Jake Paul vs Tommy Fury Odds

Whether you are a hardcore boxing fan and think this fight is a joke, or a casual that can’t wait to see it finally happen, this fight certainly holds some intrigue either way.

YouTube sensation Jake Paul has fought six times and is unbeaten, fighting a litany of other YouTube stars and ex professional sportsmen.

Now, he finally steps up to fight an actual boxer and many are actually giving him a chance.

That stems from the fact that Tommy Fury’s (8-0) career has arguably been less impressive than Paul’s.

The Englishman hasn’t fought anyone of note and has only fought two six rounders himself.

Like it or loathe it, you will be be watching it in some capacity on February 26th.
