The time for talk is over. Jake Paul vs. Tommy Fury is set to go down on Sunday, February 26 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Paul vs. Fury will be co-promoted by Paul’s Most Valuable Promotions and Top Rank Boxing, and air live on ESPN+ pay-per-view beginning at 2:00 p.m. ET.
It is the biggest fight of Paul’s professional boxing career and the biggest payday of Fury’s.
But how much will each fighter earn for the night?
