Barry McGuigan Takes Down Tommy Fury vs Jake Paul: ‘He Can Wallop’

As Jake Paul and Tommy Fury prepared to go head to head in Saudi Arabia on February 26, Barry McGuigan analyzed the match and its opponents.

The hall of fame boxer/spinner says the event is attracting fans ‘who may not be a regular part of’ with the sport – something obvious from the loud around it.

Write in your column for Mirror, McGuigan first offered his opinion on the American and his qualifications.

“[Paul] has trained and competed at Freddie Roach’s Wild Card Gym in Los Angeles for a long time and has performed at a good level as a white-collar boxer. He’s a really good fighter, but his 6-0 record was mostly built against the debuting fighters of his choice.”

He also rates Fury the same, although emphasizing that he has a long way to go if he, as he claims, wants to follow the traditional route to winning titles.

Rage is very raw. He’s a strong kid but a long-term project if you’re talking about him having a professional career. Four of his eight professional opponents have never won a match. His first three games resulted in 154 losses between them. That’s to be expected at this stage in his career.”
