Best Bet to Win the Fight

For the first time in his career, Jake Paul enters a fight as the underdog. As every other opponent he has faced is not a professional boxer, it makes sense that online sportsbooks are leaning – if not by a large margin – in favour of Tommy Fury.

Even if Paul’s list of opponents is nothing special – he has taken care of business. He has two first-round knockouts, and a third career knockout in the second round. When Paul fought Tyron Woodley in August – his hardest test in the ring – he handled everything the former UFC Champion had – including a few blows that proved his toughness as a boxer.

Paul has some advantages in entering this fight that can help him pull off the upset. For one, Fury has never fought a fight longer than four rounds. It is hard to know for sure how good his stamina will be – but from what we have seen, he does look slower in round four than round one.

Also – even if Fury has fought actual boxers, the list of names is not impressive. Excluding Jordan Grant – who was 2-0 entering the fight against Fury – the combined record of his opponents is 12-175-5. It is hard to get excited about a 7-0 boxer when that’s the record of his opponents.

Lastly, Tommy Fury is not renowned for his power. Anthony Taylor – Fury’s last opponent before Paul – stated fury does not have knockout power. If Fury is to win, he needs to knock out Paul. Otherwise, it will be a long night of Paul using his speed and jabs to either open an opportunity for a knockout or win the fight by decision.

Undercard Fight Preview: NFL Legend Frank Gore takes on NBA Star Deron Williams

To Win the FightTo Win the Fight
Frank GoreDeron Williams

While, we do not have too much to go on in this fight – in terms of boxing skills and resume – if you are an NFL or NBA fan – or a fan of both sports, this fight is amazing.

While we do not have odds on the fight yet, we are betting Frank Gore – the third all-time leading – opens as an underdog to four-time NBA All-Star Deron Williams. Gore was perfectly built to have success as a running back in the NFL.

That means a stout stature, low centre of gravity, and used to taking plenty of abuse. That also means he is only 5’ 9” tall and has a much shorter reach than Deron Williams (who has a 6’ 6” wingspan).

Frank has been training in boxer for nearly a year now – taking up the sport seriously after he retired from the NFL at the end of the 2020 NFL Season. However, Williams has a lengthy history in combat sports. Williams won two Texas State wrestling championships in the 90s. Since retiring in 2017, Williams is heavily invested in the MMA world – training in it for the last four years.

Overall, Williams has more advantage in this fight and is our pick to win.
