Tommy Fury to headline first Pay Per View in the United Kingdom
Tyson Fury’s brother Tommy Fury will headline his first ever Pay Per View when the novice fighter faces a YouTuber across the pond in the United States.
On Saturday 18 December BT Sport Box Office will broadcast Fury’s eagerly anticipated fight against Jake Paul exclusively live in the UK.
After a war of words spanning several months, the pair will finally get to meet in the ring live from the Amalie Arena, Tampa, Florida.
Jake and Tommy have been embroiled in a feud this year, which started when big brother and heavyweight world champion, Tyson Fury, called on Jake to fight Tommy.
The two fighters will finally get a chance to settle their differences during the pay-per-view fight in December.
Promoter Frank Warren said “I am delighted to deliver this fight and this event to BT Sport Box Office. I think we’re going to see something very special.
Both fighters wanted it so we made it happen. Jake Paul has talked the talk and if he can’t walk the walk, then he won’t be in that ring very long with Tommy.”
Both fighters appeared on the same BT Sport Box Office card back in August, as Paul beat former UFC champion Tyron Woodley on points to claim his fourth professional boxing win.
Paul is unbeaten in his professional boxing career having also recorded knockout victories against fellow YouTuber, AnEsonGib, former NBA player, Nate Robinson, and former UFC fighter, Ben Askren, in his first three bouts.
Fury, the youngest brother of WBC heavyweight champion Tyson, beat Paul’s sparring partner Anthony Taylor with relative ease on the undercard to take his professional record to 7-0, with four wins coming by way of knockout.
Titled #PaulFury: One Will Fall, the event is produced and presented by Most Valuable Promotions and SHOWTIME PPV and promoted in association with Tony and Bryce Holden of Holden Productions.
The pay-per-view event is produced and distributed by SHOWTIME PPV in the United States, and will feature other exciting high-stakes, professional boxing matches which will be announced in the coming weeks.
