YouTube personality Jake Paul may have lost his boxing match against Tommy Fury, but it appears he has reason to feel so much better about himself.
That is because he is revealing the early pay-per-view (PPV) estimates that have reportedly registered over half a million buys, with more being counted as the numbers continue to roll in.
“I guess the silver lining is that the pay-per-views are off the charts,” Paul said on his podcast (transcribed by MMA Fighting). “Probably going to be the biggest fight of the year. It’s going to be hard to contend with. Maybe [Ryan] Garcia and [Gervonta] Davis. It’s probably coming at over half a million buys. Still totaling everything. So the business is great.”
“I have respect for the kid,” Paul said about Fury. “I think that’s the most beautiful thing about this sport. You can be arch-enemies and then find respect for each after beating the sh*t out of each other and going to war. It’s definitely really cool. I’m happy for him for sure. Just seeing him cry because I’ve been there, going through all the adversity, and then the win meaning everything. Definitely happy for him.”
In attendance were the likes of Tyson Fury, Devin Haney, Deontay Wilder, Mike Tyson, and Cristiano Ronaldo, and the event was broadcast on ESPN+ in the States at a price point of $49.99.
Logan Paul stated that if Paul doesn’t do his rematch clause, he’ll jump in and get revenge.
“If you don’t (have a rematch), I’d like to handle that,” Logan said, “that was like, my first instinct, obviously.”
The 23-year-old Fury is now 9-0 in his professional boxing career with four knockouts.
Paul, meanwhile, falls to 6-1 in his young professional boxing career.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
