Tommy Fury and Jake Paul Discuss MMA Fight

After their initial boxing showdown last February, Tommy Fury and Jake Paul are potentially gearing up for a rematch, but this time in the world of mixed martial arts (MMA). Fury, the Brit, emerged victorious in their first encounter, securing a split decision win. However, Paul has been vocal about his desire for a rematch, and his team has reportedly offered Fury a unique two-fight deal.

According to Nakisa Bidarian, Paul's business partner and the co-founder of Most Valuable Promotions, the proposed deal includes a rematch in boxing, followed by a trilogy fight in the Professional Fighters League (PFL) if the series is tied at 1-1. Bidarian stated to ESPN,


"Jake has said to Tommy he's willing to fight him in boxing, and if Jake wins, he's willing to enter the SmartCage in PFL with Tommy and again give him another payday close to eight figures to do that."

PFL is fully supportive of this plan, as Donn Davis confirmed to ESPN that Fury could potentially earn between $15 million and $20 million combined for the two fights, which he claims would be the most money Fury could receive for a fight.


Despite the lucrative offer, Fury has yet to respond to Paul's proposal. Given Fury's background in boxing and his recent victory over KSI, it seems unlikely that he would be enthusiastic about a transition to MMA.


Since his loss to Fury, Paul has continued to make waves in the boxing world, defeating Nate Diaz and knocking out Andre August. He is scheduled to face Ryan Bourland, another professional boxer, on March 2, as part of his quest to become a world champion boxer.


Paul expressed his determination to pursue his boxing ambitions, stating,


"We all know everyone tries to price themselves out if they don't really want to fight and hide behind that. So, I think that's where things are. But regardless, I'm on a different mission to become world champion, and all doors for Tommy lead to me."
