The fight between YouTube star Jake Paul and longtime foe Tommy Fury will take place in Saudi Arabia, and boxing icon Mike Tyson is backing the influencer to win.
Let’s see what will happen if these boxing stars face off in the ring. Also, we will discuss how to bet, where to bet, and odds analysis in this article.
JAKE PAUL VS TOMMY FURY:
Jake Paul and Tommy Fury are expected to battle on February 26 at the Diriyah Arena in Saudi Arabia. It took a few attempts, but it now seems as though Jake Paul will finally face his greatest enemy Tommy Fury in Sunday’s match.
On December 18, 2021, the fight was scheduled to take place, but Fury was compelled to withdraw due to an injury.
Tyron Woodley took over for Fury, who was then eliminated by Paul in the sixth round. On August 6, 2022, Paul made another attempt to get Fury into the arena. However, visa issues stopped Fury from entering the United States.
There are no visa concerns for the battle in Saudi Arabia, and Fury’s health doesn’t seem to be a problem. And the heated final battle between Paul and Fury is now to happen.
Tyson Fury, the WBC heavyweight champion, is Fury’s half-brother, who casts a very long shade over him. Many people are wondering where Paul fits in fighting given his past as a YouTuber.

Paul has only boxed former MMA fighters and former NBA star Nate Robinson; this is his first battle against a professional boxer.

Fury is aware of this fact and understands how detrimental a loss to Paul would be to his young career. According to his father and trainer John Fury, Fury (8-0, 4 KOs) has knocked out numerous opponents in sparring sessions, including some heavyweight fighters, and sent one to the hospital.
In a recent interview with the media outlet, the younger Fury backed up those claims.
“I’ve never been a man to speak about sparring sessions,” the boxer told Sky Sports. “I’m dealing with people in the gym on a regular basis that would knock Jake Paul into next week.”
“I will stop him from thinking he can transfer over to professional boxing,” Fury said.
Paul and Fury predictions:
The fight on Sunday pits two unbeaten fighters who, at this point in their careers, would not normally headline a main event.
However, given their celebrity status outside the ring, there is a lot of buzz surrounding the fight. Paul is well-known for his rise to fame on YouTube, whereas Fury is the younger brother of Tyson Fury, the two-time World Boxing Heavyweight Champion.
Because of the inexperience on both sides, it’s difficult to predict who will win, but Paul is currently the favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook.
This is most likely because Paul has fought in a number of high-profile fights, whereas this is easily Fury’s most notable event.
When comparing each boxer’s previous results, Paul has a slightly higher mark. Tommy Fury is the underdog against Jake Paul at DraftKings Betting. It supports Paul and if the prediction of DraftKings Sportsbook wins, you will receive $150 in bonus bets.
Despite the influencer receiving harsh criticism from many established boxing figures, Tyson has previously been all praise for Paul’s success in the ring.
The goal of Fury’s campaign to disprove Paul as a fighter is to put an end to Paul’s brief career in the sport. Fury has four shutdowns in eight fights, but he has a slight height and reaches an advantage over Paul. With so little separating these two fighters, our experts favor the underdog.

With Fury bearing the brunt of the responsibility for both cancellations, Paul was doubtful that ‘TNT’ would back out for the third time.
However, the fight appears to be on after both parties successfully weighed in yesterday. Paul, who is undefeated in six professional fights, predicted when the fight would end.
In a recent Instagram video, ‘The Problem Child’ declared his intention to end Fury’s career, saying:
“Tommy, I hope you’ve enjoyed these last few moments of your career. This is it. You’re going to be retired from boxing after this, you’re gonna be disowned by your family, and you’re gonna go back to your mother’s maiden name… You have four rounds and then you are f**ked. Tommy Fury. This is it for you.”
Jake Paul says that, His act is up. Uncle Mike at the ending tho. The Instagram posts reads,

The script, which appears to be from “Troop Boxing Promotions,” reads:
“In the final round, Paul lands a huge right hand that sends Fury crashing to the canvas… The ringside doctor rushes in to check on Fury, but he waves him away. Tommy shall then act out an eye injury that forces the referee to call off the fight, declaring Jake Paul the winner by TKO.”
