‘Logan trying to promote Logan – at his brother’s expense’: Skip Bayless blames Logan Paul for losing his brother Jake to Tommy Fury, after he yelled ‘the whole Fury family ab****’ in a live interview after the third round Saudi Arabia
US sports broadcaster Skip Bayless has placed the blame for Jake Paul’s defeat to Tommy Fury on the doorstep of his older brother Logan, who called out the entire Fury family in a live stadium interview midway through the fight.
At the end of the third round, the older Logan was quizzed on how he saw the fight turn out in a live interview that would have been overheard by both fighters and their camps.
He said, “Jake is doing great, I think the first two rounds were close. He definitely got that last round.
“Tommy if you can hear me, you’re an asshole and your guest out. You ab****. The whole Fury family ab****’.
It thrilled the crowd, but Bayless didn’t think it was Logan’s wisest move.
Logan Paul called out the entire Fury family halfway through his brother’s fight against Tommy Fury
After Fury was confirmed as the winner on points after the fight, Bayless wrote on Twitter, “I truly believe that Logan Paul helped his brother win that fight with his call-up between rounds of Tommy Fury and his family.
Called them all “b’s” on a mic for the audience — and Tommy — to hear. Bad idea. Logan is trying to promote Logan – at his brother’s expense.’
Logan also called out Tyson Fury on Saturday the eve of the fight, when he and his brother were in the ring as part of final preparations.
Jake Paul was filming himself and Logan standing in the ring when Logan seemed to escalate tension between the two families.
The clip begins with Jake saying, “Tomorrow I’ll prove the Pauls are bigger than the Furys.” The debate is over. Tune in, ladies and gentlemen.’
Logan adds, “Dan Tyson, round two I knock you out.”
Logan has boxed himself, most notably in an exhibition against Floyd Mayweather but also against another YouTuber in KSI. Paul lost that fight in 2019 in Los Angeles.
Tyson didn’t immediately respond to Logan’s taunts, even though he was in Saudi Arabia in his brother Tommy’s corner before the fight.

Fury said he was willing to take on a rematch with Jake Paul in the wake of his win
Tommy remained respectful to his defeated rival after the fight and said he would accept a rematch.
“Jake Paul got some good shots – he’s a much better boxer than I thought,” said Fury. “This is my first main event. If he wants a rematch, bring it on.
“I fought Jake Paul and I came out and won. He was much tougher than I thought he was going to be – people can’t possibly say he’s a real boxer. He was wild, he just kept coming.’
