Just when the boxing enthusiasts thought that exemplary encounters for this year were almost over, Jake Paul and Tommy Fury sent shock waves all around with their fight announcement. The young guns will lock horns on December 18 at Amalie Arena in Tampa. This fight is exciting in its own way, but it became even more interesting after Tyson Fury’s involvement.
‘The Gypsy King’ will be ringside for this fight, and he’ll also be ‘TNT’s trainer for this contest. Recently, Fury, who was in a chat with Boxing Lowdown, issued a fiery statement to warn ‘The Problem Child’ about his brother.
“I think Tommy Fury lays Jake Paul out cold – stretcher job, on oxygen and all that. A proper unconscious knockout. It’s one thing playing around at boxing, but when you’re messing with a dynamite KO king like him, you’re in for serious trouble,” he said. (h/t Michael Benson)
Fury is pretty optimistic about his brother beating the YouTuber-turned boxer in his biggest boxing outing. A confrontation between these two, inside the boxing ring, was extremely vital, as fans have been demanding Jake Paul to face someone from the pro-boxing circuit.
Paul has many rivals who are top-notch pro-boxers, but at this stage, Tommy Fury fits in as a perfect opponent for ‘The Problem Child’. This is because both of them are undefeated and are keen to display a stellar track record. But one among these two will probably end up capitulating to his first loss on December 18.
Jake Paul vs Tommy Fury – Who holds an edge in this fight?
In this fight, ‘TNT’ will have an undeniable advantage because he has only faced pro-boxing opponents until now.
On the other hand, Jake Paul has only battled retired athletes (Nate Robinson) and fighters out of their prime (Ben Askren and Tyron Woodley).
Hence, ‘The Problem Child’ has a point to prove to the world. However, Fury will be under pressure as a defeat to a celebrity boxer would be cataclysmic.
