Jake Paul vs Tommy Fury fight card: Who’s boxing tonight?

While the two braggadocios main fighters of tonight’s boxing match are certainly causing a lot of buzz, the rest of the Jake Paul vs Tommy Fury fight card is just as exciting. In fact, many boxing fans are tuning in for the undercards rather than for Paul or Fury. It’s sure to be a fun night of intense face offs, with the potential for a couple knockouts. The fights are in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, and start at 2 p.m. ET on Sunday, February 26. Here is a breakdown of the Jake Paul vs Tommy Furry full fight card, including the boxing record for each fighter, so you know exactly what to expect when you tune in to the Jake Paul vs Tommy Fury live stream later today.

Of course the stars of the show are Jake Paul (6-0, 4 KOs), the provocative YouTuber the fans lover to hate, and Tommy Fury (8-0, 4 KOs), the brother of champion boxer Tyson Fury and a longtime enemy of Paul. The focus of their rivalry has been less on their physical abilities and more on their trash talking. The two have been at each others’ throats since 2021 when their first scheduled fight was cancelled. This match has been pushed back more than once, with the last one being cancelled due to Fury being barred from entering the US. That’s the main reason this fight is happening in Saudi Arabia — neutral ground. Whatever your feelings on the two may be, both are undefeated, so tensions will be high.

The biggest undercard fight of the day is arguably more important for boxing history. Ilunga Junior Makabu (29-2, 25 KOs) will defend his WBC Cruiserweight Title for the third time, this one against Badou Jack (29-3-3, 16 KOs). This fight is also at the Cruiserweight class, the same as Paul vs Fury. Makabu is a heavy hitter who will likely be looking for the knockout to prove he deserves the belt. He’s only defended it twice since he scooped up the vacant belt with a win in 2020.

There are some earlier undercard fights as well with some less well-known fighters. Starting right at 2 p.m. ET, Bader Samreen (7-0-0, 0 KOs) will fight Viorel Simion (23-9-0, 9 KOs) for a lightweight bout. At 22 and 41 years of age, respectively, Simion is nearly twice as old as Samreen. Samreen is the favorite by a longshot. Next up, Muhsin Cason (10-0-0, 7 KOs) fights Taryel Jarafov (18-5-0, 17 KOs) in another cruiserweight match. Cason is looking to stand out as a promising upcoming fighter, while Jarafov looks to add another KO to his impressive knockout ratio. Finally, Ziyad Alaamayouf (1-0, 0 KOs) will face off against Ronald Martinez (2-1-1, 0 KOs) in a junior welterweight bout. The two new fighters are hoping to make a name for themselves on the world stage.

There are no preliminary fights scheduled for tonight, so you’ll see all the action when you buy the PPV. Tonight’s match is being show on ESPN+ for $50. It’s going to be a long night of interesting matchups, culminating in the long-awaited showdown between two big, boastful personalities. Like in all the best boxing movies, fights are always better when a rivalry is in the mix. Tonight’s fight card has more than one.

A classic ’90s summer blockbuster is on sale for Amazon Prime Day
Two people run away from a tornado in Twister.

What were you doing on May 10, 1996? Some of you weren't even born yet, while others may not remember your day-to-day activities 28 years ago. I recall exactly what I was doing that one hot summer day in Texas: sitting in a packed air-conditioned theater watching a much-hyped movie with quarreling lovers, digital storms, and one famous flying cow.

Twister was the year's must-see event, a movie that didn't have much of a story but made up for it with its still-impressive visual effects. Jan de Bont's weather thriller left an impression on the audiences that saw it, and nearly 30 years later, we're finally getting a follow-up (not a sequel!) in the form of Twisters, which is directed by Minari filmmaker Lee Isaac Chung and starring Glen Powell, Daisy Edgar-Jones, and Anthony Ramos. That movie is sure to be one of the season's biggest hits, and fans old and new are sure to be looking to own a copy of the original.
How much is Twister, and where can I get it?

30 years ago, this action movie changed Hollywood forever. But was it for better or worse?
A man points a gun in True Lies.

No one blinks anymore when a movie costs $100 million. That’s what most Hollywood movies cost today, isn’t it? It’s what Apple spent, for example, on this past weekend’s Fly Me to the Moon, the kind of frothy, human-scaled, adult-oriented comedy that’s often cited as counterprogramming to the expensive blockbusters the studios otherwise bankroll. Meanwhile, last year’s The Creator was celebrated for achieving its eye-popping special-effects spectacle for the low, low price of… $80 million. Executives now cross the nine-figures line like it’s nothing.

There was a time, of course, when $100 million still meant something — when it was not just a high price tag for a movie, but the highest. Thirty years ago, the summer action-comedy True Lies exploded into theaters, ushering the film industry into a new era of budgetary extravagance. The Arnold Schwarzenegger vehicle marked the first time a studio coughed up $100 million before marketing. It was, in cost (if not scale or performance), the biggest movie ever made up to that point.

One of 2023’s best movies is now on sale for Amazon Prime Day. Here’s how to get it
A boy and man encounter creatures in The Boy and the Heron.

2023 was a great year for movies. Oppenheimer, All of Us Strangers, Barbie, and Anatomy of a Fall are just some of the many movies that were hits with both critics and audiences alike. Part of that elite group is a movie that took many by surprise as being one of the most striking, and popular, movies of last year.

When it debuted in the United States on December 8, The Boy and the Heron was already a hit in its home country of Japan, but it also struck a chord with American audiences. It became the rare non-English language animated movie to debut at No. 1 at the box office, grossing $12.8 million in three days on its way to reaping nearly $300 million worldwide. Now, you can own one of the greatest animated movies ever, and you don't have to break the bank thanks to the sweet deal being offered during Amazon Prime Day.
