The recent press conference between Tommy Fury and Jake Paul was filled with controversial moments, Tommy attended the event with his father John Fury and brother Tyson Fury. Jake attended it from a pool, and the insults went a little too far away when John passed on a disrespectful comment towards Jake’s girlfriend.
BT Sports was forced to apologize to his viewers for John’s remark, and boxing promoter Eddie Hearn criticized him for the same, John replied to Eddie’s remark with a video, where he addressed this issue, and warned Eddie to keep his family’s name out from his mouth, he said, “Well listen mate, when you live in a glass house and you’re throwing boulders at people, you can expect one to land back on your head at any time mate. “There’s such thing as karma Eddie.”
He added, “I know you’re not doing so well at the moment and BT and Frank Warren are smashing you to pieces on all roads, but everybody has their day mate. Listen, I’m not trying to be anything than what I am – a raggle taggle gypsy. I’m not trying to be royalty, I’m not trying to be a gentleman, I’m just being me. If people can get offended from what I’m saying – it’s the fight game, people are here smashing one another to pieces, trying to knock people out and hurt people.”
“Have a long hard think about your own life, your own family,” John Fury advised Eddie Hearn to keep his family’s name out of his mouth
John claimed he isn’t trying to be a role model for someone, but he apologizes to all who got offended by his comment, he continued, “Eddie, you’ve just got a problem mate with the Furys because you aren’t getting paid out of them, are you? That’s why you’re slagging them and jumping on every floating log that you think might discredit a Fury. But that’s just you mate, because you’re heavy with the green-eyed monster.”
“And you’re doing it in a glass house mate, so be careful what you say about others, look in the mirror and have a long hard think about your own life, your own family, before you call others. You know what I’m talking about pal, you know what I’m talking about, so if we don’t wanna go any further with all this bulls*** Eddie, say nice things about the Furys. Because John Fury will bury you. I’ll bury you,” John concluded.
