Michael Bisping is taking a look at the upcoming boxing match between Jake Paul and Tommy Fury.
One of the most anticipated fights coming up is the boxing match between Jake Paul and Tommy Fury. This fight was a long time coming and over the past year the animosity between these two men has grown. Jake Paul came onto the boxing scene and disrupted the age-old sport. His “celebrity-style” boxing matches have become fan favorites and he has made himself one of the most notable fighters in the sport. Up until this point Paul has faced former MMA fighters and other celebrities. He has caught shade from the fans for lacking opponents with real boxing experience. Now this bout against Fury is set to irradicate that.
Paul and Fury were matched up before but the fight fell through several times. Now, this is as close as they have gotten, with the bout set to happen on Saturday, Feb. 26.
Michael Bisping wants Tommy Fury to win but believes that Jake Paul will take it
Much of the fight community is looking forward to this bout. Like him or hate him, Paul is one of the most talked about fighters in the world. Millions of people tune into his bouts to either see him win or hope to see him lose. So far in his professional career, he has yet to lose. Former UFC champion Michael Bisping believes the streak will continue on Saturday.
“Jake Paul hasn’t fought somebody his own size, but that said, I do think he wins. I think the improvements that he’s been making in the gym will pay off,” he said on YouTube. “I think when you see him, listen, he can clearly punch. That’s a fact, he face-planted Nate Robinson, Ben Askren, and he faced-planted Tyron Woodley as well. That’s not an easy thing to do and whether or not you’re a good boxer, whether or not you’ve got the potential to become a world champion or not, to face plant, knockout, somebody like that requires tremendous power. So he’s clearly got that in spades.”
Bisping is taking into account Paul’s previous fights and the magnitude of his knockout power. Although he thinks the odds are in Paul’s favor, it isn’t stopping him from rooting for his fellow countryman, Fury.
“I hope he gets the job done for the family name, for the flag of Britain, and just because Jake Paul needs knocking down a peg or two, but it’s not going to happen,” he said. “I firmly believe Jake Paul will get the job done and he will be proclaimed the victor and we will have to put up with him for quite some more time talking about fighting Canelo Alvarez, knocking out Mike Tyson, and all the other stuff that he goes on about.”
Jake Paul vs. Tommy Fury will go down on Saturday, Feb. 26 live from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. The bout will be for purchase on ESPN+ PPV in the US and BT Sport Box Office in the UK.
