Liam Smith is backing Tommy Fury to emerge victorious if he ever faces Jake Paul in an eagerly anticipated grudge match.
Smith, fresh from his stunning win over Chris Eubank Jr last weekend, was a guest on The DAZN Boxing Show and he offered his opinions on one of the biggest fights that’s currently available in the sport.
Paul has made a slow transition to boxing with the bulk of his wins coming over stars from other sports including MMA and basketball.

The pair were meant to share the ring twice already but an injury to Fury followed by the British fighter enduring visa problems means that the rivalry has still not been settled.
Smith is the latest to offer his verdict on the possible encounter.
“I do think it’s a good fight. I’ve always said that Jake Paul is the best out of all the YouTubers,” said Smith when speaking with Ak and Barak.
“I do think it’s a good fight, but I’d probably have to go with Fury.”
Watch Smith discuss a variety of subjects on The DAZN Boxing Show including Chris Eubank Jr, Conor Benn, and his future.
