The two rivals meet in Saudi Arabia on Sunday night.
Some boxing fans will be quick to dimiss the legitimacy of Jake Paul’s fight with Tommy Fury, but there is no denying that it is one of the biggest boxing events of 2023.
After two cancellations, it looked like the two rivals would never go head-to-head inside the ring, but now Paul and Fury have weighed in ahead of their clash in Saudi Arabia on Sunday night.
There is plenty of pressure resting on the shoulders of both men. For Paul, it’s chance to prove that he can actually match the ability of an active professional boxer, while Fury is looking to do his family and WBC world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury proud.
In addition to personal pride, a win for either fighter would earn them a WBC world ranking within the the organisation’s top 40 cruiserweights which could be the start needed to make a push for a world title shot.
