Jake Paul insists Tyson Fury is ‘unbeatable’ and draws comparison to Muhammad Ali while making Anthony Joshua fight prediction


Jake Paul claimed Tyson Fury was “unbeatable” and compared him to Muhammad Ali ahead of a high-profile fight with Anthony Joshua.

Fury and Joshua nearly faced off last summer, but the fight fell through and since then Fury has beaten Deontay Wilder and Dillian Whyte, and retired more than once.

But after Joshua’s recent loss to Oleksandr Usyk, Fury called his longtime rival and the two could now fight for the WBC heavyweight title.

‘The Problem Child’ is excited about the prospect of watching the biggest fight in British history later this year and believes it will help boxing cement its place as the most popular combat sport ahead of MMA.

“It’s a massive fight,” Jake told talkSPORT’s Sam Ellard.

“I think this is a fight that needs to happen for the sport of boxing to continue to grow and make waves and to continue to take over the recently failing MMA, especially the UFC.

“I think this fight needs to happen for boxing to be number one in combat sports.”

Although excited about a potential matchup between Fury and Joshua, Paul thinks ‘The Gypsy King’ will definitely emerge victorious because he just isn’t ‘beatable’ right now.

“Gotta go with Tyson Fury man. I really like Anthony Joshua. He’s a dope guy, he inspires me, but Tyson just isn’t a beatable man, unfortunately,” he added.

“He is too big and has too much talent. He weighs 270 pounds, 280 pounds at times, bounces around the ring like Muhammad Ali, has an amazing chin that has withstood dozens of punches from Deontay Wilder – the hardest hitter in heavyweight history.

“So he’s just not beatable, I don’t think.”

Paul is set for his first fight of the year next month after failed abandoned fights with Tommy Fury and Hasim Rahman Jr., meaning he’s been on the sidelines since knocking out Tyron Woodley in December 2021.

Paul vs. Silva is official for October.

The 25-year-old will look to improve his professional boxing record to 6-0 on October 29 when he takes on former UFC champion Anderson Silva in an eight-round, 187-pound bout in Phoenix, Ariz. Desert Diamond Arena.

At the height of his powers, Silva, 47, was one of the most dominant champions in UFC history and ruled the middleweight division for several years before being dethroned in 2013.

In 2020, “The Spider” was cut by the UFC before moving to boxing where he picked up notable wins over former world champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr and fellow MMA icon Tito Ortiz.
