Youtuber Jake Paul will embark on his latest boxing adventure on August 6 when he takes on professional boxer Tommy Fury at the Madison square garden. While Jake’s entry into the boxing world has been quite controversial, no one can deny his impact on boxing and the things he has done for the sport. However, Jake is still not taken seriously in the boxing community and he will enter the ring on August 6 to prove everyone wrong and to win the fight against Tommy.
Despite the criticism he faces, Jake has been confident about himself and he is sure he would beat Tommy in August to earn the respect he deserves. Jake’s confident has been appreciated by many and recently sports promoter Eddie Hearn, applauded him for his confident. Hearn talked about the fight between Jake and Tommy and gave his predictions for the fight.
Eddie revealed it is very hard to choose a side and it would be an equal fight between the two. Eddie, however, believes Jake has what it takes to defeat Tommy on August 6 and he could win a fight because of his confidence. Hearn told MMA Hour: “I think Jake probably beat Tommy. They’re about the same level. The problem with Jake is you listen to him and you can’t help being drawn in by the confidence. So I’m now drawn in by the confidence and putting him as a guy who deserves to be a boxer.“
