After months of taking shots at each other, Jake Paul and Tommy Fury finally touched gloves last night. The two men put on an exciting and close bout that saw Tommy Fury walk away victorious with a split decision. Although many fans may not agree with the result, the judge’s decision ain’t changing anytime soon. For now, Jake is no longer undefeated and he will have to think about what he wants to do next with regard to his boxing career.
Prior to their showdown, Jake made an interesting bet with Fury where he said he would double Tommy’s earnings if he won. On the other hand, if Jake won, then Tommy would walk away with nothing. Despite losing this bet, fans will be surprised to learn how much the YouTube star made from his main event bout.
DJ Akademiks posted a video on Instagram where he revealed that Jake Paul made $30 million from his fight with Tommy Fury. Despite the loss, Jake will rest peacefully knowing that he made a whole lot of money from just one night’s work.
The PPV buys for the fight were quite strong which is what led to the massive earnings. However, it remains to be seen if he will continue to be a big draw following this loss.
Tommy Fury’s career, on the other hand, will receive a massive boost following this victory. This could very well be the start of a long undefeated streak in boxing. He also has the right type of guidance to reach the upper echelons of this sport. Until then, stay tuned to Thirsty For News.
