It appears Tommy Fury and Daniel Dubois will be featured in separate bouts on the Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley undercard.
On Aug. 29, YouTube star Jake Paul will go one-on-one with former UFC Welterweight Champion Tyron Woodley in a boxing match. The bout is scheduled for eight rounds in the cruiserweight division. The bout will be held inside the Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse in Cleveland, Ohio and it’ll air live on Showtime PPV.
The Mirror is reporting that Tommy Fury and Daniel Dubois will also be competing on the card. Fury has been competing in the light-heavyweight division and has a record of 6-0. As for Dubois, he continues his comeback trail after suffering the first loss of his career to Joe Joyce. In his first rebound fight, Dubois defeated Bogdan Dinu via second-round knockout.
Fury’s reported placement on the card is interesting as he has beef brewing with Paul. Fury had enlisted the help of his half-brother, Tyson, and former NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal in an attempt to get the fight.
Paul fired back at Fury in a video posted on social media (h/t Sky Sports).
“The desperation is seeping through the pores of the Fury family. It’s quite embarrassing. The heavyweight champion of the world is on Instagram, talking about Jake Paul, begging me to fight his brother. Listen Tommy, focus on your fight that’s in a couple of weeks, that nobody even knows about by the way.
“You’re literally picking someone to fight you in three weeks, who hasn’t even been training,” Paul continued. “You don’t even have an opponent who is going to go through a real camp. Fight someone real, do a real pay-per-view, and then maybe we can chat. The last guy you fought was 0-9. The people you’ve fought have a combined total record of 15 wins and 250 losses.
“I’ve already knocked out an NBA player, so leave Shaq out of this,” Paul concluded. “You guys are desperate. You have some ladders to climb to get onto my level, my friend.”
