Odds for Tommy Fury to beat Jake Paul

Jake Paul v Tommy Fury Latest Odds

Tommy Fury and Jake Paul will finally meet in Saudi Arabia, following two previous failed attempts to meet in the ring. The WBC have announced that if Paul wins they will give him a cruiserweight division ranking.

Jake Paul and Tommy Fury will finally face-off in Saudi Arabia on February 26, following two previous failed attempts to meet in the ring.

The fight, billed as “The Truth”, was announced last month, with the pair meeting in the ring before Artur Beterbiev’s cruiserweight world title victory over Anthony Yarde in London. However, Fury was unable to appear at a press conference in Saudi Arabia on February 8, with his partner Molly Mae Hague having recently given birth. The pair have regularly exchanged words over the years, and the fight is being built up as a grudge match.

Fury, 23, who has eight wins from eight as a pro, was scheduled to face YouTuber-turned-boxer Paul on 18 December 2021. However, Fury was forced to pull out of the bout due to a chest infection and a broken rib. Then, in August 2022, Fury withdrew from their rearranged contest, with Visa issues preventing his travel to the USA.

Prior to this he fought Daniel Bocianski on the undercard of his brother Tyson Fury’s WBC and The Ring title fight against Dillian Whyte in April 2022 at Wembley. He defeated Bocianski on points before calling out Paul.

Paul has won the first six bouts of his professional boxing career, against a fellow Youtuber, a former NBA player and three MMA fighters. Fury will be the first fully professional boxer Paul has faced, and will be a massive test of the 26-year-old’s credentials. However, “The Problem Child” has been putting the training in and has progressed as a boxer. Many pundits make him favourite to win, given that his successes have come more recently than Fury’s, and that Fury has had some injuries to contend with.

Paul last fought in November when he claimed a unanimous decision win against former UFC champion Anderson Silva. Light-heavyweight Fury’s last bout was his win over Bocianski in April.

Should Paul be victorious the WBC have stated that he will earn a ranking in the cruiserweight division.

The WBC is one of four major sanctioning bodies in boxing and ranks 40 of the best cruiserweights in the world, where Ilunga Makabu is the current champion. All four bodies have a top 15 of fighters in each ranked division. Each boxer must then pay sanctioning fees to be in the running to challenge for a world title.

The WBC gave the following statement:

“Jake has dedication and respect to the sport and the WBC will not tolerate discrimination against anyone, he deserves the opportunities that any other boxer has,”

“He demonstrated punching power and improved skills as well as a solid chin. Tommy Fury represents a clear challenge to Paul in a battle of two undefeated professional boxers.”
