It looks like Jake Paul vs Tommy Fury could be next. The younger brother of heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, Tommy Fury has slowly made a name for himself owing to his explosive power. While he may have failed to get a finish on the Jake Paul card against Anthony Taylor, he made the case for a fight against the YouTuber turned professional boxer.
Both the athletes have had their fair share of back and forth on social media, and a recent backstage altercation between Tommy Fury and Jake Paul following the Woodley bout points towards a promising bout between both the contenders.

Tommy Fury may not be as popular as Tyron Woodley, but he is a young professional boxer, unlike Paul’s previous opponents who are mostly from other sports, and often old and retired. While a rematch looks to be a possibility, it remains to be seen what lies ahead for Jake Paul.
Jake Paul vs Tommy Fury is an exciting match-up. It won’t be wrong to say that it would have the attention of heavyweight champion of the world Tyson Fury, who could be of great help in the promotion of the bout.
Jake Paul can beat Tommy Fury
Jake Paul has shown incredible improvement in his past few fights. The bout against a seasoned striker like Tyron Woodley was a testimony of his improvements. Paul is a vicious puncher and carries disastrous power in his hands. He is quick on his feet, and can definitely take a shot.
Tommy Fury, on the other hand, is a promising boxer as well. He is young, athletic, and while certainly not gifted like his older brother Tyson Fury, has some tricks up his sleeve that get his job done. He has solid power in his hands, enough to take down any fighter, however, he lacks courage, and can be beaten.
Tommy Fury hasn’t been extraordinary. The 22-year old British boxer is 7-0 in his professional boxing career but lacks elite competition. Fury’s most recent bout came against a former mixed martial artist Anthony Taylor, where Fury did not look as dominating as one would have hoped.
Paul, on the other hand, has been showing significant improvement. However, the biggest factor is showing up under pressure, and Jake Paul is slowly becoming a master at it with back-to-back wins over former MMA world champions.
