Jake Paul to fight fellow undefeated boxer Tommy Fury on Dec. 18 in Tampa

Jake Paul's biggest problem is that he has never fought "real boxers". This criticism will be addressed mostly at the end.
Paul, the YouTube-star-turned-prizefighter, will fight fellow undefeated boxer Tommy Fury on Dec. 18 in Tampa, Florida, it was officially announced Friday. The bout will take place at 192 pounds. It is scheduled for eight rounds of three minutes each.

Fury, 22 years old, is half-brother to Tyson, the lineal heavyweight champion. He is currently 7-0 in professional boxing.

Paul, 24, became famous for his online content creation. He has since taken that knowledge into the fight world, where he holds an impressive 4-0 record as a professional boxer. He is one of the most prominent social media influencers in the world. Fury is also a well-known celebrity in the UK because of his appearance on "Love Island".

In an interview with Boxing Social, Tyson Fury suggested that Tommy should be changed his name if he loses to Paul. Paul suggested a wager: Tommy Fury will lose to Paul, and Tommy's name will be changed temporarily to "Tommy Fury." Paul will pay Tommy an additional $500,000 if he wins.

Paul stated to ESPN Friday that Tommy Fury had agreed to the name-change wager over a straight-up money stake.

Paul stated, "I offered Fury to change the name of Tommy Fumbles to Fury or to give me $500,000 of my purse if he loses." He agreed to change his name. He seems to place more importance on money than his family name. Perhaps he is aware that his family will disown him if he loses. In this case, money and Molly [Mae Hague], Tommy's girlfriend and UK TV personality is all he has left."

Amanda Serrano is ESPN's No. Sources say Amanda Serrano, the No. 3 female boxer in the country, will be competing in the co-main event of the Paul vs. Fury card. The opponent for her has not yet been determined. Paul's Most Valuable Promotions has promoted Serrano to a 41-1-1 record and 30 knockouts.

Paul comes off a split victory over Tyron Woodley, former UFC welterweight champion. This will be Paul’s third fight of the year. In the first round, he defeated Ben Askren (a former Bellator champion, ONE champion, and UFC veteran) in April. Paul has also knockout wins over Nate Robinson, a former NBA player, and AnEsonGib.

Fury defeated Anthony Taylor, Paul's sparring partner, by unanimous decision on the Paul Vs. Woodley undercard. Fury has knocked out four of his seven opponents. Fury will fight for the first time in a fight that goes beyond four rounds.

Paul vs. Fury is promoted by Paul's Most Valuable Promotions, Showtime Sports, and Tony Holden Productions.
