Tommy Fury and Jake Paul have both been at each other in a virtual fight on social media. Paul called Fury a "drunken pirate" a year ago and Fury qualified Paul as being "useless".
For the first time in both men's boxing career, they will face each other in a 10 round fight.
He's boxing career started in 2020 and he is yet to lose a single fight. He has an unbeaten record of 6-0 (6 wins 0 defeats). Jake Paul's last fight was back in October 2022 against Brazilian retired UFC fighter Anderson Silva. The American YouTuber won by unanimous decisions on points.
He is coming into this fight with a lot of confidence and if we believe what he says, it will be an easy win for him. The 'Problem Child' stated in a press conference:
He's fought taxi drivers, he has no chin, it's all a joke. I'm ending you February 26th and you already know it.
On top of that, he is well prepared to face Tommy Fury and is quite relaxed, not nervous at all about fighting him. Moreover, Paul even proposed a 'double or nothing deal' in which he would pay Fury double if he managed to beat him. He also said: "He doesn't have the power to stop me" while mentioning that deal.

- Just like his opponent, Tyson Fury's brother is on an unbeaten run as well. With a record of 3-0, Fury also never lost a single fight in his career. However, on Sunday one of these two men will lose their undefeated in record.
The last fight for Fury was against Polish boxer Daniel Bocianski back in April of last year in Wembley stadium. Fury won by 60-54 on points.
The British fighter is just as confident as Paul. He is sure that Jake Paul will never be able to stop him. He has often criticized his American opponent stating once:
Boxing is about skill and class and this man doesn't have any of it and I have a lot of it, and I'm going to bring him to school on Sunday.
In all of his quotes to media, Fury also insisted that "Jake Paul will never fight again".
This boxing event has clearly caught the eye of millions and millions of people and Jake Paul even announced that Portuguese football star Critiano Ronaldo, currently playing in Saudi Arabia, will attend the fight Diriyah.
This fight on Sunday is set to be a spectacular show between two fighters who have been ranting at each other for two years. 'The Truth' will reveal who is the best of these fighters and who will walk away with the WBC.
