Jake Paul looks likely to fight Tommy Fury next, according to Matchroom Boxing promoter Eddie Hearn.
Paul recently confirmed that he is set to return to the ring on August 13. With that being said, an opponent is yet to be confirmed.
Jake Paul Set for Tommy Fury Clash?
The likes of Anderson Silva, Floyd Mayweather and Michael Bisping were all rumoured to be next in line for Jake.
Both Paul and Fury were supposed to go head-to-head back in December of 2021. However, Tommy was forced to withdraw.
Instead, Paul went on to rematch former UFC champion Tyron Woodley. On that night, Jake would go on to knock the former MMA star out in the sixth round.
Speaking to TalkSPORT, Eddie Hearn said: “I don’t represent them, but I hear that fight [Paul vs Fury] is happening Aug. 13, so you might see it. Both are very limited, but as long as it’s a competitive fight, it doesn’t really matter.”
Currently 8-0 as a professional boxer, it’s fair to say that Tommy will cause Paul some serious problems inside the ring.
Fury is coming off of a points victory over Daniel Bocianski back in April. As for ‘The Problem Child,’ Paul hasn’t fought since his KO victory against Woodley back in December.
So far, Paul is yet to face a real professional boxer. Jake has fought AnEsonGib, Nate Robinson, Ben Askren and Woodley.
Therefore, a win over Fury will no doubt be Paul’s most impressive win to date. Even though a venue is yet to be confirmed, it’s looking more likely that both Paul and Fury will finally face off.
‘The Problem Child’ will be itching to prove his doubters wrong, whilst Fury will look to put an end to Jake’s hype.
