The next event scheduled is the highly anticipated challenge of Jake Paul’s career dubbed “The Truth” on February 26th when he takes on Tommy Fury in an 8-round bout. With two previous failed attempts at making the fight happen, both fighters have now arrived in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and are prepared to square off next week.

“The Truth” Paul (6-0, 4 KOs) vs Fury (8-0, 4 KOs) will be shown in the United States on ESPN PPV with the live broadcast beginning at 11am PST / 2pm EST. The co-feature on the bout is for the WBC Cruiserweight Title between defending champion Illunga Junior Makabu (29-2, 25 KOs) and Badou Jack (27-3-3, 16 KOs).

“This is arguably the most anticipated “hybrid card” put together to date featuring one of the most talked about personalities in the sport, Jake Paul and the question of what happens when he fights a “real” boxer. Tommy Fury fits that bill and we’ll have that answer on the 26th. That fight, coupled with a co main event featuring a WBC Title fight between Junior Makabu and Badou Jack, makes it for a very interesting night of boxing” Abdallah added.
