Jake Paul Offers $20 Million Two-Fight Deal To Tommy Fury, Featuring MMA Showdown

Jake Paul has offered Tommy Fury a rematch, with a potential MMA bout, worth $20 million.

Paul suffered his only boxing defeat to Fury in a split decision. Jake did better than some had expected since it was his first fight against a pro boxer. He dropped Fury with his jab, winning on one scorecard. After the loss, Paul faced another MMA fighter, Nate Diaz, as he won a unanimous decision. The Problem Child then switched his focus back to professional fighters. He faced Andre August on December 15 last year and secured a clean first-round knockout victory. Paul announced his next fight against former Golden Gloves Winner Ryan Bourland, set for March 2.

“I’ve always said my goal is to become a world champion. I beat a pro boxer in December in the first round, someone who’s been boxing their entire life, and what did I do next? I went straight back to camp to get ready to face my next opponent, a professional boxer who has twice as many professional fights under his belt than I do. It’s a new year, it’s an even better me, and I’m facing an even more experienced, seasoned boxer,” Paul revealed

But Paul has Fury in his sights as he seeks to avenge that defeat. 

“He’s willing to fight him in boxing and if Jake wins, he’s willing to enter the SmartCage in the PFL with Tommy. There’s a path there where it’s $20million in guaranteed money,” Nakisa Bidarain (Paul’s business partner) said 

Fury has not responded to the offer, but the sum will be a career-high payday. After having fought KSI, Fury may not get too many other chances to secure a lucrative amount.
