In his last fight in December, Fury was to be Paul’s opponent. After suffering a fractured rib, Fury was forced out and replaced by former UFC champion Tyron Woodley.
That fight was a replay of the earlier competition between the two. Paul put up an exclamation mark for his second meeting by beating Woodley in spectacular fashion in the sixth round.
But since then – and even before then – people have been begging Paul to fight a “real” boxer. Up to this point, Paul has faced a mix of YouTubers and former MMA fighters. 8-0 As an up-and-coming fighter, Fury is designed to be a “real” boxer and represents Paul’s toughest test in the ring to date.

Who is Jake Paul?
You probably know about Paul, the social media personality who made it big on Vine before moving to every existing platform. He has moved on to boxing in recent years after battling the YouTuber KSI with his brother, Logan Paul, in the undercard of his viral boxing match. He showed talent in boxing and has been fighting ever since.
Paul went on to campaign, co-promoting the big fight between Ireland’s Katie Taylor and Amanda Serrano, one of the all-time women’s boxing matches.
Paul seems to be gaining the public’s understanding of his boxing career and has posted quite a self-aware (and funny) ticktack about his upcoming fight with Fury.
