘mud wrestle’ while the men square off at Madison Square Garden.
On August 6, Jake Paul and Tommy Fury are scheduled to settle their score in Madison Square Garden. Their partners Julia Rose and Molly-Mae Hague may participate in a peculiar match of their own.
Julia has asked her one million Instagram followers whether they should participate in mud wrestling on the undercard of their upcoming summer fight that will be shown on pay-per-view.
The PrettyLittleThing creative director Molly-Mae doesn’t appear inclined to get involved in the conflict. Tommy Fury will attempt to defeat the former YouTuber and improve his professional record to 9-0.
Julia posted on her Instagram a poll stating: “Should molly and I mud wrestle?” After nine hours of online voting, 85% of respondents said they should participate in their own match, while 15% said they shouldn’t.
After five wins in the professional ring, Paul has now altered his mind and said that this would be by far the greatest victory of his career. He has previously been quite critical of Fury’s skills.
Paul said: “All jokes aside, this is my toughest test yet. You guys wanted me to fight a real boxer.
“You guys have been tormenting me day after day out, ‘fight a real boxer, fight a real boxer’.”
After Paul protested about apparent delays on the part of his opponent, Tommy Fury confirmed on Thursday that the match will take place.
Fury said on Instagram on Thursday: “Just to let you all know, the fight on August 6 is going ahead.
“The contract has been signed after weeks and weeks of waiting for Jake Paul to sign up to the drugs testing and potentially putting the fight at risk, he’s finally signed up to the drugs testing.
“We’ve agreed a contract that we’re happy with, so the fight is going ahead and I’ll see you August 6.”
