Promoter Eddie Hearn has a 'terrible feeling' Jake Paul will BEAT Love Island star Tommy Fury in celebrity grudge match

EDDIE HEARN admitted he has a 'terrible feeling' Jake Paul will BEAT Tommy Fury in their celebrity grudge match.

YouTuber Paul and Love Island star Fury have signed to fight on December 18 in Florida.

It has already attracted huge attention and was the first thing promoter Hearn was asked about on Instagram Live.

And when quizzed on who he is picking to win, Hearn said: “I have got a terrible feeling that Jake Paul might win.”

He promoted Paul's professional boxing debut, a one round win over online rival 'AnEsonGib' in January 2020.

Then he knocked out ex-NBA player Nate Robinson and retired UFC welterweight Ben Askren, 37.

Most recently, the American beat ex-UFC champion Tyron Woodley, 39, over eight rounds, to go 4-0.

On the undercard, Fury, 22, beat Paul's sparring partner Anthony Taylor, 32, to go 7-0.

Hearn has been quick to applaud Paul's ability but warned defeat for Fury, brother to heavyweight champion Tyson, would be disastrous.

He said: “I’ve only watched Tommy Fury once in a UK show beating a guy that I could’ve beaten.

“And then I watched that last fight he was in, the four-rounder against the guy who sparred with Jake.

“Logic and hope would tell you a professional boxer that boxed for a living and was also Tyson Fury’s brother should never, ever lose to Jake Paul.

“But Jake Paul is not horrific, there’s a lot of pro fighters worse than Jake Paul.

“I’ve seen them, I’ve had a lot of them on my shows in with young kids coming through.

“But it’s just the most embarrassing thing if he loses that fight.”
