384

Jake Paul’s upcoming boxing match against Tommy Fury is more than just settling a score; it’s a strategic move in Paul’s plan that could result in a lucrative rematch in a different combat sport.

The YouTuber-turned-boxer has his sights set on a potential third showdown with Fury, but this time, it’s in the MMA cage. However, there’s a catch: Paul must first emerge victorious in the boxing ring when they face off on March 2 to activate this clause.

According to Paul’s business partner, Nakisa Bidarian, if Paul secures the win in the boxing match, it sets the stage for a third encounter this time in the SmartCage under the Professional Fighters League (PFL) banner.

Bidarian revealed to ESPN that Paul has extended the offer to Fury, promising another substantial payday close to eight figures for the MMA bout. With potential earnings totaling around $20 million for both fights combined, it’s a tantalizing proposition for both fighters.

Jake Paul’s upcoming boxing match against Tommy Fury is more than just settling a score; it’s a strategic move in Paul’s plan that could result in a lucrative rematch in a different combat sport.

The forthcoming boxing rematch is scheduled more than twelve months following Jake Paul’s close loss to Fury in February of 2023, marking a significant passage of time since their previous encounter.

Since then, Paul has been honing his skills, securing wins against formidable opponents like Nate Diaz and Andre August, amassing an impressive 8-1 record in boxing, including five knockouts.

Despite the financial incentives and the allure of a potential MMA bout, Paul remains focused on his ultimate goal becoming a world champion. He sees this rematch as a stepping stone towards achieving that ambition, asserting his dominance in the ring and keeping his eyes firmly set on the prize.

As the anticipation builds for their upcoming clash, the stakes are higher than ever for Jake Paul and Tommy Fury. 

Beyond settling their rivalry in the boxing ring, the outcome of this bout could pave the way for a seismic rematch in the MMA arena, setting the stage for another chapter in their compelling saga.
