Jake Paul has broken his silence after his tattoo, which he was paid £200,000 for by a millionaire former ball boy, vanished during his fight with Tommy Fury.
The YouTube star-turned-professional boxer accepted $250,000 (£208,000) in cash after having a bottle of AU Vodka tattooed on his arm prior to his highly-anticipated fight against rival Fury.
The vodka company belongs to millionaire Charlie Morgan, the young Swansea ball boy who was infamously kicked by Chelsea’s Eden Hazard in a League Cup tie back in 2013.

In a video uploaded to Paul’s Instagram, a tattoo artist was seen stencilling the AU Vodka bottle’s outline onto the American’s right arm in exchange for a huge sum of cash – presented in a golden briefcase against the backdrop of the Saudi Arabian skyline.
But there was no evidence of the tattoo when Paul suffered his split decision defeat to Fury last Sunday.
The vanishing tattoo set tongues wagging as fans on social media questioned whether Paul had even received a tattoo, or the sum of money quoted.
And the 26-year-old has now broken his silence regarding his ink for the first time since the publicity stunt was labelled a sham.
Paul posted an Instagram story on Friday of what appeared to be a video taken just after he had his new ink drawn.
The blonde-haired YouTuber promoted the vodka brand, saying: “This s***’s fire. And it’s blue,” before taking a swig.
He appeared to be sporting the tattoo during the clip. And his continued endorsement suggests no break up in their initial agreement.
Daily Star Sport remains on the case for the mystery of the disappearing tattoo.
