The Jake Paul-Tommy Fury pay-per-view numbers are in — if you want to believe comments made by the YouTuber-turned-boxer.
Paul was talking to his older brother Logan Paul during a special post-fight edition of his podcast, BS with Jake Paul, when he allegedly revealed the massive amount of pay-per-view buys for the event which leads to major pay days for each fighter.
Jake said that the fight will likely be the most-watched PPV fight of the year and that the close-to-accurate numbers put the event at over 500,000 pay-per-view buys.
At $50 a piece, that would mean the event brought in a minimum of $25 million.

Paul said that he is still upset about the split decision loss, but Logan jumped in to say he would like to be next for Tommy Fury if there is not a Fury vs. Jake Paul 2.
“If you don’t (have a rematch), I’d like to handle that,” Logan said, “that was like, my first instinct, obviously.”
The 23-year-old Fury is now 9-0 in his professional boxing career with four knockouts. As an added bonus for Fury, he gets to parade around with a special new WBC “Diriyah Champion” belt for winning the pay-per-view showdown.
