Jake Paul, the Youtube star will fight next against Tommy Fury on December 18. His wait to fight a real boxer will finally come to an end. He will continue his career with the 22-year-old brother of world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury. Here in this article, we are going to talk about the upcoming Paul vs Fury match.
Jake Paul vs Tommy Fury Preview:
Tommy Fury has an appropriate experience level to fight against Paul. As a professional, Fury is 7-0 where Paul is 4-0 since January 2020 while he turned into a pro. Paul defeated former NBA star Nate Robinson with a viral knockout. Before that, he defeated his fellow YouTuber AnEsonGib.
“I started my professional boxing career less than two years ago on [Jan. 30, 2020],” Jake Paul said in a press release. “Four fights, three pay-per-views, two as the headliner, and one sold-out arena, I’m looking forward to my toughest challenge yet and continuing to prove the critics wrong. Fight a real boxer they’ve said, and that is exactly what I’m doing.”
“An undefeated boxer from the legendary Fury bloodline. However, this one is more than just boxing for me. It’s for America and showing the world there is no other country that gives you the opportunity to achieve whatever you set your mind to.”
“It’s for every young person who has a dream and dedicates their life to achieving it. On Dec. 18, I’m continuing to fulfill my dreams and turning a Fury into a Fumbles.” Paul said.
Fury was on the undercard event of Paul vs. Woodley, where he won a four-round decision win over Anthony Taylor. Fury agreed to change his name to “Fumbles” if Paul wins. So, the fight is on.
“Jake Paul is about to learn a serious life lesson,” Fury said in the release. “This is my world, and he doesn’t belong here. I’m not one of these MMA men or basketball players, I have been boxing my whole life.”
He also said, “On Dec. 18, I will show the world the difference between a YouTuber and a real fighting man. Thanks to my promoter Frank Warren, Most Valuable Promotions and Showtime for giving me the opportunity to shut this clown up once and for all.”
If Fury wins the fight, he will receive a $500,000 bonus. But if he loses, “TNT” will have to change his name to Tommy Fumbles. Paul created this nickname to antagonize Fury. The net worth of Jake Paul is estimated to be between $20 and $30 million.
