Jake Paul is returning to the boxing ring on August 6 (month 8), as he announced on his Twitter profile, and the fight is scheduled to take place at Madison Square Garden in New York City. The opponent for his sixth professional fight is still unknown, but more and more speculation is that it is Tommy Fury.
"Back in the gym, back to training and excited, more excited and motivated than ever," Paul said. "You know, that was Chapter 1 of my boxing career, that was my rookie season, and now I get to go on another chapter here."
Although Paul said after Tommy's last fight that he was not overly enthusiastic about the performance or the fact that Tommy was not supported by a large audience, he concluded that Tommy was not an adequate opponent for higher earnings, he may have changed his mind.
It has also been speculated that Anderson Silva will be the one to cross gloves in the ring next, but this is less likely now as Silva recently had a match and it is not known if this is enough time for him to rest and prepare.
Jake Paul's tweet
Paul has so far proven to be a fairly talented boxer after scoring five consecutive wins in his professional career.
Of those five, he scored four by knockout, beating former Bellator champion Ben Askren and two-time UFC champion Tyron Woodley. Jake Paul was known to the public even before he tried his hand at boxing waters thanks to the YouTube platform.
Also on the poster is world champion Amanda Serrano returning to the super-featherweight category to defend her titles against an as-yet-unknown opponent. Eddie Hearn recently stated that Amanda does not want a rematch against Katie Taylor, and now it is clear what is behind it.
Apparently, a new fight has been arranged in the meantime, so a rematch with Taylor will have to wait. It’s also possible that Hearn didn’t make a good enough offer for Amanda and her manager Jake Paul to accept.
