Boxing fans get polarized by Jake Paul, but what to make of him? They want to see Paul fight better pugilists in the Cruiserweight division or any division. All these tomato cans get talked up and go down. Give Paul credit as he finds a way to keep marketing and evolving with the times. At some point, when does the American find someone who forces Paul to face some adversity err reality?
Paul feels supremely confident, and rightfully so. Whether one wants to argue with his opponents, he does have six wins and four knockouts. Again, he has not fought a formally trained boxer. Tommy Fury represents a first there. However, some debate exists that Fury is not much of an active fighter. There is that ten-month layoff issue. Meanwhile, Paul just went eight rounds with Anderson Silva less than four months ago.
This fight gets more and more press because of what is happening in other divisions. Unfortunately, such chaos begs a fighter who goes at it actively. Talent almost does not matter as Paul stays active and shows some legitimate boxing ability. Whether that translates into defeating Tommy Fury is another question. However, Paul takes this craft more seriously than most give him credit for.
Is this cruiserweight division a mess? The rationale lies in the undercard, which is a WBC Cruiserweight Championship bout. Jake Paul remains a slight cruiserweight boxing bet favorite after initially being Even in early wagering. Part of that reason lies in the reality that Paul has shown more and more stamina while Fury has not fought eight rounds. His longest fight was his last bout (six rounds).
Yes, this Paul fight tests him at least a little. The problem was the American needed someone that could seemingly hurt the pugilist. Fury trained and sparred with the likes of his older brother and other British fighters. However, training and fighting are two different concepts.
Jake Paul carries a driven focus on winning this fight and setting up some fights later this year. That is just known at this point. Does this go seven rounds or more at the end of the month? Perhaps, does it go fewer? Now, it is hard to gauge distance here, but the distance feels likely. One wager sides with Jake Paul going the distance on February 26th. It figures to move a little more between now and then.
Tommy Fury gets chance to stop Jake Paul at last on February 26th. Yes, this fight appears as “Opportunity Knocks” for Fury. The boxer possesses a little power, with four knockouts in his eight wins. He did win his last fight in a six round decision by points. Many British pundits say Fury is taking his training more seriously than ever. Again, those boxing icons include a heavyweight champion (his brother, Tyson).
The rationale worries some here that just because one trains with so much talent that it will magically rub off. Let’s be honest, and this Fury is not in the same universe as Tyson. Everyone knows this, and so does Paul. The American fighter exploits these “advantages” for what they are. Yes, Fury has the punching ability, but who cracks stamina-wise? That answer does not appear to be so automatic.
The younger fighter (23) will need to strike early to show Paul he means business. This figures to not be likely as both fighters feel things out. Lyndon Arthur’s assertion that Fury has so much power. While most do not go that far, Paul faces an actual boxer. What is the true skillset of the British boxer? That’s a much bigger question with an uncertain answer. If Fury wins, it could be by a split decision.
Cruiserweight boxing bets and props as the prime Vegas online boxing odds are mostly out. Only a few props remain but are off the board. In the meantime, enough round props and decision outcomes are published to give bettors the ability to make some different choices.
Again, this feels like a bout where anything could happen. Will there be a knockout, though? That seems to be trending toward a bigger and bigger risk. Now, wagering a few dollars on Tommy Fury catching Paul napping gets greater value. For one, a knockout or stoppage is getting +120 currently. Siding with Fury by any round prop also has about 10-20% better numbers.
It points to hedging some wagers and potentially waiting on the round props. There is nothing wrong with that.
