Jake Paul made an effort to save his bout with Tommy Fury, but it eventually fell through due to Fury’s difficulties in obtaining entry into the United States. As a result, Jake opted to move on from the proposed match. However, the fight is now scheduled to take place in Saudi Arabia. As the much-anticipated event approaches, it appears that Tyson Fury has placed a significant bet on his brother Tommy defeating Jake Paul.
Paul would then make it clear he still wants to face Tommy Fury in the future. Thankfully, that turned out to be true as the two will be duking it each other on February 26 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
According to the latest betting lines from Betting Insider Journal, ‘The Problem Child’ Jake Paul is the favorite for the upcoming bout, with odds of -150. In contrast, his 23-year-old British opponent Tommy Fury is the underdog with odds of +120.
While speaking with iFL TV, ‘The Gypsy King’ Tyson Fury revealed that placed a £100,000 bet on the outcome of the fight, with his brother Tommy Fury coming out as the victor.
“Tommy knocks out 90 percent of people that he spars with or drops them at least, so he’s a very hard puncher and Jake will find that out tomorrow… I’ve got 100 racks on it for an inside the distance stoppage, so if he loses, then I’ll lose 100 bags as well. I’ve got him at 3-1.
I know Tommy is going to knock him out. What is a little bit stupid is I see all these experts and professional boxers picking Jake Paul over Tommy… I think Tommy can get him out of there whenever really. It’ll definitely be inside the distance and it won’t be a points job for sure. Tommy wins by knockout.”
We’ll have to see whether The Problem Child will be destroying Tommy Fury, as fans are certainly excited about the upcoming boxing match. After all, a lot of money is now riding on the outcome of the fight.
