Jake Paul vs Tommy Fury live streaming press conference ahead of Canelo vs Plant

Jake Paul is in Las Vegas as Showtime looks to take advantage of the Canelo-Plant buzz today.

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

Jake Paul and Tommy Fury are set to face one another on December 18 in a Showtime pay-per-view main event, and like all mega-important, big-time boxing fights, they’re popping their heads up during another mega-important, big-time fight weekend.

With Canelo-Plant coming to us tonight, also a Showtime pay-per-view, Paul and Fury are in Las Vegas to officially announce their fight with a press conference, which you can stream live up top at 2 pm ET.

Paul (4-0, 3 KO) is coming off of the most serious test of his novelty boxing career, beating Tyron Woodley via decision on Aug. 29 in Cleveland. Fury (7-0, 4 KO), the half-brother of heavyweight king Tyson Fury, also fought on that card, winning a four-round decision over Anthony Taylor, and not exactly setting the world ablaze with his performance.

Paul vs Fury has been brewing for a while now, and the deal is done. Fury will not be in attendance at today’s presser, but his new trainer SugarHill Steward — who is Tyson’s current trainer — will be there in his place to, I don’t know, make a ridiculous bet for children with Jake Paul, I suppose.

Paul vs Fury will take place in Tampa, Fla., and will reportedly also feature the boxing debut of 37-year-old former NBA star Deron Williams, who may face 38-year-old former NFL star Frank Gore.
