Tommy Fury vs Jake Paul fight - UK start time, ring walks and how to watch

Tommy Fury is set to take on one of the "toughest" fights of his career tonight against YouTuber-turned-boxer Jake Paul.

Set to be one of the most hotly anticipated fights of 2023, two previous attempts were made at scheduling it - both of which fell through.

But tonight will see the clash finally take place with both boxers hoping to maintain their impressive career records. Fury has established a 8-0-0 professional record, while Paul has a 6-0-0 record - but he has never professionally won against a full-time boxer.

Manchester Evening News reports that the winner will receive a top 40 ranking in the WBC's cruiserweight division, also on the night fans will get to see the pinnacle of the WBC's cruiserweight ranks on the same card. Badou Jack takes on Ilunga Makabu hoping to claim Makabu's WBC world title.

Adam Saleh also fights on the card, with the former YouTuber continuing his new found boxing career against Stuart Kellogg. In addition to this, unbeaten Bader Samreen faces Viorel Simion while another undefeated fighter Muhsin Cason takes on Taryel Jafarov.
