YouTube star Jake Paul is lacing up his boxing gloves once again, this time for a long-awaited fight against professional boxer Tommy Fury.
Now boasting a 6-0 record with four knockouts, the boxing world is starting to take Paul seriously. His most recent win against UFC legend Anderson Silva confirmed that Paul can be dangerous in the ring, and a win against Fury today would be another step toward legitimacy as a professional boxer. Plus, viewers of Paul vs. Fury will also get a WBC cruiserweight title fight between Ilunga Makabu and Badou Jack to sweeten the deal.

When Is Paul vs. Fury? Date, Time, Location

Paul vs. Fury Odds, Undercard
Though Fury (8-0, 4 KOs) has more fights under his belt than Paul (6-0 with four KOs), oddsmakers are giving Paul a very slight edge over the Englishman. As of writing, DraftKings has Paul at -180 to win against Fury’s +140. But those odds are very nearly 50/50.
Jake “the Problem Child” Paul has continually surprised the boxing world by beating continuously more experienced opponents. His most recent win over Anderson Silva was a milestone in the YouTuber’s boxing career, proving that he can take down one of the UFC’s most dominant fighters. Before the Silva fight, Paul had begun his path to legitimacy by beating former UFC Welterweight Champion Tyron Woodley twice in a row.
Despite the odds, “TNT” Fury is confident that he will not only beat Paul but put a stop to the internet personality’s boxing career entirely. “I’m ready to deal with this man,” Fury told Sky Sports, “this is a public service announcement going out for everybody, this man won’t box again, this will be the last time you see Jake Paul in the ring against a true professional anyway.”
Fury, whose brother Tyson is considered one of the best active boxers in the world, began his pro career back in 2018. Since then, besides racking up eight wins, the younger Fury gained some fame as a contestant on the dating reality show Love Island in 2019.
Today’s event will also see Ilunga Makabu and Badou Jack fighting for the WBC cruiserweight title — a headline-worthy fight in its own right — before Paul vs. Fury.
