But, officials from the WBC, one of the sport’s four main sanctioning organisations, issued a statement earlier this week stating that the victor of Sunday’s battle would be included in their official top-40 cruiserweight rankings. The winner will also get a commemorative belt, according to reports.

Jake Preview of Paul vs. Tommy Fury
Paul (6-0, 4 KOs) has one significant edge over Fury in that the former Disney actor has greater high-pressure fighting experience. Paul has headlined four consecutive pay-per-view shows and has never been lower than the co-main event in any of his six contests.
Fury’s largest crowds have occurred as part of the undercard on Tyson Fury’s heavyweight championship defence against Dillian Whyte in April of last year, as well as on one of Paul’s main events. In August 2021, Fury featured on the undercard of Paul’s debut bout against Tyron Woodley. Fury won a four-round decision against Anthony Taylor, a former Bellator MMA fighter with just one prior professional boxing encounter. During the bout, Fury admitted to having butterflies in front of a huge audience at Rocket Mortgage Field House in Cleveland, Paul’s hometown.
Last week, Paul informed the media that he expected his experience under the spotlight to be a significant asset.
“He’s never been on such a large platform before, with this much scrutiny and pressure,” Paul remarked of Fury. “And I’m sure he’ll choke.”
While Paul began as a -200 favourite at most bookmakers, the boxing odds have plummeted in light of multiple recent reports that Fury has been strong in training and sparring sessions.
According to his father and trainer John Fury, Fury (8-0, 4 KOs) has knocked out multiple opponents in sparring sessions, including some heavyweight fighters, and sent one to the hospital. In a recent interview with the media source, the younger Fury backed up those assertions.
“I’ve never been a guy to talk about sparring sessions,” the boxer told Sky Sports. “I regularly deal with folks in the gym who would knock Jake Paul out next week.”
Fury also said that if they fight in the main event on Sunday, Paul would never box again as a professional.
