Jake Paul will finally take on a professional boxer in Tommy Fury with the mission to go 5-0 at Tampa Bay, Florida on December 18 in a massive main-event scrap. Following a successful fight against Tyron Woodley in August, ‘The Problem Child’ will enter the ring in just under 4 months.

A battle against Tommy Fury means Jake Paul will have to square off against an opponent who will be trained by Tyson Fury. However, ‘The Problem Child’ appears unfazed. After hinting at making Hasbulla his cornerman ahead of the fight, the 24-year-old has confirmed it during his official presser for the Tommy Fury bout.

Jake Paul said, “Yes, it’s confirmed Hasbulla is going to be in the corner, helping with training camp. I had to bring my lethal weapon. It’s Hasbulla vs Tyson Fury. We will see who the better coach is.”

Russian celebrity Hasbulla Magomedov had his shot to fame during Khabib Nurmagomedov‘s prime reign in the UFC. Hasbulla came into the scene as a Khabib-fan. Later, he became a common face in the combat community with his hilarious social media appearances.

He was recently spotted feuding with fellow social media star Abdu Rozik at UFC 267. Per reports, Dana White can officially stage ‘Hasbulla vs Rozik’ under his banner. Meanwhile, Jake Paul’s recent statements have put more light on Hasbulla. And if he corners ‘The Problem Child’ in December, he will clearly be in the picture with Tyson Fury.
