Jake Paul vs. Tommy Fury: Date of the fight, how to watch online, press conference
Buckle up, it looks like the Jake Paul vs. Tommy Fury fight is finally happening.
Jake Paul andofficially announced the news on social media.
The fight must take place in New York at Madison Square Garden on August 6 and will be co-headlined by Amanda Serrano and Brenda Carabajal. Tickets go on sale June 29 at 11 a.m. EST.
Fury was supposed to be Paul’s opponent in his last fight, which was to take place in December. After suffering a broken rib, Fury was forced to retire and was replaced by former UFC champion Tyron Woodley.
This fight was a rematch of a previous contest between the two. Paul put an exclamation point in their second meeting, knocking out Woodley in spectacular fashion in the sixth round.
But since then – and before that – people have been begging Paul to fight a “real” boxer. So far, Paul has faced a mix of YouTubers and MMA veterans. As a promising 8-0 fighter, Fury is built to be that “true” boxer and will quite possibly pose Paul’s toughest test in the ring to date.
Who is Tommy Fury?
Fury is a young professional boxer with a famous last name. He is the half-brother of current heavyweight champion Tyson Fury. He is also famous in the UK for starring in Love Island, a reality TV show where contestants have to pair up to avoid elimination. The show is huge in the UK.
Who is Jacques-Paul?
You probably know Paul, the social media personality who first made it big on Vine before moving to every platform out there. He switched to boxing in recent years after fighting on the undercard of his brother Logan Paul’s viral boxing match with British YouTuber KSI. He showed a talent for boxing and has been fighting ever since.
Paul also moved on to the promotion, co-promoting a huge fight between Irishman Katie Taylor and Amanda Serrano that was one of the greatest women’s boxing matches of all time.
Paul seems to have the public’s perception of his boxing career and posted a pretty conscious (and funny) TikTok about his upcoming fight with Fury.
you bullied me into this…not cool.
