Jake Paul is set to face off against Tommy Fury on February 26. We’re just days away from the fight and the trash-talking is reaching an all-time high.

That’s especially true for Paul, who is never one to shy away from the mic.

During an interview with Stephen A. Smith on ESPN, Jake Paul doubled down on his claims about knocking out Tommy Fury.

After taking the time to acknowledge all of the criticism, Paul predicts exactly what round he thinks he’ll knockout Fury.

If saying “bet the mortgage on it” isn’t the most confident statement you’ve heard then I don’t know what is.

This is possibly Jake Paul’s most anticipated fight as he’s finally taking on a boxer rather than an MMA fighter past his prime.

Additionally, there is some extra motivation for Paul, as he’ll officially be ranked if he defeats Fury in the ring on Sunday, per BBC Boxing.

This isn’t the first time Jake Paul prepared to take on Tommy Fury though. For whatever reason, the two have not been able to box over recent years.

Now, the two will finally square off in the boxing ring.

Although Tommy Fury has plenty of experience and stems from a prestigious boxing family, many still believe Jake Paul is more than capable to win this fight.

Jake Paul vs Tommy Fury will air live on ESPN+ PPV this Sunday at 2pm EST.
