Cleveland, Ohio – Jack Paul is so confident that he will beat Tyron Woodley on Sunday, so much so that he predicts that he will let the former UFC welterweight champion retire early from all fighting sports. The YouTube star then said that he admitted that there is no problem-he has surpassed Woodley to see what might happen next.
Paul (3-0, 3 KOs), the 24-year-old social media influencer, was as arrogant as ever during the game Thursday’s final press conference When he sat shirtless under a pile of cold chains and communicated with 39-year-old Woodley, until security and local police were forced to separate opposing teams in a skirmish that could turn into violence.
Although Woodley (19-7-1 in the mixed martial arts competition) represented the most difficult challenge of Paul’s young boxing career so far, when the two played 8 rounds in the Rockets Mortgage Field, the two sides agreed to catch the ball in the heavyweight class. It was agreed during the game that 190 pounds (Showtime PPV, 8pm EST), Paul confirmed what he made fun of during outdoor public exercise the day before.
Heavyweight champion Tyson Fury (Tyson Fury) 22-year-old half-brother, unproven light heavyweight Tommy Fury (Tommy Fury) on Sunday’s PPV card received a prominent Position, as a trial. If Fury (6-0, 4 KOs) defeats Paul’s sparring partner, former MMA fighter Anthony Taylor (boxing 0-1) this weekend, he may become Paul’s next stop as a legitimate boxer.
“[Fury] It’s beautiful, it’s really beautiful. It makes sense, this is a huge battle,” Paul told “Morning Kombat” on Wednesday. “It seems to be in the palm of our hand.

Fury, with his muscular figure and matinee idol appearance, became a star in 2019 with his runner-up in the 5th season of the British reality show “Love Island”. Since then, considering his continuing relationship with his girlfriend and co-star Molly May Hagrid, and his fighting family surname, Fury has seen his starship continue to improve by becoming a tabloid material.
“Jack Paul is a YouTube user and only did it for a short time, but this person is very good, you can’t say that he is not,” Fury told “Morning Kombat” on Wednesday. “He looked as good as possible after three games. Let’s not get this wrong. But it’s ridiculous to think he can call out these names. He needs to stop. If he wants to be a real fighter and be here Gain respect in the sport, stop talking about Carneiro [Alvarez] with [Floyd] Mayweather. Kneel down and stop fighting with the MMA. We all know why he fought them. Start fighting with real warriors.
“If he wants to get it, we can get it.”
Although Paul talked about Fury’s fighting potential in a big talk with Woodley on Thursday, his tone changed a bit when he discussed the potential battle between him and Fury the day before. Paul said that Fury’s record on PPV is different from what he calls others-including UFC welterweight contender Jorge Masvidal-and that Fury needs to prove some serious conditions before he can be considered Is valuable.
“I still don’t think [British fans] I actually watched his game,” Paul said. “When you look at his pay-per-view views, it didn’t live up to expectations. When you fight with Jack Paul, it must have meaning for many things, from height and weight to experience, pay-per-view purchases, notorious, and selling the ability and time to fight. ”
Fury said that before he surpassed Taylor first, he didn’t want to talk too much about the future of the battle between them. He did say that the fight between them would generate huge box office numbers. When asked if he and Paul could fill a 50,000-seat football stadium in his hometown of England, Fury said they could easily do it.
“This is a large-scale battle, and everyone knows it. As long as we finish the battle, let us continue to fight,” Fury said. “I’m not running away from anyone. God bless us, we all survived on Sunday, no more excuses. I’m one of the most famous people on Instagram, and Jack is a world-famous phenomenon. This is a big battle, Don’t get me wrong. I’m not here to mess with anything.”
One thing Fury does want to clarify is that he does not participate in boxing matches or seek potential fights with Paul, because he is only seeking money or celebrity status that may follow. Just like his last name—he and Tyson Fury are the same father—he is first and only a fighter.
“To be a Fury, you will grow up in battle. You do nothing. As a child, it’s fighting, fighting, fighting,” Fury said. “This is all I have done in my life. I don’t feel a little pressure when you try to live up to someone. I say time and time again, there will never be another Tyson Fury. No one will ever be close. .I just try to do my best.
“I have always lived and trained like a demon. I don’t care about fame, I don’t care about money. All I do is become a champion. I’m on a long road and I’m stopping to fill up the car. It’s easy to make money. I’m not Part of YouTube. I’ve been in this sport my whole life, and I’m here to show these boys that you can’t just pick up this thing. There’s a YouTube thing and then you have the real deal, and that’s me. Don’t let me go In the YouTube category, because I’m not in that category.”
