Jake Paul vs Tommy Fury Prediction
Ever since he began his boxing career, people have been waiting for Jake Paul to lose. He hasn't yet. His skeptics have pointed to the fact he's never faced an actual boxer before, Fury is exactly that. This is Paul's chance to silence a lot of people, even though many will probably come up with the next excuse as to why he can't compete as a pro boxer, even if he wins.
What people fail to recognize is every major fighter in boxing began his career against scrubs, boxers that flamed out, had an unimpressive record, or rookies along with themselves. No matter the name, the beginning of a boxing career is almost never something to write home about resume-wise. So while yes, that can be said about Paul, it can also be said about Fury.
Of Fury's eight previous opponents, only two of them have a winning record. Four of them have zero career wins. So sure, Fury may have more "boxing experience" than Paul, but you could argue his resume is even less impressive. One of Fury's opponents is 10-102, no that's not a typo, 102 career losses.
I expect Paul to come out and be tactical here. He will pick his spots and it may be enough to get the knockout, but he won't be reckless, so it might be a win by points, Fury has 4 knockouts in eight fights to his name as well, plus a reach advantage. Paul gets his first win against a "real" boxer, backs up all the trash talk, and keeps it moving to his next fight.
