Jake Paul claims Cristiano Ronaldo will be ringside to cheer him on during grudge match with Tommy Fury

According to Jake Paul, Cristiano Ronaldo will watch the highly anticipated matchup between Fury and Paul on Sunday in Saudi Arabia.

There is an enormous amount excitement surrounding the upcoming boxing bout between Jake Paul and Tommy Fury at the Diriyah Arena in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

In the midst of all this anticipation, Jake Paul has made a claim that is sure to excite fans even more. The YouTuber turned boxer has stated that football superstar Cristiano Ronaldo will be in attendance at the event.

Ronaldo, who is now based in Saudi Arabia after signing a $186 million-a-year contract with Al-Nassr, has been a topic of discussion since his arrival in the country. It seems that he will now be adding to the hype surrounding the Paul-Fury event.

Jake Paul has been preparing at the Kamani Club in Dubai, where he has been training hard for the past few weeks. His opponent, Tommy Fury, has also been training hard, with an 8-0 professional record to back up his skills in the ring.

Despite the picture perfect record on paper, Fury’s opponent quality has been highly questionable.

Joe Rogan even got into a contentious conversation with Dave Portnoy over the fact that Fury is likely not nearly as good as his big brother.

Paul has wins over MMA veterans and has yet to face an experienced boxer.

He has called out former super-middleweight champion Carl Froch and tweeted that he made more in one year than Froch did in his entire career.

Froch, however, was not impressed, responding by saying that Paul is not a professional boxer, but a “performing clown.” He went on to warn Paul that if he is “stupid enough” to take a match with him, his “right hand” will put him into “orbit” and knock his “stupid barnet” off the top of his head.

Paul challenged Froch to a match against former UFC champion Anderson Silva and promised he would face Froch if he’s victorious.
