Both Paul and Fury have exchanged some fiery words with each other and have even challenged each other to a pro-boxing bout. However, there’s no new progress to this fight.

Recently, Fury’s father and one highly debatable boxing personality, John Fury, praised Jake Paul and shed some light on his situation with Tommy Fury.

In an exclusive interaction with BT Sport Boxing, he said, “I could actually like that kid. Because that 22-year-old is showing fantastic mindset on business brain. Calculated words, you don’t see him in kids at 22 today, do you, so you know what, I do like that kid, I really do.”

“But can he beat Tommy? Definitely not. What I see in him, behind his words of bravado, is fear and nothing.”

Not only John Fury, but countless renowned names in boxing have praised Jake Paul for what he’s doing for the sport. He, until now, has made the most out of his fight marketing skills, and with time, the fans can only expect him to get better with the same.

Also, his fate in the boxing world ahead will rely heavily on how he fares in his Sunday night fight with the former UFC star, Tyron Woodley.
