After years of talking, two of the best boxers in the world are set to take on each other in a much-awaited bout at the Diriyah Arena, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, on Sunday, February 26, 2023. Tommy Fury vs Jake Paul is a bout that takes us back to 2021 when both boxers were scheduled to take on each other. However, the British boxer was forced to withdraw after he suffered a rib injury in training. Next year on August 6, both fighters are again scheduled to face each other.

However, the bout didn’t occur then, and the British boxer was denied a United States visa. After these cancellations, this bout became one of the anticipated ones, and fans started speculating whether they could see these both in a ring, facing each other. However, everything is set now, and it’s time for the bout.
Moving forward, the co-main event is also a promising one where WBC’s WBC’s cruiserweight champion Ilunga Makabu (29-2, 25 KOs) will put his title on the line vs former WBC super middleweight champion Swedish boxer Badou Jack (27-3-3, 15 KOs), who will be eyeing for third after winning world championships in two weight divisions.
Viorel Simion (23-9, 9 KOs) will face undefeated Bader Samreen (7-0, 6 KOs), while undefeated Muhsin Cason (10-0, 7 KOs) will also put his undefeated record on the line as he is scheduled to take on Taryel Jafarov (18-5, 17 KOs), with local boxer Ziyad Almaayouf (1-0, 1 KO) to also feature in a bout against Ronald Martinez (3-1).
Talking about U.S. fighters first, he has played six fights and has won all of these, including four knockout wins. Meanwhile, his opponent, WBC heavyweight champion and the half-brother of Tyson Fury, also has a 100% record (8-0, 4 KO). However, it’s his first time playing in a PPV main event.

What has been said:
As mentioned above, a lot of talking has been done from both sides, with the Youtube star taking a jibe at Tommy following the birth of the first child of the British boxer by saying, “Just in time to see your dad knocked out.”
Earlier this month, Tommy Fury didn’t show up to the pre-fight press conference, and Jake Paul responded with the following media talk:
“I’m used to his behaviour at this point, he’s unprofessional, and he’s a flake. He’s not a serious businessman or a severe fighter, and I will prove that.
“It’s why this fight is called ‘The Truth’ because the truth will come out. He’s going to have to pay for all of the times he’s pulled out. All the business people he screwed over it’s disrespectful. There are some of the biggest names in boxing, the biggest promoters and the most influential people worldwide. One of the greatest countries in the world, and he doesn’t want to show up because of a ‘private matter’. He said.
“When you sign up to do something, you commit; that’s what it should be about. It shows me he’s scared because he said he didn’t need to train for this fight. Meanwhile, his first excuse was to train extra, but now it’s a private matter. I love Tyson, but it’s typical from the dad and Tommy.” Paul further added.
Moreover, WBC has confirmed that if Jake Paul wins, he will be officially ranked in the cruiserweight division. Furthermore, Cristiano Ronaldo is also expected to be there, making the night more memorable.
