Paul Has Fought Tougher Competition

Many will scoff at Paul’s boxing record due to who he’s beaten: former MMA champions way past their prime and fellow social media celebrities. But that’s actually a better boxing schedule than whatever Fury has faced. Anderson Silva, Paul’s last opponent, held a win over former champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.

Most professional boxers and analysts will still critique Paul’s lack of technique. He’s still a novice compared to the upper echelon of the sport. But that is a tier Fury does not belong to. And whatever he lacks in proficiency, Paul makes up for in strength and power.

It’s a reason the online sportsbook pegs Paul as the likely winner here. Paul will be slightly bigger and more powerful than Fury. More importantly, than YouTube star-turned-pro boxer knows how to pick his matches. He won’t willingly go to this fight if he knew he had less than a 50% chance of winning.

Fury Is in No Position To Talk

Fury will be the first “legitimate” boxer Paul will face when they meet on Sunday. But that is not saying much as Tyson’s younger brother is barely ranked and has mainly beaten “taxi drivers” as Paul mocked. It’s not far from the truth. The combined record of Fury’s opponents is 24-176-5. The boxers he knocked out had combined for two wins in over 70 pro fights.

Indeed, Fury will be the lowest-level of boxer Paul needs to set himself up for a ranked opponent. And the 23-year-old underdog can’t make fun of Paul’s past as a Disney star as he himself was part of a reality TV series.

News is coming out of their camp that Fury is training so hard that he’s injuring his sparring partners. Not only is this an intimidation tactic, but it also makes Fury look even more unprofessional and “shook”. Still, boxing “purists” may bet online on Fury as he comes from a boxing family and has been around the sport longer than Paul.
