Grinning Tommy Fury Refuses to Answer GMB Host Susanna Reid’s Question on Jake Paul Victory
Tommy Fury, the younger brother of former heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, recently made an appearance on Good Morning Britain (GMB) to discuss his upcoming fight against fellow boxer Jordan Grant. However, the interview took an unexpected turn when host Susanna Reid asked Fury about his thoughts on Jake Paul’s recent victory over former UFC fighter Ben Askren.
Fury, who is a close friend of Paul’s, was visibly uncomfortable with the question and refused to answer it. Instead, he simply smiled and said, “I’m here to talk about my fight.” Reid then pressed Fury on the issue, asking him if he was “proud” of Paul’s victory. Fury again refused to answer, simply saying, “I’m here to talk about my fight.”
The exchange between Reid and Fury quickly went viral, with many people praising Fury for his refusal to answer the question. Many people felt that Fury was right to not get involved in the discussion, as it was not relevant to his upcoming fight. Others felt that Fury was simply trying to avoid the question, as he is close friends with Paul and may not have wanted to give his opinion on the matter.
Regardless of the reason, Fury’s refusal to answer the question was a testament to his professionalism and respect for the interviewer. He could have easily answered the question, but instead chose to stay focused on the topic at hand. It was a refreshing display of respect and maturity from a young boxer who is still learning the ropes of the sport.
Fury’s upcoming fight against Grant is set to take place on June 5th, and it will be interesting to see how he fares against his opponent. Regardless of the outcome, Fury has already proven himself to be a class act both inside and outside of the ring.
