TOMMY FURY claimed he is not in boxing for the money as he talked down future crossover fights – despite rumours of a Jake Paul rematch.
Fury – who shot to household fame for his 2019 stint on Love Island – has spent the last two years feuding with YouTuber-turned boxer Paul.

Fury is said to have made around £3-4million for the pay-per-view fight, which included the option to rematch if Paul was beaten.
The likes of YouTube superstar KSI have also since called out the younger brother of world heavyweight champion Tyson.
Fury admitted he is taking future celebrity bouts into consideration… but favours the traditional boxing route.
He said on BT Sport’s Chatterbox: “It’s definitely something that’s crossed my mind but it always leads me back to why I got into boxing after what happened in the fight.
“I’m not in boxing for money anymore because you know I don’t live the most extravagant lifestyle, I don’t live on yachts I don’t buy all these fancy things and I’m not really interested in that.
“I’ve got a car, I’ve got a place to put my head down at night and I’ve got a family and that does me.”
Paul, 26, has confirmed he will exercise his rematch clause, which is being eyed for the summer.
