Jake Paul was hospitalised after taking body shot – and Tommy Fury will be well aware
Tommy Fury may look to take advantage of one particular weakness when he steps into the ring with Jake Paul in three weeks' time.
The Florida bout will be a huge test for the YouTuber, as he will finally have the chance to prove that his professional boxing career does actually have some legs.
His four wins so far have all come against those who have made their names in other sports or ventures, and who had never boxed professionally before facing him.
So Paul's first bout with an actual boxer will be a watershed moment, and fans will finally learn the answer to one question which still remains – can Jake Paul take a punch?
One piece of evidence which suggests not is the fact he was hospitalised after taking a body shot during a workout with Ryan Garcia, the 23-year-old who has taken the lightweight scene by storm.
That happened in June 2020, and Paul has fought three times professionally since then – so there's little doubting he will have toughened up since then and has at least a little more experience.
But it gives Fury a decent-looking option when it comes to his fight strategy – one clean blow to the body could end Paul's hopes for good.
But the American is confident that his preparation puts him in the best position to be able to claim victory, and by doing so end Fury's career before it truly begins.
Who will win the fight between Tommy Fury and Jake Paul on December 18? Have your say in the comments section.
The younger brother of world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury is undefeated in his first seven outings, but looked poor in his last win over Paul's sparring partner Anthony Taylor.
Taylor is once again working with Paul in his Puerto Rico training camp, alongside head trainer BJ Flores and super-middleweight JLeon Love.
Paul believes his extra preparation is what is going to make the difference on fight night.

"I was secretly in camp for seven weeks before Tommy signed the contract while he was at the club partying, smoking cigars at his brothers fight, and eating Krispy Kremes on cute dates with Molly," the former Disney kid wrote on Instagram.
"For the first time in my career the oddsmakers made me the underdog for this fight. I LOVE IT.
"I’ve been the underdog my whole life. Always been counted out. Always had the uphill battle.
"All of my opponents have cut corners and taken me lightly. By this time it’s too late to make changes to try and beat me.
The Best Sniper Rifles
The best Sniper Rifle in Battlefield 2042 is the DXR-1. However, there is another sniper rifle that you can use well in the game quite well, the SWS-10.
We do not recommend the NTW-50, even though it has the potential to take down your target with a single body shot. The reason it is not a good rifle has nothing to do with its damage, though. The NTW-50 has the lowest Bullet Speed, Accuracy, and Range of all Sniper Rifles, defeating the purpose of picking a weapon in this category in the first place.
The go-to weapon, in this case, would be the DXR-1, which has the longest range and the most negligible bullet drop of all Sniper Rifles, making it much easier to aim at targets on the other side of the map.
On the other hand, there are situations where the SWS-10 can be pretty useful.
This sniper is one of the best starting weapons in Battlefield 2042. It is ready to go from the moment you first start playing the game.
Of course, unlocking the best SWS-10 attachments will help you play better, and in this case, there is a specific build that makes this rifle quite effective in smaller maps. This is not necessarily the best build for general use of the SWS-10.
Consider using it only when you are using the DXR-1 in most maps. In that case, you might not need its range in the smaller battlefields, making the SWS-10 a good choice with some extra bullets:
- BKS 8X Sights: This is the go-to Sights attachment for most snipers
- Long Barrel: You need this attachment to have a bit more range and bullet speed with the SWS-10
- Extended Mag Ammunition: There’s no real downside when compared to the Standard Issue
- LS-1 Laser Sight Underbarrel: Better Hipfire Accuracy for when your enemies get too close
If you have already unlocked the DXR-1, you won’t need any other sniper rifle. Make sure you know how to level up fast in Battlefield 2042 if you want to get your hands on this weapon earlier. You can use the SWS-10 with the recommended attachments in the contexts mentioned above, but you don’t need to.
The DXR-1 has the longest range of all Sniper Rifles, making it much easier to aim consistently at targets on all maps.
Once you unlock this weapon, you just need to dedicate some time to get its best attachments. Here is the best DXR-1 setup:
- BKS 8X Sights: As mentioned above, they are the go-to Sights attachment for Sniper Rifles
- Long Barrel: With this attachment, you will have more bullet velocity
- High Power Ammunition: With this ammo type, you will have even more damage and range
Teofimo Lopez vs. Vasiliy Lomachenko (16-0)
One of the biggest upsets in combat sports in 2020 was Lopez’s unanimous win against Lomachenko for the lightweight championship.
Lopez was paying $4.30, while the favorite Lomachenko was paying $1.20 to win at MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
The underdog started strong and Lomachenko could not figure him out like he usually does against his other opponents.
Lopez took away Lomachenko’s elite footwork and use of unique angles by pressuring the Olympic champion.
The challenger dug deep and overpowered one of the best boxers the world has ever seen.
The bell rang and it was clear that Lopez was the new undisputed lightweight champion of the world.
Jon Jones's dynamic reach and height advantage over the majority of his opponents allows him to effortlessly dictate the range of his strikes. This has led to the former champion consistently using knees, kicks, crosses, and hooks in his offensive, while he looks to break his opponents and make them quit.
The thunderous body knee he landed on Shogun Rua is one of his most famous knockouts, and to this day is a highly-viewed UFC highlight. Jones has consistently made body strikes a significant part of his game plan throughout his MMA career.
These are the ways in which you could consider challenging yourself to build resilience:
1. Engaging in difficult physical activities or events.
2. Learning a new language or instrument.
3. Getting out of your comfort zone and meeting new people or potential partners.
“We desperately want to go back to when times were harder, physically and mentally harder. I think some of us want to really test ourselves. We don’t get tested in the ways that we used to in ancestral times.”
“What do you do on a daily basis to get into a hard place, and practice being there, and getting slightly comfortable being there? What do you do on a monthly basis, and what do you do on an annual basis? Something really big. And it doesn’t necessarily need to be a physical challenge, although sport and exercise are often the first things that we look for. It might be about learning a new instrument, learning a new language.”
1 C5 Explosive
|Effect||Deploy a brick of explosives that can be remotely detonated. For a larger blast, stack multiple C5 charges together.|
C5 Explosives are incredibly strong in 2042. Two bricks are enough to destroy most light-armor vehicles. Three can destroy any vehicle in the game. In past Battlefield games, this gadget was kept in check by the lack of mobility on infantry and its restriction to a few classes.
Those restrictions are gone now, and the end result is an arguably overpowered gadget that is really easy to use. You can pair this gadget with Casper's Drone to make a mobile bomb that one-shots vehicles, Mackay to throw C5 mid-air or onto aircraft, or Sundance to effectively become a bomber. If that wasn't enough, you can easily set traps in elevators or narrow corridors with this gadget to land some easy infantry kills. Once you get used to how C5 works, it's hard to use anything else.
The glitch shows one Bibarel mounting another when all you really want them to do is surf.
