Jake Paul vs. Tommy Fury Rescheduled for February 25th
The highly-anticipated boxing match between Jake Paul and Tommy Fury is set to take place on February 25th, according to sources. The location, venue, and broadcast partner have yet to be announced, but reports suggest it will be held in Saudi Arabia. This marks the third time the match has been scheduled, with previous attempts being cancelled due to medical issues and travel restrictions.
The first attempt was set for December 2021, but Fury withdrew, leading to Tyron Woodley stepping in for a rematch with Paul, which ended with a sixth-round knockout in Paul’s favor. The second attempt was scheduled for August at Madison Square Garden, but Fury was unable to travel to the U.S. The fight was then shifted to Paul facing Hasim Rahman Jr., but was ultimately cancelled due to weight-cutting issues.
Paul would go on to defeat Anderson Silva via unanimous decision to remain undefeated as a boxer. On the other hand, Fury has remained unbeaten as a pro boxer and picked up wins against Scott Williams, Jordan Grant, and Anthony Taylor in 2021.
