Jake Paul in row with Tommy Fury after accusing rival of being 'SCARED' to show up to Saudi Arabia press conference | The Sun

JAKE PAUL is embroiled in a row with Tommy Fury after accusing him of being "SCARED" to show up to a press conference.

The celebrity boxing rivals have announced the latest rescheduling of their grudge match, on February 26 in Saudi Arabia.

They officially came head to head for the first time last weekend at Wembley Arena to confirm the fight.

But Paul claimed the two are set to face off once more in Saudi to kick off their promotion – but Fury plans to no-show.

He tweeted: "Tommy Fury is scared.

"Told my team he can’t make the kick-off press conference next week in Saudi Arabia because he needs more time to train.

"Thought you said you wouldn’t even have to train to fight me? You and your papa scared."

But Fury hit back: "The press conference can wait until I get to Saudi Arabia you fool.

"I’ll be there on the 16th. 3 weeks and it’s over you big stiff sweaty goth."

Paul, 26, is currently out in Dubai training for the fight, which takes place 700 miles down the road.
