How to watch Jake Paul vs. Tommy Fury
Streaming information and more for the Jake Paul vs. Tommy Fury
YouTuber turned boxer Jake Paul faces perhaps the toughest opponent of his career on Sunday when he squares off with Tommy Fury. The cruiserweight bout between the two has been years in the making. They were initially scheduled to fight back in December of 2021, but Fury suffered a rib injury which forced the bout to be rescheduled. A new date was set in August of 2022, but Fury was denied entry into the United States.
Sunday afternoon they will finally meet after nearly two years of jawing between the two, and here is how you can watch.
When: Sunday, February 25 (main card starts at 2:00 p.m., ET, with the Paul-Fury bout schedule for approximately 5:00 p.m. ET)
Where: Diriyah Arena, Diriyah, Saudi Arabia
TV/live stream: ESPN+ PPV
DraftKings Sportsbook odds: Paul -155, Fury +130
There has been discussion in recent days over whether this is really as tough of a challenge for Paul as is being let on. Fury, the younger half-brother of heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, has an unblemished 8-0 record with 4 KOs, but his opponents have a combined record of 24-176-5.
Paul’s last fight came on October 29. On that night he took a unanimous decision over UFC Hall of Famer Anderson Silva. Fury last fought on April 23, 2022, beating Daniel Bocianski (11-2) on “points” in a six-round fight. That bout came on the undercard of the Tyson Fury-Dillian Whyte fight, which Fury won in a sixth-round TKO.

Haas F1 offers an incredible example of their reliability during pre-season testing
Haas driver Kevin Magnussen highlighted how reliable the VF-23 was this week in Bahrain
Pre-season testing ahead of the 2023 Formula 1 season is now complete, and all ten teams are pouring through mountains of data accumulated over three days at Bahrain International Circuit. While lap times are to be taken with a grain of salt, as teams are using different fuel loads, tyre compounds, and running different programs, reliability is perhaps the biggest lesson teams can learn during testing.
Haas driver Kevin Magnussen offered an amazing indicator of where their VF-23 was at the conclusion of testing, in a statement shared with the media including SB Nation. “It’s been a busy three days and that’s a very positive thing. Today we got a lot of laps in, and I was in the car from the beginning to the end – I only came out to go to the toilet!”
It was a solid three days of work for Magnussen, Nico Hülkenberg, and the entire Haas team. They completed 414 laps over the three days in Bahrain, fourth-most among the ten teams:

For Hülkenberg, it was a “good” three days that provided the team with a ton of information about the VF-23, information that is important for both the engineers, and the drivers. “All in all, it’s been good. I’ve got mileage in the car and I think I got what I was personally looking for, to get off on a good foot with the car, and find a good connection and harmony,” said Hülkenberg after testing. “I feel comfortable that the car does what I say and not the other way around. We’ve collected huge amounts of data that the team will go through and analyze over the next few days, and it’s all information that’s important for a driver as well.”
As for where Haas might stack up when the lap times count for real, that is still an open question. The feeling around Haas is that the team could push to the top of the midfield this season. Former F1 driver Jolyon Palmer called the pairing of Magnussen and Hülkenberg the “best ever lineup for Haas,” and some outlets have listed Haas among the winners of pre-season testing.
Team Principal Guenther Steiner keeps his cards close to his chest, but did admit there was progress from last year. “In general, the test went very smoothly with very few issues compared to years before. The whole team came here very well prepared – we did our homework – so when we arrived, we were ready to go, and you could see that,” said Steiner on Saturday. “It was good progress from last year so now we need to see where we stack-up. It’s difficult to say still but we are in the midfield, let’s see if we’re at the top or the end of the midfield but we’re now ready for the race next weekend.”
