For a long time now, casual and hardcore boxing lovers have wanted to see Jake Paul go up against stout pro-boxing contenders. That said, ‘The Problem Child’, by aligning himself with Tommy Fury, is on the brink of giving the fans what they wish to see.

Recently, on his own YouTube channel, Paul spoke about Fury and he even made comparisons between the Brit and his last opponent, Tyron Woodley.

Paul said, “I think Tommy Fury is a different style obviously than Tyron, but he definitely doesn’t have as much experience. But to answer that question of do you think Tyron is harder than Tommy, my overall answer is yes.”

Jake Paul entered his last boxing bout against the UFC hard hitter, Tyron Woodley. He began the fight well by striking Woodley with his jabs and right hands in the first few rounds. However, that was as per ‘The Chosen One’s plan as he wanted ‘The Problem Child’ to gas out.

Once that happened, Woodley attacked Paul with some blistering right hands. However, the Ohio native was smart enough to move around the ring and dodge his rival’s shots.

In his fight against Fury, Jake Paul might do the same. However, he will have to be careful of the skillsets of a trained professional puncher.
