Jake Paul has disclosed that he earned a staggering $30 million (£25 million) despite losing his first boxing match to Tommy Fury. The former YouTuber and children’s television personality put up a good fight against Fury, the younger sibling of heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, during their eight-round bout in Saudi Arabia. Although Paul dominated for some of the fight, he failed to secure a knockout punch, resulting in two judges declaring Fury the winner by a split decision.
In a video posted on Instagram, the 26-year-old Paul was seen feigning tears before breaking into a grin, captioning the footage, “When you lost but made $30m.” Despite the loss, the fight garnered significant interest, and the pair may meet again in a highly lucrative rematch. Paul indicated that he would trigger a contract option for a second bout, stating that his preparation for the first encounter had been hampered by illness and injury. He acknowledged Fury’s victory and expressed his desire for a rematch, saying, “We can run it back. I think we deserve that rematch. This is definitely a humbling experience. I’ve made it further than I ever thought that I would, and beyond.”
