Fury will be the first legitimate boxer Paul has ever competed against as he tries to make it a fifth win by KO.  Both of Paul's prior attempts to fight Fury, who is the heavyweight champion Tyson Fury's half-brother, were unsuccessful for various reasons.

The head of Most Valuable Promotions, Paul, was instrumental in putting together an undercard for this bout that will feature several up-and-coming boxers who are still waiting for their big break. Let's take a closer look at whose lacing them up before the main event goes off.
