Paul and Fury will finally be able to settle their dispute on Sunday night in Saudi Arabia after it was postponed a third time. Fury, who hails from a fighting family and has been boxing since he was a youngster, has eight victories to his credit in eight professional fights, including four knockouts. While Fury faced arguably more formidable opposition, such as former UFC champions Tyron Woodley and Anderson Silva, Paul amassed a 6-0 record with four knockouts.
It took far too long, but Paul is now finally squaring off against Fury, a legitimate pro boxer. Paul has faced former MMA and NBA players instead of boxers, which has been widely criticized, but this feels like a step back for him. Fury shares the same last name as his half-brothers Hughie and Tyson, but he is just as different from their class.
Paul and Fury don’t really differ all that much. After making his professional debut, Fury went on to feature in the reality series Love Island before picking up where he left off. He may have the appearance of a boxer, but his performances haven’t exactly been stellar. His victory over Daniel Bocianski in April of last year was the second time he faced an opponent with a winning record; the other half of his fights have been against opponents with no professional victories.
If we take a look at Jake Paul, the social media personality has a 66.6% knockout rate and fights last an average of 4.3 rounds. Paul is gaining boxing instincts and displaying a lot of variety as evidenced by his decision victory over Anderson Silva last year. He is very close to being the first amateur boxer to be defeated.
Despite this, Fury is the boxer with traditional training, which gives him an advantage and keeps the fight tight. The native of Manchester has a 50% knockout percentage and his fights last three rounds on average. This will be Fury’s first eight-round battle, according to the schedule. He has a long, stiff jab that can hurt Paul from a distance, but there are still concerns about his conditioning and punching strength.
