This Sunday in Saudi Arabia, Jake Paul and Tommy Fury will enter the ring, putting their honor and undefeated records at stake.
Jake Paul’s YouTube celebrity status continues to deliver solid pay-per-view buys, and that trend will likely last as long as his winning streak. A Paul loss on points will not satisfy boxing fans, however.
People want to see Jake Paul get his head knocked off on live TV, and there is a solid chance that can happen this weekend. Why?
Paul is facing a real boxer for the first time. Tommy Fury is the brother of heavyweight legend Tyson Fury who is arguably this era’s greatest fighter.
Unfortunately, boxing betting sites are siding with Paul, granting him a moderate advantage in the moneyline odds to win.
