Jake Paul, the international superstar turned professional boxer, decided to answer the critics. He will face a "real boxer" for the first time, the undefeated Tommy "TNT" Fury, in the eight-round cruiserweight main event Sunday in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
Paul (6-0, 4 KOs), nicknamed "The Problem Child," has become one of the sport's most popular figures with standout showings over former MMA stars Tyron Woodley, Anderson Silva and Ben Askren.
Fury (8-0, 4 KOs), the half-brother of Tyson Fury, has been dominant since making his pro debut in December 2018.
Fury and Paul have waged a years-long war of words, and that continued in Riyadh at Thursday's press conference.
Paul vs. Fury will stream live on ESPN+ PPV (2 p.m. ET / 11 p.m. PT), the exclusive digital distributor for the event in the United States. Additionally, it will be available via cable and satellite pay-per-view providers and will be priced at $49.99.
In the co-feature, Ilunga Makabu (29-2, 25 KOs) will defend his WBC cruiserweight world title against former two-weight world champion Badou Jack (27-3-3, 16 KOs).
