LIVE! Watch ‘Paul Vs. Fury’ On PPV
THE TRUTH! International superstar and serial risk-taker, Jake “The Problem Child” Paul, will face the biggest challenge of his budding combat sports career when he takes on his first-ever professional boxer, Tommy “TNT” Fury, inside Diriyah Arena in Diriyah, Saudi Arabia, streaming live on ESPN pay-per-view (PPV). “Paul vs. Fury,” which will also feature WBC Cruiserweight kingpin, Ilunga Makabu, battling former WBC and WBA champion, Badou Jack, in the co-main event, special start time is slated for 2 p.m. ET, with a PPV price tag of $49.99.
“Tommy, I hope you’ve enjoyed these last few moments of your career,” Paul said on Instagram. “This is it. You’re gonna be retired from boxing after this. You’re gonna be disowned by your family. You’re gonna go back to your mother’s maiden name. There’s nothing else that can save you. It is just me and you, mano a mano. Your brother’s not in the ring anymore with you. Your dad’s not in the ring with you anymore. Molly’s not in the ring with you anymore. Bambi isn’t in the ring with you anymore, so all that little cute motivation about having a child and fighting for her, all that sh*t goes out the window when I’m coming to take your f*cking head off. Decapitate you. I’m a mean, angry person deep down. I’m gonna take out all of it on your f*cking face. There’s nothing you can do to f*cking beat me.”
