Speaking with Balls for one of our regular chats - in association with Ladbrokes - Jason Quigley gave his thoughts on the boxing pursuits of Jake Paul, and his fight with Tommy Fury in Saudi Arabia this Sunday.

The fight comes with particular intrigue as it is the first bout where Paul will face a professional boxer and not an MMA star, ex-basketball player, or YouTuber.

Many in the boxing community have derided Paul, but Quigley has given him his dues, with particular reference to the money he generates for fighters on his cards.

But I was watching the press conference and at one stage I just turned around, and I says fair play to Jake Paul like, you know, for coming from the Disney channel.

And I've seen a thing recently on social media as well, Tommy Fury four years ago, whacking the pads and then Jake Paul doing like this Tiktok dance or something.

You gotta put your hands together for him and give him a well done for the way that he has promoted himself, the way he has generated so much money in the sport of boxing.

A lot of people, yes, are against it and you know, I think it's disrespectful to boxing, but at the end of today, boxing is a business and that's exactly what Jay Paul is doing.

But the most important thing about it is he's given back to the fighters that he's putting on his cards.

Amanda Serrano, all these people that have fought on his cards, some of them have made more money fighting on his under card than they have in their whole career. But this is a very, very interesting, I'm excited for this one.

"I do think it's gonna be a difficult fight," continued Quigley when asked about the outcome of Sunday's bout.


"I think, you know, I'm really on the fence, I'm not gonna sit on the fence, I'm on the fence, but I'm not gonna sit on it.

"So whenever I, whenever I look at everything and round everything up, you know, I have to go with I have to go with Tommy Fury because he is the legitimate boxer.

"Jake has never been in in this environment before in terms of being in the ring with somebody that actually knows boxing and has done from day one and not only that the family that Tommy Fury is from, you know, he has something about him."
