'Grow up!' - Tommy Fury brutally slammed by fans over X-rated message he put on Jake Paul fight poster
| Last updated
Former Love Island star Tommy Fury has been ruthlessly criticised on social media after drawing an ‘immature’ X-rated image on a fight poster featuring Jake Paul.
Fury, who is undefeated in his fledgling boxing career, is to finally settle his long-running feud with fierce rival Paul next month in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
Paul and Fury were initially slated to clash in late 2021 before the ex-Love Island star was forced to withdraw due to a bacterial chest infection and a broken rib.
The 26-year-old American fought Tyron Woodley for the second time after Fury pulled out, with Paul scoring a sensational sixth-round KO over the ex-UFC star.
Paul and Fury’s showdown was rescheduled for a second time in August 2022 at the famed Madison Square Garden before the fight was called off again.
Light-heavyweight Fury, who is 8-0 in his boxing career, was denied entry into the United States for the fight due to visa-related issues.
The pair will now fight on 26th February in the Middle East, with Fury and Paul already pulling no punches with their pre-fight trash-talking and heated standoffs.
Fury and Paul faced off against one another in the ring at Wembley Arena on Saturday ahead of Anthony Yarde and Artur Beterbiev’s thrilling fight for the WBC, IBF and WBO light-heavyweight titles.
Ahead of their altercation in the ring, Fury arrived at the venue in London with WBC champ and brother Tyson and fired early shots at rival Paul.

The 23-year-old British star was spotted walking over to a poster announcing his fight and proceeded to draw a penis aimed towards the mouth of Paul.
Paul, who last competed in the ring against UFC legend Anderson Silva last October, took to social media and aimed a personal dig at Fury.
Sharing the footage on his Instagram Stories (watch it in the video player above), the ‘Problem Child’ wrote: “Great example for your daughter.”
While Fury’s penis-drawing antics drew a laugh from his entourage, not all fans were impressed and called out the ex-Love Island star for his child-like behaviour.
One Twitter user commented: “Broooo, Tommy Fury drew a d**k on Jake Paul’s face at the conference. Like???? Grow up.”
While another fan wrote: “Nah, I’ve got 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th hand embarrassment for Tommy Fury drawing that d**k on Jake Paul.”
A third added: “Bro thinks he’s 12.”
One fan tweeted: “Tommy playing high school jokes. Bravo.”
“Very classy, Tommy. Very classy,” a fifth said.
