Jake Paul vs. Tommy Fury Current Odds
Fight Preview: Jake Paul
If there’s a man who knows how to trash-talk the life out of a fight, it’s this man. You only need to take one look at any of Jake Paul’s social media accounts to see his aggression and motivations ahead of this one.
Jake Paul has every reason to head into this fight full of confidence. Not only will he feel the mental upper-hand after two cancelled fights from the Fury camp, but he has a pretty good track record in the ring.
Paul enters this fight following the defeat of former MMA champion Anderson Silva back in October. Yes, this is Paul’s first fight against a professional boxer. But that won’t dampen his spirits.
Jake Paul’s career record is 6-0, with four knockouts. If he beats Fury on Sunday, the WBC president has confirmed that Paul will be added to their cruiserweight rankings. Extra motivation for Jake Paul – as if that was even needed?
Fight Preview: Tommy Fury
Fury is the underdog heading into the fight. But don’t underestimate his credentials. He is 8-0 in his career and, some may forget, he’s the one with the experience in the sport. He won’t be lacking in confidence either.
With legendary boxer Tyson Fury helping to prepare and hype Tommy for Sunday, he is in safe and strong hands.
Interestingly, Fury has never competed in a fight longer than six rounds. With a ten-round fight scheduled for Sunday, it will be a true test of Fury’s stamina and engine.
Jake Paul vs. Tommy Fury Betting Predictions
Yes, Jake Paul has the edge over Tommy Fury both in the betting markets and in terms of fanbase. However, people are quick to forget that Tommy Fury has been a professional boxer far longer than Jake Paul has even been involved in the sport.
The fight is extremely hard to predict. And this means turning to experience when in doubt. Tommy Fury has experience on his side and the value definitely lies with the man from the United Kingdom.
