Jake Paul's coach BJ Flores on Tommy Fury: Who has he beat?

Jake Paul's coach BJ Flores reacted to criticism from Tommy Fury who saw 'flaws' in Paul “Who has he beat?” Flores said on The MMA Hour. “When has he ever been a main event? How many pay-per-views has he ever sold? You know what I mean? I’m not saying he wouldn’t be a good opponent for Jake, he’s 7-0, 8-0, whatever he is, but he hasn’t really fought anybody yet.

A lot of people say that about Jake, but Anderson Silva beats Tommy Fury. I don’t care what anybody says. He beats him one-sidedly, no question about it." Many are wondering if there will be a fight between Paul and Fury.

“Even Tyron Woodley might give him a lot of problems as well. I just think that Jake’s level of opposition and the big events that Jake has been far outweigh what Tommy has done, but we’ll see, we’ll see if it makes sense.

We can’t really comment on that too much, but I don’t think it’s a very difficult fight for Jake”. “I would rather not, honestly,” Flores said. “I feel like a cat can’t change its stripes sometimes.

Whatever, maybe it’s out of his control, maybe he really couldn’t get in the country, maybe he really did suffer a real injury the other time. I don’t know, but it just seems kind of weird to me that two different times he wasn’t able to actually make it to the ring."


Flores on Paul vs Fury

Flores doesn't seem to want a match between Paul and Fury. “I would rather not, honestly,” Flores said. “I feel like a cat can’t change its stripes sometimes. Whatever, maybe it’s out of his control, maybe he really couldn’t get in the country, maybe he really did suffer a real injury the other time.

I don’t know, but it just seems kind of weird to me that two different times he wasn’t able to actually make it to the ring. “He wasted a lot of people’s time. He wasted Showtime’s time. He wasted a lot of people’s money, training camp money, on a fight that never actually happened.

I’d prefer not, but if that’s the direction [Paul’s manager] Nakisa [Bidarian] and Jake want to go, so be it. There’s other people on the list as well, it’s not just him”.
