“The Problem Child” is 4-0 as a boxer with three of his victories coming way by KO/TKO, which includes a first-round finish over former Bellator and ONE welterweight champion Ben Askren in April 2021.
The social media sensation earned the biggest victory of his career last month when he followed up the Askren victory with a split decision nod over former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley.
So, who’s next for the YouTuber-turned-boxing superstar?
If he has it his way, it’ll be Tommy Fury. Fury, who is the half brother of boxing heavyweight champ Tyson Fury, has consistently called out Paul. Fury has a professional boxing record of 7-0.
“TNT” fought on the undercard of the Paul vs. Woodley Showtime Boxing PPV, and many viewed it as Fury’s chance to burst into the U.S. market with an impressive win over the undersized Anthony Taylor. However, the fight went all four scheduled rounds and even though Fury won a unanimous decision, he left fans underwhelmed.
Paul also wasn’t impressed with his performance.
A lot had been made that if The Problem Child and TNT both won their fights on August 29, 2021, then they’ll box each other next. Will the fight happen? It’s unclear at this time as both fighters have expressed that they have other options. But in a recent interview, Fury made his thoughts clear about boxing Paul.
