Half-brother of world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, Tommy Fury will face Jake Paul on December 18 in Florida. The YouTuber will thus be opposed to his first “real” boxer, even if the Englishman is not very experienced.
The two have been around for several months, and they will finally be able to settle their differences in a ring, in a new fight that will pay off big. Youtuber-turned-boxer Jake Paul will face Tommy Fury, half-brother of WBC world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, on December 18 at Amalie Arena in Tampa Bay, home of local NHL team, the Lightning . After dominating another YouTuber, Briton AnEsonGib, the younger brother of Paul (24), whose eldest, Logan, drew him against Floyd Mayweather during an exhibition, then beat former basketball player Nate Robinson, also a novice in boxing, then ex-MMA champions Ben Askren and Tyron Woodley. We expected moreover a revenge against the latter, who had ended up honoring his bet by being tattooed “I Love Jake Paul” … on the middle finger. But it is therefore his first “real” boxer that the youtubeur will face.
Even if Tommy Fury is very, very far from his half-brother and he is only at the beginning of his career. He was also more talked about outside the rings, especially for his participation in the reality show “Love Island”, where he met his partner, influencer Molly-Mae Hague. And he is regularly in the headlines for his behavior. Like last month, where he left without paying from a Liverpool establishment and ended this apparently very drunken evening dancing topless on the tables. What did not fail to raise his future adversary, who is also no stranger to the slippages. “It’s finally official. Timothy had no choice but to sign the contract so he could finally pay his bill at the bar, buy a T-shirt to go to the nightclub, and stop living on the hook. Molly. And on December 18 in Tampa Bay, I’m going to change the name of this wanker, “Jake Paul wrote on social media, revealing a new bet: Tommy Fury will have to change his name if he ever loses.
Tommy Fury: “He has nothing to do here”
The 22-year-old Englishman, who fought on the same card as Paul and Woodley at the end of August, and had won, again against a very little-referenced opponent (Anthony Taylor), his seventh victory in as many outings, was particularly evident confident in a statement: “Jake Paul is about to receive a real life lesson. This is my world, and it has nothing to do here. I’m not one of those MMA fighters or a basketball player, I’ve boxed my whole life. On December 18th, I’m going to show the world the difference between a YouTuber and a real fighter. “
