Tommy Fury won his boxing match against Jake Paul on February 26 - but how much was he paid to fight?
Tommy Fury finally met Jake Paul in the boxing ring for the first time on Sunday, February 26, after previously scheduling two fights in the past - both of which never happened.
They were first set to clash in 2021, with former Love Island star Tommy withdrawing at the time citing injury and illness. Their rescheduled fight was then set to take place in August 2022 before travel issues prevented Tommy from getting to the US to attend the fight.
After years of fighting talk, Tommy won against Jake on 26th February, dedicating his win to girlfriend Molly-Mae Hague and daughter Bambi, and Jake has already stated he wants a rematch after the judges voted a split decision in Tommy's favour.

How much was Tommy Fury paid to fight Jake Paul?
According to Sports Zion, the boyfriend of Molly-Mae Hague earned $2 million (£1.6 million) and 35% of the pay-per-view share - which means in total he took home $4.5 million (£3.7 million) after beating Jake.
Meanwhile, YouTube star Jake was set to make around $3.2 million (£2.6 million), if he'd won. However, he did get to take home 65% of the overall PPV sales.
Jake's match against Tommy was his first loss since taking up the profession in 2018.
The YouTuber, who is the brother of vlogger Logan Paul, had registered six wins from six fights, including four KOs.
Meanwhile, Tommy, who is the younger half-brother of Tyson Fury, had won eight from eight fights, also with four KOs.
Tommy spent months training for his highly-anticipated fight, returning to camp after he and Molly-Mae welcomed their baby girl Bambi in January.
