After two previous attempts, it seems that fans of influencer boxing have finally got their wish, with Jake Paul and Tommy Fury set to face each other at the end of the month.
Paul and Fury have officially signed to fight in Saudi Arabia on Sunday 26th February and, after an intense face off at the Beterbiev-Yarde event, it’s all to apparent that there is no love lost between the two.
After months of online back-and-forth’s, Paul took things one step further, as he controversially announced the birth of Fury’s daughter, Bambi, before the 23-year-old had made it official, intensifying the heated friction that they already shared.
With both men putting in the hard yards in training, for their respective toughest fight to date, recent footage allows fans to draw comparisons between the speed and boxing skill of the two.
Although ‘The Problem Child’ has revealed Fury’s fears over not having enough time to train, the 8-0 prospect is putting in the work during the short time that he has to prepare the fight, with his father, John, who’s set to be in his corner come fight night.
Meanwhile Paul, trained by BJ Flores, has been videoed throwing similar combinations to Fury, at a similar, if not quicker, speed, in a clip that has been doing the rounds on social media.
Fans commented that Fury seems to have the edge in power but that Paul’s hands look faster.
The Paul-Fury card will be available to purchase on BT Sport Box Office, with a price yet to be announced, whereas fans in the United States will have to pay $49.99 if they wish to watch the event on ESPN+.
