Tommy Fury has been told he isn’t ‘focused on boxing’ as much as it was ‘humorous’ to decline $1 million to fight Jake Paul and his rival.
Fury publicly admitted that he declined two offers to confront Paul and replied ‘Get your figures up and then we can talk’.
The YouTube star then responded by bumping up the deal to $1m and was even putting money from his own ‘pocket’ into the package.
But again Fury thwarted the attempt, believing he was being let down and saying the $1m was ‘not even worth getting out of bed’.
Nakisa Bidarian, Paul’s advisor and founder of talent firm BAVAFA Sports, hit out at the reaction, which she called a laughing stock.
Biderian told SunSport: “With no base of fans who have proven to be Tommy Fury buyers, Jake is now going to his third headline pay-per-view.
“He is doing bigger numbers than any boxer in America other than Canelo, who is at a different price point.
“So it’s not even a discussion of what they want, we’re making them an incredible offer and even more so if you really believe in yourself.

“That’s four times, five times more than what you’ve ever made.
“Go on, beat Jake, be the new face of this movement and guess what? Jake probably wants a rematch.
“And then you can set the terms. But until then, you’re coming to Jake’s event, promoting Jake, it’s an incredible offer.
“Most UFC champions get that as a guaranteed base. It’s ridiculous for them to say it’s not worth getting out of bed.”
Paul, 24, is in talks to fight Fury, 22, by the end of the year and is ready to start training to return to the ring.
Meanwhile, he continues his internet feud with the former reality TV star, who appeared on Love Island in 2019.
Paul mocked Fury after footage surfaced of a 7-0 light-heavyweight dance topless at a nightclub.
And Biderian argued that it highlights the difference in commitment between the two boxers.
I’m not sure that Tommy Fury is as focused on boxing as Jake. Here we are four weeks removed and I’m not watching Tommy training, I’m watching Tommy’s other videos in the public domain.

He added: “I’m not sure Tommy Fury is focusing on boxing the way Jake is.
“Here we’ve been taken away for four weeks and I’m not watching Tommy training, I’m watching other videos of Tommy in the public domain.
“If he’s really serious about his career, it really is the best offer that could ever offer itself.”
Bidrian has already warned that the latest online offer will be their third and final one.
And he fears Fury will miss facing Paul, just like Conor McGregor’s training partner Dillon Dennis did this year.
Dennis, 28, was offered a chance to fight Paul in March, but he declined it, citing a knee injury.
Retired UFC welterweight Ben Askren, 37, was given the chance instead and then dropped in April.
Bidrian said: “It reminds me of Dylan Dennis, who had the chance when Jake considered fighting him.
“Jake made her some very, very good offers, again many times more than what she usually pays.
“And he got ahead of himself or didn’t want to fight, we’re not sure what one is, and that fight is never going to happen now, Jake has overtaken him.
“It just doesn’t make sense to fight 2-0 in MMA against very good opponents. I think Tommy has the ability to do that himself.
“It will be disappointing, he is a fine young man who has worked to get to this point and I hope he takes advantage of it.”
