On February 26th, boxing fans in the UK and Ireland will be able to tune in to the matchup between Jake ‘The Problem Child’ Paul and Tommy ‘TNT’ Fury, exclusively live on BT Sport Box Office. The fight, which takes place in Diriyah, Saudi Arabia, has been two years in the making.

Having entered the ring professionally in 2020, Paul’s career has been on a steep rise, with his record standing at 6-0, with four knockouts. Paul’s most recent bout saw him claim victory over UFC legend Anderson Silva, with Paul dropping the Brazilian in the 8th round at the Desert Diamond Arena in Glendale, Arizona. Paul stands at the forefront of a new movement within the sport, with many social media and YouTube stars entering the ring to launch their boxing careers.

His opponent, Fury, comes into this clash with a professional record of 8-0, also with four knockouts. Having fought in 12 amateur fights, winning two regional finals and reaching the 2016 UK national final, Fury enters the ring as the more experienced fighter. His most recent fight saw him knockout Polish light-heavyweight Daniel Bocianski in six rounds last April on the undercard of Tyson Fury vs Dillian Whyte.

The card will also feature two-weight world champion Badou Jack ‘The Ripper’ challenging WBC Cruiserweight world champion Illunga Makabu in the co-main event.

Fans will be able to watch all the build-up, the undercard and the main event of Paul v Fury exclusively live on BT Sport Box Office. The event will start at 6.30pm with the main event ring walk at 9:30pm on BT Sport Box Office, costing £19.95 in the UK (€29.99, or €34.99 on the day, in Ireland) and can be watched through BT TV, Virgin TV and Sky or online via the web or the BT Sport Box Office App. Viewres do not need to be a BT Sport subscriber to buy this event.
