The co-main event is a cruiserweight championship bout between WBC champ Ilunga Makabu and Badou Jack.
Jake Paul, 26, is one of the most popular personas on the YouTube platform, and he is now one of the fast rising boxing promoters and boxers who nobody would have thought to become a boxing Pay-Per-View star.
Paul has been criticized by boxing pundits and detractors for not fighting any real boxers. He has made a name of beating fellow YouTubers, sports stars, and former UFC fighters well past the age of 35.
On Sunday night he will finally take on a real professional boxer with an undefeated record and three years younger than himself.
Fury, 23, comes from a fighting family with his big brother being WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, and he has a lot to live up to if he doesn’t beat Paul his family said he should never step in the ring again and just call it quits because he is levels above Paul.
