Mind games? Jake Paul buys Tommy Fury’s daughter a ‘designer’ GIFT and apologizes for announcing the birth of the Love Island star’s first child ahead of Sunday’s ravishing blockbuster showdown in Saudi Arabia
It seems that Jake Paul put his rivalry with Tommy Fury aside – at least for a few minutes – after buying a gift for the newborn daughter of his nemesis, Bambi.
The American had leaked the announcement of Bambi’s birth on social media, before sending an ominous threat to her father by claiming she had arrived “just in time to watch your dad get knocked out.”
But the YouTuber turned boxer seemed genuinely apologetic for his actions to take the moment away from the new parents, presenting Fury with premium brand Bonpoint baby clothes, which Fury accepted.
John Fury then went up to the stage where the conversation was being filmed and shook Paul’s hand, claiming he had “raised” in his appreciation in the perhaps surprising show of maturity.
“I just want to say I didn’t mean to leak your baby announcement,” Paul begins in the clip. ‘I actually got a present for Bambi as ‘sorry’!

After a long rivalry on Sunday in Saudi Arabia, the two will finally face each other in the ring
“It’s a lot of fun, this is a big designer baby brand.”
“Well, thank you very much, I’m sure she would appreciate you,” Fury replied as applause erupted from the audience.
“You have risen 1,000,000 percent in my estimation, son, and may the best win, appreciate you, and may the best win. Good boy!’ added Fury’s father, John, before returning to his off-camera place.
Although ‘The Problem Child’ seemed sincere in his gesture, the pair have had a heated and intense rivalry for some time now.
They are twice scheduled to meet in the ring, only for Fury to pull out on both occasions, threatening to collapse the prospect of a clash.
And in the run-up to the fight, which takes place in Saudi Arabia on Sunday, the pair have exchanged even more verbal blows, with Paul digging at Fury’s physique on Twitter and the Brit promising his rival will “feel every one of him.” my offerings’.
The feud has also seen members of Fury’s family – famous for their boxing heritage – wade in and have their say.
John Fury ripped off his top and challenged Paul to a fight after son Tommy’s fight with Rolly Lambert in November, declaring himself the “king of the bare-knuckle man,” and also claiming that Fury “doesn’t deserve to be get paid’ as he can’t beat the American.

And Tommy’s heavyweight champion half-brother Tyson Fury has claimed the 23-year-old can’t take Paul for granted and that he should stay in Saudi Arabia if he doesn’t beat the American.
It’s not the first time Paul has given his opponent a present, having bought Tyron Woodley a Rolex watch ahead of their 2021 clash.
On that occasion, Paul knocked out the American former UFC welterweight champion in the sixth round of their second meeting.
Whether it was an attempt by Paul to get into his opponent’s head ahead of the highly anticipated fight, Fury seemed to appreciate the gesture.
