A Midnite spokesperson said: “The statistics clearly show that Tommy Fury is a better boxer than Jake Paul, the Fury blood running through his veins has allowed him to knockout pro boxers more frequently than Paul knocks out boxing debutants.
“This will be the ‘Problem Child’s’ first real test in the professional boxing world, and KSI will be sure to be watching so he can study for their ultimate fight rumoured to happen at the end of the year.
“However, pressure is on Fury to win this fight after jokes of being ‘disowned’ by his world champion brother, Tyson, and he’ll not want to disappoint the boxing professionals against a social media influencer.
“Despite Tommy Fury being the better fighter statistically, the odds suggest that the 23-year-old goes into the fight as the underdog.”
