FRANK WARREN has claimed Tommy Fury snubbed Jake Paul’s lucrative fight offer because their grudge match is worth ‘millions and millions of dollars’.
YouTuber turned boxer Paul recently offered the former Love Island star a cool £733,000 ($1million) to finally settle their score.
But Fury – the half brother of WBC heavyweight champ Tyson – quickly rejected the deal, saying his proposed purse wasn’t ‘worth getting out of bed for.’
Despite Fury’s snubbing of Paul’s latest offer, talks between both camps are currently ongoing,
Warren told iFL TV: “That offer was made, but that fight is worth millions and millions of dollars so Tommy wants to get what he feels is a decent purse.
“The negotiations are going on and hopefully we can work something out.”
Paul, 24, released two videos this week urging Fury not to miss out on the golden opportunity to share the ring with him, citing the chance missed by Brazilian Jiu-jitsu whizz Dillon Danis.
He said: “Dillon fumbled his bag, he didn’t want to fight, and guess what, I am never going to fight Dillon Danis – ever.

“He thought I was joking around – and now Dillon Danis is in jail. Tommy, do you want to end up in jail?”
The divisive Paul later added: “Tommy, no one gives a f**k about you if it wasn’t for your older brother, who I respect. Or your catfish girlfriend. We all made you famous.
“Tommy, it’s like Eminem said: “You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow, this opportunity comes once in a lifetime.
Make the right choice.”
Should the pair end up sharing the ring, Paul’s older brother – Logan – believes the fight will only have one outcome.
During an appearance on the True Geordie podcast: “I’d been drinking 45 days straight after the Floyd Mayweather fight and came back and sparred the kid Tommy Fury fought [Anthony Taylor] and he didn’t make it out of the first round.
“He’s gonna get f**king murdered [vs Jake].
“It isn’t a fight between me and Tommy Fury at all. I can say what I want now, I really don’t give a f**k.
“Tommy couldn’t even finish Taylor in the four-round period.
“I was watching his fight and it’s very clear that he’s still an amateur. He’s clearly built for it, but there’s something he lacks.
“From what I saw from that fight, there is levels to this s**t and I am way above him.”
Paul, 24, hasn’t fought since his split-decision victory over former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley last month.
Fury, 22, was also in action that night, registering a unanimous decision victory over MMA fighter Anthony Taylor.
