The Boxing bout purportedly transpires a week before Christmas 2021. After playful sometimes troll-oriented public business negotiations between both parties, it seems like a mutually agreeable contractual agreement was arranged for the two fighters.
The Youtuber turned prizefighter has competed under the Triller banner before and Jake Paul made his Showtime debut last time out.
His last contest was his first fight to go the distance; a split decision over former UFC welterweight world champion Tyron Woodley.
Paul is a 4-0 cruiserweight competitor with a seventy-five percent finishing rate so far.
Jake Paul vs Tommy Fury
Fury is a light heavyweight 7-0 pro boxer with four stoppage victories so far. Beyond being the half-brother of WBC/ lineal heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, Tommy is also known for his stint on the popular reality show Love Island.
Apparently, the Fury family is ready to disown Tommy should he fall short in the task of defeating Jake Paul in this upcoming throwdown.
Jake Paul has attempted to make a bet with Tommy Fury about changing his last name to Fumbles should he lose. But Tyson Fury also stated that Tommy would have to change his last name should he lose anyways.
Each of these pugilists last competed on the same card towards the end of the Summer. Fury bested Anthony Taylor, a sparring partner of Jake Paul’s, via decision in a four-round affair on August 29th.
Paul versus Fury is a clash of undefeated sweet science practitioners and someone’s 0 just might go. Fury has opened as a betting favorite in the opening odds leading up to this bout.
