Jake Paul vs Tommy Fury confirmed after multiple cancellations

Jake Paul and Fury, a reality sensation in the UK and the half-brother of heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, were originally scheduled to square off twice. The original battle was supposed to take place in December 2021, however Fury had to cancel due to illness. Tyron Woodley was previously the welterweight champion of the UFC until Paul defeated him in a rematch. The Paul vs. Fury fight scheduled for August 2022 was also cancelled when Fury encountered problems travelling to the United States.

Jake Paul, 26, has four knockouts on his 6-0 pro boxing record. Paul will be facing Fury, a 23-year-old boxer with an 8-0 record, who is by far the most seasoned opponent.

The Saudi Arabian companies Skill Challenge Entertainment Enterprises and Paul’s Most Valuable Promotions, along with Fury’s promoter Queensberry Promotions and Top Rank, will co-produce the Paul vs. Fury card.

“With the consumption of YouTube content per capita in Saudi Arabia remaining one of the highest in the world, the highly anticipated bout featuring one of its most renowned personalities-turned-boxer, Jake Paul, will be amongst the most-viewed events globally,” SCEE chairman Prince Khaled bin Abdulaziz Al Saud said in a statement.
