Jake Paul sets sights on Wagner fight after Fury defeat

Maybe he can win this one?


YouTube thing Jake Paul has turned his attention to former X Factor contestant Wagner after losing in the ring to Love Island’s Tommy Fury.

Fury was a split-decision winner after eight rounds of hugging in Saudi Arabia with Paul suffering a first loss in the process.

Now the 26-year-old influencer has set his sights on another reality TV star as he looks to get his fledgling boxing career back on track.

Calling out the Brazilian crooner via his YouTube channel, Paul said:

‘Never mind the Furys. What the people really want, is to see me in the ring with that old guy who played the bongos on X-Factor series 7’.

‘Wagner, if you’re watching, I’m gonna eliminate you like Mary Byrne did in the quarter-final sing-off’.

‘I’ll murder you like you murdered Creep by Radiohead’.

‘You can even bring Chico, Jedward and Louis Walsh into the ring with you if you like!’

When asked if he thought there was an appetite for a bout between himself and a 67-year-old former X Factor novelty act who now sells personalised videos for £20, Paul snapped:

‘If the public are willing to pay my brother 12 quid for a bottle of flavoured water, they’ll pay 20 to watch me knock seven shades of sh*te out of Wagner’.

After hearing that Paul had called him out, Wagner accepted the challenge by saying he would fight the social media star ‘anytime, anyplace’.

‘Jake Paul is arguably the second-best fighter in his family, but I am not afraid to face him in the ring’, roared the awful singer.

‘I will fight him anytime, anyplace – except Thursday evenings. I have a shift in ASDA those nights.

‘Jake, if you’re watching, I’ll beat you like I beat my bongos during my live performance of ‘She Bangs’ on X Factor’.

‘I’m gonna hit you so hard your silly back-to-front names will swap around’, he added.
