The Ohio native recently shared a post on Instagram that could possibly make Tommy Fury a bit nervous to face the YouTube star. Paul revealed a set of pictures that show and prove that he has already kicked off his training camp and that he has been training for the past seven weeks.

To show contrast, Paul also uploaded pictures of Tommy Fury smoking a cigar, banging his chest in a club, and eating doughnuts.

I was secretly in camp for 7 weeks before Tommy signed the contract while he was at the club partying, smoking cigars at his brothers fight, and eating Krispy Kreme’s on cute dates with Molly. For the first time in my career, the oddsmakers made me the underdog for this fight. I LOVE IT.

I’ve been the underdog my whole life. Always been counted out. Always had the uphill battle. All of my opponents have cut corners and taken me lightly. By this time it’s too late to make changes to try and beat me 🙂 Good luck Tommy. December 18th your career is over,” wrote Jake Paul.

Jake Paul just added another name to his hit list

The age of celebrity boxing has now entered its second wave. It has now become bigger than ever before as NBA-all-star Deron Williams is now all set to make his official boxing debut. Sources have now confirmed that Williams is signed to compete on the undercard of the Dec. 18 Showtime pay-per-view event headlined by Jake Paul vs. Tommy Fury.

However, just Deron Williams’ debut is not what makes this fight special. He is reportedly matched up to fight NFL veteran Frank Gore, who is not a stranger to the sport of boxing.

Moreover, earlier this year, Gore made a permanent switch to boxing; this is evident as multiple NFL teams with open RB positions have already reached out to the five-time pro-bowler; however, he has declined those offers and is still uncertain if that is the direction he wants to move in.

This fight between Gore and Williams is not officially confirmed yet; however, it seems this is the next step for both veterans of the NFL and NBA.

However, judging by Paul’s commitment to putting up big lucrative fights that entertain all sections of his audience, is this a fight that would really interest fans, especially those not living in the United States?

For now, ‘The Problem Child’ is already several weeks into his training camp for his December fight against 7-0 pro boxer Tommy Fury. What do you make of this fight and Jake Paul’s plans for the future?
