Later this month, the stage could be set for a future showdown between Youtube star Jake Paul (3-0, 3 KOs) and undefeated candidate Tommy Fury (6-0, 4 KOs).
On August 29th, Showtime is hosting a pay-per-view event at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse in Cleveland with both fighters on the map.
Paul will headline his fourth professional match against former UFC Champion Tyron Woodley.
And upon opening the pay-per-view portion of the card, Fury will meet martial arts veteran Anthony Taylor, who happens to be Paul’s sparring partner.
Should Paul and Fury win their respective fights, there is a strong possibility that they will collide in the future.
In the past few months, Paul and Fury have exchanged a lot of harsh words – and some verbal stitches have been very personal.
Fury promised to make him pay for every bad word he ever said.
“I’m thick-skinned. I’m a professional athlete. These guys aren’t. These guys play on the internet and run around to make a living. I fight hard for a living. I’ll let my fists do the talking. For every bad thing that he said he’ll get a quick right hand for it, “Fury told Sky Sports.
“I’ll break every bone in his face. You don’t bring people’s loves in with you. It’s a fight. It has nothing to do with them, let them out of there. “
Fury admits his upcoming US debut is part of Showtime’s plan to build a fight with Paul.
“They do it to build the fight. I’m here and I want the fight. I’ll pick it up right now. The ball is his. It always has been. He’s the one who controls everything. Either yay or no” said Fury.
“I’m over talking. Let’s get it dressed. Let’s get it to bed. Enough social media chat he loves. Let’s get in the ring and fight. Stop making excuses and make the next one.” Battle!”
