Jake Paul might get the chance to not only redeem his only loss in boxing but also make his long-awaited PFL MMA debut.

According to Nakisa Bidarian, co-founder of Jake Paul’s Most Valuable Promotions, an offer has been extended to Tommy Fury that would reunite the YouTuber turned professional boxer and the only man to defeat him.

The offer includes a do-over in boxing that would lead to a trilogy fight under mixed martial arts rules under the PFL banner should Jake Paul win. The news was first reported by ESPN. PFL founder Donn Davis, who was instrumental in signing Jake Paul for any MMA endeavors, told the outlet that Fury could potentially make between $15 to $20 million if both fights came to fruition. 

Bidarian said that the boxing rematch was worth a “high seven-figure number” for Fury. “There’s a path there where it’s worth close to $20 million of guaranteed money to reengage in the Jake Paul competition, effectively.”

Will Jake Paul Get His Chance for Redemption?

Jake Paul and Tommy Fury first met in February of 2023. Fury, the younger brother of undefeated heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, walked away with a split-decision win despite being dropped in the eighth and final round. 

Both men have added wins to their records since. Fury earned a majority decision win over KSI in October while Jake Paul rebounded with a decision over former UFC standout Nate Diaz before scoring a first-round knockout of Andre August in December.

Before Paul can commit to preparing for a potential double-header against Fury, he must first handle former Golden Gloves champ Ryan Bourland next month. The bout will serve as a co-main event to Amando Serrano’s title defense against Nina Meinke.
