Jake Paul's Rumoured Opponent For August 13 Revealed, It's Going To Be A Big Grudge Match

Jake Paul's rumoured opponent for his next fight has been revealed and fight fans could be in store for a BIG grudge match.


'The Problem Child' is set to return to action on August 13, having been kept busy with his promotional duties for the blockbuster showdown between Katie Taylor and Amanda Serrano. 

He hasn't fought since his destructive knockout victory over Tyron Woodley last December, with the 25-year-old teasing his return on social media. 

"I'm back. August 13," he wrote on Twitter, seemingly announcing when he'll be back in the ring. 

As for his opponent, a whole bunch of fighters are thought to be in the running. From UFC legend Michael Bisping to former boxing world champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.

But, according to reports, Paul is set to give Tommy Fury another chance following the collapse of their bout last December. 

Keemstar, who was the first to report the news of Fury's withdrawal, claims Paul will meet Tyson Fury's younger brother this summer. 

He said:​ "What I'm hearing from my sources that Jake Paul is going to be in fact facing Tommy Fury.

"It looks like Jake is going to give him another chance."

Paul and Fury were supposed to clash last year before 'TNT' was forced to pull out. 

The 22-year-old fought on the undercard of Paul vs. Woodley last summer and recorded his latest win on the Tyson Fury vs. Dillian Whyte event.

He outpointed Daniel Bocianski​ at Wembley Stadium to register his eighth professional victory. 

​Fury called out Paul after his win, calling him a 'bum' in a fierce message. 

"Get the contract signed you bum, let's get it done once and for all," he said. 

"That lad in there [Bocianski] is a true professional. He was cut to bits, still in there giving me everything that he had, he'd slap Jake Paul and it'd be over

"Jake Paul, I'm going to end your career, you're no good. Let's get this fight done and get this settled."​
