    Just watched a bit of Paul boxing on YT and then a bit Tommy, the gap is huge, TF is sharp and seems to know the ins and outs of boxing, Paul on the other hand looks like what he is - a celebrity with no real boxing experience having a go at the sport. Would be a beatdown based on what I've seen.

    We will see just how good Tommy Fury is when he fights somebody who throws a punch.

    As soon as one lands, we will see if he has the balls or if he's a big bodybuilding dosser who will gas after 4 rounds.

    He's training with BJ Flores I think mate. Don't know what Shannon Briggs's involvement was other than perhaps publicity!

    I think Jake Paul is taking it seriously and actually is dedicated at the moment but I think Tommy Fury comes from good fighting stock has a deep knowledge of the sport and ability. I think he KO's and destroys Paul to be honest but should be facing better opposition!

    Agree that Paul is taking it seriously but dedication won't make up for having no amateur experience, starting the sport in his 20's and so far only fighting other non boxers.

    Can't believe we're even talking about this nonsense like it's a proper fight between full time pro's !!!

    I'm not into all these youtubers boxing at all, if it was white collar and raising a bit of money for charity that's fine but they're making boxing look like a laughing stock. Unfortunately it looks like it's here to stay for a bit yet though, the only way it looks like it will stop sooner is if one of these youtubers get seriously hurt.

    This is obviously going to happen at some point. I see Jake Paul is due to fight Ben Askren the UFC fighter who he’s definitely not nailed on to beat. I wouldn’t be surprised if that gets pulled and this gets made.

    Maybe not hurt but we need one of these guys to step up and fight am active pro in a real pro fight and just get beat up.

    Virgo vs Fury actually isn’t the worst fight in the world later this year if they both want it. Would do decent numbers for a broadcaster and is a relatively even match up.

    YouTube boxers need to be stopped from stepping up before someone gets badly hurt.

    Apparently undercard of Jake Paul vs Ben Askren will have Regis Prograis, v Ivan Redkach .Here we have serious world rated boxers playing 2nd fiddle to Novice Boxers !!! Askren is a rated grappler and MMA fighter but assuming he is not sandbagging us all in the boxing videos that he is releasing his boxing technique doesn’t seem very good . Paul seems a bit better allowing for the fact he hasn’t been boxing for long . I am assuming that having 19 million followers makes Paul an attractive promotional product and I can understand why he will have no shortage of challengers .
