Jake Paul vs Tommy Fury: How boxers match up ahead of potential super-fight between YouTuber and Love Island star
JAKE PAUL vs Tommy Fury could finally be on.
Fury beat Anthony Taylor in four rounds on Paul's undercard at the weekend and the pair were trading insults before the night was out.
Paul beat Tyron Woodley via split decision in Ohio.
The judges scored it 77-75, 79-74, 75-77 in Paul's favour.
And focus soon switched to what the 24-year-old would do next.
Online personality Paul initially hinted he would duck the Fury fight and take a break from boxing.
But soon after he was clashing with the Brit backstage and calling for the fight to be staged.
Paul, who moved to 4-0 with the biggest win of his career, was quizzed about fighting Fury next.

He argued Woodley is the tougher opponent but left the door open to an all-celebrity bout with Fury.
Paul said: "Will we see that fight? I would run that s*** easy. That's an easier fight than Tyron in my opinion.
"But who knows? But sorry, like, people are like, 'Oh, he's a real boxer. Fight a real boxer'. OK, maybe, maybe let's run it. OK, 'real boxer'."
So how do the potential rivals compare?
Paul turned 24 in January and is more than two years older than his British counterpart, who celebrated his 22nd birthday in May.
Both fighters have unblemished records – Fury is 7-0 and Paul's 4-0.
Of Fury's seven wins, four have been by KO, while three of Paul's four finished inside the distance.
Both fight with an orthodox stance – 6ft 1in Paul is just an inch taller than Fury but 'TNT' has the longer reach, 80ins to 76ins.
The big one, though, is the Instagram followers and who would have the bigger fan base behind them cheering on from home.
Reality TV sensation Fury boasts an impressive 3.6m.
But 'The Problem Child' – younger brother of fellow YouTuber Logan – blows his rival out of the water with a whopping 17.1m.
