This is about the third time the announcement of Jake Paul vs. Tommy Fury has come about. Prior to this, both of the fights got canceled afterward. The 23-year-old was the one who withdrew both times. In 2021, Tommy withdrew from the fight due to his bacterial chest infection and a broken rib.
Then in 2022, again but this time he was denied entry to the U.S. due to his family’s ties with Irish crime boss Daniel Kinahan.

Both of the fighters have undefeated records, and for that reason, it will be interesting to see who’s going to lose their winning streak first. Although the 23-year-old has a lot more pressure than anyone in his corner now. As of recent, his father, John Fury made it clear that if he lose the fight to the social media personailty then he has to quit boxing.
Regardless, the Paul vs. Fury bout will be contested over eight rounds at 185 pounds and will air on ESPN+ and BT Sport.
