Originally an actor and social media personality, Paul (6-0, 4 KO) has enjoyed a meteoric rise in boxing since becoming professional. Now a global phenomenon with over 10m social media followers, the American enters the contest following back-to-back knockout wins over UFC legends Tyron Woodley and Anderson Silva.
Speaking at the official press conference in Riyadh on Wednesday February 8, Paul shared his thoughts on the upcoming contest and what fans can expect. “I’m going to show him that this is the hurt business – it’s not a possibility that Tommy beats me,” he said. “I live and breathe this sport, whereas Tommy is not that guy. He’s been spoon-fed his whole career; he’s never fought someone like me, and the pressure will get to him. He will pay for the times he pulled out of this fight. I promise he’s not going to like this sport after I’m done with him. I’m going to prove my power, stamina, work ethic, athletic ability, boxing IQ and knock him out inside four rounds.”
The half-brother of WBC and lineal heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, Britain’s Tommy Fury (8-0, KO 4) also has a flawless professional record inside the ring. Himself a global star following his success in reality television, Fury is part of the famous fighting family of the same name and has promised to end Paul’s career in emphatic fashion.
The night will also include the strongest Saudi undercard to date, together with Badou Jack taking on WBC cruiserweight champion Ilunga Makabu.
Ravi Samani, COO and Acting Head of Marketing, PR & Communications of Skill Challenge Entertainment, said, “This is an epic encounter that’s simply unmissable for boxing fans across the Kingdom, region and the world. These two global superstars have never lost a fight. There is genuine dislike between the fighters, and both have made bold predictions and promises. Fireworks await, and under the bright lights of our stunning purpose-built arena in Diriyah, the time for talk is over.”
A part of Diriyah Season’s second edition, ‘The Truth’ is organised by the Ministry of Sport in association with Saudi Boxing Federation, Skill Challenge Entertainment, Most Valuable Promotions and Queensberry Promotions.
