Jake Paul-Tommy Fury live tracker: Blow-by-blow updates, highlights and analysis
In his seventh pro fight on Sunday (2pm ET, ESPN+ PPV), Jake Paul (6-0, 4 KOs) will finally face his first real boxer as an opponent. How legit pro Tommy Fury (8-0, 4 KOs) is is questionable, but the bout drew attention with a protracted buildup and Paul’s stellar power grabbing headlines.
Paul’s professional boxing career began with a knockout of fellow YouTuber Ali Eson Gib, who was also making his professional boxing debut, and then a second-round knockout of retired NBA player Nate Robinson in Robinson’s professional boxing debut. Paul followed up those victories with victories over three MMA fighters (with two fights against former UFC champion Tyron Woodley). His last fight was a victory over 47-year-old Anderson Silva.
Fury, half-brother of outright heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, has a boxing resume littered with tomato cans. According to Sportzshala Sports’ Kevin Iole, this fight is defined by one number: 24-176-5.
This is Fury’s record of eight opponents before Paul.
