Jake Paul and Tommy Fury are finally set to square off in a much-anticipated boxing match, taking place in Saudi Arabia on Sunday, February 26th. Paul, a controversial YouTube star, has a record of 6-0 with 4 knockouts, whereas Fury, a member of the fighting family of Furys, has a record of 8-0 with 4 knockouts. This is a grudge match between two undefeated boxing prospects, and both sides have a point to prove.
Despite Paul's lack of boxing experience, he has beaten Anderson Silva and is considered the favorite to win. In contrast, Fury has a more extensive boxing background and has been fighting since he was 12 years old. While Fury's opponents may not have had a great record, he has the skills to challenge Paul.
Paul has the power advantage over Fury, who has the speed edge. Paul is also bigger than Fury, with the latter being labeled as a light heavyweight.
Paul has been favored to win leading up to the fight. At FanDuel, Paul is at -138 straight up, +220 on points, and +280 to win by knockout. On the other hand, Fury is a +108 underdog, +230 by KO, and +480 on points.
As a British journalist, I believe that, although Fury has a chance to win, Paul is more likely to come out on top. As such, my bet is on Paul winning by knockout. For those who prefer technically advanced fights, they can watch Puerto Rican super lightweight Subriel Matias (18-1, 18 KOs) take on Jeremias Ponce (30-0, 20 KOs) on Showtime this Saturday.
Matias is favored to win by knockout, and my favorite bet on the board is Matias by knockout, which I got at -160 on FanDuel. For those who think the fight will last longer, Matias in rounds 7-12 is available at around +180.
All in all, it should be a great fight. Whether you're betting on Paul or Fury, the fight offers the chance to analyze and predict the outcome.
