Jake Paul Vs. Tommy Fury Scheduled For December, Paul To Get ‘Serious Life Lesson’

Jake Paul is stepping in the ring with who could be his toughest opponent yet.

The YouTuber-turned-boxer will face Tommy Fury, the half-brother of WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, in a pay-per-view event on December 18 in Tampa, Florida.

“I’m looking forward to my toughest challenge yet and continuing to prove the critics wrong,” Paul said. “’Fight a real boxer,’ they’ve said, and that is exactly what I’m doing. An undefeated boxer from the legendary Fury bloodline.

Fury (7-0, 4 KOs) is the first legitimate boxer Paul (4-0, 3 KOs) will face.

Paul’s last opponents include: Ali Eson Gib, a YouTuber he TKO’d; Nate Robinson, an ex-professional basketball player he knocked out; Ben Askren, a mixed martial artist he TKO’d and Tyron Woodley, a former UFC champion he defeated by split decision.

Fury is a reality television star in the UK, but has a reported 12 amateur fights and seven pro fights background in boxing. The younger Fury is six-feet tall and weighs around 180 pounds to Paul’s 6’1” height and 190 weight.

“Jake Paul is about to learn a serious life lesson,” Fury said. “This is my world, and he doesn’t belong here. I’m not one of these MMA men or basketball players. I have been boxing my whole life.”
