Jake Paul vs Tommy Fury 90 Precent Confirmed

Danny Smith, Jake Paul's coach, has been working with the YouTuber-turned-boxer for some time and says that their agreement is final.

Minor issues exist on Fury's end that must be resolved before the bout can be formally publicised.

The battle between American YouTuber Jake Paul and British boxer Tommy Fury looked to be on the horizon, with Jake's coach Danny Smith confirming that the fight is "90%" accepted.

The American boxer has previously confirmed that he will fight at the Madison Square Garden in New York City, alongside experienced Amanda Serrano.

They will both headline a major Showtime pay-per-view event, according to Most Valuable Promotions, with their opponents still to be revealed.

In an interview with the Vegas Insider, Smith said, “I’d probably say that we’re around 90 per cent done but we’re just waiting on their end, We’re good on our end. Whatever particulars that need to be worked out are from their end, that’s what we’re waiting on.”

When asked about Jake’s chances of winning the bout, the coach backed his man to emerge victorious. “It’s going to be really, really good. He’s not a huge puncher, but decent, with the right hand he is pretty decent. I think that it’s a really, really good step up for both guys to be honest. The reason I’m picking Jake to beat Tommy is that Jake has more of a dog mentality, the bigger puncher, and he’s willing to trade,” Smith said.

After completing four fights within 13 months (November 2020-December 2021), Paul has taken a long break from the ring.

In his previous bouts, he viciously knocked out NBA star Nate Robinson and MMA world champion Ben Askren. He also defeated Tyron Woodley after a split-decision victory in the pay-per-view bout before taking a break to promote Amanda Serrano.
