7-0 boxer Tommy Fury has opened as the slight betting favorite over YouTuber Jake Paul ahead of their proposed boxing match later this year.

Here are the opening odds, per SportsBetting.ag.

Jake Paul +120

Tommy Fury -150

Fury, 22, has gone down the traditional boxing route while 24-year-old Paul has fought only non-boxers such as YouTuber AnEsonGib, ex-NBA player Nate Robinson, and former MMA champions Ben Askren and Tyron Woodley. He is 4-0 since making his debut last year, finishing three out of his four fights via KO.

Tommy Fury is the younger brother of WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, who is fresh off a KO victory over ‘The Bronze Bomber’, Deontay Wilder last Saturday.

Although no date or venue has been announced for Fury vs. Paul, TMZ Sports reports that the matchup is a ‘done deal’.

Fury, who appeared on the wildly popular British reality TV series Love Island, has agreed to legally change his name to ‘Tommy Fumbles’ if he loses to Paul.
