Jake Paul vs Tommy Fury Preview
Without a doubt one of the biggest fights of the year in terms of global interest and intrigue, as Jake Paul and Tommy Fury are set to throw down after months of deliberation.
The pair were originally scheduled to fight at the beginning of 2022, but Fury sustained an injury to his ribs whilst training, so the fight got cancelled and seemingly looked like it was never going to happen.
Fury was the pre-fight favourite for the original date a few months back, given his actual boxing pedigree an the fact that the best heavyweight in the world, Tyson Fury, is his brother. ‘TNT’ has grown up in boxing and has bee surrounded by it since he was a boy. The sport comes as second nature to him.
With ‘The Problem Child’, he came to the boxing world a few years back, through the whole YouTube boxing rise where the likes of KSI, Jake Pau’s brother, Logan and Joe Weller got the ball rolling. However, since then it has looked to fans like Paul has taken the sport seriously, training everyday and having fought a few more times against credible opponents, all be it not real boxers.
Tommy Fury has been slowly upping the level of opposition of his fights in the professional boxing world, with his last opponent boasting a 10-1 winning record. Fury still hasn’t fought more than six rounds as a pro, but is still a raw novice and is only 23-years-old. Fury is currently 8-0 with four wins coming via stoppage, so puts his undefeated record on the line against ‘The Problem Child’ on August 6th in front of what is sure to be a sold out MSG.
With Jake Paul, you have a man who has levelled up each time he has fought. First he fought Ali Eson Gib, a YouTuber will no boxing experience whatsoever, knocking him out inside one round. He then fought Nate Robinson, the basketball player, and emphatically stopped him in the second round with a clubbing shot that folded Robinson.
Then Paul really started to up the ante, fighting former UFC fighter and professional athlete, Ben Askren. Paul rose to the occasion and smashed Askren within a round, before he then stepped it up again in his next fight against Tyron Woodley, the former UFC Welterweight Champion who has tonnes of knockouts and empathic victories in his own right in the MMA octagon. Paul won a close split decision, before re-matching Woodley at the beginning of the year and knocking him out with a beautiful right hand and sending ‘The Chosen One’ tumbling to the canvas and seemingly into retirement.
Both Fury and Paul have looked good in their respective fights, but it is still unknown as to their levels and how good they can be. This fight is a real 50/50 and one that is building all sorts of interest from boxing fan and anyone who has heard the names Jake Paul or Tommy Fury, from their celebrity status rather than boxing abilities.
It promises to be a huge night as these two celebrity-professional boxers meet in the ring once and for all, so who will walk away victorious in this highly anticipated multi-million dollar dust-up?
