Boxing Profile: Jake Paul 4-0
JP has won all four of his boxing matches, including beating Tyrone Woodley via split-decision on August 29 this year. Paul’s claim to fame is as a YouTuber.
However, he’s knocked out 3 of his 4 opponents. Woodley, a former UFC middleweight champion and MMA artist trained in boxing, is the only to stand toe-to-toe with Jake and not go down.
With every fight Jake Paul has gotten better, which is one of the reasons his team feels comfortable putting him into the ring versus a professional boxer.
Boxing Profile: Tommy Fury 7-0
Although not as flashy as his older brother Tommy Fury has made a name for himself in just 7 boxing matches. Fury has knocked out 4 of his opponents.
Without a doubt, Jake Paul is the toughest boxer Fury has ever faced. Tommy started his career by beating an opponent with 102 losses. He then beat a couple of boxers in a row with 26 losses.
Anthony Taylor, Fury’s last opponent, was in just his second professional boxing match.
Why is Fury the opening line favorite?
A case can be made that Fury has more experience. Based on how many fights both men have had, it’s only a possible case to make.
Fury hasn’t fought anyone with ability. Boxers that continue to fight after 20 losses, much less 100 losses, step into the ring to pick up a paycheck. Those fighters aren’t even trying to win.
Some could say Jordan Grant, whom Fury beat in his sixth fight, has some talent because he was 2-0 before taking on Tommy, but let’s be frank. Grant has no power.
For the first time in his career Fury fights someone who can knock him out with a single punch. Say what you want about Jake Paul, but one thing is for sure, the dude can throw a power punch.
So why is Tommy Fury favored? The thinking must be that brother Tyson will train him up for this bout.
No matter if it happens or not, right now, about a month before the fight, Jake Paul is an overlay at +105.
