Jake Paul revels in $30 million payday despite defeat to Tommy Fury

Posting on Instagram, a video showed Paul pretending to cry before breaking into a broad grin, with the 26-year-old captioning the footage: “When you lost but made $30m.”

After finally meeting after two previous attempts to set up a bout were cancelled, the pair could now meet again in a lucrative rematch.

The American indicated that he would be triggering a contract option for a second fight immediately after the loss, suggesting that his build-up to his first fight with Fury had been hampered by illness and injury.

“We can run it back,” Paul said. “I think we deserve that rematch. All respect to Tommy, he won. Don’t judge me by my wins, judge me by my losses.

“I felt flat – I got sick really bad twice in this camp, injured my arm. This wasn’t my best performance, but that’s no excuse. This is definitely a humbling experience. I’ve made it further than I ever thought that I would, and beyond.”
