Jake Paul vs Tommy Fury is one of the most highly anticipated boxing matches of 2023. The two fighters have been building up hype for this bout for months, and fans all over the world are eagerly waiting to see who will come out on top
Jake Paul, a popular YouTuber and social media personality, has been making waves in the boxing world since he first started training in the sport. He has had several high-profile fights against other social media stars and celebrities, and has won all of them so far. However, Tommy Fury presents a different challenge altogether. As the younger brother of heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, Tommy comes from a family with a strong boxing pedigree and has been honing his skills in the ring for years.
The fight is scheduled to take place in a venue yet to be announced, and it is expected to be one of the biggest boxing events of the year. Fans around the world will be able to watch the fight live on pay-per-view, and it is expected to draw a huge audience due to the popularity of both fighters.
Jake Paul and Tommy Fury have been engaging in some trash talk in the lead-up to the fight, with each fighter confident in their ability to win. While Jake Paul has been dominant in his previous fights, Tommy Fury presents a different level of challenge.

Tommy Fury, with his half-brother and heavyweight champion Tyson Fury joining his corner on stage, promised to knock Jake Paul out “in four rounds”; the pair’s eight-round bout on Sunday will secure the winner a world ranking at cruiserweight, the WBC have announced in a shock move
Jake Paul and Tommy Fury had to be pulled apart at a chaotic weigh-in ahead of their clash in Saudi Arabia on Sunday.

Jake Paul vs Tommy Fury Weigh In: No Scale Fail For Paul or Fury
It’s a big deal that they made it through the weigh in, and both Jake Paul and Tommy Fury made weight for their Sunday grudge match in Saudi Arabia.
The bout had been set and blown up twice before, so we can be more than cautiously optimistic that we will see Jake Paul and Tommy Fury settle their beef. You can watch on the ESPN platform, via PPV.
One eighty four point five,” intoned the dapper emcee Michael Buffer, as young Tommy, as ever looking ripped (but is he ready?) clapped his chest, thumping in a confident manner.
“One eighty three point six,” said the emcee, as Paul, now a resident of Puerto Rico, put his pointer finger up to his lips, a sign that he’s about to shut up haters, of which there are still plenty.
There is more and more of an air of acceptance with this situation, with this trend in the sport. More folks understand that for good or bad, Jake Paul is the first person lots of persons think of when they are asked to name a famous boxer of today. It is what it is, right? Skills used to pay bills more so than today, now a high profile on social media can leapfrog somebody to a plateau that would have been unthinkable even ten years ago.
Paul, by the way, was still trying to get Tommy Fury to sign an additional contract, which would make the clash a “Double Or Nothing” endeavor, with Fury to get double pay if he wins, and nothing, nada, zilch, if he were to lose. Tommy’s dad John verbally accepted that challenge offered at the Thursday presser, and did you see Tommy’s head whip around and him looking at his dad with bug eyes? Tommy changed the subject, or tried to, telling Jake he’d “knock him the eff out” again and again as Jake talked terms.
“It’s over,” Fury declared, punctuating his messaging with a shove. Brother Logan Paul, Papa John Fury, coordinator Dereck Chisora, Jake trainer BJ Flores, everyone looked on, and it seemed contained, no threat of a pre-fight fracas breaking out, and maybe breaking up the promotion. That would be unlikely, of course, but being that three attempts were needed to get this fight off the runway, better to be safe than sorry again.
Ray Flores asked Tommy how he was feeling. “His time is up, I’m gonna put this man away by four rounds,” he asserted. He said that Fury last name will be properly represented come Sunday.
Flores then chatted with Jake Paul: He said Tommy is “capping,” putting on a show, trying to act like Tyson Fury. “This professional boxer is going down, it’s easy, it’s simple, this is what I do, he’s shaking,” he said, calling himself “chill, a real killer, a real dog.” He will rep Cleveland, Ohio, he said.
Jake said he is sticking with his prediction, that the fight will end in four rounds or less. “We’ve done all the hoopla, the yah yah yah…it’s time to figure out the truth.”
Almost…we are one day away from this being settled. Fingers are lightly crossed we get there. Please be on the lookout for a prediction page from Gayle Frankenthaler, see who on the NY Fights roster likes Tommy Fury to upset Jake Paul. OK, I will give more than a hint: I am picking Tommy Fury to rise up, and prove that Team Paul thought wrong when they isolated on him as a weak link in the Fury chain. Tommy Fury will stop Jake Paul, and that second event Jake promised for Saudi Arabia will be Tommy Fury-Jake Paul 2, for the summer time.
