Some Fans Believe Jake Paul Could Fight Tyson Fury

After Tyson Fury's victory over Deontay Wilder in Las Vegas last night (9 October), a number of fight fans are suggesting the 'Gypsy King' could even fight Jake Paul at some point in his career.

Paul himself - ever the self-promoter - has even commented on it, tweeting: "I think Tyson Fury might have finally earned the chance to fight me."

So, he's obviously joking, but some people haven't seemed to get the memo.

One person even seems to have genuinely written: "Jake Paul would out box Tyson Fury if he doesn't over commit.

"He doesn't need to knockout Tyson but land more punches. Jake Paul can win with a good defense and counters."

You reckon? Let's hope they're joking.

Obviously, there's a lot of fairly sensible people out there too who believe that Jake Paul would do well to focus on where he's at in his own career rather than jumping to the champ.

It's still very early in Jake Paul's fighting life, and he'll need to beat a few actual boxers first if he's going to work his way up the ranks.

Paul most recently stopped Tyron Woodley and - admittedly - earned a bit of respect from some corners of the fighting world, but there's a long way to go before he can claim to occupy the same rarefied air as the likes of Fury, his opponent Wilder, or Oleksandr Usyk, who claimed the other three belts from Anthony Joshua last month.

As for Fury, it looks as if his trilogy fight with Wilder will be the final chapter in an intriguing time for the heavyweight division.

Now, he'll surely attempt to make a fight with either Usyk, or the winner of a rematch between Usyk and Joshua.

Such a fight would see all four belts in the division on the line for the first time in decades, since Lennox Lewis claimed the whole set at the turn of the millennium.

As for Wilder, who knows.

The Alabaman refused to shake hands or show any mutual respect with Fury after the fight, despite having shared three fights and 30 rounds of brutal boxing between them.

Afterwards, Fury said: "I said, 'Well done.' And he said, 'I don't wanna show any sportsmanship or respect.' I said, 'No problem.'

"I was very surprised by that but he's a sore loser, an idiot.

"To be a top fighting man, you've got to show guts and respect and he couldn't do it tonight. And that's it.

"He couldn't do it so I'll pray for him. I'm just thankful we all got out the fight in one piece and go home to our lovely families."
